Hello. I have been a Zoom subscriber for approximately 15 months, and I use the free app. I mainly use my PC to log into meetings approximately 3-4 times per week. I have never had this issue before, and the problem arose this morning right after I logged out of a normal successful Zoom chat. I saw there was a Zoom update available so I clicked on the update. Ever since I downloaded this new update, my PC has been having this issue. I have turned the computer on and off two or three times and even uninstalled the Zoom and then reinstalled it. The problem persists. Here is my information and the problem:
My computer is a HP All-in-One 22-c0. The serial number is 8CC83124ZS. The OS version is 2009. It runs Windows 10.
Ever since I updated the Zoom app this morning, I have been unable to hear anything in my Zoom chat rooms. The participants were fully able to hear me, but I could not hear anyone. I got an error message that reads: "Failed to detect your speaker. Please make sure your speaker is properly connected." I have done nothing on my PC to disconnect my speakers and, since I am not very tech savvy, I do not know how to navigate the screen that allows me to check my audio settings on this computer. I have an important meeting coming up tonight and I desperately need to be able to hear it. If the Zoom update is the problem, I'd like to go back and stay with the earlier version because I have never had this particular problem happen to me before today. Please, please help me!! Thank you for any help you can provide.
