Audio/Sound coming from speakers after headphones plugged in: Realtek HD Audio Manager issue

Recently I experienced a "no audio from headphone/earphone issue" with my new ASUS GL502 series gaming laptop. The problem was that when I plugged in my headphone i would get a notification saying I had plugged a device into the audio jack and then the Realtek HD Audio Manager window would open.  Even after the earphone is plugged in, the sound would come from the laptop speakers only. The audio from the headphone is disabled or muted until you acknowledge that you have plugged in the earphone from the "Realtek HD Audio Manager" window.  If you are also getting this same problem where you get"audio from laptop or PC speakers but no sound from earphone after its plugged into the audio jack", here is how you can fix it:

Assuming you have Windows 10 installed here are the steps to fix
  1. Tap the windows button on your keyboard and search "Realtek HD Audio Manager"
  2. Open "Realtek HD Audio Manager" and then click the gear icon on the top right 
  3. Click "Options"
  4. Now from the options window, de-select or disable this option- "enable auto popup dialog, when device has been plugged in"
Step 2: Going to "Realtek HD Audio Manager" options

Disabling auto popup dialogue when a device has been plugged in to the headphone jack

After disabling the headphone jack notification option, you can plug your headphone in and the sound will come immediately instead of a new window popping up like initially. However, you will get a small notification on the bottom of your screen that your headphone or earphone has been plugged into the audio jack. 



I fix errors or at least try to...
