No sound in my new game

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have installed a new game named as Need For Speed Rivals. It's a very good game but the problem I am facing with this game is worsening it and troubling me. I have a perfect and working sound card and all the sound settings are fine. When I play this game no sound is heard and the in game sound is also working fine. Similarly, I can play music and other games but not of this game. Is it because of some virus? Helpers are welcomed.

You are saying that your sound settings are fine & it happens only when you start the game, so the problem is not with your sound card. Now there are two reasons for this to happen: first one is that the anti-virus is creating problem for this game. You can try playing this game in "Do not disturb mode" or "Gaming Mode" of you anti-virus. Another way is fixing the bug of this game. To do so, you can update this game from the manufacturer website to a newer version.

Happy to support you!

  • First of all check whether you have properly activated the game audio settings.


  • Secondly, it can be an issue with Microsoft DirectX, if your game is utilizing DirectX.


  • Check whether the game requires sound cards settings & they are set properly by opening device manager or start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system information.


  • Also try switching off hardware acceleration for sound.

Control panel > double click on Sound & Audio Devices > audio tab > click advanced on sound playback area > performance > deactivate hardware acceleration slider 


  • Further, install the new updates of the game, if available.
