Microsoft introduced Windows 11 with build 22H2 a while ago. Luckily, it got blockbuster due to the arrival of updated compatibility features. Windows 11 was initially feature-packed, so adding features was not a big deal. But suddenly, some users are experiencing audio problems with such windows.

Many users believed outdated drivers caused audio problems due to audio problems. So they updated their drivers, but users still encountered the same problem. We came up with a solution after realizing such concerns. Fortunately, we have something that we are about to explain below.

How to fix Audio Problems in Windows 11 22H2?

Windows 11 22H2 is the latest build with a lot of updated features. But recently, many users claimed to be experiencing audio problems with it. Subsequently, Microsoft acknowledged that and posted a working fix on their community page. Even though they are publicly available, they are difficult to find for the average user.

Therefore, we read those official fixes and summarized them so that even a noob could understand what Dublin11, an independent advisor, mentioned on the Microsoft Community Page. So, without further delay, let’s move ahead and get started.

Run the Sound Troubleshooter

There are dedicated troubleshooters in Windows to determine the cause of any issue. Therefore, Sound Troubleshooter is a program through which you can identify issues arising from your PC’s sound. So, first of all, we are trying to fix the issue using Sound Troubleshooter.

  • On your PC, navigate to the taskbar.
  • In the taskbar, look for the sound manager.
  • Then right-click on it and select Properties.
  • After it presents the possible correction options, wait for verification.
  • Next, check the sound device; if it presents a correction option, you can run it. 
  • That’s it. Restart the system and see if the behavior persists.

Uninstall Sound Controller

It is common for sound controllers to lose some critical programming, which results in audio-related issues. In this case, you should check the Sound Controller if the issue persists after Windows 11 22H2 Update. In this case, we are trying to uninstall the Sound controller using the current driver.

  • Simply open the Start Menu, type, and choose Device Manager.
  • After that, select the arrow pointing to Audio Inputs and Outputs.
  • Now right-click on the installed device and click on uninstall.
  • In the last step, restart your computer and check if the issue has been resolved.

Rolling back an installed driver version

If the audio problem persists, we recommend you roll back to the previous driver version. This is because using the same driver version for a long time requires a fresh start. When you roll it, that can happen. But we know many of you don’t know how to do it. For more information, please follow the instructions below.

  • Start by clicking the Start Menu, type, and click Device Manager.
  • Then select the arrow pointing to Audio Inputs and Outputs.
  • Do right-click the installed device and select Properties.
  • After that, click on the Driver tab and see if the Revert option is available; if so, revert it.
  • Lastly, Restart your computer.

With these fixes, we conclude that the audio issue you were experiencing after installing 22H2 on Windows 11 has been resolved. In the same way, we explained everything shortly and simply. If you have any questions, please post them in the comment section below.
