So I recently purchased an Astro A40 headset and besides gaming I've also been using them to listen to music and stuff on my laptop. However today when I went to plug it in to my headphone jack on my laptop, the sound kept coming out of my laptop's speakers. Except if I only plugged it in about three quarters of the way, it would work. I'm trying to understand where exactly the problem is occuring as during the past couple of weeks they have worked just fine on my laptop.
Somethings to note are that my headphones still work fine when plugged into my iPod and my Astro Mixamp. Also another pair of iPod headphones I have work on my laptop just fine however it is a smaller sized connector so I'm guessing that may be why.
Basically I'm trying to figure out how/if I can fix it and whether it is a problem with the headphones themselves, the headphone jack or a software problem related to headphone jack. Note that I just installed a new windows update today just before I noticed the problem so I'm wondering if that may have something to do with it.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
