  2. Windows 10 will not switch from speakers to earphones

    I know there have been numerous similar problems/solutions regarding this Windows 10 issue but my problem persists, perhaps in part because I can't always find the right files etc on my computer.

    I used to run Windows 7 but upgraded to Windows 10. Major major mistake!! My computer is now mostly a large paper weight and generally functions like one. I could potentially write a long list of Windows 10 screw-ups, but I digress from my current issue.

    On Windows 7 I could have my speakers on but when I plugged in my earphones the sound automatically switched the speakers to the earphones. With Windows 10 I have to manually change the default setting from speakers to earphones and back again when I'm
    done using the earphones. The speakers work when they are set as default but the earphones do not work and vice versa when the earphones are set as default. It seems like it should be a very simple fix, but nothing I've tried has worked. Any suggestions
    would be welcome.

    Windows 10: No Sound coming out of earphones (only speakers work)

    It's a laptop (dual booting Win10[recently upgraded from win7 64bit] and Elementary OS Freya)

    It's nothing to do with hardware issues

    Earphones worked fine on my Elementary OS so my audio jack is definitely not broken or anything like that. Earphones work on my phone as well so i'm quite positive it's to do with windows 10 only.

    No sound coming out of earphones

    There's no sound coming out of the earphones, and I'm sure it's nothing to do with them because they work fine when I plug them into my phone. Also, I've tried another pair of earphones which resulted the same. However, the sound works perfectly without the earphones plugged into my laptop, the speakers are fine.

    unsure if it's to do with drivers

    I've tried uninstalling the Realtek HD audio drivers, reinstalling and nothing works.

    However, I have Windows 10 but could only find drivers for Windows 7/8

    settings

    I've googled a bit and most would suggest something like checking the playback devices but the only one on my list is 'Speakers'.

    Realtek detected my earphones

    When I plug in my earphones, Realtek detected them and even popped up the notification saying 'you just plugged a device into the audio jack'

    as shown in the picture, when i toggle my mouse onto the black circle, it clearly detected something was plugged in, but somehow audio just won't play through my earphones.
