Fixing nc8540p EliteBook: headphone jack problem in Windows 7

May 6th, 2011

This post is about how to fix sound problem in nc8540p EliteBook laptop with Windows 7 Pro (x64) . Just recently, I’ve had a problem with my headphone jacks. When I plug in my headphones, the sound still comes out of the laptop speakers, but no sound comes out of the headphones.
Doing some search in the internet I have got a solution (in my case it works) – IDT audio driver has to be installed instead Microsoft’s one.
1. Download IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver from HP site here.

2. Install it and restart computer.

3. enjoy
