    Plug some headphones in and then remove them. The jacks have been known to stick.

    Had that happen to me once, either reinstall off the Leopard DVD (if you have the late-2008 MacBook) or download the latest Boot Camp (2.1) drivers from the Apple downloads page.

    That. Don't waste time with software, it's an hardware error with your headphone jack.

    If you want to install the drivers for Windows it has to be done in Windows.

    What I suggest is that you uninstall your audio drivers, and install it seperately using the .exe found in the CD.

    Btw this should be in Windows on Mac

    Sure thing go to control panel>programs or w/e.

    Then click on uninstall program.

    Then choose realtek audio drivers

    Uninstall.

    Reboot computer.

    Insert macintosh driver CD into cd tray

    When that box comes up if you want to install, press cancel/no.

    Go to My Computer > that cd drive (right click, explore)

    Go into the folders and it'll have the audio drivers in there in a folder.
