Sound was working fine on Windows, but yesterday after installing Kubuntu 12.10 the headphones in windows stopped working. The victim is an Asus N53SN laptop.
In Kubuntu sound works like a charm, but in windows only speakers are working, once I plug in the headphones, silence everywhere.
I've uninstalled windows drivers, I've restored the system, I've messed up with everything. I've restarted the system, with headphones plugged and unplugged.
I know this is not windows support forum, but wait: Headphones are working now, after leaving the laptop without AC and battery.
I've read that it is possible that linux is leaving the audio device in a way windows can't understand, and disconnecting the lap from AC would "solve" it temporarily. How can I solve it forever and ever?
