Headset vs speaker in monitor
« on: January 25, 2017, 09:06:40 pm »
S!
After Nvidia did a driver update, my speaker in the monitor took over from my headset which I use when gaming, etc.

With WIN 10, how can I get the headset to be active over the speaker?

Anyone?

Thanks,

Agile :-\

Try going to your control panel and then to Sound, then make your Headset or the card that is your audio device the default in the playback tab.

Left click on the sound icon in the tray on the bottom left of your monitor.  It will bring up a window with the volume at the bottom and the default sound device name at the top.  Click on the sound device name and it will show all the available devices, select the one you want.

To insure that the speakers in the monitor are not interfering with the game sounds, you can use a digital to HDMI adaptor at the sound card instead of the HDMI plug being used in the sound card. That way, no sounds will go to the monitor speakers.
