  1. Audio drivers not recognized

    When I plug my headset into my PC, it is recognized as, what it is, a Plantronics 3225. However, between a few minutes and a few hours later, it will change to a CONEXANT USB AUDIO driver, and the sound quality, especially on the microphone, will become really lousy. Is there a way to uninstall or block the conexant driver? Updates, driver changes, even rolling back the last windows update, none of it worked.

    This is doubly embarrassing because I work on our helpdesk. Please help!

  3. Headset mike not recognized - can't open Audio Manager

    You could try going into settings and running the 'Troubleshooter'. Although this might not work as I think it may be a software/driver issue.

    Ah okay. I have had a look at the manufacture Nubwo, and there doesn't seem to be any official drivers or software listed.

    Thus I would suggest we try and uninstall everything related to the headset, and then let everything install automatically, as it had done on the other desktop (assuming everything was automatically configured, and it just worked).

    1.) See if you can first remove the Realtek Audio Manager software by uninstalling it.
    • Settings > Apps > Click on the app and select 'Uninstall.'

    2.) After that right click on Start menu (*Start) and select 'Device Manager'
    • Under the 'View' tab, select 'Show hidden devices'
    • Then click on the arrow before 'Sound, video and game controllers' as well as 'Audio inputs and outputs' (this should drop down to reveal a list of audio drivers and headsets)
    • I can help you with which driver (in relation to your headset) to uninstall, if you post back with a screenshot.

    Optional.) Or if you are comfortable with knowing which driver to uninstall, then do so
    • Right click on the driver name > Uninstall (Check 'delete software for this device'). Perform a restart and plug the headset back in.
