Audio playing from both speakers and headphones

Pavilion TS Sleekbook 15, D4M40EA#ABV
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I had an issue with my audio for the past 5 days where when I connected my headphones, it wouldn't detect at all(plays through speakers but no headphone audio, not even static), in the audio drivers in Driver Manager it said High Definition Audio Device (no other audio name). So i browsed hp drivers and  I had to solve it by installing the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC, the audio driver that was intended for this device.


Now it detects my headphones but it plays in both my speakers and headphones simultaneously, I tried updating by selecting browse and choosing 'High Definition Audio Device" but then the first problem appears (as stated above). in my sound options in the playback section it has 2 devices: Speakers/HP and Communication Headphones ; the communication headphones doesnt work even when set to default only the Speakers/HP works when tested.  in the recording devices they have 3 devices: Headset Mic (doesnt work when tested), Internal Mic. Array (works) and Stereo Mix (it says its unavailable.).


WHen i update into High Definition AUdio Device only 2 devices remain (Speakers in playback devices and Microphone in recording devices[this is the inbuilt laptop mic]. Please help me on this matter. I tried searching for an IDT Control Panel but Icant find it. Please help me.
