  1. audio devices not working or only working selectively and I do not know why.


    recently I've been having issues where my headset, built in laptop speakers, second monitor speakers, and Bluetooth headset are all either completely unable to have any sounds from my computer except discord come through them. If I do get one of the options working, all other completely cease or work, and neither the headset or the built in laptop speakers seem to work at all. I know it isn't an issue of connection as the computer registers all the extra devices and the laptop speakers in audio devices, and the indicator goes up and down showing that the mics work. I tested them on other systems and they work fine. As I said before, the only source of audio I can get to go through any of these sources is discord when directly swapping the input and output sources, however no sound can be heard from literally anything no matter what I do.

    I am on windows 10 with what I assume is the most up to date stuff. I have had issues of sound not going through headphones, however the same solution did not fix the problem this time.


    Until yesterday my audio worked fine, swapping to my laptop speakers if I disconnected headphones, and reconnecting flawlessly. I did not change anything until things just started not working mid use. what are some things I can check to try and fix this problem and where do I find them?

    :)

  2. AUDIO SERVICE NOT WORKING.

    Hi,

    In that case, I suggest you follow below.

    Step 1:

    In the search box on the taskbar, type device manager, then select it from the results.

    Step 2:

    Select the arrow next to Sound, video and game controllers to expand it.

    Step 3:

    Look for IDT High Definition Audio CODEC. If it's listed, right-click it and select Update Driver, then select Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.

    Step 4:

    You’ll see a list of pre-installed drivers. Select High Definition Audio Device, and then select Next.

    Step 5:

    Restart PC

    Let me know the results after performing the above.

    Regards

  4. audio devices not working or only working selectively and I do not know why.

    Audio Not Working after numerous fixes...

    Hi there J, I will be your Independent Advisor for today, I hope we can both resolve your problem.

    What I can suggest is DELETE completely all the Audio drivers listed in the device manager.

    There should be a small box that you can tick to delete completely the Audio driver.

    And make sure you remove all audio devices listed.

    Here is how to do it

    Here the steps to completely remove a Device off your computer.

    Step 1. Use shortcut keys Win + X on Windows 10.

    Step 2. Select Device Manager.

    Step 3. Expand the entry. Right-click the problematic device and select Uninstall device.

    Step 4. You may need to check the option Delete the driver software for this device, and then click the Uninstall button.

    Step 5. Reboot the computer.
