    Hello, my name is Nick White and I am new to these forums. If you can help me, this would be greatly appreciated. I have a Toshiba Satellite computer with a Notebook model and a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system. This laptop computer has an Intel Core i3 processor. My problem is that my Skull Candy headphones will let me hear everything except the files in my Windows Media Player. When I try to play those files, the files will play through my speakers even when the headphones are plugged into the headphone jack. When I unplug the headphones, everything works fine. Any suggestions as to how this can be fixed? This is weird and it is freaking me out!:mad:

    Welcome to the forums!

    Try this:

    Go to Control Panel, click on Hardware and Sound.
    Click on Sound.
    The devices should come up ; speakers, Digital Audio, and headphones
    Plug your headphones in then select headphones. At the bottom it will say set as default. Select that.
    Then when you disconnect your headphones it should automatically switch to the speakers and when you plug them back in it should automatically will switch to headphones.
