okay so a couple of things stopped working on my computer, and i got a program called tweakbit. it updated all my drivers and for some reason added a driver for my non usb headphones. i ended up fixing the problem myself, but now the headphones wont play sound coming from the computer. how can i uninstall the headphone drivers so i can just plug them in and have the sound from the pc stop and go to headphones like its always been.

Hello there, 


In order to uninstall unwanted drivers from your PC follow the steps below: 

  1. Go to "Control Panel", click "Hardware and Sound", and then click "Device Manager".
  2. Expand the node that represents the type of driver that you want to uninstall, right-click the driver entry, and click "Uninstall".
  3. On the "Confirm Device Removal" dialog box, click "OK" to start the uninstall process. 

Please note: you can also install the recommended updates and drivers for your system directly from Windows. 



Hope this helps!
