Audio renderer error followed by restart but no sound .

HP Recommended
Pavillion all in one 27 inch
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My one week old 27 inch HP All in One suddenly gave me a renderer error while watching a youtube video, and asked me to restart the video. 

Ever since I have tried everything everyone suggested on the internet, from updating, disabling, enabling, uninstalling drivers, etc. HP Hardware test just fails. BIOS restarting too didn't help. 

No sound.

Would appreciate any help.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

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, here's what you need to do:

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.

 

If the issue with the sound continues, The best way to resolve the issue is by using the HP Guided Troubleshooter:
