We had a look into this and we have listed some causes below:-

  • Corrupted audio drivers- There might be a chance that the audio drivers were corrupted due to the malware infection that might be infected your computer with the help of third-party software.
  • Conflict of drivers- If your drivers conflict with each other due to certain reasons then you might get issues with the audio system in games or Windows.

Now that we know the causes let’s straight jump into some effective troubleshooting methods that helped users to fix this audio not working issue in Roblox.

Check Roblox Volume From Volume Mixer

The first thing you can do is to check the game volume from the Volume mixer because sometimes the certain application or game’s sound turned off automatically, and this happens a lot in Windows 10 even though I also faced this problem.  

  1. Right-click on the Speaker icon on the bottom right in Taskbar Tray.
  2. Choose the Open Volume mixer option.
  3.  Make sure your game sound is 100%, if it’s muted, then increase the volume of the game.

  2. Click on the dropdown icon to change the audio driver into a working audio driver.
