Can't hear sound effects consistently


#1

Since right before Patch 1.40, I have been unable to hear sound effects consistently - when I’m getting hit such as by symmetra turrets, ults on both the enemy team or my team (or I’ll hear the first second of the ult and it cuts out), certain abilities, etc.

I saw previous posts which were not resolved by reinstall. One solution worked temporarily by deleting the settings_v0 file but problems have started up again. Please help.

Hey, RossBoss!

This sounds like the issue called out in the thread here:

The resolution will require a future Windows 10 update: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4515384/windows-10-update-kb4515384

Microsoft did offer some workarounds in the link above.

Thank you, I’ll give this a try! Figured it was a Windows update :confused:
