So I recently reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition, and though my computer plays sound through the speakers, when I plug any earbuds or headphones into the headphone jack I can't hear anything.
I can see that audio is playing in the volume bar, but nothing is playing through the headphones. I've updated the drivers with ones from here and nothing changes. I have also tried the drivers direct from Realtek, they didn't work either.
Nothing is wrong with my headphones or the headphone jack themselves because I can boot into my Lubuntu partition and everything works perfectly fine.
I've seen this thread, and I tried following what they did, but it still didn't work.
Also, when I bring up the Sound window, it doesn't show anything other than the speakers even though I have it show disabled and disconnected devices.
Here are my relevant specs:
- Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit edition
- Asus X54L BBK2 Laptop (which uses an Asus K54L motherboard)
I've got no idea what to do now. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it a lot. Thanks!
