    Hi Octopolus.

    If you right click on speaker in systray (notification area), then Volume Mixer, what level has been set for system sounds.

    Close. Right click on speaker and then click "Open Volume Mixer". Looks like you click on "Sounds"

    Well that isn't muted.

    Can you see what the full message is under Chrome? (Some sound effects are...0

    Okay lets go back to the Sound window you originally opened. If you click on playback, then on your speakers, then configure. If you click on test do you hear sound?

    Have you tried updating this VIA HD Audio driver?

    well the message about google chrome isnt there anymore. when i start chrome i dont get that error message, at least not now.
    yes i hear sound when i click: sound-playback-speakers-configure and test.

    no i havent tried updating the driver. i thought about uninstall the driver and restart the computer since win10 installs drivers automatically that way, but i wanted to see what you guys thought first

    That is an approach and one that is used in some Windows 10 trouble shooters. If the computer gives you the error message you started thread with I would then search for new / updated driver.

    Please post back results.

    That is okay. I would try one, say one level back. On my old Dell I have a wireless driver from Feb 2014. If I update it at all it stops working.

    If this works then you tell Windows to lay off the driver updates.
