    Sound lost after Windows update to 1903


    Hi,

    I have a Windows 10 Pro Build 1903 that lost its sound.
    After the latest update I no longer have a "Speaker" output under my sound devices.

    The device is a SB X-Fi, connected to simple speakers. I've followed many various threads on how to fix (disable/re-enable, uninstall, reinstall, update drivers, etc with no luck). The only way to get sound back was to re-image my desktop to original 2017 Windows 10. But after a full update sound is no longer available.


    Any help would be great!

    Thank you!

    Sound lost after Windows update to 1903

    update 1903 sound problem

    I have just updated to 1903, and have lost all sound. I have a Creative Audigy2 ZS Pro, yes, I know it's old, but it was working perfectly on build 1809.

    After this 1903 update, no sound, so I went back to 1809, and hey presto, I got my sound back. I then tried the very latest 1903 build, but lost the sound again. Have MS got an answer? I will have to go back to 1809 if I want to hear anything, but can wait
    a day or so if anyone at MS can give me a solution.
