oh! a reply! lol
.....to me it looks like a glitch or something...IDT audio has settings for 2 jacks. 1 for headphones and 1 for a mic. But the dm1 notebook only has 1 jack for either a mic or headphones. Therefore, IDT Audio is not sure if headphones or a mic is connected. At times it seems so confused and the settings change at random every second! lol....as if it has a life of its own!.....
Its driving me up the wall!

hey, this is something that can help but is NOT a solution...
when i stick a 2 way jack spliter on the jack port the sound will stop coming out of the notebook speakers at the same time. But it still doesn't recognize it as headphones!
Hope that can help until we can find a better and proper solution...

Many people have this problem, who do not have, is because they do not use headphones.
Does the manager to use another to replace IDT?

Hi guys. I've the same issue related. Three months ago i've posted the problem on this forum and in the brazilian HP support forum. I changed my DM1 by a new, but the problem continues.
I think this problem is chronic. In the new dm1z the audio jack is separated (one audio jack and one mic jack). In other words, HP knew the problem. Think about that.

yeah the problem just started recently here too!...just a few months after I got mine...
I think an alternative to IDT PC AUDIO would do the trick. 1 that knows that there is only 1 jack...lol
or even just a software update for IDT?
I recieve email notifications for new posts.
So, I'm watching this space! lol

jack, this issue , in my view, occurs because the drive don't properly handle this phone jack when the phone plug (most common) are connected. Probably a bug that is not getting the attention of the IDT. Later I'll try to build an adapter to resolve the problem. If this works, I'll post a tutorial here.
ps: It will be only a stopgap. Should solve the problem until HP decides to comment on.

Hi, i solved the problem on my DM1-3100e with an 4-pol. adapter with 1 headphone and 1 microphone output, as shown in picture below. Maybe the 4-pol. headset output can`t handle an 3-pol. headphone connection with the microphone shorted.
