Question How do you fix this sound driver issues?

Apr 28, 2020
Ive had my PC for about a year, first few months were smooth until i updated windows 10 to the newest version. My friends started complaining that I was incredibly quiet even after turning me up to max, and I went into control panel and maxed out the mic. I tried the headset on my laptop and it works crystal clear, so my guess was that it was driver issues, I also turned of every other mic and sound things that might interfere. I did everything; re-rolling to an older version, installed newest version, and installing completely new drivers (however I dont know how well this went as the process was quite confusing). I went into the Realtek HD Audio Manager and did every conceivable method (I tested this by using the "listen to this device" option), I would be very grateful for someone to find a fix for this. Thanks.
