    Windows 10 no sound, just static

    This computer came pre-loaded with Windows 10, I have owned it for two months, with no sound problems. This morning (unknown if there was a Windows update last night) the sound does not work. There is no partial sound when attempting to play music. There is only a constant (with or without playing music) low-level static.

    I have done all the usual steps with drivers, updating, uninstalling, deleting, reinstalling. No change.

    Originally in device manager, under Sound there was listed (I forget the exact wording):

    After uninstalling and rebooting there is only:
    High Definition Audio Device (assume this is the default)

    On the Asus support website where are only Realtek audio drivers. I downloaded and installed those. So now device manager, under sound, shows:
    High Definition Audio Device
    Realtek High Definition Audio

    No matter what I do, same result, just low-level static, no sound or music of any kind.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Now it's working

    Ok, oddly enough, without any subsequent reboot, touching cables or anything, the sound started working on it's own a few hours later. So for now it's working. Thanks for reading. Now on to the many other Windows 10 problems!

    Now the problem is back

    Now the sound is not working again.
    Anyone have any suggestions?
    (Please read the original post - I have already deleted drivers and reinstalled.)
