Infuriating audio issue. PLEASE HELP

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm experiencing a bizarre audio issue on windows 10. My audio cut out one day. The level indicators in windows showed that audio was playing, but nothing was coming out of my speakers.

 

I noticed my audio level had been changed to 67% as well. I solved the issue by removing my audio device in device manager, and restarting my computer. Windows reinstalled the device and its drivers for me, and the issue was solved. However, the version windows installs by default is an outdated driver, so windows tries to force an update to fix that. When it does, my volume is changed to 67%, and my audio stops working again. My audio breaks the second I click the slider, and the only way to fix it is to completely remove my audio device and its drivers, and restart.

 

I don't like leaving my PC on all the time, and windows will eventually force and update in order to have the latest audio drivers anyway. I have no idea why this is happening.

 

Can anyone provide any insight? I would be eternally greatfull!

Try to install the drivers from the manufacturer.

If it's motherboard audio you should just go to that motherboard's download page.

I tried that, and it causes the same issue

Restart audio service should fix the cut when it happens but as for prevention, something is opening and reducing your volume and it's quite possible it's also trying to change your sample rate, unless you figure out what program is causing it there's not much more we can do.

Restarting audio services does fix the issue. I'm thinking I may just have to factory reset, which will be a major pain in the ass.
