    Sound and USB drivers do not work anymore


    Good morning, My laptop (HP Pavillon laptop 14 and Windows 10 21H1 build 19043.1110) had yesterday some error in using Zoom (I do not know if this is linked to today's issue). Then by relaunching today my laptop, I could see that the audio driver is disabled with UNKNOWN audio device (not the realtek as this is not detected anymore. The driver windows repair software does not seem to work as it runs without any results or progress. Now my USB mouse is not detected anymore. I tried to restart the laptop to no avail (by the way the laptop now takes a long time to restart). Do you have any ideas? Thank you so much for your kind help. Kind regards, Yacun

    :)

  3. Sound doesn't work - but driver won't reinstall

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, I would suggest you to go to the device manager and check if the sound drivers are installed. If installed please update the drivers and check.

    Step 1:


    • Press Windows key + X.

    • Click on Device Manager, expand “sound, video and game controllers”
      and check if any sound drivers are installed.

    • If yes, right click on the driver and hit update.
    Or else go the manufacturer website and install the latest driver.

    Step 2: Also run hardware troubleshooter and check if it helps.


    • Type Troubleshooting in the search box and hit enter.

    • Click on Troubleshooting tab.

    • Click on view all option on the upper left corner.

    • Select the Hardware and Device options from the list.
    Hope it helps.

    Sound and USB drivers do not work anymore

    Sound driver off

    Hi,

    It's possible that your sound driver was turned off by a third-party application. To fix it, we suggest that you use the built-in Windows 10 audio troubleshooter by following these steps:

    • Click Start.
    • Type Troubleshoot and press Enter.
    • Click Playing Audio.
    • Click Run the troubleshooter.

    If in case the audio troubleshooter doesn't work, use the other steps in this
    article
    . Just click the drop-down arrow and select the other choices offered.

    Let us know if you're able to restore the sound on your computer after following these steps.
