Brandon M. :

Using a wireless keyboard is not recommended for this because the keyboard doesn't connect immediately like a wired keyboard would. But, you can try anyway. On a PC keyboard, the Alt key is Option and the Windows key is Command.

Brandon M. :

If you are only getting sound from your headphones and nothing when you unplug them, try those steps first. If it still doesn't help, try inserting and removing the headphones a few times. There is a trigger inside the headphone jack that might be stuck,fooling the computer into thinking that the headphones are plugged in when they are not.
