Troubleshooting Microsoft Windows 10 Sound Problem
It is almost impossible to remove all bugs from an operating system that is as big and as openly available as the Microsoft Windows 10, even with all the support by the company! One such operational bug Windows 10 encounters, more often after an upgrade is the “No sound” issue where in there is a probability of Windows going into a complete mute including system sounds and media playback. This can be a huge issue if your work is solely based on editing or sound checks. So, here we come up with a support solution for the infamous “No sound” bug in Microsoft Windows 10!
- See that little speaker icon on the bottom right of your taskbar? Right click it!
- From the pop-up select playback devices.
- From the list of playback devices given select the output, you intend to get sound on. Double click on it!
- Go to the advanced tab and change the bit rate to either of the following 24bit/44100 Hz or 24bit/192000Hz. The bit rate you decide is solely based on the speaker configuration of yours.
Please check if the devices you just troubleshooted is fine. Check if it is up and running and playing sounds, and if it is not, please reset the sound settings to its default so it works fine.
- Go to Start Menu > search for Device Manager.
- Expand Sound and audio devices.
- Right-click on the current sound driver > choose to uninstall.
- Click on Scan for hardware changes.
Updated drivers will now be automatically installed. If in case the drivers are not updated, it will be automatically updated before installation.
We’ve told this time and again, and we emphasize it again! Please have all of your drivers updated. We say this for two reasons.
