Windows 10: Jacks not detecting headset

    Jacks not detecting headset


    I recentley did a complete reinstall of Windows 10 onto my computer, deleting everything else on the drives along with it. However now when I plug my headset into either the front or rear jacks Windows is not detecting anything. I have installed the newest Realtek HD Audio drivers but am I missing anything else? Or is it a more serious problem? Ty in advance.

    Open Settings and type Audio in "find a setting" box at top....this will give a selection of options to cure your problem.

    It gives the response that the device is not plugged in. However I am sure it is. Why would by computer not be detecting the jacks?

    EDIT: there is a constant low buzzing noise when the headset is plugged into my front jack

    Do note that there is a newly released driver January 22.....see info at top of this Drivers and Hardware Forum.

    Its a RealTek driver issue, almost guarantee it. I had same but also no speakers. Had the buzz too.
