Windows 10: No sound after installing 10
No sound after installing 10
I installed windows 10 on my laptop using the media tool. All went fine except i have no sound
and I have a laptop that just upgraded via GWX and problem with sound also.
In Playback, it says under Speakers: Wi-Fi Display Virtual Audio Device Not plugged in.
I should mention, that a jack/mic headset was plugged in during upgrade (not USB connection).
I noticed in Notifications, I had two things there: "Wi-Fi Sense needs your attention" and "Finish Installing Device Driver". Clicked on both of those, checked in Device Manager and there are no more bangs, but it still has the red X on the audio icon and the troubleshooter says it's not connected. Will try another reboot (#4).
EDIT: Reboot did not fix things. I tried to update drivers for the IDT High Definition Audio CODEC but I keep getting an error: Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device. A device attached to the system is not functioning.
I'm pretty sure it's working - it was before the upgrade.
Ok cortona does not talk on my non touch ipad, whynot? Sound works, microphone works. So?
Finally got this in Device Manager:
This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver
Followed the instructions found here:
1. Select IDT High Definition Audio CODEC on Device Manager.
2. Select Driver tab.
3. Click Update Driver... button.
4. Select -> Browse my computer for driver software.
5. Select -> Let me pickup a list of device drivers on my computer.
6. Select High Definition Audio Device (Not IDT High Def... this is important.) and click Next.
Appears Warning message, but reply Yes.
7. ! Windows has successfully update your driver software.
Key is step 6
The red X on the audio icon disappeared. Rebooted the computer one more time.
Voila! Worked like a charm!
Search in Settings for Cortana. Select Cortana Search & Settings. A box will pop up above the search bar with Cortana Settings. Make sure the Let Cortana Respond to Hey Cortana selection is set to ON.
This worked "like a charm" for me on my HP Pavilion desktop. I had practically given up trying to fix the back "Line In" not working. Even though the DTS sound management software showed a jack plugged in, the Windows Control Panel's Sound function insisted there was nothing plugged in, and the DTS sound management greyed out the volume slider for Line in. I had resorted to using the front Mic input in desperation.
The DTS sound management software doesn't work now, but it was a pain anyway, it kept forgetting settings and interfering with the sound in unwanted ways.
Hi flamencoprof and welcome to Tenforums.
Thanks for posting your success with the method above; glad it worked for you!
