External Plug In Earphones and Microphone


Toshiba Laptop L305D  Vista O/S No longer  able  to  plug in  Earphone/Microphone combo to system to get sound for any Internet program (Shype, ooVoo, etc). Updated via Toshiba for sound in case  there  were updates not received.  Still  able  to have sound without plugging in earphone/mic  combo.  Seems to be  a  problem  that is  also affecting other users of same system.  Any  ideas  how  to  get  the sound  from internal sound system  to  work  with  earphone/microphone system again.


Thanks for  your  advise !

Have you checked your settings in control panel under sound?

If you unplug the mic/headphones it defaults back to built in components and you have to tell it to use the mic and headphones you plug in.
