  1. Audio problems.


    My audioincluding the microphone stopped working yesterday, and now the speaker icon has an x mark on it. I've tried booting the computer, installing them from the Realtek website, I've checked the hardware with the CMD command. Basically everything except booting back to factory settings. The device is Acer Nitro 5 AN515-56-52VA with Windows 11. Bought 28.12.2022 from a Finnish electronics store called "Power". Even my headset isn't working now, altough it did yesterday. I've read many conversations about this, and many articles. I'm really annoyed, and I have meetings and calls to be in,

    May I suggest to completely uninstall all Audio drivers listed in the Device manager including the headset. Please make sure to completely remove.

    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 Sound and Audio devices. 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.

    Repeat the steps in all the Audio devices listed.
