Speakers not working when plugged into front jack. Help !!


Dec 17, 2013
I was updating my audio driver, after it got updated I restarted my PC and found out that the speaker stopped working. Before updating my driver, i could use both front and rear audio jack as Speaker/ Headphone but when I went to the sound settings, I found out this.

The front jack was now connected as communication device. Before that I didn't even have the communication device on my playback devices.
And also, I cant use the rear jack as it's partially broken.
It worked fine in Windows 8.1, It was also working fine in windows 10 until i updated by audio drivers.
How do i make the front jack act as Speaker/ Headphone like before ? Any help would be much appreciated.
