    Hey so, I disconnected my desktop monitor from my tower and reconnected it to my work computer as I was working from home today. Finished work and fast forward and reconnect my monitor to my desktop and I can't hear anything from my external speakers. I'm not using the speakers on the monitor as I'm connected using a DVI cable. Can't hear any sound on Youtube or Facebook. BUT, if I go to the sound settings and then manage audio devices and test my speakers, they are definitely making distinctive test pings. I even placed my hands on both speakers and I can feel the test jingle as well as hear it. I have tried disabling and re-enabling the speakers in my sound settings. Still no luck!

    Anyone have any idea what is going on?

    Have you checked to make sure the volume settings within the applications are turned on?

    Yeahhh...I did the usual checks too. Sound on applications is on, speakers knobs are turned up and the pc speaker is on as well

    Fixed it! In my sound settings I had speakers selected, when I really needed headphones selected. I don't know why it's categorizing my speakers as headphones but at least it works now. It was literally a two click fix! WTF lol
