  3. Sound Blaster Recon 3Di (no sound at all; for anything)

    Hi. I have a an Alienware m17x which was working fine up until I got the Windows 10 update & the sound wasn't working & then maybe a month later just started working on it's own without edit or downloads.

    Now all of a sudden over night (without any changes) I have no sound AGAIN! I don't know what the heck is going on but it's starting to seriously tick me off. Someone please help! I really need assistance to resolve this issue. This is beyond frustrating!!

    Thank you! no sound at all on w10 home :)

    If the Conexant is not at least Win 8.1 compatible it may not work in Win 10. I would have deleted the Conexent driver (reboot) and see if Windows installs the generic, basic function, High Definition Audio driver. If it does and you get sound that would confirm that the Conexant hardware is compatible and you need a Win 10 compatible driver. If Windows does not install the High Definition Audio driver then that says the Conexant hardware is not compatible.

    no sound at all on w10 home

    I just installed Win 10 (1511 version) on a Lenovo Z560 Ideapad (laptop). There are no Lenovo Conexant Win 8/8.1/10 drivers for this model. I used the Win 7 drivers and installed them using the Win 7 compatibility mode. The Conexant installed OK including System Mixer.
