Troubleshoot sound in windows 10

Troubleshoot sound in windows 10

Check cables, volume
  • Check your speaker and headphone connections for loose cables or the wrong jack.
  • Check your power and volume levels, and try turning all the volume controls up.
  • Some speakers and apps have their own volume controls, and you might have to check them all.
  • Try connecting using a different USB port.
  • And remember that your speakers probably won’t work when headphones are plugged in.
Set default device

If you’re connecting to an audio device using USB or HDMI, you might need to set that device as the default.

Open Start , enter Sound, select it from the list of results. On the Playback tab, select a device, then Set Default.

Run troubleshooter

Audio troubleshooter might be able to fix audio problems automatically. Try it once

To run the troubleshooter,

select the Start  button, type Troubleshoot, and then select Troubleshoot from the list of results.

Select Playing Audio > Run the troubleshooter

Check Device Manager

Open Start , enter Device Manager, and select it from the list of results.

Under Sound, video and game controllers, select your sound card, open it,

select the Driver tab, and select Update Driver.

If update doesn’t work well, do following 

Uninstall your audio driver: open Device Manager, right-click (or press and hold) the audio driver, and select Uninstall. Restart your device and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

And if that didn’t work, try using the generic audio driver that comes with Windows. Here’s how:

Open Device Manager, right-click (or press and hold) your audio driver > Update driver software… > Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, select High Definition Audio Device, select Next, and follow the instructions to install it.

Turn off Audio Enhancements

Go to Start , enter Sound, and select Sound Control Panel from the list of results.

On the Playback tab, right-click (or press and hold) the Default Device and select Properties.

On the Enhancements tab, select the Disable all enhancements check box and try to play your audio device.

If that doesn’t work, select Cancel and, on the Playback tab, select another default device (if you have one), select the Disable all enhancements check box, and try to play audio again. Do this for each default device.

Try different audio formats

Go to Start , enter Sound, and select Sound Control Panel from the list of results.

On the Playback tab, right-click (or press and hold) the Default Device, and then select Properties.

On the Advanced tab, under Default Format, change the setting, and then retest your audio device. If that doesn’t work, try changing the setting again.
