What do you get if you plug speakers/headphones into the audio jack on the NUC?
Do you show any devices in Device Manager with errors?
Sorry if this is a basic question, but have you confirmed audio works on the monitor? Have you checked the audio output volume on the monitor?
Can you send a screenshot of your audio output devices (including disabled devices)?
Have you tried more than one HDMI cable?
The sound is working when having headphones. And there are no conflicts in the device manager at all.
I do know that the audio should work, it was working with my previous PC but not anymore now when trying with the NUC.
I have tryed two different HDMI cables and no success. Also one HDMI-DVI-cable.
There are no hardware button on the montitor to change the sound level from there, only in windows.
Picture is with speakers as default now, but I am of course trying to have Dell as default when testing =)
If you right-click on the Intel Display Audio (in the screenshot) and go to properties, then to Levels, what is the level set to? On the Enhancements tab, are enhancements enabled?
The levels is at 100 and I have no enhancements enabled...it sure is strange this!
What's the driver version listed for the Intel Display Audio?
(In Playback Devices, go to Properties. On the General tab, under Controller Information, click Properties, then go to the Drivers tab)
One way to be absolutely sure you're good hardware-wise is to use a live boot Linux image (flash drive). If you boot to a live image and the audio works, you know for sure it's a driver/software issue.
This is the version: 188.8.131.5289
I have no clue on how to use linux. Can I dualboot it? I dont want to remove my windows, or can I just start it from a usb?
Booting to a live Linux stick wouldn't affect your Windows 10 installation. You boot to the disk and it loads a basic desktop environment and standard drivers. It's really just to confirm the hardware is working.
Have you run the Intel driver update utility to confirm all drivers are up to date and working? The driver version you list is current, but it's worth a shot.
You wouldn't get any audio using a DVI adapter since it doesn't carry audio.
Try the driver update utility. I'd be particularly interested in what it shows for the graphics driver.
Driver utility? Do you mean this one?
Intel® ME 9: Management Engine Driver (1.5M) for Intel® NUC
No, not that one. Go to downloadcenter.intel.com and click on the link for automatically updating drivers.
Do you have another HDMI display you can connect, just to see if it gets sound?
I did try a khali (linux) Live usb. I could not get the sound to work from there either so Im guessing its maybe a hardware error then
I did choose the HDMI as output but no sound there at all when testing the speakers. So Im going to buy myself an Asus Xonar U5 to connect my toslink instead.
Many thanks Jason for taking time to help me here!
Always glad to help!
Keep in mind though that just because the live usb didn't work, that doesn't mean it's a hardware problem. Different Linux distros have different drivers, and some may not work without updating. My thinking was that if you DID get sound, you'd know the hardware was ok. But if you didn't get sound, then we'd continue troubleshooting.
If you do find a solution for it, please post it here.
Will do that = )
