Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 my headphones no longer work.

The headphones work in other devices. They work while in Linux, so the port is fine.

I have an Asus UX32VD, and Asus has stopped releasing driver updates.

I have a Realtek sound card.

Driver is, x64 R2.79 downloaded from here:


Updating the driver through Device Manager DOES update the driver, but the updated driver has the same issue.

Here is a screenshot of all my settings:



I searched online for some more recent drivers and found these:

Realtek HD Audio Driver WHQL


Win 7,8,8.1,10 x32/64 PackageVersion = PG435 DriverVer= 09/25/2015,

Try to install these and look if it may help your issue.

Well, it looks like RealTek JUST released a new driver as of this writing - 10/12/2015.

Installed it and now my headphones work.
