Sound issue, have to use optical to get green 3.5mm port to work

  Maxspeelman 13:08 28 Feb 14

To get my headphone jack, the green 3.5mm one to work I have to have another cable plugged into the optical line, if I try and switch from headphones too speakers by swapping the cables I get no sound and have to reboot with the cables in the position I want them in to get it back. When I switch the cables it changes from Speakers to Realtek Digital Output, there is an optical and non-optical option.

This is getting incredibly annoying as I have to reboot my computer if I want to use headphones.

What can I do to fix this?

When you change to headphones right click the sound icon in the notification area on the desktop. Select playback devices and make the 'phones default and vice versa.
