    Sound, Video and Game controllers tab disappeared and does not come back in Device Manager


    I started the day using my msi laptop perfectly, no problems with audio, then it said it needed to restart to update something, I agreed and it restarted.

    There was the "working on updates" screen, 100%, it restarted again, another "working on updates" screen, this time it took a few minutes.

    But this time the audio didnt work. I looked on the desktop tab and there was the red cross over the audio controller. I clicked it, ran the troubleshooter, it only said I needed to restart the computer to fix it. I did so. Another "working on updates" screen on 100%.

    So the laptop turned on, no audio still, the problem continued.

    I opened the device manager and could not find any audio devices. The "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" tab was gone. I tried installing the legacy "sound, video and game controllers" tab, but as soon as it installs it, it disappears again.


    I have no idea what happened, it was working perfectly before I restarted this morning.

    What could I do? What could it be?

    :)
     

  2. no audio device output installed AND no sound, video, and game controllers tab in my device manager anymore

    It happened recently within a month or so. The sound used to work. I tried to install drivers but I don't even have the sound tab anymore. The troubleshooter doesn't do anything it says can't detect the problem.

    1. Run Audio / Hardware & Devices Troubleshooter

    Windows Key+I > Update & security > Troubleshoot >

    A. Playing Audio > Run the troubleshooter

    B. Hardware & Devices > Run the troubleshooter

    2. Take actions related to Audio Driver

    Windows Key+X > Device Manager > Sound, Video & game controllers > Right Click on the entry below (if more than one, then you will have to repeat the steps for all) > Properties > Driver Tab >

    A. Roll Back - If Roll back driver is enabled, roll it back

    B. Uninstall - Uninstall Device and restart to reinstall it automatically

    C. Download and reinstall the driver from computer manufacturer's website - If you face issue, let me know your computer make and model?

    Windows 10 and disappearing sound

    Hi,



    Thank you for updating us on the issue.



    Since the above steps did not help to fix the issue. I suggest you to uninstall and re-install the sound card and check if it helps.


    • Press (Windows key + X) and click on “Device Manager”.

    • Expand “Sound, video and game controller”.

    • Right click on the device driver and select
      uninstall.

    • Once uninstall is done, restart the computer.

    Hope this helps. Post us with the status we will be glad to help you.
