RE: Headphones plugged in but playing through speakers

So right now you have the Windows native audio driver installed but the headphone jack does not work? Try going to the Playback tab of the Sound properties (right click on the speaker icon and select Playback devices), and if Headphones are listed separately from Speakers, make Headphones the default device.

RE: Headphones plugged in but playing through speakers

Sorry but I cannot think of an explanation for why the Windows native driver is not working right. It is usually pretty dependable, except in Windows 10 where it does not always work right with the headphone jack.
