I have an XPS 15 9560 16gb ram, I7 7700HQ and for some reason the audio output to earbuds aren't working. More accurately, the recognition of audio devices isn't working. If I start my computer without earbuds in, they don't work when I plug them in (audio plays through the speakers) but if I start the computer with earbuds in, it recognizes those as the only output and unplugging them causes the speakers not to work. In addition, there is no option to select earbuds/headphones as a device.
I've tried several solutions that I've found online, such as:
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Open the realtek properties, click the folder on the top right hand side next to "Analog" and check the box that says "Enable Popup.
Also,right click the speaker icon on the right taskbar and choose playback devices. From here you can select if you want the headphones to be default or speakers.
Forgive me, but I can't seem to find the Analog button. The only thing I see in the top right of the Realtek properties is the x. I looked through all the tabs and couldn't find what you spoke about. Am I looking in the wrong place?
