Whenever I plug in my headphones into the jack, I no longer get a notification telling me my headphones are plugged in and Audio comes out of both the Headphones and the laptop speakers. This happend recently and didn't happen before. I have tried multiple headphones, all to the same effect. I am thinking this is a hardware issue. Does anybody have any solutions to fix?

Welcome in lenovo community
1. Go to the Control Panel by right click the bottom left corner in "Desktop" mode.
2. Search for "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
3. Set the headphone as communication device (see image below).
Also please let me know if you can hear also the sound from the headphone itself

If your system has a Conexant Audio Device Try looking for Smart Audio, Should be under Control Panel/Small Icons.
There is a feature called Multi Stream where playback is on Both Speaker and External AUdio like earphones.
Hope this helps

The problem is that the computer no longer recognizes my headphones as plugged in anymore so in the Audio Manager, it doesn't show up there.
When I first wrote the post sounds was coming out of both the speakers and the headphones, but testing it once more, no sound is coming out of the headphones anymore. I tested the headphones on another device and it works fine. Leading me to believe maybe it has something to do with the audio jack itself.
