Default Windows 10 update.

This is weird. Before any new updates my speakers on my computer did not work. The speaker symbol on the screen was slashed through.

Ok then one of the recent updates the speaker began to work and no slash mark. I could even adjust the speaker settings.

No some other update nit the speaker is not working with the slash mark is back.

What could cause this?

Default Re: Windows 10 update.

Could be random Windows generic drivers.

If so, use the official sound drivers (download them separately) and Windows Update won't update it with the generic drivers. Some manufacturers do provide Windows with their official drivers, but if that's the case here, sound should work with you unless there's a physical problem with the sound hardware.
