    Hello,
    I plugged my Creative Soundblaster X-Fi (something like that) and then I plugged the headphones and it seemed fine even though it took some time to find the drivers. After that I went and plugged in my microphone which caused my pc to freeze and making me restart , but after the restart the microphone worked aswell, so not so bad after all ... Well now I tried using my extension cable for my headphones because their cable is like 1m long and the card is not at the front so I have to use it ... and well it doesn't find anything and it acts as if the jack is empty... HELP

    Edit: I should also mention that the ext. cable is 3m long if that makes any difference

    Buy or borrow another extension cable and try with it.

    Btw have you actually plugged headphones into extension cable?

    Because if it has a cut somewhere it can`t be recognised by the port.
