What happens if you click on your af52, nothing? also your sound window is showing disabled devices for sure? Whats in the recording tab?

When I click on the AF52 icon, it just brings up the settings, but none of the options give me the choice to enable it. If you right click on the speaker icon to get properties, there is an option that says "device usage" then you click on enable to disable. That's not showing up in my AF52 properties, it WAS there when I disabled it, but that option completely disappeared so now I can't enable it, that's the entire problem.

WHOA!! It's showing up now!! I didn't even do anything, all I did was clicked again on Sound, the exact screenshot I just showed you, and this time my headset is showing up!! I dont know why after 2 days it suddenly decided to show up again! Whew...so ok, I just enabled it, and now it's working again. I have NO idea why it wasn't showing up until now, I didn't change a thing, i've just been going over and over the same thing and suddenly it is showing up now.

Well I guess I can close this thread, although if anyone ever reads this with the same problem, they won't know what to do, lol

Thanks for all your help Rvcjew!! I'm sorry the "fix" was nothing we could figure out, apparently my computer just felt like being a jerk, lol'

although I still have no idea why the volume control wasn't working in the first place, that's the entire reason I messed with it. But it's all working normal now, I hope it stays that way.

Technology keeps you on your toes that way lol glad you got it fixed but yeah I was meaning this menu btw as it would have shown it grayed out. For reference:

Oh yeah I did right click on the empty space and then clicked on "show disabled devices" but it still didn't show up when I clicked that. I really wish I knew what made it suddenly show up though, I didn't change anything, all I was doing was going back to the same things I've already clicked on about 20 times, lol
