Can't play back through my headphones
Aug 26, 2009, 12:45 AM
I can't seem to play back webinars, or any videos, cd's ect through my headphones, but only my speakers. I can hear skype conversation through my headphones but that all.
I have made my logitech USB headset the default option but that didn't help at all.
I am not sure what sound card I have unfortunately.
Can someone help me work out how to play back through my headset?

Have you tried another pair of headphones, one that plugs into your motherboard's green 3.5mm audio jack? These are usually better than USB headsets, which place some load on your CPU.

I haven't got another headset and don't really want to have to buy a new set unless I really have to, also when I try headphones through that jack it also doesn't work.
anyone else got ideas?
