    Wierd Problem

    Compaq Presario V3000
    Intel Celeron M
    512MB RAM
    Shared Video
    High Definition Audio Device
    Windows Vista

    Problem: Earphone Jack
    Status: When I connect the earphone to the jack in the laptop the laptop's built-in speakers keep on playing. So now sounds are coming from the earphone and the laptop speakers. Before, if I connect an earphone the laptop's speakers is off . The problem started when I upgraded my Windows XP to Vista Basic.

    Measures Done:
    I taped the laptop speaker's so I won't hear the sounds coming from it. Then I started listening in my earphones

    My first thought is that it isn't the software. Usually the earphone jack has a shunt mechanism that disables sound to the speakers when plugged in. Make sure the earphone jack is inserted properly.

    This means nothing... just so happens everything happens during something else going on ignore this.

    Your laptop has a "short" in the jack... needs to be replaced.

    I've seen this exact same thing with a students laptop and a similar model that you have a few weeks ago.

    Thanks a lot guys! Cased solved.
    I replaced my earphone with a new one and;
    I have tried reinstalling my sound driver.
    My laptop is getting sticky from the tape's adhesive stuck in the speakers.

    It was a coincidence after all.
