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.
