I've tried shutting down, unplugging, and both along with actually turning my PSU off.

How do I fix this? It won't detect under the sound devices, although it shows up as "Unspecified" under "Devices And Printers".

They were installed ages ago, but as soon as I switch the port, BOOP! Nothing.

Now, do I want to check that? I'm on Windows 7. I ask because I hit, "Uninstall" but then it gives me that. Does that mean it will uninstall the drivers from my device as well as my computer? Or just my computer?

Your device doesnt have drivers, it has firmware. Yes, uninstall the driver software. then reinstall it.

Yes, check the box. When you plugged it back in, did it say it was installing drivers?

It did. But my headset is not showing up, neither the mic or the headphones.
