Headset no longer works with CD drive Tags: Headsets CD Drives Laptops Last response: February 22, 2010 12:15 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share KenGross February 12, 2010 6:16:15 AM I have a Compal notebook I bought a year and a half ago from Sager. Last year after I upgraded from Vista 64 to Windows 7 my headset stopped working with the CD drive. I do have the latest drivers for the Compal hardware. My headset does work fine with internet movies, and if I unplug the headset (it's hardwired) the laptop speakers play the CD just fine. What's the problem?

Try messing with a few of the settings in the sound properties, i.e. setting the main option for headphones instead of speakers, etc... KenGross February 12, 2010 7:00:22 AM The headset is fine. If I plug a speaker into the headset ports I get the same effect. And I already messed with all the sound properties. For internet movies or music sitting on the PC the headset works just fine. It's only when the CD is playing. ONLY when the CD is playing. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

You should assume that I'm smarter than that. I was hoping for a more sensible answer. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
