    Hello,

    I am having some issues getting sound to play through my headphone jack on my Asus GS1 Laptop. It was working just fine one day and the next time I went to use it, probably two days later, it was not working. I tried updating the audio driver to make sure that wasn't causing it but still did not fix the issue. I am able to get sound out of my speakers but once I plug in my headphones I get nothing.

    Could someone please help. Thanks!

    If speakers work through the headphone jack, then the jack must be good. Have you tried the headphones on a radio, or other device, over time the plugs do have a tendancy to loosen.

    I think he means the laptop's speakers work, not external speakers.

    make sure the driver doesn't allow the headphone port to shut off.

    doesn't the G51 have 2 headphone ports? have you tried both?
