Article Title: No Laptop Speaker Mute with Headphone Jack Occupied
Item Resource Page: ASUS-Z96JS

My solution to the Realtek - Headphone Audio not cutting out the Laptop Speakers (apparently a common problem with ASUS laptops)
- Tried changing to older drivers, unplug, replug, etc, no effect
- Editted some registry keys...no luck

- Disconnected all cables, turned off the power and took out the battery, waited about 5 minutes - (I also used a microfiber cloth to clean the outside, and I applied some pressure by rotating a headphone plug in the jack with the cloth in between it and the jack walls - it wouldn't go in far, but I'm mentioning it here incase that helped)

- Reconnected power, booted the system, then after listening to ensure the external speakers were working with the jack empty, I inserted my headphones - result: no sound from the speakers (ie. success )

I won't say that'll solve it permanently but it did for me and I thought I'd post it incase it helps you too. I had been planning to take it back and ask for a new Audio DJ/Motherboard, or take it apart to solder a new socket, etc... but it now works so I'm happy -This fix was really essential to me, I'm not the type to broadcast my music or audio 99% of the time, either in the lab, lectures, or even at home. I even considered getting a new laptop over this ... but my Z96JS definitely has at least another year or two on it if this keeps solved

Update: It's been 6 months and this fix is still holding
