Running 2.1.1 in Win 10 on a lenovo U430p that I upgraded from Win 8.1. Audacity worked fine on this machine with 8.1.
I ran the offered upgrade to Win 10, and other programs work fine. For example, EverNote can record and playback sound just fine, so my Win 10 seems to have the drivers etc hooked up correctly.
I uninstalled and re-installed Audacity and that didn’t change anything.
Audacity can’t play an MP3 that I import, nor can it play something it recorded. It sounds like maybe there’s a click for each zero crossing or something, because it sounds like an odd buzz of no particular frequency. The level meters seem to work OK, and the sonograph looks like Audacity is hearing what I’m saying, but any playback just comes out as a buzz.
It has been doing this ever since I upgraded a month ago, but I thought I would wait in case an update to Audacity came out and magically (OK, no magic, due to programmers hard work) would fix that issue for me.
Anyone have any ideas? YouTube plays fine, I can watch ESPN, EverNote records and plays as it always has. Stumped.
