Audio Jacks not working anymore


Thread Starter
Oct 14, 2019
Hey there, I recently changed from an intel CPU to an AMD and had to change my motherboard. After doing this my GPU decided to break so replaced that and now none of the mic or headphone jacks work on the front or back. When I plug a mic in theres no notification or input received by the PC and when I plug my headphones in theres just a constant quiet screeching and no audio ouput from my headphones. I've been googling and searching and banging my head against a wall for about a week now so hope you guys can help me with this. I'm a complete tech noob here as well.

Thanks in advance,

Changing a motherboard like that can really mess up the drivers, I would try a clean install of Windows 10 to sort this out.

You can use the Media Creation Tool (see link below) to make a Usb stick or DVD to install with. A clean install means deleting all the partitions on the drive at the start of the install, so you should backup any data you want to keep beforehand.

Also it's best to only have one HDD/SSD connected to install onto, this avoids any chance of the OS files being on more than one drive, which can cause problems.
