I am having an issue on my pc (is a new computer) when I change the "Device" Speakers volume in volume mixer - speakers.
Changing any of the other sliders for other programs is no problem, but once I change the first slider, the volume just shuts off.
I thought this was a driver issue, so I went to device manager and uninstalled the "Realtek High Definition Audio" Driver. I then restarted my pc, and the audio worked fine, until I changed the slider. The issue occurred again. I'm confused at this point, so I decide to look at the realtek driver version on my other computer, which was 18.104.22.16869.
The computer with the issue is 22.214.171.12410.
To me, this seems outdated. I update the driver, and press "search automatically", and it says that the best drivers are already installed.
I even search online for the same version my other computer has, and I download it. I click update and click "Browse my computer for driver software", and where it shows "choose directory" for the new driver, I choose downloads (that being where it is), and on the next page, it says "The best drivers for your device are already installed".
How can I get my volume back?
