Windows 10 update runs into even more issues
Some users are reporting getting no sound after the patch conflicted with Intel audio drivers.
Just one week after Microsoft resumed releasing its October Windows 10 update, it had to hit the brakes again, as some users reported losing sound after updating.
Some users were claiming that after the latest Windows 10 patch, they were no longer getting sound from a monitor or television connected to a PC via HDMI, USB-C or Display Port.
Microsoft was quick to suspend patch roll-out, and even quicker to lay the blame on Intel, saying the chip-maker ‘inadvertently’ released versions of its display driver which “accidentally turned on unsupported features in Windows”.
INTEL says, “We are investigating feedback that in some instances customers who have installed the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809) are experiencing issues with certain versions of Intel Graphics and Display Audio drivers”, “We are working with Microsoft to verify these reports and will share more information when it is available.”
Microsoft has had a lot of trouble with its October update for Windows 10. Prior to this issue with audio drivers, some users reported the patch deleting files from the Documents folder.
