Having no sound on your computer can be frustrating, especially when you are trying to listen to music or watch a video. If you own an Audigy 2 Zs sound card and recently upgraded to Windows 10, you may have experienced this issue. Don’t worry, we have some solutions that might help you resolve this problem.
Check Audio Settings
The first thing you should do is to check your audio settings. Right-click on the volume icon in the taskbar and select “Playback devices.” Make sure that your Audigy 2 Zs sound card is set as the default playback device. Also, check the volume level and make sure it’s not muted or turned all the way down.
Update Sound Card Drivers
If your sound card drivers are outdated, it could cause no sound issues. To update your drivers, go to the Creative website and download the latest drivers for your Audigy 2 Zs sound card. Once downloaded, run the installer and follow the instructions. After the installation is complete, restart your computer and check if the sound is working.
Disable Audio Enhancements
Windows 10 comes with audio enhancements that can cause problems with your sound card. To disable them, go to the “Sound” settings and select your Audigy 2 Zs sound card. Click on “Properties” and then go to the “Enhancements” tab. Check the box that says “Disable all enhancements” and click “Apply” and “OK.”
Check Hardware Connections
If none of the above solutions work, it’s possible that there’s a problem with your hardware connections. Check that your sound card is properly inserted into your computer and that all cables are securely connected. You may also want to try plugging your speakers or headphones into a different audio jack to see if that makes a difference.
If you’re still experiencing no sound issues with your Audigy 2 Zs sound card on Windows 10, try contacting Creative support or seeking help from a professional computer technician. Hopefully, one of the solutions above has helped you resolve the issue and you can enjoy your music and videos again.
