Why External Speakers not working in Windows 10  After Update?

Actually, this problem occurs when you update from the old version of Windows 10 to the latest version. Or if you recently install windows 10 on your pc you may get this problem. This problem occurs because of the driver. For the external speakers, it needs an audio or sound driver. So even updating a driver won’t fix this problem because it needs a special sound driver.

And Realtek is that audio or sound driver. So we install Realtek sound driver and fix this problem.
