Did my broke break my headset?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have no idea what is going on I have a Steelseries 9H and it works perfectly with no issues when I'm on the PC and nobody has been on it before me. Anyways my lil bro who is 5 gets on my PC to play games on a different account when i'm out of the house and recently everytime that i get on after him i get no sound. Now usually a simple restart fixes the issue but now that doesn't seem to work even after 3 restarts and an hour of waiting for it to maybe fix itself.. (i checked everything is plugged in as hard as it can and i have the latest engine) Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 


#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.


Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Beat the shit out of your brother. 


Just kidding, any technical hardware damage around the earphones themselves? Have you tried checking for damage/cracks/etc.? If you find nothing, then I suspect it may be a bad cable, which seems to be a common problem with the headphone users I've experienced.

Headphones are not affect by restarting a computer, rather it'll most likely be an issue with your sound card or on-board audio. Have you tried plugging the headphones into the headphone jack on your phone to see if they are in working condition?
