I’ve tried different possible solutions: restarting the software, updating my drivers, and (trying to) install a driver.
Restarting my software was just a quick check, but nothing was fixed. I may just reinstall the software, but I doubt that would change anything.
I updated my laptop and the drivers within it, but nothing changed.
Lastly, I’ve tried to import/download the driver I used to use, Realtek HD Audio Driver (instead of Realtek Audio Driver), but my laptop would download it only to delete it after the download. This is strange because I’ve researched supporting drivers for this laptop, Inspiron 7386, and that driver is supported.
At my last effort alone, I’ll try to connect speakers to my laptop and see if that fixes the sound output issue.
If that doesn’t work, I’ll just continue using my old laptop; but it’s life is close to an end, so I don’t want to consider that solution.
Please, could someone help me out?
