    Audio Driver Problems

    I woke up the other day to my audio not working on my computer. I have Realtek. Yes I tried messing with all the obvious volume controls and everything. I tried updating drivers audio, chipset, others and checking windows update. I uninstalled drivers and reinstalled them. I tried the Microsoft troubleshoot tool and it didn't work. I ran a system scan through the cmd prompt and it showed everything was fine. I rolled back the driver and I again have sound through my speakers but not my headphones. There's no option on the audio output driver to roll it back and it says "device not migrated" in the events tab. Everything on the internet keeps saying to update or reinstall but that's not working.

    Here is how to do it.

    Here the steps to completely remove a Device off your computer.

    Step 1. Use shortcut keys Win + X on Windows 10.

    Step 3. Expand the entry Sound and Audio devices. Right-click the problematic device and select Uninstall device.
