x360 - No Audio; Can't Run Tests

HP Recommended
x360 14m-dh0003dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an x360 14m-dh0003dx with the often mentioned issue - No Audio, red 'X', can't load Realtek Audio drivers. I have completely removed all traces of the drivers and software based on the several threads, but still can't get the Realtek package loaded. Any attempts to manually load the drivers results in a bluescreen. I am running Win10 20H2.

 

The major difference for me is any attempts to run the Audio Component Test in UEFI result in "Audio Test Cannot be Run on this System" which also throws no error codes, that's the only message.

 

I am on the latest firmware, latest, BiOS, etc., still no luck. I have also done both a normal restore and cloud restore back to OOB; same issue.

@MrsG85

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.
 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

Run the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics tests to determine whether PC Audio or sound is functioning properly.

HP Hardware Diagnostic image

  • 1. Click on Download button and install the latest HP PC Hardware Diagnostics.

    Download

  • 2. After Installation, select Start from your PC, and then under All Apps, select HP Help and Support, then HP PC Hardware Diagnostics Windows.
  • 3. The app opens to the main menu. Click Component Tests, then Audio to reveal the available tests.
  • 4. Check the test you want to run, and then click the Run Once button. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  • 5. If the hardware test Passed, it indicates there is no Hardware Failure. In case, the test Failed, it will display an error code.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

Not sure if you saw in my original post, but this was already done. There is not an error message but instead I receive:

 

"The audio test can not be run on this system."
