Speakers Are Not Muting When Headphones Are Connected
When headphones are connected in the front panel of Dimension E510, 5150, 5150C, 9150 or XPS 200 and 400 systems, all with onboard sound, the 5.1 speakers might not mute. Also with these systems, the microphone is connected to the back connector of the system.
Switch the microphone connection to the front of the computer.
Switch the microphone connection from the back of the computer to the microphone connector on the front of the computer . The speakers will mute properly when the microphone is connected to the front jack. (Figure 1)
