Audio has stopped working

HP Recommended
HP Spectre x360 Convertible
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Audio has completely stopped working on HP Spectre x360 today.  Looked up how to uninstall and reinstall audio drivers and did that, already did audio check through HP Support Assistant. Have shut down, started up several times.  Did not recently update anything before this happened. Worked fine yesterday. Don't know what else to do.

thanks for your help.

@amfd Have you attempted to update the BIOS, Video card & Audio drivers to resolve this issue?

If not, here's the link to download and install the above updates: Click here

 

While you respond to that, please follow the below sequential steps as recommended by HP:

Step 1: Right-click on the Start button in the taskbar area and then click Device Manager to open the same.

Step 2: In the Device Manager, expand Sound, video and game controllers.

Step 3: You should now see your audio driver name. Most likely you have Realtek High Definition Audio, Right-click on it and then click Uninstall device option.

Step 4: You will now get the following confirmation dialog. Select Delete the driver software for this device checkbox and then Yes button when you see the confirmation dialog to go ahead and uninstall the device driver.

Restart your PC once & it should auto-reinstall a working driver.
