    headphone problem

    My headphones have suddenly stopped working when plugged into the laptop.

    I have gone through the usual rigmarole, "manage audio devices"..."sound" but the problem is, is that the headphones do not show up. Just speakers. I know the headphones are, themselves, working but am I right to think it may be the laptop headphone socket itself that isn't working ?

    You'll have restarted the laptop?

    I can't imagine the hardware suddenly died, that would be very rare. Though the laptop I happen to be ripping some CDs onto my phone with seems to have no working speaker under Microsoft Windows 8.1.

    Once you've restarted with the headphones unplugged, start playing something. Plug in the headphones. Do the speakers cut out, at least?

    If you normally hear the Windows Startup chime, do you hear the Windows Startup chime on the speakers?

    Have you considered the attractions of the pub?

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Well ! A restart should always be the default problem solver but because I had just turned it on it didn't occur to me.

    That's solved it and only half an hour before Honey G whines her way under my skin.

    Had that not worked, a Guinness in the local would have been my only course of action.

    And spot. Honey G should remain a mystery. Please don't attempt to find out who, or what she is. It will only end in tears

    I can now review my "likes" saved through my Spotify, in peace, drowning all extraneous noises emanating from the TV

    Very proper too. I spent the last ten minutes finding the right size black nitrile grommet to keep a glass tap located properly. Pack of ten £2.80 from Shanghai including postage. It's like ironmongers have suddenly been resurrected.

    My CD-ripping has now put tracks on my phone that really have no place in any civilized environment and I can Bluetooth them onto my public address system with nobody knowing where that dreadful noise is coming from, though I did it so I can fly more comfortably next Saturday.

    I bought a watch from that side of the world a couple of years ago. Shanghai not The Gambia.

    Two watch faces, a thermometer and a compass. All on one strap for a fiver. Just never had the balls to wear it public.

    What have I stepped into ?
    I know I'm not drunk or high.........but the conversation is quite surreal.......I have led a sheltered life though.
