Hi! guys. Ever ran into that issue where you connect your Laptop to an external display, e.g TV; but AUDIO still comes from your Laptop's speaker. Half of the time a system restart fixes this, but just in case you restart and it doesn't still work, here are quick steps to get it fixed.

I ran into this issue today and here is how I got it fixed. The most probable cause of this is a driver conflict. To get it resolved,

  • Open Device Manager (Windows 10: right click "Start" and click Device Manager or Right Click - My Computer and click Manage then click Device Manager).
  • Among the listed items (Mostly under "System Devices"), there should be an item with a "yellow exclamation mark" as depicted in the image below

  • Right click the item and click uninstall
  • Restart your system or simply right click and refresh.

Some users may have been experiencing flickering issues when playing games. This can be particularly annoying and not occur in every game.

The most probable cause for this flicker is a driver conflict / failure while in use; especially if there is a driver version among your previously installed drivers that works perfectly without flaws.


  • Download  DDU
  • Boot into Safe-Mode.
  • Run DDU and use it to fully uninstall the Nvidia driver. (Uninstalling from Device Manager won't make the cut here.
  • Download and install the latest Nvidia driver available for your graphic card.
  • Restart.
