    After Windows Update, My Sound Has Just Vanished


    Hey Microsoft community,

    I have had this issue before and all I had to do was wait, but now I cannot as I do not have the time.

    Simply enough, I'm turning off my PC for the night through "Sleep" and I saw there was an update, I didn't want to update it at the time so I just left it to sleep. Magically enough, the update installs overnight despite I turned off automatic updates, and my sound isn't there.

    (What I mean by it isn't there After Windows Update, My Sound Has Just Vanished 0d59854bb3fa0428d23f41815543bf4f.png )


    It simply says "No speakers or headphones are plugged in" but my earphones were.

    I have tried deleting the driver and restarting my PC to see if it can repair itself, but no luck.

    If anyone can help me, please do.

    If possible, do not include anything that may harm my PC.


    PC Specs :

    Intel Core i7-8700

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

    ASUS TUF H310M-PLUS Gaming Motherboard

    8GB Of DDR4 Ram from Corsair

    A WD SSD

    A Seagate 1TB Hard-drive


    The Windows I am using is Microsoft Windows 10 Home.

    Please find a solution, I will be most grateful.


    Yours sincerely,

    Usna.

    :)

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue After Windows Update, My Sound Has Just Vanished :p

    After Windows Update, My Sound Has Just Vanished

    Sound vanished!


    Hi Ben

    Here is my sound panel it is selected but no sound from speakers when i right click and test. Was fine yesterday morning before the update that seems to be effecting alot of users from seeing the drivers thread here.

    The bottom checked one was added after I did what you suggested above that did get sound back to my headphones but not the speakers.

    The top 3 have been there since I got the laptop in June. Were all fine yesterday or last time I looked at this panel with icons and options available until yesterday when they all went to how you see them.
