How to fix Resident Evil 4 Remake No Sound or Audio Stutter issues
Here are some quick tips to help improve the RE4 Remake with no sound or Audio bugs.
Select the Proper Audio Output
There are a lot of times when the primary output switches automatically when plugging in a new audio controller o second audio device. In that case, you might have this no-sound issue; to fix that, follow these steps.
- There will be a speaker icon in the lower right corner of the screen (on the system tray) that you need to right-click.
- That will open up the Sound Settings.
- Select the proper output device from under the Sound Tab you intend to use.
- Click Ok and Exit.
- Restart the game, and you should have the audio output now.
Use Wired Headphones with a 3.5mm Jack instead of Wireless Headphones
Try using a pair of wired headphones with a 3.5mm jack rather than a wireless one. Remember that there are two different types of Gaming Headphones. Use the one with a 3.5mm jack, then rerun the game. I had the same issue using my HyperX Cloud Stinger Wireless Gaming Headphones. I disconnected it and plugged in my MSI Wired Gaming Headphones, and my Audio issues disappeared. Furthermore, I hope the developers fix these issues in the upcoming patches.
We also have reports of people having issues with USB Powered Headphones, and the best way to avoid problems right now is by using a headphone with a 3.5mm jack.
Change the Playback Device Format
You can also have sound issues if you don’t have the game audio routed through the Native Windows Settings. You can avoid this issue by following these quick steps.
- Right-click on the Speaker icon on the System Tray.
- Select Playback Device from Sounds.
- Right-Click on the Properties and go to the Advanced Tab option.
- Change the format from 48000Hz 16bit (DVD Quality) to 96000Hz 24Bit as the output.
Disable Spatial or Windows Sonic
Disable any Windows Sonic or Spatial Sound, as they are buggy on Windows.
Enable Audio Enhancements
Enable all the audio enhancements to fix all the audio-related issues because sometimes disabling them leads to sound and audio loss. Follow these methods to enable them.
- Get to the Sound Settings and select the Playback Tab.
- Right-click on the Playback Devices.
- Click on the Enhancements after selecting Properties.
Update the Audio Drivers
If nothing seems to be working for you, then updating the drivers might help. But remember, alot of the websites will tell you to reinstall audio drivers, but that is not the case. If you are having issues in all the games, then it is only recommended to do that. If all other games or apps do not have audio problems, you do not need to worry about updating or reinstalling the drivers.
However, if you still think you should try updating the drivers once, visit your Motherboard manufacturer’s website and download the latest and official audio drivers. But remember, do not download any essential drivers from any 3rd party random websites.
