A friend has bought some external speakers for his Acer laptop that runs Vista. When they were plugged in, the laptop continued to output sound to its internal speakers. I regularly switch speakers & microphones via control panel in XP. How do you do it in Vista? Words on one sylable please - I have never seen Vista before!
Fairly sure that my Vista Acer laptop automatically turns off internal speakers when there is an external connection. Too late to check tonight. Are you getting sound in the external speakers as well as internal?
Just checked my Acer and when I plug in external speakers it does automatically switch. Are they powered speakers? Which socket are they being connected to? They should go in the headphone socket and make sure the connection is fully home.
