USB audio devices suddenly stopped working?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

While I was playing a game a few days ago, all of my USB audio devices suddenly stopped working. My headphones running through my Schiit Vali 2 started clipping suddenly, and my Focusrite Scarlett Solo powered off. Neither of the devices appear in my sound settings anymore. I have reinstalled drivers, reset my computer and installed drivers, plugged everything into different ports, and nothing is working. I plugged everything into another computer and it all works fine. Any thoughts on what the problem might be?

I'm running Windows 10.

if you go to 'settings' then 'update & security' you can click on 'OS build info' and see the version and build, 

i am currently running version 1903 from May last year, i find my internal DAC works fine with this build 

its just a though to update windows if you can to see if it helps

Just went in and updated to version 1909, devices still aren't working. I honestly don't know very much about computers, but because both stopped working at once, I've updated and reinstalled drivers, they work in other computers, and both are USB audio devices I'm thinking its probably a hardware problem, I'm just trying to figure out what it could possibly be. I could be ( and probably am ) wrong though, haha.
