Having problems with your Dell Vostro 220 Desktop Computer ?

Can't get headphone jack on front of computer to work

\015 Also do I have to have powered speakers plugged into the back for headphones to work out of the front port? Thanks\015

Answers :

The headphone jack up front may not be connected to the PC's integrated audio on the motherboard (or to the PC's sound card if you purchased one with the system instead. There'll be an audio cable running from the front of the computer to a port on the motherboard. If you look at this motherboard diagram for the Vostro 220 (not the 420 or 220s), it'll be the port numbered "15" that's the opne for the audio for the front panel.\015\012\015\012You don't need the speakers plugged on the back to have the headphones work, but having them plugged in will at least tell you if the sound is working or not.

The built-in speakers on my HP w2408h do not work. I checked the sound generating electronics in my HP computer with a headphone. That worked. I plugged in the sound patch cord to the headphone jack in the front panel. The Control Panel Sound ap shows that the computer recognized the monitor's built-in speakers whether they are plugged in to the front or the back of the computer. They just are not producing any sounds when I test them or any other time.
