Installed wireless card, lost audio.


Sep 10, 2013

I've recently installed a TP-Link (tl-wn951n) on my PC. Using windows 7. Now my audio isn't working.

The problem I'm having is speakers appear to my machine as being unplugged when they are. Testing with headphones didn't work either. It doesn't notice that I'm plugging them in anymore.

I have tried re-installing the audio drivers, and I've looked at bios settings to make sure onboard audio wasn't disabled.

Quite the pickle! I'm almost sure it's a driver issue, but I've tried Realtek and Windows default drivers.

Appreciate anyone taking the time to help me with this.
