    Windows 10 'Speaker not plugged in' problem


    Hi, ever since I purchased a new computer this summer I have had the problem with using my speakers, my HDMI and headphone(Corsair Gaming H2100 Headset) sound is working flawlessly. When I bought it it had Windows 8 installed and I had the exact same problem then. I have both Realtek HD audio and NVIDIA HD audio installed, and I have tried to use both indepentently with the same result, this has been bugging me for months and I truly do not know what to do. I appreciate any help. I attached a .png with some regular specs if this would be of any help.
    Edit: the speakers worked without any problems until I got the new computer, forgot to mention

    Usually the speakers with a light green plug fits into the light green socket on the computer but have seen the black socket being used. Have you tried the speakers in the headphone jack on the front or a headset? If that works look in Control Panel, Sound, can choose the type of speaker setup and test the speakers there.

    Since it's a new computer it probably has USB 3.0 ports on it, usually blue. Try a USB 2.0 port, usually black, not everything works on USB 3.0 yet.

    The headset is not the problem though, its the speakers. Nothing wrong with the speakers themselves im pretty sure of since they worked fine until I got this new computer

    update: I tried disabling and reenabling the 2 'High Definition Audio Controller's in the device manager under the 'System Devices' tab and the speaker is now enabled, although it doesn't disable as I unplug the speakers so I feel as if they're not connected. so its still not working, any ideas?
    edit: restarted the computer and we're back on square one. as in the speaker shows as 'not plugged in' again.

    Its a RealTek driver issue. I had similar, just kept screwing with the drivers til I finally fixed it. Consider trying Iobit Driver Booster. I just found it the other day, only one I ever found that actually works and isn't malware.
