    Suddenly no Sound (W10)

    This morning we had no sound on our W10 Pro desktop. (The sound was fine till today, and no, we've not made any changes, but W10 recently did an Update.)

    I tried Uninstalling the driver and restarting. The new red line adjacent to the sound icon in the SysTray disappeared, but still no sound.

    I tried the W10 Troubleshoot:

    The speaker cable was already plugged into the back of the desktop (as it has been for months), but I unplugged it, and tried it in a different USB port, but that did not help. (The power light on the speakers is on.)

    Any advice would sure be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Alan

    Can you check to see if you have KB3140743 installed as a myriad of problems including BSODs have been reported following its install.

    If you have it then uninstall it to see if it resolves your audio problem.

    I haven't seen any problems reported in the Lounge, but a quick google shows there seem to have been a few; so far I have got off unscathed

    Hi Sudo,

    Thanks for replying!

    The morning after I posted, everything was suddenly back to normal. (I had Restarted the day before, to no effect.)

    And yes, KB3140743 had been installed (on 3/3) and that was the time the problem first surfaced.

    I wonder if MSFT issued some sort of fix Sunday or Monday and that solved it?

    Thanks again,

    Alan

    I think there will be quite a few others who will also be grateful if MS have sneaked a fix in given the problems that have been reported because of this update.

    Anyway, glad everything is back to normal for you.

    This situation is precisely why people objected to Win10 forced updates. Bad.
