How to fix problems with headphones in Windows 10


We are going to see some possible solutions for the problems with the headphones that can be given in our Windows 10 computers

Sometimes getting the sound devices in Windows 10 to work properly can be a somewhat complicated task, since there can be several problems that we must detect for its subsequent solution.

Among these we can find problems in the drivers , or it is also possible that Windows misinterprets a type of sound output as if it were another, so we must delve into the sound configuration of the system to know what is happening. So here we are going to show you some possible solutions in case you connect headphones to your device with Windows 10 , and they do not work properly.

>

To start, the first step we must take, once we have made sure that we have connected in the right place, is update , reinstall or replace system sound drivers. Therefore and to carry out this particular task, the first thing we have to do is go to the " Device Manager ", something that we can type in the search bar from the Start menu to access it directly. Once here, we go to “Sound, video and game controllers” where we select the audio controller.

Next we click the button right of the mouse on that controller, and we select the option "Update driver" and then "Automatically search for the software of the updated driver ". Once this is done, right click on the driver again and select “ Deactivate device ” to activate it again.

Another possible solution to the problem is to try to roll back the controller to an earlier version from "Properties" in the context menu of the same and click "Revert to controller previous ”.

Other solutions for problems with headphones

Also, another possible solution for this problem is, in the window of "Update driver", click on "Search for driver software on your computer", and then on "Select from a list" choose "High definition audio device". Here you may see a warning message that the driver may be incompatible , but we ignore it and install it.

It is also advisable to ensure that the headphones are set to “Default device” and are activated, for which we have to right-click on the speaker icon of the lower right corner of the Windows bar and click on “Sounds”. Thus, in the new window that appears, we click on the “Playback” tab and with the right mouse button we click on an empty place to mark the two options that then appear.

On the other hand, we can also solve the problem by choosing Audio HD instead of AC97 , which are both audio standards that are generally used for the front jack port of many desktops . The fact that the PC uses one or the other will depend on the internal configuration of the motherboard of the equipment.

So, to change this section, let's go to have to take advantage of the application that is usually supplied or installeda in the system and that corresponds to the sound controller, for example, in the case of Realtek , we refer to the Realtek HD Audio Manager tool >.
