What To Do If Windows 10 Not Recognizing Headphones

To fix the problem with headphones try the following ways:

Press and hold Start button and when the list appears, click on “Device Manager”. Then find the section “Sound, video and game controllers” and in the menu, find and open your Audio Manager (Via HD Audio, for example) and with the right mouse button click on it and run “Update Driver Software”.

In the next window click on “Search automatically for updated driver software” and wait to see if the new driver is available, if not, consider the other solutions.

 

Second way: Change default sound format

With a right mouse button, click on the volume icon and in the menu that opens, click on “Playback Devices”. There you will see only “Speakers” as your default playback device selected. Double-click on it and the new window will open. In “Advanced” tab, you will see under “Default Format” the sample rate and that you should change to the highest value. Click on “Apply” and “Ok” and then check the sound with a click on “Test”.

As opposite to the first way, maybe the newest driver is the problem. Then you should try to roll back the driver.

With the right mouse button, click on “Volume” button and select “Playback devices”. Click on “Headphones” button and open “Properties” under the “Controller Information”, click on the tab “Driver” choose “Roll Back Driver”.

After you have passed all these ways, the problem will hopefully be fixed.
