    no audio on computer, only audio on skype


    Since June-ish i get no audio in any games, Youtube, Twitch, etc. I get audio on skype but thats it. I checked my device manager and it says all audio devices are working properly. I checked for driver updates and found none. I have a Dell XPS 8700. Thanks

    Is the "Speakers" (the PC's sound chip) set as the Default Playback Device?

    Go to the Sound Panel, Playback section. That is where you set the default Playback Device.
