Headphone's do not work
Hi all,

I recently upgraded to MS Vista Home Premium from XP and have found that my headphones do not work. They are regular headphones that one would use for an ipod. The speakers work ok. I saw the posting about plugging in the headphones before turning on the computer but that did not work. I use a Dell laptop Inspiron 9300.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Thanks
MS

Hi MS,

I have heard of this happening before. Try download the latest soundcard drivers for Vista from the Dell website...http://ftp.us.dell.com/audio/R99254.EXE
