Updated Audio Driver and Windows 10: After inserting the headphone jack, the audio drops to 37, unable to turn up the volume. Let's see the cause of the problem and how to fix it.
Realtek audio driver issue
Samsung itself published an article about the problem, explaining that it is due to an alert shown by the system after raising the volume beyond the value 37.
If you do not interact with the alert, the volume will remain stationary at that value.
Samsung, as a solution, instructs you to restart the system and, later, the alert will be reproved. Let's see how to fix it in case we don't see this warning.
