Hi, I have a prebuilt PC here and recently for some reason. My computer has decided to put both my front and rear headphone jacks together. I can't use them at the same time but I also cant separate them. I have tried to uninstall realtek, but then when i restart my computer it downloads relatek by itself again. I have tried so many things. I can't remember what I have done. Any help would be great
by default windows does not allow you to use multiple audio outputs at once.
virtual audio cable and the like can allow multiple outputs if set up right.
I'm not tryign to use them at the same time, I just want to switch between the outputs and it's not letting me because it is all under one name.
So like if i open the properties of my speakers. It will show rear and front panel jacks there and i wanna split that up.
I had the same problem, both front and rear showing up under one name. The way i fixed this was to go to the driver and revert it back to a previous version. I did this by opening the Device Manager and under Sound, video and game controllers i found the Realtek HD Audio driver, opened it and selected revert. This uninstalled the driver and i now have a NVIDIA virtual audio device instead. I now have Speakers and Headphones separated. I have a z170-p motherboard if thats of any help to someone.
