Can anyone tell us why? Microsoft just has to send out updates that make things worse? I paid almost 2 thousand bucks for my HP envy 17 inch laptop with Beats audio. Because it was made to be a media machine as well as a powerful long time usable computer. It came with win 8 and jumped to 8.1 and all went well. Then Microsoft desided that I didn't need 4 speakers, nor a finger print reader, amongst other things. So they threw win 10 at us. Taking away my sounds but giving me 2 wimpy cell phone speakers. And not good ones. That you Microsoft. NOT!

If your notebook has the IDT with Beats Audio chip, see if installing this W10 IDT audio driver and restarting the PC gets the sound to work better.
IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio Driver
It worked for my HP 350 G1 notebook, which did not have a W10 IDT audio driver.
For some reason it set the headphone output as the default audio device, so after I restarted the PC, I had no sound at all.
All I had to do was to change the default audio output from the headphone to the PC speakers and the sound worked just like it used to in W7 and W8.1.
