How to Fix Sound Not Working Windows in 10 After Update

Are you experiencing sound problems where the sound is not working after a windows 10 update? Well, I will tell you five steps in order to fix these problems.


1. Check if You Actually Have Sound On

Obviously, the first step you should perform is to check if your volume is on, to do this, make sure your volume bar looks like the second picture.


     1. Volume Icon in the Bottom Right


     2. Left click it

If your volume bar looks exactly like the picture then there is another problem.

2. Update Your Drivers

If the first step didn't work, then try this step.


     1. First, press ⊞ and S (Windows and S)


     2. Write "Device Manager"


     3. Find "Sound, video and game controllers" and click the arrow, then find your main audio driver (High Definition Audio Device is default)
     4. Right-click it and press properties, then on the top click the driver tab then click Update Driver
     5. Then click Search Automatically for updated driver software

If it then updates then you have fixed it, if not then read the next one

3. Change your Playback Device


     1. Volume Icon in the Bottom Right


     2. Right-click it and click playback devices


     3. Aimlessly set all of them to a default device

If that doesn't work then try the last 2 and hope they work.

4. Uninstall your Audio Driver

     1. First, press ⊞ and S (Windows and S)


     2. Write "Device Manager"


     3. Find "Sound, video and game controllers" and click the arrow, then find your main audio driver (High Definition Audio Device is default)


     4. Right-click it and press uninstall


     5. Press OK, then either replug in your audio device or reinstall the high definition audio device driver from your manufacturer

If this doesn't work, then hope the last one will.

5. Try Window's Audio Troubleshooter

     1. First, press ⊞ and S (Windows and S)


     2. Write "Find and fix audio recording problems"


     3. Open it and wait for it to detect problems


     4. Follow all the instructions provided by the troubleshooter

That's about it, if none of these worked, then I don't know how to fix it, I apologize.
