No Audio Output RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have windows 10. A virus appeared to take out Google chrome but I am using Edge. It also took out my audio. I have a Red X in the lower right corner over the speaker. No Audio Device is installed it says. It checks and finds that hardware change "might not" have been detected. Can I reinstall driver for sound? Some other solution?

  • Well please check and make sure any virus \ malware is not present first. Do you have Defender? Have you done a scan? Also Malwarebytes do offer a free download to check and clean malware.

    If you right click start choose Device Manager, expand Sound, video and game controllers, does that show a device? Perhaps with a warning mark? Double click the device go to the Drivers tab. First try Uninstall and when that finishes restart the computer and see if it gets detected and installed automatically.
