So I just got a Lenovo laptop yesterday for the very first time and I'm having some issues with it. I stick my external speakers into it, and it does not recognize they are there. The same goes for headphones. I even tried plugging them in and going into Playback Devices, but nothing pops up. What do I need to fix this? I mean, the audio is good, but not even close to being as good with actual speakers plugged in, especially when listening to music.
Oh, if it matters, it is a P500.

But I just bought the thing on Sunday. How could it be bad when it was brand new and everything? And if I'm going to do anything, I'm going to return it to Best Buy and get my $600 back and just stick with my HP desktop as this is f'ing ridiculous.

I have a presentation next month, but my laptop seems to be having problems when it comes to external speakers (or even headphones attached). Every time I go to play a video or audio file, I have to plug the headphone jack into the computer one to two times before I even open the file up otherwise, the computer will not recognize I have anything plugged in. THis is very time consuming, especially duing a presentation. Also, when it does play through the external device, the internal speakers are still playing the audio as well. How do I fix this?

On page 9 of the Users Guide it shows that the system has a Combo Audio Jack, just headphones or speakers will not be able to connect properly without using a "Y" audio splitter cable similar to the one explained in the following knowledgebase article.
