Windows 11 all audio inputs failure

This might have been reported before but I have just had a situation where neither line inputs or microphone worked. In audacity this produced a device error and in windows there was just no signal. After trying different cables and input sockets I found that the Realtek drivers needed updating and everything was back to normal. The new driver version in my case was 6.0.9225.1

Most likely the windows updates to version 22H2 caused this but I can’t be sure because I seldom use the analogue inputs.

Thanks for your report. Whenever you unplug and/or plugin a USB device you need to do Transport > Rescan Audio Devices so that Audacity is made aware of the change.
