Yeah why not. When ya get a chance try the tv. All ya gota do is set the tv in audio playback devices in windows to default and should get sound through the tv speakers. When setting tv audio to default audio only sound will be played through the graphics card. Set Realtek speakers to default when ya want to use the headphones again.

Have you look at the volume green bars yet?

The bottom right corner in system try there should be a speaker icon of sorts belonging to windows. Click that and there should be an option to adjust volume for certain things like your speakers and browser. If you can hear sounds in a game the green volume bars should be moving up and down.

Looks like this depending whats open that plays sound might have a few more or less options. The Speakers column when playing audio there should be fluctuating green thing (don't know what that's called, like a mixer graph going up and down) under the blue rectangular arrow.

Wont see the bar in-game, need to play in bordered window so you can see the volume graph. Is that what you're doing?

If play the game in fullscreen and alt tab the sound would stop.
put it on windowed mode , i didnt see any green bar coming in . Also in one game the sound is 0 , i set it to 10 and apply , then exit the menu and go back to settings and it goes on 0 again

Just checking which coloured jack in case for an odd reason one of those is giving audio as well but not recognised in games. Yeah green is good, that's the primary fronts / headphone front left and right speaker output.

What's the red jack for?
