The instructions basically allow the operating system to process sound outputs and inputs from your sound card to the speakers and microphone.
Here’s what Microsoft reveals when it comes to these latest changes:
To safeguard your update experience, we have applied a compatibility hold on Windows 10 devices with affected Conexant or Synaptics audio drivers installed from being offered Windows 10, version 2004 or Windows Server, version 2004 until the driver has been updated.
Is there a resolution for safeguard IDs 25702617 and 25702660?
Windows 10 PCs with affected Conexant or Synaptics audio drivers usually received a stop error with a blue screen. This happens during or after updating to Windows 10, version 2004.
A corrupt driver will eventually stop sound from working. That’s why it’s great to hear that Microsoft partially fixed Windows 10 Conexant audio driver issues.
To be more precise, the problem was resolved for safeguard IDs 25702662 and 25702673. If there are no other safeguards that affect your PC, it can take up to 48 hours before the update to Windows 10, version 2004/version 20H2 is offered.
Moreover, Microsoft and Synaptics are working on a resolution for safeguard IDs 25702617 and 25702660 as well. We expect an update in an upcoming release.
In the meantime, to avoid further issues, you must not manually update using the Update now button. However, you can take a look at this quick guide on how to Conexant HD audio not working in Windows 10.
With these being said, let us know if you’re excited about this fix coming from Microsoft and if you’re ready to enjoy the update to Windows 10, version 2004/20H2 as well.
