I have a G75VX laptop with Windows 8.1 and Linux installed on it. I've had this computer a couple years now, and never had any trouble, until recently in Windows I started getting no sound when I plug in the headphones. No sound at all, from the headphones or from the built-in speakers. I unplug the headphones, and then I get sound from the speakers again.

I do NOT have this problem when I boot into Linux. Only Windows. I figured something must have gotten messed up in Windows, so I wiped it out and reinstalled. Everything was OK... for a few days, and then I started getting the same problem again! I don't recall that I changed any settings before it stopped working.
