Sound issues since Anniversary Update (v1607)

Windows 10

Asked by: Julien Renard_77


I have some issues since I installed the Anniversary Update (v1607).

I installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update last night, and since then, I don't have sound coming out of my speakers when I'm trying to play a file (movie or MP3) with VLC/WMP, or when I'm on YouTube or anything. The only sound I can have on speakers for now is the test sounds of  the Realtek HD Audio Manager. I still have sound with my headset, that's what I don't understand.

I already updated/uninstall/reinstall my Realtek High Definition Audio driver, nothing worked. I saw on the Internet some people having the same issues, they just had to plug/unplug their headset to fix it, but it didn't work for me.

I tried the contact the support using the W10 application to do so, the first helper I encountered barely tried what I already tried, then he gave my support request to a colleague, that also tried the same thing, and finally tried to fix it by reinstalling W10 with the MediaCreationTool. It didn't fix the issues, and now, I can't even restore to the good old v1511.

Please, someone help me with my issue...

Looking forward for anyone's answer.
