  2. Audio device unrecognised after waking from sleep


    From time to time I wake my laptop from sleep and find that the audio driver (Conexant Venice) is no longer loaded. The audio hardware is listed in the Device Manager as just "base system device" (or two base system devices, to be precise). Rebooting fixes the problem each time, but it takes a while. Is there a quicker way to make the audio work again than rebooting? I've tried obvious steps like running the troubleshooter and disabling and then re-enabling the devices.

  3. Re-enable audio device

    Hi,

    I would be happy to assist you.

    Before we proceed with troubleshooting, I would need little information on the issue.

    • Are using speakers / head phones to listen to audio?
    If you have disabled the audio device, then you might not see it under the list of playback devices. I would suggest you to follow these steps to make sure you see the disabled devices:


      • Open
        Control panel
        .

      • Click Hardware and Sound and then Click on
        Sounds.

      • Under Playback tab, right click on the empty area and make sure
        “Show Disabled Devices” has a check mark on it. If headphones/Speakers are disabled, it will now show up in the list.

      • Right click on the device and
        Enable it. Click OK.
    If the issue still persists, try enabling speakers automatically using steps below.


    • Go to Settings> Click on themes> Advance sound settings> right click on the speakers or the audio device youo have connected > click on
      Configure device.

    • Test the sound level you want, click Next.

    • And configure the audio devices.

    Hope this helps you. Do reply if you need further assistance on Windows 10.

    Thank you.

    More than two audio devices

    Numerous audio devices - why?

    See attached screenshot. I just got a new, bespoke PC and I'm confused as to why so many audio devices are listed.

    The majority, as you can see, are coming up as "not plugged in". There seem to be two that are active - the system's default output and something called Realtek Audio HD.

    Questions:

    1) Why so many?
    2) What's the difference between the two active ones, and which should I use?

    Thanks in advance.
