Windows 7: Cant hear audio through headphones - just started

Cant hear audio through headphones - only for windows partition

I have a 2.5 year old macbook pro and i have bootcamp running Windows 7 64 bit. Only just recently i have found i cant hear any audio through my headphones but i can hear audio through my computers speakers. My headphones work fine on other devices - just not on my computer for some reason - I restarted windows and that didnt help, so i tried to see what happened on my mac partition and the headphones work fine and everything works as normal, when im on mac. Just for some odd reason i cant listen to anything on windows through headphones which is a problem for video games and school etc.

Any idea what to do?

When i plug in my headphones and go into my playback devices in sound options, it recognises the headphones are plugged in and it all looks "normal" its just nothing is coming out? - It even thinks sound is coming out as the volume bar thing is moving up and down

I'm not familiar with the bootcamp, but if there is a corruption between Windows and the sound card many different things can develop. In a Windows PC and I assume with your installation, go to the Windows Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound device and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of flakey problems and may take care of yours.

Im a little confused...I click uninstall but i dont want to uninstall it?

EDIT: Not to worry. for some reason the sound is working again - no clue why.
