  1. Help! Audio only works on one application


    I booted up my laptop today and have encountered an extremely annoying issue. I can only get audio on Waveform, a music production app. Nothing else produces any sound, not even the audio troubleshooter. Same situation with and without headphones. I've checked my volume mixer, reinstalled my Realtek audio driver, made sure my default output is my speakers (or headphones when necessary), and searched Google. I cannot find a solution. So strange that only Waveform will produce audio.
