    Windows 10 not recognizing headset


    I recently formatted my PC and reinstalled Windows 10, and now the system isn't recognizing my headset. It says "no speakers or headphones are plugged in." when I mouseover the sound icon. I've tried installing Realtek Audio Manager but it didn't work. How do I solve this? Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Windows 10 not recognizing headset :p
     
  3. Headset mike not recognized - can't open Audio Manager

    You could try going into settings and running the 'Troubleshooter'. Although this might not work as I think it may be a software/driver issue.

    Ah okay. I have had a look at the manufacture Nubwo, and there doesn't seem to be any official drivers or software listed.

    Thus I would suggest we try and uninstall everything related to the headset, and then let everything install automatically, as it had done on the other desktop (assuming everything was automatically configured, and it just worked).

    1.) See if you can first remove the Realtek Audio Manager 1.0.0.222 software by uninstalling it.
    • Settings > Apps > Click on the app and select 'Uninstall.'

    2.) After that right click on Start menu (*Start) and select 'Device Manager'
    • Under the 'View' tab, select 'Show hidden devices'
    • Then click on the arrow before 'Sound, video and game controllers' as well as 'Audio inputs and outputs' (this should drop down to reveal a list of audio drivers and headsets)
    • I can help you with which driver (in relation to your headset) to uninstall, if you post back with a screenshot.

    Optional.) Or if you are comfortable with knowing which driver to uninstall, then do so
    • Right click on the driver name > Uninstall (Check 'delete software for this device'). Perform a restart and plug the headset back in.

    Windows 10 recognizes my UE Megaboom as a headset and not a speaker will not work?

    Thank you for the reply, unfortunately this did not solve the problem. I followed the steps but no luck.

    Device manager still says WonderBoom headset paired it does not recognize it as a speaker as all. Any other suggestions, please.

    Thank you. Rachael
