  1. Sound randomly stopped working

    Hi, I have a Windows 10 Desktop. Everything was running fine. I was browsing reddit on one monitor and playing youtube in the other like usual. I paused youtube to go the store. When I came back 30 minutes later and resumed video the sound would not work. I have 3 different audio outputs, I switched between all of them (tv (second monitor), speakers (realtek), and USB headset) and nothing was working although windows showed sound. While I was troubleshooting through the Windows audio troubleshooter it found no problems, but I got a random notification and heard the system sound through my default output (speakers).

    I checked for driver updates and windows updates. I restarted the computer, nothing. I went into windows services and restarted the Windows audio and the audio started playing on an open youtube video, but when I tried to change it no sound until I restarted it again.

    Sound Randomly Stops Working on Windows 10


    One of the possible reasons why the sound on your Windows 10 PC is not working is due to an incompatible or outdated driver. To resolve your concern, we recommend that you download the recently available sound driver in our Windows Update Catalog.
    To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Open a browser and go to
    • In the Search box, copy and paste this information HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_111D&DEV_76C7 and click the Search button.
    • Select the most updated sound driver, which is Tempo driver update for IDT High Definition Audio CODEC.
      Last Updated is 5/8/2015, Version 6.10.6504.0, File Size 13.1 MB.
    • Click Download.
    In addition, before you install this driver we recommend that you uninstall the previous driver in your Windows 10 PC through the Device Manager. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start Menu.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Click the drop-down arrow for Sound, video and game controllers to view the sound device.
    • Right-click on the name of the sound driver and select Properties.
    • Click on the Driver tab and select Uninstall.

    Let us know if the solution above works for you.
