    Sound only works on cold boot


    Hello,


    I have an awesome Dell laptop running the latest version of Windows 10 that I have had for a couple of years now. I have had this issue since I bought the laptop and have never been able to get the issue resolved.


    When I cold boot the computer, sound works fine. But whenever I do a re-start, sound doesn't work.


    Most people seem to have the opposite problem, or having issues with sound not working at all, so I really haven't been able to find any articles related to my specific problem.


    I did find something about Windows Fast Boot feature that might be causing an issue, so I tried turning off fast boot and that didn't work either. Sound works fine from cold boot but doesn't work after re-start.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Logoff, Logon, shutdown, restart, startup sounds not playing


    I'm running Threshold 2 of Win10. It seems the Startup Sound is working again. Previously, even checked it would only play intermittently on a warm boot, not a cold one. Now it seems to work all the time. There is a 3rd party app that lets you change the Startup Sound to whatever you want, without you having to go through the hack steps.

    The Exit Windows sound is another matter. Even enabled via the Registry and reappearing in the Sound list, selecting a sound for that does not make it play at shutdown.

    Hello Vijay,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I have run through all of your troubleshooting suggestions:

    Troubleshooter advised "Generic Audio Driver Not Fixed"


    Sound only works on cold boot 59a4b7fb-30ad-4e52-88cb-ac88eadd6d15?upload=true.jpg


    Driver update isn't necessary according to Windows 10:

    Still no sound after system re-start, but sound works fine after cold boot.
