    win 10 64 bit

    headset connected but not working / can't test sound of audio device

    I have plantronics headset that works on a laptop OS win 10 64bit.
    But it doesn't work on my desktop PC OS won 10 64bit.
    downloaded and installed the latest drivers.
    It's a plantronics legend UC headset

    on the audio device manager there are no bars next to the headset device.
    See screenshot.

    any ideas how to fix this?

    Hi Tom Degang. Welcome to the TenForums.

    If you click on device will it allow you to configure? (Lower left) What does it have under properties, lower right.

    Could you share what type of sound card you have. With Realtek there is Realtek Audio manager with a separate set of settings.

    Hi Ken,
    My soundcard is a NVIDIA high definition audio.
