I updated my windows 7 pro thinkpad t420 to windows 10 pro.

Normally when you connect your headphones, it should switch to it for playback, but what i have to do is switch it as default device.

Vice-Versa as well, once I have my headphones connected and its set as the default device then I unplug it and the normal reaction should be the playback should switch to the speakers. <- which doesn't happen.

Help is appreciated, Thank You!
 
Hi,

Please do try to uninstall/reinstall the sound card driver and see if that will do the trick.
- Go to Device Manager and uninstall the Sound Card driver.
- Once uninstalled, download and install the latest driver.
- Here's the link: https://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/8aax04ww.exe
- Reboot the laptop once the latest driver has been installed.
- After the reboot do test it again and see if the same problem will persist or not.
