    Hi there, I've been having issues with my headphones and speakers ever since my computer did a windows update late last night. It worked fine for a while, but while skyping with my friend my computer did a sudden reset, coming back on to say it was installing the rest of the updates. Ever since then my computer suddenly says that my headphones aren't plugged in, and I can't get any sound whatsoever. I've tried disabling and re-enabling it using device manager, along with restarting it and trying the other headphone jacks. I've always used the headphone jack in the front though, so not sure why it would change now.
    Any help is greatly appreciated and if you need any information about my computer just ask, I'm new to this forum site and not sure what information is normally given/needed.

    I'd uninstall the recent update to see if that fixes the problem.

    What operating system are you using?

    I'm using windows 10, I never thought about going back, that was a good idea.
    After going back it flickers from being plugged in to not being plugged in, however the sound now works, however it only seems to work with one thing at a time (I can't hear a game's music if i'm on skype, or listen to music if talking on skype) but at least it appears to be working.
    Thanks for the help!

    If by chance any of those were video driver updates, you may have to reinstall the video card in order to get the proper sound card driver as they do affect each other.
