I tried to go through the steps but volume control options was not available. I forgot to mention I have windows 7, that might be why?
Also went through all the steps on the link and 1) I have the current drivers
and 2) when I click the folder in the audio manager, it doesnt give me the option to disable front panel jack detection. this is what I get
I also disabled the realtek digital output as it said, didn't work
