How do I turn off the sound on a public library computer, without disabling patrons being able to still have sound when they use ear phones?
Hi there. It should simply be a case of removing the speakers? If they're integrated into the monitor, look for a green jack plug on the back of the computer and unplug it.
Disconnect the loudspeakers. But what do mean? Access to one PC or multiple PCs?
Sorry, I didn't explain very well. There are no external speakers. Being a library, I don't need people playing music on the computer where everyone else can hear it. We have ear phones they plug in. This one computer now has external sound.
Where is the external sound coming from if not via the green sound port on the back? Also, what operating system is it on.
Not sure but some HPs at work have built in speakers in the tower. Do not work very well but they are audible.
Make and model of your computer may help.
