Results for: audio problem
I have used the MS Windows trouble shooter for speakers (numerous times). I believe after a software update my speakers have been garbled (not clear sounding). I usually run the trouble shooter (the problem with speakers comes back after shutting off the computer), normally the trouble shooter fixes the problem, but not always. I could not find any frequently asked questions that handle this situation or a permanent fix/correction for it.
I had a work PC configured, then Microsoft forced an update
Hi, I would like to ask a Microsoft Manager, (any department will do), how would you feel after you find that your working PC is not working anymore, while you have a customer in front of you waiting to start a recording session he paid for. I have a DAW, configured with 3 monitor and one professional Dante audio interface. I run a recording studio. My work is to record musician sessions in a dynamic way, following and inspiring artists to focus on creativity and music, not on technology. Today I had to cancel the session, a band that arrived from abroad, because the last Windows update left my system in a non operative status. I am working hard to recover the technical situation, but I think I have lost a customer. They asked me: why you do not use MAC? I decided to use Windows because I was curious to see if the belief that Mac OS is better for professional recording studio was correct. I gave Microsoft credit. But, this is the third time I have this problem. It is not acceptable. I will update (should I say upgrade) the systems to Mac, but as a short term solution I have to reconfigure the DAW. Do you know what I have to do to reconfigure my system and how long it will take me? I will tell you. Read the following log. 1. AMD Radeon HD 7770 Ghz Edition - driver gone - I had to reinstall - 40 minutes 2. wrong resolution on display n.2 (LG ultrawide HDMI) - 10 min. 3. three desktop - on the display n. 1 I have icons of the previous n. 2 / on display 2 there is nothing / on disp. 3 a mess - 20 min. 4. The color management is gone! I had to run Spider5Express on 3 monitors to recalibrate the colour - 1 hour and 30 minutes 5. Audio: reconfiguration I will continue later... but... Gentleman, my feeling now is that my DAW is not really mine! Microsoft have the control on my belonging. I pay for something that I have to disconnect physically from Internet otherwise I can not avoid updates? This is unacceptable and ridiculous.

Assigning Channels for Bluetooth Speakers on Windows 10?
Hi, all! New to here. There's a problem I failed to settle from the Internet, thus gonna ask here. It's about output my Windows 10 Home audio to multiple Bluetooth speakers WITH stereo effects. The speakers are Bose SoundLink Minis, which are stereo themselves. What I wanna achieve is assigning each speaker for a particular channel (say, Speaker A for Right Channel & Speaker B for the left one). macOS is pretty easy for this with MIDI setup which allows users to mute either channels of each speaker. I cannot do this on Windows 10, even after installing third-party apps like Voicemeeter, which is a very professional yet complicated virtual mixer, let alone the native Stereo Mix app on Windows. The problem is they only duplicate exactly what is to be sent to Speaker A to Speaker B. Can anyone help? Thank you a lot if this issue can be addressed!
Running School DVDs on Windows 10 Computers
I have a number of school lectures on DVDs that I need to play. I can run them on my Sony Blue-ray Player without any problems, but need another way to watch them too. I have several Windows 10 PCs (desktop PCs and a laptop), but have not been able to get them to run on these platforms. I have installed several highly rated DVD apps from the Microsoft Store, including the Windows DVD Player, but none of these will allow me to play the school DVDs. I have been wrestling with this problem for several days and have run out of places to look for solutions. Anybody?

Having Bluetooth issues :(! Anyone else?
After the last windows update two of my Bluetooth headsets will no longer connect to my computer. We are also having issues on a brand new laptop that we bought and a new Bluetooth mouse not connecting as well. On my laptop I went through all of the fixes and I even preformed a clean install on my laptop and no affect. I reached out to Microsoft on Feedback hub and this is the message I received. "TL:DR; Thanks for reporting this problem to us; we're working on it. Try the troubleshooter (if you haven't already) http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=785321 This feedback (audio doesn't work) is the top issue we are tracking, and we're focusing a lot of effort on trying to fix it. One of the challenges with audio on Windows is it is a complex system with a lot of moving parts; there are a lot of things that can break. Depending on what breaks, different things might happen. You might get an error message; there might be a crash; things might get stuck; or you might even be in a situation where everything LOOKS like it's working, but yet no audio comes out. There's a multitude of different things we're looking at, finding problems with, coming up with fixes for, coming with workarounds for, doing preventive maintenance on, etc. – but this type of issue often doesn't have a simple fix. While we continue to work on this, we'll be keeping an eye on this feedback and your comments, to see if we're doing a good job. In the meantime, here are some of the specific things we're working on:" Plus some other B.S. on how to update drivers and turning on bluetooth which I had already done multiple times. Don't launch things until you know it works. My next computer will be a Mac.
Microsoft’ priorities –cosmetic change or neglecting faults
There used to be a car manufacturer in the UK called British Leyland, which was widely alleged to leave the reliability testing of new models to those customers who were foolish enough to buy them. Needless to say, its cars were full of faults and, unsurprisingly, the company went out of business. Microsoft seems to be heading down the same road. The latest Windows 10 Features Update 2004 apparently offers 16 new features. But it has also caused major problems for Windows users. These have been known since at least May, and many are unresolved, but this Update is still not labelled as a Beta version and users are being encouraged to take the Update without any warning that it is still full of problems. In my case, it has totally f**ked up my system. I cannot get any sound out of my audio system (Realtek in a Dell XPS 8930), and there is nothing in the troubleshooter, the support system or community forum which provides any clear and explicit guidance about how to resolve this. This approach to user support seems to typify Microsoft’s casual attitude to users of its systems. When Edge was introduced, it was an alleged improvement on Internet Explorer. It claimed to have many new features, but it also omitted some useful ones that had been part of IE, making some processes such as downloading and saving a copy of a pdf more complicated and time-consuming for users. And its handling of Favourites was and remains a disaster. What can we expect from the promised new Chromium-based version? Another shit-show? Office is suffering from the same pattern - producing continual unnecessary superficial cosmetic changes while reported faults are ignored. If the managers can't get the priorities right, and/or the programmers can’t cope with the complexity of what they are being asked to produce, isn’t it time for some substantial changes in the company’s personnel?

I have the same problem. After having downloaded the WIndows 10 20h2 update, I lost all audio on my HP Envy laptop. The hardware isn't even detected by the system. I spoke to HP and the problem was resolved by uninstalling the update and updating the graphics driver. HP stressed it was this rather than the audio driver.
