    Windows 10: No Sound.


    Hey!

    So recently, I found I'll be working at this computer for about a month before I go back to my old computer at home. No need for long stories, basically, the computer is a Mac. I'm more comfortable working in a Windows environment so I bootcamped the computer and installed Windows while also leaving Mac OS on it. Basically, dual-booting the computer so I can work on Windows.

    My issue is that now, I don't have any sound. Not headphones nor the normal built-in speakers in the mac. Does anyone know any ways to fix this?

    Things I already did:
    - I did check the drivers, and they're fine
    - I did go to services, and restarted "Windows Audio" and all of that.
    - I did test out the headphones on a different device and they work fine, so it's not an issue with speakers nor the headphones.


    Here you can see the bar is going up indicating that there is sound suppose to be playing:

    The "High Definition Audio Device" is the generic basic function Windows installed sound driver. First step would be to install the correct sound driver (if one is available). If it has Realtek sound install the Realtek drivers, Conexant their drivers, etc.

    Like you I have had sound card issues, i can't remember which build it started in. I have the RealTek drivers, the same as all the other builds but, with build 10162 my volume is only like 25%. I decided not bother with it, because they are still changing things, by the end of the month it might be entirely different. Sorry, I know that is not a good answer, but just wanted to let you know you weren't alone.

    How would I know which ones to look for? Hardware wise I don't know much since it's all packaged in a Mac, as I explained a bit above.

    I have been having audio headache after headache, but of course with different hardware than you. Each build seems to require something different to correct. here's one fix you can try: Right-click the audio icon in the right end of the taskbar - select playback devices - select speakers or the default device - select "advanced" tab. - you should see a list of settings, one of which will be selected. That's the wrong one!! Start at the bottom of the list, the setting labelled CD Quality and test. Hopefully you hear the tone, and not see the error message. If it doesn't work, try all the settings until one sounds the tone - apply and exit. Good luck!
