Hello! So for a day or two now, my headset has only been able to receive windows system sounds. I can play MP4's and hear the audio through file explorer, the windows audio testing works, the device isn't disabled, I've tried almost everything. It refuses to play any apps or games. (Spotify, Steam, Chrome, Discord, etc.) My microphone still gets picked up- but no application audio from anything outside a windows application.

I've uninstalled drivers twice.
I've changed the audio from HD to AC97 in the BIOS.
I've tested the headset on another PC and it works perfectly fine. (Logitech G935.)
It only happened after I got in bed and fell asleep with my headphones on, but later at night I woke up and plugged them in before going back to sleep.
I have no idea what is going on, I'm at the verge of just wiping the PC with a clean install of Windows 10.

Please help.

CPU: Core i5-3570K
Motherboard: Sabertooth Z77 LGA1155
GPU: GTX 980
RAM: 16GB 1333mz
Windows 10
Headset: Logitech G935
