I have been using this motherboard for about 2 years, but I only recently started using headphones with 3.5mm audio jacks (previously used USB). When I plug the headphones into my motherboard's audio ports, the computer does not even pick up that they are plugged in. My audio driver says "Not plugged in" when checking sound contol panel. I have tried running the troubleshooter, uninstalling the audio driver, installing the recommended audio drivers from the Gigabyte website, reset my computer without keeping any files, but my headphones still won't work. I know my headphones aren't broken since when I plug it into my monitor I do get sound, although this reduces sound quality significantly, therefore not something I want to do. It seems more and more like a faulty motherboard, but just in case, does anyone have an alternative solution I could try?
