Last night my computer had received a pretty big update. Like an hour long one. Since this update my headphones have not worked properly with the computer. They work fine with other devices (my phone and a different computer).
Here is what I know. The headphones do not appear in playback devices. I tried selecting for it to show disabled devices and disconnected devices, they do not appear. The computer only shows the default speakers as the only option.
But here is the weird part. Sound is still playing through my headphones and not the speakers. The issue is that the sound is off. It doesn't sound right. Its echo-ish and just strange. So I know that there is an issue.
I've tried restoring the advanced settings to default. It didn't work.
I've tried updating all audio and software related drivers. It didn't work.
I'm not sure what the update did to my computer but it's caused my computer to no longer let headphones function properly.
Solution: Go to settings and go to Realtek HD Audio Manager. There should be a check box saying "Full Range Speakers." Deselect it.
