    Headphones not detected after updated drivers


    Was on tech support with a specialist called Paul W. Spent 3 hours with him trying all sorts of solutions but nothing worked. Even tried reinstalling windows 10. I updated my drivers, only to find that the port headphones and mic symbol I use for my headphones doesn't work anymore. The pc doesn't detect it, it just uses my speakers when it's plugged in.My second port headphones symbol worked the same before, it works but there's a ringing sound that plays so I don't like using it. The specialist tried tweaking the audio quality and frequency but the ringing sound won't go away. I

  3. Headphones Not Detected

    Wasn't sure what topic to put this under.

    Windows 10 refuses to detect my headphones from my headset. The mic is fine. The computer even recognizes when I plug the headphones of the headset in. But it refuses to detect them. I can go into my Sound in Control Panel all day, and there will NEVER be any
    headphones in that list. So, no, I cannot click headphones, just making that clear before someone suggests clicking on headphones.

    How do I force Windows 10 to detect the headphones that I have plugged in, so that they will work? The jack is working fine. When I plug them in it gives me the pop-up letting me know that I plugged something into the jack. But that's the end of it. It will
    not detect the headphones. Nothing comes out of them. There are no headphones in the Sound list. There is nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. Zilch. Why does it register something is plugged in and then refuse to detect it?

    Someone please figure out why Windows 10 simply cannot detect headphones and help me fix this so I can use my headset.

    Headphones not working and Realtek HD Audio Manager

    Hello,

    Thank you for updating us on the above issue.

    Please reply:

    • Did you check if your headphones work on other device?
    • Did you check if your headphone drivers are detected under Device manager?

    I suggest you to check if similar issue persists on connecting the same headphones to another computer. If the issue does not persists, I suggest you to check if the headphone drivers are detected under Device manager by following the steps below:

    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard select
      Device Manager from the options.
    • Expand Audio inputs and outputs option and check if the headphone drivers are visible in the window.
    • Right-click on the headphone driver and select Update this software
      option.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions and wait for the update to complete.
    • Close the window after the update is complete and check if the changes are effective.

    If the headphone drivers are not visible, I suggest you to download and install the latest and most compatible driver software from the device manufacturer’s website and check if the issue is resolved.

    Write to us with the status of the above issue for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.

    Thank you.
