    No sound after latest updates


    Since the latest round of updates my laptop has no sound & the sound diagnostics seems to think I have no speakers plugged in!

    Looking at the properties of my sound card - it seems to have been updated on 16/8 when I switched my laptop on following the updates.

    Anyone had the same problem or got any ideas which of the updates I need to uninstall.

    Many thanks

    You could also select a system restore point prior to when you installed the drivers.
    Could you post a screenshot or list of the updates you installed on the 16th.

    I would also suggest downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer's website. I have two separate Win 8.1 systems which have issues updating drivers through Windows Update (one system has sound driver issues, the other has graphics card issues). The devices get messed up every time the drivers are updated through Windows Update but are fine again after I download the latest driver directly from the manufacturer and overwrite the whatever Windows Update did.
