Windows 7: Sound not playing through headphone jack

Yes, it is still working in Linux. I will have to probably reinstall Windows. Even system restore doesn't help it.

Off topic but is Windows 8/8/1.x better than Windows 7? I am using Windows 7 because Windows 8 looks like it is optimized for touch screen PC.

Thank you for looking at this post.

I didn't want to suggest a "clean" reinstall (reformat and install).

Both sides to Win 8.1. Some hate it and others do not. I have it installed as a dual boot. I also have "Start8" which makes Win 8 work and look just like Windows 7. However, if I want I can use the "Metro" which is the Tiled screens.

I have a recording studio and all my recording hardware and software (Sonar X3) runs equally on both Win 7 and Win 8/8.1 (with the Start8).

Should I just back up my Windows partition and install again? Not a clean install but as in deleting Windows partition, not reformatting, and then only installing Windows over that free space? Or should I just back up files and programs, then install Windows only and add in my files again?

In most cases a "clean" install should be done. Backup your user data first. Programs will have to be reinstalled.

I don't know how the partitioning works on a dual boot system with Linux. Windows 7, on a clean/new install to a hard drive installs two partitions, a "System Reserved" and the NTFS partition.

I will do this. Should this topic be marked as solved? The problem was not fixed but can be fixed through a clean install.

That should fix it (hopefully) but don't mark it solved until you are sure.
