As long as you update to the latest version of Windows 10, you can find great new features and fixes. Unfortunately, big updates can bring new problems with them, and some of the most common are related to audio.
These audio-related issues can prevent people from playing videos, using certain apps, or listening to something on their speakers. It's not fun, especially when learning about the new features of the operating system, so let's try to fix some problems. Here are the ways you can fix Windows 10 sound problems to remove the dreaded sound of silence.
Run the audio troubleshooter
Windows 10 now has a comprehensive audio troubleshooter that can examine your audio system for signs of problems and recommend solutions. Since this troubleshooter can automatically locate and fix some of the issues outlined below, it's a great way to save time and should probably be your first stop.
Step 1: Use the search box on the taskbar and search for "troubleshooter". In the results, you should see an option that says Troubleshooting Settings. Select this.
Step 2: In the following windows, look in the Get Up and Running section for the option that says Play audio and select it. Then select Run the troubleshooter.
Step 3: A new troubleshooter icon will open on the taskbar. Select it to open the new window. You now have an option to troubleshoot the different types of connected speakers, including built-in speakers and headphones. In most cases, we recommend that you choose the default speakers, but you can customize them on your device. Select Next when done.
Step 4: Run the troubleshooter and then see what it has to say. The troubleshooter can offer recommendations to improve sound quality or identify driver issues that need to be fixed. Try what it suggests to see if that helps solve your problem!
Check the volume sliders and make sure your system is fully up to date:
So far, the 2020 updates to Windows 10 have caused a host of audio problems, including audio not working and audio from the third-party app too quiet to use properly.
If one of your recent Windows updates caused audio problems like these, you should first look at the volume mixer and see if anything has changed. Look at the systray and you should see a speaker icon on the right. Right click and choose to open the volume mixer. Check your sliders, especially looking for third-party apps, and make sure they look normal. Some sliders may have been turned down a lot and will need to be adjusted to adjust the volume.
Unfortunately, other recent audio problems have been harder to fix. If a systematic volume error occurs due to a recent update, even rolling back those updates has rarely proven effective in solving audio problems. Your best bet is to check for new updates and apply them quickly so you know when Microsoft will fix the problem.
Update your sound card drivers
One of the most common sources of sound problems is poor communication between Windows 10 and your preferred sound card or chip. This often makes their sound not work at all. Fortunately, there are ways to make Windows 10 and your audio hardware compatible. All you have to do is find the right updates for the job.
