  1. Windows 10 Not Playing System Sounds. All Other Sounds Are Okay.


    I've been using this computer for over a year and now all of the sudden I can't play system sounds.

    I can hear other sounds on my games and software, but not the system sounds like when an error pops up.

    When I open Volume Mixer, I click on the volume bar on "System Sounds" on the "Applications" section, nothing plays, but everything else plays fine.

    I even tried changing the Sounds to Windows Default in the Sounds settings as well as setting System Sounds to full blast, but they still don't play.

    When I created a new account and tested the system sounds, there, the system sounds played just fine, so this probably isn't a problem with my drivers.

    I tried Microsoft's troubleshooting wizard and it doesn't work at all.

    I really need to find a fix for this and I hope that you can help me. If you have a fix for this, please reply.

    :)

  3. No sound while playing audio and video files.

    Hi,

    I appreciate if you could answer to a few questions to narrow down to the issue.

    • Which is the application that you are using to play the files?
    • Did you try the same on a different player?
    • Did you perform any troubleshooting steps?
    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to check if the volume is set low or in mute state in Volume Mixer.

    • Right click on sound icon.
    • Open Volume Mixer check for the application that you are playing the files with and increase the volume and check.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to run “Playing audio” troubleshooter to diagnose and fix the issue.

    Follow these Steps to run Playing Audio Troubleshooter in Windows 10.

    1. Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    2. Select Troubleshooting.

    3. Select View all on the top left corner.

    4. Click on Playing audio.
