Key Takeaways

  • Verify that your audio isn't muted in Windows, that any physical mute switches aren't enabled, and check app settings for audio issues.
  • Make sure the correct audio device is selected as the output device, either through the taskbar or Control Panel.
  • Try running the Windows Audio Troubleshooter, rebooting audio services, disabling audio enhancements, and changing the audio format. If all else fails, update or reinstall your audio driver, or perform a system restore.
