Here is the solution to your problem :

Step 1: Go to Control Panel and then to Administrative Tools -> Services

Step 2: Go to "Windows Audio" service and open it

Step 3: If the Start-up type shows : "Disabled" or  "Manual", turn it to "Automatic" from the drop down menu and then click the "Start" Button

Step 4: Go to "Sound and Audio devices" in the "Control Panel" then select the Volume Tab, check the box marked "Place Volume Icon in the Task Bar" and click apply


  Hope this will help

It is likely that the devices associated with these headers don't have their drivers installed yet, that's why instead of showing up under Sound, Audio and Game Controller, they would show up elsewhere. Well first make sure your audio hardware is installed.

That is, if you're using a discrete sound card, make sure it is installed and seated properly. If you are using the integrated sound or audio controller, then you may just go to the Device Manager and look for entries under Other Devices. The entries under here are those devices without any drivers installed. Just make sure you install the right sound and audio drivers and you should be able to see the right entries.
