  1. All Audio Working, but No Playback Sound in Windows Apps?


    Windows updated today 4-13-21 to version Win10 64 v 20H2


    All audio drivers are updated. El Gato Wave 3 mic, NOT using the Wave Length Software, so that isn't an issue. Never have used it.


    Microphone is working, and is detected by Windows, by online mic testers, and I called my wife and we had a conversation, so mic and speakers are working.


    All audio from other sources works spotify, youtube, etc..


    The ONLY things I cannot get to playback sound are recorded sounds like the Windows voice recorder and the Windows camera app which I use to record videos. I used both of these last night with no issues. I tried recording in Audacity too, and same issue. It shows that it's picking up the mic sound, but no audio on playback. There were no changes between then and now, but today they do not work. I updates all my drivers thinking that was the issue, but didn't fix it.


    I double checked all the cables, it's not muted, the mic and speakers are set to the default/primary devices etc..


    The kicker is that previously recorded files that played fine also don't playback, so that would have nothing to do with the current state of my mic, which has me more baffled.


    I'm at wits end here trying to figure this out.

    :)

  2. Sound (Audio Playback)

    Hi Lerato,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your concern that you are facing sound issues after upgrade to Windows 10.

    I would like to inform that this issue might have occurred due to the existing drivers after upgrade to Windows 10.

    I suggest you to uninstall the existing driver and update it.

    Steps:

    • Right click on the Start button from the desktop and select
      Device Manager.
    • Expand Audio inputs and outputs, right click on
      High Definition Audio Device and click on Uninstall.
    • Restart and Windows will re-install the
      IDT High Definition Audio driver
      .
    • If it works fine otherwise try to search for the drivers with the help of model number of your computer from the Manufacturer’s website and install them.

    My audio no longer works on windows 10

    Hi Brendon,

    Thank you for being part of Microsoft Community.

    • What all troubleshooting steps have you performed to get the issue fixed?
    • Did you make any changes prior to the issue?

    I would suggest you to turn off Audio enhancements and then check if it helps.


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

    • On the Playback tab, right-click (or tap 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.
    Please revert if you face any issues with Windows in future.
