Headphone jacks that don’t work in Pavilion dv6

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


Want your suggestions on what to do for headphone jacks that don’t seem to work in Pavilion dv6 that I just bought. A friend told me that this is probably because of a missing driver because everything seems okay, even the setting. I went to Future Shop for a replacement but sad to say, the similar unit was out of stock already.

Hallo Bondee,

Does the computer's speakers work properly when you play say music on the computer? If it does then we rule out the possibility that the sound box may be having problems.

The possible cause could  therefore be missing drivers for the headphones and therefore you will need to install them from the device manager. Once you are in the device manager, right click on the sound drivers and then click update drivers and then choose the option for updating the drivers online.

Once the update is done restart the computer and see if the headphones work properly.
