    Latest Windows Update broke my audio. Sound settings and driver outputs 5.1 sound fine,...


    Hello, I just installed the latest version of Windows 10 and now none of my programs are outputting any sound to any of my 5.1 speakers other than the stereo left and right. My rear speakers and subwoofer are silent in all programs. This is especially odd considering that in both my motherboard's Realtek driver software and also the windows Sound Settings panel, the "test" function produces audio in all channels perfectly. Everything seems to work fine in troubleshooting - just not when I actually need to use the devices. It's literally just things like Chrome/Firefox/Edge, video games, iTunes

    :)

  2. NO sound in windows 10 after update audio driver.

    Hey
    RabiulHasanCTG
    , so sorry to hear about the issues you are having with Windows 10. I'll give you a few suggestions. I'll go ahead and assume that you already tried the step conorgdaly suggested below and not repeat that
    step to try. I hope this helps.

    How to fix No Sound on Windows 10 issue



    Try this method for restoring sound:

    • Press Windows key + W and type
      troubleshooting.
    • Select Troubleshooting.
    • Select View all on the top left corner.
    • Click Hardware and Devices.
    • Follow the on-screen instruction to run the troubleshooter.


    If the issue is still unresolved, you can try another method for restoring sound:

    Step 1: Right-click the sound icon in the taskbar located at the bottom right of the screen and select Playback Devices from the ensuing context menu.

    Step 2: Select the current playback device in use and by default it should be the speakers. Double-click on it to open its properties window.

    Step 3: Got to Advanced section and change the bit rate to either of the following - 24bit/44100 Hz or 24bit/192000Hz - depending on the speaker configuration.



    If the issue is still unresolved, you can try another method for restoring sound:

    Step 1: Launch Start Menu, search for Device Manager and then launch it.

    Step 2: Expand Sound and audio devices.

    Step 3: Right-click on the current sound driver and choose uninstall.

    Step 4: Finally, click on Scan for hardware changes and the updated driver will be automatically installed.

    That's it. Your computer speakers should now be able to play sound normally. If the sound is still not working, then try downloading and installing the latest sound card drivers for Windows 10 from the manufacturer's website.



    Also, here is a site with good steps for troubleshooting audio.

    Sound Blaster ZXR no sound through Optical output

    Since i updated to Windows 10 1903 from 1809 my Creative Sound Blaster Z X R audio card has issues with sound output through Optical S/PDIF Out jack.

    I set this through the Sound Blaster Pro Studio control panel under Cinematic Encoder to Dolby Digital Live to get sound output to my Logitech Z906 Speakers connected to it's optical input.

    Latest Windows Update broke my audio. Sound settings and driver outputs 5.1 sound fine,... [​IMG]


    When i do this i receive this message and it will not allow me to set the encoder setting to either Dolby Digital Live or DTS connect. As far as i can see nothing else is using my audio device.

    Never had this issue before this update always worked fine i read about issues with other Sound Blaster Z cards and Dolby Atmos with this update 1903.

    Tried reinstalling software and drivers does nothing for it i am using the latest driver software for this card, works fine using 3.5mm jacks and RCA jacks for speakers but not optical anymore. As i am not even able to select this this Encoder in the control panel of Sound Blaster just the message shown and goes back to no Encoder.

    No Audio Output Device is Installed

    Hi,

    You will need to select Windows 8 from the drop down list while installing the driver in compatibility mode.

    I would suggest you to try setting the speaker as default audio output by following the steps below and check if it helps.

    1. Right click on the sound icon on the right bottom corner of the taskbar.

    2. Select "playback devices".

    3. If "speaker" is not set as the default device, highlight it and click "set as default".

    5. Save the changes.

    Let us know the result.
