Why isn't my sound working?
#1
Why isn't my sound working?
I have an ASUS Q500 notebook laptop by the way.


Ever since I've updated to Windows 10 I've had multiple issues, one of which being my sound driver. The sound would just randomly stop working. However, I'd always be able to fix it by uninstalling the driver (Realtek High Definition) and reinstalling it. And the problem wouldn't return for a number of months... but not this time. I don't know what to do. My computer tried replacing it with a couple of other drivers during the troubleshooting process to no avail. I'm worried that this problem is related to my actual computer.

Any ideas from tech-savvy members?

RE: Why isn't my sound working?
I can't help too much, I do have the Realtek High Definition sound thingy and it works fine, other than sometimes not being very loud which I attribute to the source materials I click on.

I don't have the Q500, I have a G752v.

Maybe its not the Realtek, but something else in your setup ?
That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens . . . The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. . . . it is wrong and ultimately self defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years and we must do more to stop it.

That's actually not that insulting.

Laptops constantly get stuff like people turning on Airplane mode and note and not knowing what they did, etc. All it takes is one wrong function key-strike, and it's like "Dude. . . why is my computer doing that!?"

Not this laptop, I think it was the one before, had horribly distorted sound, even at very low volume levels.

Eventually, I found buried in the sound menu somewhere, an equalizer! And all the settings were max'd out. I centered all the controls, and the damn thing sounded fine after that.


So, maybe it's just a setting somewhere ?


Good luck finding it though.

All of the above (good answers, every one) can be subsumed under the answer, 'Windows 10 is a nerve-wracking puddle of emu piss, which is why your sound keeps crashing.'
