Just this morning I was using my computer normally. Then I started having a problem on my laptop, and I am not getting any audio on my headphones or external speakers. Yet, they are detected: when I plug them in I get that message saying "You just plugged in a device into the audio jack". Also, I have sound on the laptop's inbuilt speakers..
I have tried: 1.Installing different audio drivers from Realtek; 2.Rebooting; 3.Playing around with the Realtek's software definintions.
In the software I see no mention to the headphones, though they are detected by the taskbar icon when I plug them in.
This problem is on Windows 8 64 bit. I don't know if it is related, but this morning I also did some updates on Linux (this is a dual boot laptop). Yet, it is important to note that everything works perfectly on Linux.
Do you know how I can get it back to work? Thanks in advance
