    Headphone jack doesn't output any sound and drivers dontfi

    Hi, I have a problem with my front audio jack. The cause of this problem may or may not be the DAW reaper. I set my front headphone jack on my laptop as reapers input and the speakers on the laptop as its output. This did not work so I uninstalled the program. I tried to use my headphones but there is nothing. I uninstalled all the drivers for Realtek and reinstalled them. I have also tried system restores, 4 times. They keep failing regardless of whether Avast is off or not. The speakers work, and when the headphones get plugged in (they work on my phone and other PC's in the house perfectly fine), they are recognized by Dell Audio. The problem is, the only thing in the playback tab in sound (hidden or not) is speakers and a monitor I don't want to use. Can anyone help me diagnose the problem? I really want to use my headphones again.

    Headphone model: SkullCandy Crushers
    Laptop: Dell Inspiron 15 3537

    The "headphone" jack on this model can be a Headphone jack, a Microphone jack or a combination. I couldn't find out what type of plug is needed, whether it uses an iPhone type 4 connection plug or a standard 3 connector plug. That may be one problem.

    Second, set the Stereo Mix as the default recording device. Then whatever is used will be heard by the speakers and a recording program, providing stereo mix is set as the source. You also need stereo mix if you want to record audio from the Internet.

    I have a recording studio (Sonar) but use a separate USB connected recording interface unit, not the PC's sound card.
