RIP School Survival Forums
August 2001 - June 2017

The School Survival Forums are permanently retired. If you need help with quitting school, unsupportive parents or anything else, there is a list of resources on the Help Page.

If you want to write about your experiences in school, you can write on our blog.

To everyone who joined these forums at some point, and got discouraged by the negativity and left after a while (or even got literally scared off): I'm sorry.

I wasn't good enough at encouraging people to be kinder, and removing people who refuse to be kind. Encouraging people is hard, and removing people creates conflict, and I hate conflict... so that's why I wasn't better at it.

I was a very, very sensitive teen. The atmosphere of this forum as it is now, if it had existed in 1996, would probably have upset me far more than it would have helped.

I can handle quite a lot of negativity and even abuse now, but that isn't the point. I want to help people. I want to help the people who need it the most, and I want to help people like the 1996 version of me.

I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but as it is now, these forums are doing more harm than good, and I can't keep running them.

Thank you to the few people who have tried to understand my point of view so far. I really, really appreciate you guys. You are beautiful people.

Everyone else: If after everything I've said so far, you still don't understand my motivations, I think it's unlikely that you will. We're just too different. Maybe someday in the future it might make sense, but until then, there's no point in arguing about it. I don't have the time or the energy for arguing anymore. I will focus my time and energy on people who support me, and those who need help.

Minor audio problem

Plugging in a pair of headphones immediately disables any sound whatsoever from being transmitted through the headphones, and even after unplugging them sound will not come out through the speakers. Adjusting sound devices and crap in Control Panel has no effect. Only way to restore sound is to restart the computer completely.

Re: Minor audio problem

Wow rebelnerd thats pretty low.

desert I think the pc is 'fooled' to think that the headphone is always plugged in hence there's no sound.

Don't really know how to fix this as this might not be hardware related.

Re: Minor audio problem

lol.


Anyway, something sorta similar to this happened to me once. I played through Black Ops with speakers and it was fine, then when I plugged in headphones the sound stopped working. Putting speakers back in didn't work either. The thing is that it was only Black Ops, not youtube or other games or anything like that. After searching through some support forums, I tried reinstalling DirectX and playing around with the in-game sound settings, and now it works fine.
So, try browsing through actual some tech support forums if you haven't already. They'll give you real advice without a jab at STALKER thrown in for the lulz.

Re: Minor audio problem

I see. I'll check out some tech forums, then. Though it really has to be more than a technical issue for your sound to screw up when playing CoD, probably your computer saying "GET THIS PROGRAM OFF OF ME, OH GOD IT BURNS".

Re: Minor audio problem

Are you plugging the headphones into the speakers or directly into the computer/sound card?

Re: Minor audio problem

She meant, onto your computer headphone ports, in the front/back of the computer itself or onto your speakers if they come with headphone ports, separate from the computer ITSELF, a port that wouldn't work if you plugged the speakers off the computer?

I had the same issue with Slax (small Linux OS for flash drives and stuff), it's probably driver related, did you change any drivers or anything before the problem appeared?

Computer headphone ports. As in, the actual computer.

Re: Minor audio problem

Weird. I dunno lol, if it isn't a hardware problem, try installing newer drivers? Or use a speaker headphone port if you have one...

Re: Minor audio problem

this absolutely sounds like a problem with your drivers. Update the lot.

Will do once I bug out of my dad's place and get back to where the computer I'm talking about is (tomorrow evening).

Re: Minor audio problem

Yeah, does sound like driver issues. Be sure to completely uninstall your current drivers, then run CrapCleaner, then install newer ones. Or the same ones if you don't have newer ones.
