I plugged my headphones into my HP vs17e monitor to listen to music and play games with the volume turned up. Now when I remove them (headphones), no sound comes out of the speakers. I think my monitor thinks their still plugged in. Restarting my pc doesn't work. Does anyone know how to fix it?
Check cable connections between the monitor and the sound card/motherboard output, you could unadventedly dislodged it, check the monitor speaker volume control on the monitor menu. If all else fails connect the headphone input directly to the PC case front or back sound output - much better than via the monitor anyway - shorter pathway makes better sound, last but not least: use a better set of speakers - monitor speakers suck
