Windows 7: Strange audio issue

07 Nov 2016   #1

Strange audio issue

I am playing a game called The Division and i am having issues with my audio being blocked by the game even tho i have disabled the options for windows to mute sounds and hardware control. The strange things is that it is the only application on my PC that does this with the audio.

Not sure what kind a info i can give in order for any help to be easyer, but if it is something someone wants just ask and i will give it as soon as i can, thanks for any ideas for what can be the issue with this.

Windows 10 64 bit

I have an option, in my audio, to allow applications to take control of the audio. Perhaps that is the problem?

See my screenshot. It is accessed from Start/Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound panel Playback Section. Highlight your "Speakers" and then click on Properties.

I found something on the net that may help to fix it. It's a set of instructions:

Tom Clancy's The Division no sound fix / no voices / no music - How to fix this issue

Don't download any files that claim that they will fix the issue. Do it manually, yourself, following the directions that they give.
