Fujitsu AMILO La1703 Sound problem with windows 10

by Vaakum / March 6, 2016 8:29 AM PST


I am currently trying to fix a sound problem for Fujitsu AMILO La1703. The problem started when I installed windows 10 from windows vista.
Things i have tried:
Hard Restart
Downloading audio driver from Realtek site
Uninstalled audio driver and restarted for windows update(driver)
Tried to update audio driver from device manager
Tried using headphones (Windows wont detect headphones). I can hear sounds from that laptop over teamviewer.

Only Speakers are shown in sound panel as default device (High Definition Audio Device). The problem seems to be not driver problem in my opinion, because when i press test the green bar jumps up and down, but laptop speakers are not working. They used to work with windows vista. Should I go back to windows vista?

To visit the laptop maker's site for drivers. I'd try the Windows 7 or 8 drivers if there are none for 10.

And if there is no driver then time to replace the sound card. For laptops I use USB cards, headphones and speakers. Example follows.

Ask if it works on 10 but so far I have yet to find drivers for this one.

That gave me a slim clue as to the chipset.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
