This happened for absolutely no reason, everything was fine yesterday. Then I rebooted my laptop and started having issues with the audio. Whenever I plug in my earphones, the sound just continues to come out of the speakers. I have tried every solution I found online but nothing seems to work.

The headphones do not show up in playback devices. (3.5mm) The headphones are working fine elsewhere, and were working with the laptop perfectly fine yesterday. I've tried going to the Acer website and installing the sound driver but that didn't work either. I just don't understand how and why this issue decided to come up for no particular reason.

Anyone have any other ideas? Thank you.
