  1. How can I get my headphones to work on my laptop again?


    My headphones won't register with my input port on my laptop, and when I try to fix the issue in the Realtek audio console and go to device advanced settings, it just shows a greyed-out Analog: headphone thing with none of the settings other people have. I have tried restarting and updating drivers and all that jazz, and I am still 100% stuck. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)
