    DisplayPort audio not appearing in device manager


    Running Windows 10 with 2x HP S240uj monitors with built-in B&O speakers.Up until two weeks ago I was running audio through one of the monitor speakers via DisplayPort connection. I could see both monitors as output audio devices in both sound settings and device manager, and could switch between them and the default PC speakers. Now, both monitor audio sources are gone. Only the PC speakers appear as an output device. No amount of restarting or playing with settings on the monitors has helped.Any assistance would be appreciated.

    :)

    DisplayPort audio issue with Windows 10


    I'm using a Surface Pro 2. After my upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, I'm not getting any audio out from the DisplayPort.

    I use DisplayPort to HDMI to a receiver. I've upgraded to the latest RealTek audio drivers, but it's not helping. Could there be a different driver issue at play?

    Any suggestions appreciated.

  3. Audio Problems

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

    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.

    Then reboot. then test the headset again.

  4. DisplayPort audio not appearing in device manager

    port COM and LPT in the Devices Manager are not appearing

    Hi Luis,


    I suggest you follow the steps to check for hidden devices, and check if it helps.

    1.Press Windows + X and click on Device Manager.

    2.Click on View menu and select Show hidden devices. See if this helps in getting the ports to list.

    3. Expand the Ports under device manager. Uninstall any entries which appear grayed out, then restart.

    4. Right-click your computer name in Device Manager and click Scan for hardware changes. Device manager scans your system and automatically reinstalls your device.

    If the issue persists, then I recommend you to install the latest drivers for your motherboard.

    Do let us know the result.

    Thank you.
