Cool Loss of sound - Windows 10 desktop

I recently lost all sound on my desktop that is running Windows 10. I have no idea why this occurred. I recently installed Roxio software for converting video files to DVDs, but the sound was fine after I had done that. I have not, that I can recall, download/installed any other software other than that.

My system is, as mentioned, running Windows 10.

I have an AMD A8-3800 APV at 2.40 ghz
16 GB of RAM
64 bit Windows operation system.

Haven't had to bother you guys in a LONG time...am in desperate need of help...someone? ANYONE???

THanks,

The THom-Guy

Make sure you did not accidentally MUTE it. Is the Speaker ICON shown next to the clock? Is there a "X" by it?? Open it is the volume slide up?

START>Device Manager>

Find the Sound Card and open it then click on Driver Tab. Will be under Sound, video and game controllers

Probably have several entries there, right click on probably "High Definition Audio Device" This will depend on what sound device you are using.

Right click then click on Update Driver, let it search may say the current driver is already installed. Then on properties click on Hardware Changes. See if anything happens?

If there are any yellow or red marks next to any entry in Sound then you need to reinstall the driver.

I hope you can fix this easily enough my friend!!!

Im on Win98se and I lost my sound once and didnt have it for months,I didnt know what was wrong.....

One day I ran SFC and it said my sound card driver files were deleted! -- It restored them and all was ok.......


I had SYSTRAY disabled which may have caused that...... I HAVENT DISABLED IT SINCE IN CASE!!!

Good luck getting your sound back

Cool Loss of sound - revisited!

Okay, I screwed my initial reply up and deleted everything I'd typed!!! Okay, to make it brief - everything says all is well with my sound setup - driver is most current, no issues with any of my hardware, I did NOT accidentally MUTE my system either!!! (WHEW on that last one!!!)

As an additional bit of information, I did install an update to some video editing software I use that's from a site called AVS4YOU...I like their stuff a lot and use various software titles of theirs to burn DVDs and CDs as well as edit and rework video files...I'm in touch with them, but I have a feeling they're not going to be very helpful...SO, if ANYBODY has some additional thoughts, please share them - I've got to get this fixed!!!

Thanks a TON!!!

Within the AVS Video Editor

Also could be a Codec problem
