    Sound Drivers Don't Function After Installing Windows 10


    Greetings,
    I've recently installed Windows 10 via Microsoft's "Media Creation Tool"[fig. 1] for 64-bit operating systems, selecting the second option to keep only personal files and not apps (thus I'm not able to revert the OS back to 8.1). However, after the instillation, I noticed the sound drivers—or something pertaining to the audio on the laptop stopped functioning.
    Even with headphones plugged in, and the obvious built-in speakers/microphone, a red 'x' apears next to the audio icon in the system tray[fig. 2]. When the cursor hovers over the icon, an info box displays the text "No speakers or headphones are plugged in".[fig. 3]

    So, I tried viewing the available playback devices with disabled and disconnected audio devices shown.[Fig. 4] Nothing shows up but a device named "Digital Audio (HDMI)"[Fig. 5] And no recording devices show up at all.[Fig. 6]
    Next, I attempted to view the devices shown in the Device Manager. Under "Sound, video and game controllers" two items are shown: "High Definition Audio Device" and "IDT High Definition Audio CODEC".[Fig. 7]
    I've attempted to update and uninstall/reinstall both of these. Nothing has worked so far.
    After this, I've restarted the laptop about two times prior to reinstalling Realtek High Definition Audio Drivers.

    Nothing's worked, even restarting the computer alone.
    Please, I need some help.

    Thanks.

  2. no sound windows 10

    in reply to trbogt

    I have uninstalled and installed my sound and video game driver a number of times with no change in the sound lasting only 3 minutes or so after rebooting.

    I have a Toshiba laptop PSC0YC-03G026 that worked fine with Windows 7. The sound stopped functioning properly about 6 weeks after I downloaded windows 10.

    I have a high definition audio device from microsoft. Date 10/29/15. Version 10.0.10586.0.

    I don't have sound max integrated digital audio.

    What should I be installing? I have simply followed the directions to installing the latest driver after uninstalling. Maybe I should try something different but don't know what.

    Thank you for your help.

    Kathryn

    Don't despair, Apollo - help is at hand..*Wink

    - assuming you have Realtek sound onboard..
    you might try going to their site and downloading
    the Windows 10 driver they have recently posted there..

    Realtek

    if the driver installed correctly, you should be able access the interface
    via a right-click on the sound icon (bottom right corner of the desktop)

    the RealTek speaker icon should appear as an option..

    As seen in [Fig. 4], that's all I see when I right-click the icon.

  10. hmm, can you supply full details of the Make and Model No. of your laptop
    - a quick review of its specs, might yield a clue..

    if you right-click in that box in playback devices,
    you should get an option to show disabled devices

  12. the specs say " DTS Studio Sound™," for audio,
    so you may have to contact Toshiba support for more info..

    What does it mean exactly by DTS sound?
    And how do I contact Toshiba?
