I so hate it. I have just restarted Windows, and my headphones were working. Now they again stop working, and the laptop is using its loudspeaker.
Is there any way on Earth to diagnose the cause of this in Window 10?
I have to restart Windows 10 to make my headphone port work, instead of the speaker.
There must be some tool to find out the cause. I don't even care about fixing it. Let it stay broken. It maddens me that million of human hours went into the making of a system that does not let you investigate such a basic thing.
Why is there no tool to manually switch between the loudspeaker and the phone port?
I asked a question about this on the main site years ago, and no answer.
I recall that in the DOS times back in 1995 I could fiddle with some settings inside setting files. Now it's all gone, and the system looks totally impenetrable and incomprehensible.

@Hennes not really :D
unless they changed the MXM sockets
 
I explicitly mentined the MXM 3.1 in the current laptop.
Not that I was expecting any sensible prices on upgrades, but yesterday was the day to ask
PCE-i is backward compatible though
But you are also right since I never checked deeply in MXM. I always thought that 3.1 was the latest
 
Oh certainly!
MXM is also a standard that's almost not standard
 
Aye. And to be honest. I do not need more speed
AQ 6700 or similarin the main desktop would be nice, but on the laptop I barely game'
and a RTX 2070 already is overkill for browsing
Latest I found in mxmx sigh is 3/6/2012 MXM Graphics Module Mobile PCI Express Module Electromechanical Specification Version 3.1 Revision 1.0

Also you can set your headphone out and speaker out as 'different' outputs in realtek sound chips IIRC

I have curl on my windows 10, but curl -X POST <url:port> isn't working.
It doesn't recognize the -X flag.

I don't think curl is native

It did not solve the issue, of course, but now I have some additional sound settings )))
How do I turn off the internal speaker in Windows 10? - found a similar question online.
It's mindboggling that such a simple issue is not solved.
Gosh, it dates back to 2016. Maybe I need to upgrade to Windows 11 to be able to use my headphone jack.
That's why the USSR collapsed. Any sufficiently big organization of human beings starts acting weirdly and stops paying attention to details.
I have a 100 kb app that will keep any window on top always. It's that simple. Why no simple app with a switch: internal speaker / headphone jack? Is there some dark magic involved? O_o
Yes, there is just no way at all to uncouple them, and to disable the goddamn inbuilt speaker. answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/…
