    Headphones not showing in Playback Devices


    So I've just finished installing the creators update and only Speakers are showing in Playback Devices. I've tried updating my sound drivers as well as selecting 'Show Disabled/Disconnected Devices'. I've also run the troubleshooter. Headphones do not appear as an option in the Levels tab also. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

    Solved: Uninstalled the sound device from the device manager (not the driver), then restarted.
