Bottom right shows nothing is connected (little red x) and no sound plays when plugging in but headphones work fine on any other device. In play back devices all i see is 4 of the same

NVIDIA Output

NVIDIA High Definition Audio

Not plugged in

and nothing to do with with headphones at all. Also in Device Manager under Sound, video and game controllers, there is only NVIDIA High Definition Audio and NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (Wave Extensible) (WDM). Any advice would be much appreciated, Thank You.

It is just possible that the socket is a Combined Mic/Phone socket, which needs a different type of plug
