Fast fixes for PC audio issues
If you’re having problems hearing sound through your PC’s speakers, this walkthrough will help you to solve them
For all the benefits that come with upgrading to Windows 10, there have been reports of issues to do with sound output for some, including not being able to hear music, movies or anything else through a PC’s speakers.
The problem seems to be particularly prevalent in PCs that are equipped with VIA HD Audio cards, with sounds only working in certain apps.
Fortunately, there is a workaround if you’re affected by this issue. Right-click Playback Devices, right-click the audio output device and set it as the default device. Then select the device with your left mouse button, choose Properties, select the Enhancements tab and check ‘Disable all enhancements’. That should help fix the problem.
If you don’t have a VIA HD Audio card and are still having sound problems, then try the steps outlined in this tutorial. You might be surprised by how straightforward and effective they can be.
