I got a new monitor today, before I used a VGA monitor, but finally I have a monitor that's HDMI compatible. It has a sound jack, I thought I should mention.
But really when I started up my computer, I first noticed my sound icon was X'd out, and when I click it, it takes me directly to the useless problem detector. Right clicking shows me that no playback or recording devices are installed, for some reason.
I tried mostly disabling reenabling and uninstalling then restarting all three of my sound drivers, but I think I'm entirely missing some playback or recording drivers that my laptop does have. I have no idea what happened.
If I plug my headphones in or anything (My computer appears to have to audio output green jacks, but nothing happens. When I plug my headphones in. Does EVERYONE have a audio input output, recording category in device manager that isn't sound, video, and game controllers?
I also tried MSconfig, nothing is unchecked or anything. It really just seems that I'm missing drivers...?
Is there a way I can try to see which ones I need to download? I can't figure out how to do that.
Oh and I just upgraded to windows 8.1.
I attached a picture of my device manager screen. (It didn't attach, sorry. I just explain it below)
