The Windows 10 Creators Update has been released and aside from the new features and options that it added to the operating system, it also brought some issues. Today we will talk about the Audio Issue that this major Windows 10 update came with and how you can fix it.
In case you are hearing something, then there are high chances that a simple reinstallation of the Beats application can fix the issue. It seems that the Windows 10 Creators Update has uninstalled the Beats application, which has resulted in the poor audio issue.
However, if this doesn’t fix your problem, then there are chances that the problem is related to the Realtek High Definition Audio driver or Dolby Digital 5.1. If this is the issue, then we have some bad news for you, because you will NOT be able to fix it. In this case, you will need to uninstall the update or else, you will not be able to hear any audio sound from your computer until the developers will release a fix for it.
Windows 10 Creators Update: How To Uninstall
If you’ve decided to uninstall the Windows 10 Creators Update to fix your audio issue, then here are the steps that you need to take to do it:
- Go to Settings->Update & Security;
- Select Recovery->Get Started and after that choose to go back to a previous version of Windows;
- Now you will need to choose why you want to roll back and select Next->No Thanks->Next->Next;
- Finally, you will have to click on the “Go Back To An Earlier Build” and this will start the downgrading process;
- Once the downgrade has finished, you will notice that you are back to the previous version of Windows 10 OS and that the audio is working again.
We suggest you to wait a few more weeks until Microsoft will finally announce that it has fixed the audio issue. After that, you can freely upgrade back to Windows 10 Creators Update.
