Could you please take a screenshot of what you see in the sound settings?
What do you see under output?

don't lnow how to take a scree shot
Dmytro Sywyi
Dmytro Sywyi Tech Expert & Writer
To take a screenshot you need to press the Windows + Print Screen (or PrtSc, PrtScn,…) keys on your keyboard at the same time. For some keyboards, you may see other signs marked along with Print Screen. In this case, you need to press the Fn key simultaneously when capturing. The captured screenshot will be saved in C:UsersADMINPicturesScreenshots as a PNG image.
To attach your screenshot to our chat, you need to press the paper clip button in the lower right corner of the chat window. Then you have to choose an image and confirm sending.
How is it going?
