I tried changing the quality too, still there.couldn't hurt to try to change it from studio quality to cd quality (or whatever, windows is weird)
also looks like that monitor has built in speakers too, maybe enable default to vg278 and just see (since it's also now using the hdmi wire)
The monitor speakers are absurdly quiet. I can't hear them at all.
I really don't use my work speakers for much. Just the occasional webinar (if I'm just an attendee) and notification sounds like teams or email messages. I don't need "good" audio, just need to be able to hear it and hopefully get rid of that fucking static sound that I have to hear 200 times a day.
