Hi,
I have a laptop - Sony Vaio FZ190-
I have downgraded my windows vista to windows xp professional, and I downloaded some drivers I found on the internet. I installed it, and it worked like a charm. However, when I plug in my headphones, the external speakers still play! When I had vista installed, the external speakers would cut off once I inserted the headphones into the headphones jack and would play sound only though the headphones.

Yet, now, it's playing though both headphones and external speakers, which is annoying! How can I fix this?

Any help is much appreciated! Thanks! :)

Hi trickydude19,

and Welcome to G2G forums.

Your laptop "may" have settings to adjust for what you wish in:
Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices - Volume(tab) - Speaker Settings - Advanced(button)
Scroll through the pull down menu for the configuration that most suits your preference.

Keep us posted with your progress.

Best Regards

Doug-

I tried the settings under there to no avail. I even set to "no speakers" and the sounds still played!

Any other ideas? Thanks in advance!

Some BIOS have settings for this feature, and since you are getting "both" right now it seems that yours does.
Check the BIOS.

It also may be possible to select the output speaker option from whatever application (MediaPlayer, etc) that you are using to play the sound.

This problem and solutions will be highly specific to your machine, audio driver feature set, and application through which you are playing the sound.

I suppose that it is possible that downgrading to XP has removed access to the feature settings that you wish to control.

I'd sure consider posting to your machine's support forum for specific information if the above does not help.

I wish I had a better answer for you.

Best Regards
