  1. Audio Drivers and Devices Missing after Windows 10 20H2 Update


    Hello,


    After MUCH trial and error and troubleshooting, I still am having audio issues on my Lenovo Thinkpad T420. It began with a red X over my volume button, and I further noticed that my sound devices are missing, and even my speakers both laptop and external do not work. I am aware that this version of Thinkpad does not support Windows 10, but everything has been working well prior to this most recent update. So far here is all I have done to attempt to solve these problems:

    • Restarted my computer twice with no applied changes
    • Did a system restore to days before my update 4/15
    • Completed sound troubleshooting. Stated that my audio drivers were missing and that it could not find a problem
    • Uninstalled Intel Audio and High Definition drivers, restarted, and then reinstalled latest Windows 10 update.
    • Restarted audio services


    I have been on so many forums and have done so far everything that I can. I don't understand. Yesterday evening I was listening to music from my external speakers just fine.


    Note: After uninstalling my audio drivers and restarting AND updating, they are still missing!!!

    :)

    3. Find Realtek High Definition Audio
    4. Right click and hit update driver
    5. Browse my computer for driver software
    6. Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer
    7. Click Have Disk and hit browse
    8. Click on the Realtek HD Audio mod folder and look for win64

    additional if you want dts audio and others, install it now before next step.
