    No audio after latest Windows 10 update, PC was without sound for 2 days. Compensation?


    Hi,

    The issue has already been fixed, but I have feedback to give and to ask about a matter regarding compensation.

    The audio on my PC was not working since the latest Windows 10 update. The issue has now been fixed by the help of the technician via your chat.

    However, I did spend in total 9 hours trying to get the audio to work on my PC. This consisted of 3 sessions on the chat with your agents over 2 days.

    My PC's audio was working perfectly fine before the latest Windows update, so I consider that the issue was caused by the Windows update itself.

    As the audio was not working on the PC, I could not use my PC for 2 days for anything that required sound.

    I have paid subscriptions to games and other services, such as Netflix, which I could not use due to the missing audio that was caused by the Windows update.


    Basically, Windows screwed up the new update which made my PC to be unusable for me for 2 days, as I use my PC mostly for gaming and movies.


    I contacted support on the chat again after the issue was fixed to ask what kind of compensation is due, just to receive an answer that was "If I would be on your place, I would face the same kind of frustration but I hope you can understand our limitation."


    No, I do not understand what sort of limitation does Microsoft have regarding this.

    They rolled out an update that I did not want and that ended up messing up the audio settings and drivers on my PC which made it close to unusable for me for 2 days and that I had to spend 9 hours to solve.



    Is Microsoft planning to compensate me on my 9 hours spent on trying to find a solution to a problem that was created by Windows update, and will there be any compensation regarding the paid services that I have subscribed to, and which I could not use, due to the audio problem that was caused by the Windows update?


    Who knows, this is messed up...

    :)

    lost Sound Audio after upgrade to Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would suggest you follow the steps below and see if it helps.

    Method 1: Type “windows updates” in the search bar and press Check for updates option. If updates are remaining, kindly install all of remaining windows updates.

    Method 2: If this doesn’t help I would recommend you try updating the Audio drivers from the manufacturer's website and check if the issue persists.

    Follow the steps to update the audio drivers:


    • Press Windows key + X key and click Device Manager.

    • Expand the Sound, Video and game controllers.

    • Right-click on the Sound card and click on Update driver software.

    • Restart the computer and check.

    Method 3:Try Uninstalling and then reinstalling the Sound drivers. Follow the steps below


    • Press Windows key + R, type “devmgmt.msc” in the run prompt.

    • Expand the Sound, video and game controllers, right-click the sound card, click uninstall.

    • Restart the computer, let Windows detect the driver and install by itself.

    • Manually download the latest drivers by going to the manufacturers Website.
    Hope this helps. Please respond for further queries.

    Regards,
