    I was using a ps4 controller for a little while and then suddenly sound stopped coming through my headphones. I checked device manager and it said that the driver has an error. I was told to uninstall the driver and then reinstall it but I don't know which driver has the error and where I would even go about reinstalling it.
    Sound still comes through my speakers, which is good, but it sucks that nothing comes out of my headphones.

    The ps4 controller has no sound capability so it's drivers should not be an issue. Most likely its the motherboards audio drivers you need to reinstall they might have become corrupted some how. Another thing would be if you have a sound card in the motherboard slots instead of on board sound then that would need reinstalling. The only other thing I can think of right now would be if you were inside the case doing a cleaning and accidentally knocked the front case sound connector loose.
