  1. My USB headphones are not being detected


    So I just bought this brand new pair of logitech headphones and when I plug the USB into my computer nothing happens. I can plug my USB mouse into the same port and it works just fine but when I plug my headphones into it nothing happens. It doesn't even show up on device manager. Please help

    :)

  2. 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.

    Here are steps to help fix the issue:

    • Plug your headphones in.
    • At the bottom right side of your desktop taskbar, right click the volume icon and select
      Playback devices.
    • Check the default device and if it detects the headphones you plugged in.
    • If it does not detect your headphones, you will need to update your BIOS.

    Keep us posted.

    Headphone jack not detecting headphones, USB headphones work.

    You said the headphone jack is good. How were you able to confirm this, with another device that is detected properly in Settings > System > Sound settings? Did you try the Troubleshooter there for Output devices?

    There are more recent troubleshooting steps for this problems I found here:
