Windows 10 - No sound from speaker, but the headphones work...

I, like many others, upgraded to windows 10 yesterday and I have to say so far it's great. The big issue I'm having is that I no longer have any sound from my speakers! I use an ASUS N55SL with Realtek HD Audio drivers and they worked perfectly til the upgrade. Oddly the headphones still work so the soundcard is probably fine... HELP!

Hi,

Please go to control panel -> hardware and sound -> sound

In the playback tab ,  Please enable and set your laptop speakers as the default device

The problem described above also concerns me with my asus N55SF. I tried the thing you suggested a few days ago, but speakers are set as default. Actually after few days I noticed that sometimes after turning on my laptop, windows is able to play all system sounds. The catch is that when I try to play some music or video (VLC/BS player, youtube,...), speakers are dead silent since. 

I hope that someone will find solution because this is driving me crazy.

Hey, I'm using Windows 10 Home and just wanted to share something. This other day I turned on loudness equalization to increase the Max Audio Output and the sound just went out. Moreover, I was able to hear the audio from the headphones. So, summing up the scenario:

Audio not coming from main speakers at all but from headphones.

I tried many solutions from the internet but what worked for me:

  1. Open Device Manager
  2. Right-Click on IDT High Definition Audio CODEC or whatever your Sound-Card Driver is.
  3. Uninstall it.
  4. Scan for hardware changes.
  5. Let the system install the sound card and there you have it, sound!

I hope this helps others...

I tried this several times with my realteck driver with no success. But suddenly after like 12th the problem was fixed (after restart ofc). I guess it was some microsoft fix runing on background, I dont know. But now everything is just fine :)

Try using the built-in Windows audio driver:

I have a similar system and the same problem with my ASUS N55SL.

Its Windows 10 not XP and if I rollback all the way back to Windows XP I will have sound... WHY?!!!!

I am losing my mind!
