I was having issues with my computer audio. It would go either super loud or super quiet with the same level of volume in my computer (volume would be on 25 and the laptop would have a different sound). I was following one of the problems solved instructions about the topic. here is the link to what is recommended to do ( https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/Sound-volume-goes-up-amp-down/m-p/6033383#M82591). So I tried this and now my computer does not have audio at all. the second link of the instructions I followed did not work so I couldn't download what I needed. Can anyone help me out?

@Edde-13 Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support and we appreciate your patience.

That said, 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.
