    Try these 2 things:

    (1) disable the sound card (not just uninstalling and reinstalling), reboot and then install new drivers
    (2) clean the connectors with a qtip (like how some smartphones are stuck in headphone mode and fix using this method --- youtube videos)

    I tried both did not work but I did find a temporary fix if I open OBS and set my audio capture device to the communication headphones then my speakers work fine but only when OBS is open

    Then it is OBS having problems not releasing the audio inputs and outputs back to the operating system when you exit OBS. Try uninstalling OBS.
