    My first board would not always pick up headphones and would only play one channel....unless i used a headphone with a built in Mike.

    New one has been flawless.

    I have found that when in full screen applications (games) the jack detection gets silenced. If you alt-tab to desktop, plug out and back in, it shows the prompt. I believe this is normal behavior unless you change the notification settings for that. I simply turned off automatic jack detection/reassignment and have them assigned permanently to what I used them most. If I ever change them, it’s as simple as opening the Realtek application and reassigning. Try that...

    Also, my sound card has given me problems on newer (non-Dell) downloaded chipset drivers (from station-drivers), with sound completely going away from the speakers, and the only way to restore sound is to run a diagnostic, and run the sound test and when the sound ping comes through, reboot, and sound will be back. Just stick to Dell's published intel chipset software and you won’t have those issues.

    I had suspected my sound card failed, and it was the above that caused it. I’m sure many have had the sound card replaced thinking it was dead, but it’s a driver issue FOR SURE. I’ve tested it multiple times because I couldn’t believe it.
