Sound "Unplugged" Error


Well-Known Member
My computer was not playing sound from Google Chrome, so I opened the sound manager and clicked the "Configure" button after selecting "Speakers". Half way through the configuration the GUI changed and only displayed a message saying the speakers were unplugged. Ever since then the audio manager is unable to detect my speakers, and only displays the message "No speakers or headphones are plugged in". I tried updating my sound driver in the device manager. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver software. Nothing works. The Realtek HD Audio Manager is able to detect the speakers, but the windows audio manager cannot.

Any suggestions? Is there perhaps a file that the configuration created which I can delete?
