Hello everyone. It's been a while since I've been on this forum, but I should probably post an update. It's been some time since I did this, but I reverted back to Windows 7. The problem still persisted, so I just did a straight up factory reset on Windows 7 and now after updating drivers, BIOS and everything the problem is gone (I could not do this on Windows 10 because there were no HP drivers for Windows 10 for my computer). I will be on Windows 7 now.

hey i'm glad that a Factory Reset worked for you.
If HP or Microsoft doesn't Fix the sound issue soon (before the free upgrade runs out somewhere in July 2016) i'll end up doing the same think.
But for right now my Temporary Solution works so i'm OK with unchecking a box in order to have Stereo Sound.

Hey. I am having a headache over reading all this.
Here is my problem.
I had Windows 7, upgraded to 10.
Didnt have any sound.
Went to HP updated my driver to 8.1 Driver.
Sound works. I'm not into the beats audio thing, but I am not sure I did it right?
My original driver was IDT High Defintion Audio CODEC.
Now its the same.
I have changed the settings to 24 bit, 192000 HZ ( Studio Quality) and unchecked the "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device"
Does that sound fine? I am worried sound won't stay? Should I switch back to Windows 8.1?
I've also read that IDT doesn't make drivers anymore, Will there ever be a good updated driver for my computer.
Computer: HP Envy TS m6 Sleekbook K025dx

ReconLegend Says: If 24 bit, 192000 HZ ( Studio Quality) was the same setting that was on Windows 7 then you should have any issues.
As for un checking "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device" i tried that as well but i didn't notice any advantage or disadvantage when doing that if i was you i would leave it checked.

ReconLegend Says: Yes that's fine. Wait i thought you Upgraded from Windows 7 ? anyway Switch back if your sound doesn't sound great like it did in windows 7 and you've tried all the fixes i listed and any others you can find out there on the HP Forums or Microsoft Community Forums.

ReconLegend Says: Well i had no idea about that thanks for letting me know care to share where you read about that ?
Hopefully there will be good updated drivers from HP soon but if IDT doesn't make drivers anymore i guess that won't happen.

When will this sorry story end? I just want a "x2" with win 10 that works. I have been waiting since last year to buy a new PC! I'm still using an Acer 10.1 netbook running XP. Seems HP will never get it's act together. And now they will split into two companies in Nov. Sure hope there will be some good news soon. I like HP products, however, I can not wait forever.
