Microsoft makes new updates to its Windows 10 work like a clock to add new features and fix bugs. However, the company does not maintain a good track-record in releasing stable, non-problematic updates for its users. This problem of releasing problematic updates has increased over the years. Now the company often takes months to fix problems initiated through small updates. According to a new report, the company has made another problematic update in recent times.
Windows 10 update problem and fix
According to a report by Blapping Computer, Microsoft has broken a key function in one of its recent cumulative updates. Digging deeper, the report revealed that Windows 10 devices will stop connecting to Bluetooth speakers after receiving the KB4505903 update. The company initially released the update on July 26, 2019. Windows 10 users will notice a “Microsoft Bluetooth A2DP Source” entry with a yellow exclamation mark icon. This new entry is located under the “Sound, Video and Game Controller” node in “Device Manager”. The exclamation mark indicates that there is some problem with the device.
Microsoft has also posted a support article about the update to help users experiencing the problem. The support article indicates that users will encounter one of the following issues. Either Windows 10-powered computer cannot connect to a Bluetooth speaker. Users can connect to a Bluetooth speaker but the audio output is poor or the audio is played using an internal speaker. It is worth noting that this is not the first Bluetooth-related issue that users have faced in recent months.
In addition, Microsoft has also posted a possible solution to fix the problem. According to the solution, Windows 10 users are required to use the internal system file checker (SFC.exe). Advanced users and IT administrators use this tool to repair any corrupt or missing system files. To begin with, users need to open a command prompt window with administrative privileges. Once in the window, users have to type “sfc / scannow” without quotes and wait for the operation to complete. The window will also ask users to restart the system after the operation.
