I've been having this problem and its driving me nuts.

Device Details
Windows 10
ASUS FX53VD

Symptoms
My earphones and speakers will either :
(a) play audio at the same time
(b) play audio only through the speaker
(c) play audio only through the earphones

I find that if I turn on / restart with my earphones in, it will do (c) play audio only through the earphones. Otherwise, it will do either (a) or (b).

I also noticed, looking at the Realtek HD Audio Manager, that after starting my computer with the earphones making scenario (c) occur, my audio plays through my headphones when I select speaker or headphones as the device plugged in. However, when I select mic as my plugged in device, the audio plays out of my speakers!

Input audio does not work from headphone mic anymore, system only.

Attempted solutions
I have updated as well as installed and reinstalled my audio drivers using Driver Booster V5.2 and even manually.
I attempted system restores.
I wiggled toothpicks and q-tips in my headphone jack.
I also considered the possibility that my headphone and speakers are not "split" and noted solutions online suggesting to do so in the Realtek manager; however, I don't think that option is available in my version.

Hi, thanks for answering. So in my playback devices I only have speakers (Realtek) but then headphones from FABRIQ which I believe are for some Bluetooth headphones I've attempted to use on here once (it says its a type Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator in properties). I cannot toggle the default device down-bar for either. Currently speakers is the default.

Thanks for the reply. This is probably me just being dumb but... where do I download this? Would you be able to provide a link? My google searching isn't going very well.
