I don't remember if I ever did solve it, if I did it must have been something to do with the drivers. I might have ended up just reinstalling windows though because I remember this was a big issue I was having at the time. I have since moved on to a different laptop and never had this issue again.

Just wanted to post this for posterity. This is the top hit on google.

Windows would detect my headphones/external speakers, and they were set to default device, but no sound would come out.

Fixed the issue with these steps-
Turn off computer.
Hold down power button for 10 seconds, release and let pc boot up again.

It must have reset something in the bios, I dunno. But the audio in the headphones came back after booting up.

I previously uninstalled/reinstalled driver, rolled back, set default..... none of that worked.
Holding down power button before booting did the trick.

I unplugged my dell laptop, took the battery out waited 30 seconds, put the battery back in. Once I booted back up the headphone volume was fixed.

For me, the problem appears when my notebook enters sleep mode with the headphones plugged in.
Workaround: remove the headphones, enter sleep mode and wake up.
After this, the headphones work again.
My notebook is Lenovo L430 with Realtek ALC3232 audio.
Others say that bios update could solve the problem.
