    Windows 10 system sounds are not working. It is set to windows default and I can test the sounds fine. Other sounds are working. Any ideas? :(

    It's not muted. Been trying to figure this out all day. :D

    Did you either update or re-install the audio drivers?

    Do you mean you have sound but that the os is just not making any system sounds like dings etc?

    When I got to windows 10 desktop it installed Realtek HD audio manager. How can I reinstall them? Yes, only system sounds are not working.

    Have you ever used a Custom sound to replace the Windows default sounds? The system sounds are related to the Desktop background.

    I suppose when you say they are not muted, the System Sounds volume is equal to the Speaker volume in the Volume Mixer?

    Ok, So I just made a new account on the computer and the system sounds are working. I went back to my account and they are still broken. Has to be a way to fix this. :(

    Nope, no custom sounds.

    Try this driver download from Realtek. If it doesn't work try rolling back the drivers
    Realtek

    Did not work. No rollback options. I will just make another user or do a clean install. :(

    • Press WinKey + i
    • In the "Find a setting" box type sound, select sound (With speaker icon)
    • Make sure the proper audio device is set to Default Device
    If you have multiple "Speakers" device try changing the default by right clicking and select "Set to Default"

    Yeah, I have been trying for hours. I made a new account. The sounds are working there. I tried to export the registry and add it to my account. Still didn't work. Very lame.
