    Win 10

    Build 10130 killed my sound

    Immediately after installing 10130, no sound will play on any application through speakers or headphones. Sounds worked fine on 10094. Device Manager says my VIA HD Audio (compatible) is working fine. When I go into Audio properties and try to configure speakers, it says Error, Failed to find test tone.

    Found another thread on this issue; the default format (in the Sound -> (whatever your devices is) Right-Click -> Properties -> Advanced) was set to an incompatible format (24-bit, 48kHz). Changed it back to 16-bit, 96kHz in both Speakers and Microphone. Now works.

    Ironic in that Windows 7 runs my same audio drivers in 24-bit, 48kHz. I suppose it will be better when VIA puts out drivers for Win 10 in a couple months.
