  • Make sure the audio device is enabled in BIOS.

    uninstall any audi driver packages that does not work.
    Check your device manager for devices with exclamation marks (indicating no driver is loaded for the device.

    Download and install the drivers from the computer (or mainboard) manufacturer and run Windows update until no more updates are detected.

    if this does not resolve the issue, this probably is due to a hardware issue. Contact your computer (or mainborad) manufacturer for support on the hardware.
