  1. Only System Sounds Playing (Windows 10)


    Within the past 3 days, sound has stopped going through my headphones, instead audio only plays through the speakers on my monitor. I have updated every single audio driver, and restarted countless times. I have had every device set a default, but nothing works. I do have system sounds play, but that itself is inconsistent. The headphones themselves work, as I have tested them with other devices. Audio does not play through chrome, or any other games. However, for unknown reasons, audio will play through Discord if the correct output is selected.

    :)

  2. No sound while playing audio and video files.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer to a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • Which is the application that you are using to play the files?
    • Did you try the same on a different player?
    • Did you perform any troubleshooting steps?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if the volume is set low or in mute state in Volume Mixer.

    • Right click on sound icon.
    • Open Volume Mixer check for the application that you are playing the files with and increase the volume and check.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Follow these Steps to run Playing Audio Troubleshooter in Windows 10.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Playing audio.

    Hope the information helps in resolving the issue related to the sound issue. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    No sound playing after windows 10 upgrade

    Hi,  



    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10. 



    I understand the inconvenience that you are facing on Windows 10, we will help you with this issue.

    In order to assist you better, I would like to know the following queries:


    • Are you facing this issue only with any specific app or with all the apps?

    • Are you able to hear System sounds? (Such as Windows logon/shutdown sound.)
    I suggest you to try the Methods below and check if it helps.

    Method 1:

    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps:


      • Right click on the speaker icon which is on the bottom right corner.

      • Click on playback devices.

      • Under playback tab highlight speakers\headphones.

      • Then Click on properties.

      • Select Advanced tab.

      • Then Click on Restore to default.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/fix-sound-problems#v1h=tab04

    If issue persist, I would suggest you to follow Method 2.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to reinstall the Windows 7 audio drivers in
    compatibility mode and check if it works.

    This is to check if this is caused due to any driver compatibility issues.

    Note: The steps for Windows 8.1 applies to Windows 10 as well.

    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have any further related query.
