    Sound doesn't work after installing Build 10240 Windows 10 please help

    My sound won't work after I installed windows 10. I'm using Conexant SmartAudio HD by the way. I tried using youtube for a solution but everything was for older builds. Please can anyone help me?

    Hi, did you upgrade or clean install?
    What driver is installed? Device Manager, Sound, rt click on Conexant..., properties, details

    Is your PC a laptop or a desktop?

    I have a 5 yr old HP laptop with Conexant HD SmartAudio 221, driver dated 2008. That's the latest available, it seems.

    This works with everything I've tried EXCEPT Audacity later than v2.03 (others report similar) and any ASHAMPOO programs that require a sound card.
    I upgraded from Win 8.1.

    There are many posts around about no sound after installing Win 10, so worth looking around. Good luck.
