If your external speakers/headphones aren't working, try the following...

1. Go to "Control Panel".
2. Click on "Sound".
3. Make sure you are on the "Playback" tab.
4. Single click on the headphones in the list to highlight it.
5. Now right click on it and select the option to make it the default.
6. When you are done with your changes, in "Properties", click "Apply" and then "OK".
8. Then click "OK", again, on the main "Sound window".

NOTE: If the headphones don't show in there, right click on the white background of that window and make sure both "Show disabled devices" and "Show disconnected devices" is checked.

Should you still not see the headphones, right click on the "Speakers", only while the headphones are plugged in, and disable them. This may resolve the issue. Be sure you test that the speakers work again, when you unplug the headphones.
