    Hi Kyoki,

    Welcome to the Forum.


    Can you confirm which version of Windows 10 you are using please.

    Type winver in your search box and press Enter to see.


    So far as the Volume icon with a Red X:
    • right-click on Start
    • Select Device Manager
    • Expand Sound, Video and game controllers
    Check whether a yellow triangle is next to your sound card. You may simply need to right-click it and choose Enable or alternately, choose update driver

    It would help if you let us know what is displayed when you expand Sound, video and game controllers too so we can ascertain what you have for current settings. For example if you see listed there High Definition Audio Device that is a default Microsoft users in lieu of IDT Codecs which for some users no longer works properly in Windows 10 and thus they are forced to use this Default, which sometimes you need to enable when starting computer before opening a browser to get your speakers working.​


    For the Network icon:
    • right-click on Taskbar
    • Select Taskbar settings
    • Scroll down and select Turn system icons on or off
    • Turn on Network
    I imagine there will be some more to do to get your OS running as expected, so the above is just a starter.

    As I said, if you can let us know what Windows 10 version you are using, and more about your computer details, like brand, model number, and sound card / chipset being used that would help us help you.


    Regards,

    OK, well if you are not receiving the Creator update yet, there still ought to be an update that will take you to Build 14393.1066 or 14393.1083 which may help resolve some of these issue.

    Can you confirm what driver is being used for your Speaker. Also, is this a headset, or external speakers?

    A stand-alone update can be downloaded here if its not showing in your Windows update:

    Via Device Manager, you could open the properties of the Realtek drivers by:
    • right-clicking and choosing properties > Drivers tab
    • Select Uninstall device
    • In the pop up window that appears make sure the check box is not checked and click Uninstall button
    • Restart computer which ought to redetect device and install again to see whether that resolves the audio issues.

    Or if you prefer not to do that then in your Search box type Find and fix audio and select Find and fix audio play back problems then run that tool.


    For the network in your search box type Identify and repair network problems and run that tool

    If you have sufficient space on a flash drive, yes you could download and create a boot disk to install the update, or download the file and copy to other computer: however, you really need the Network running for the update to work properly as it will check online for anything needed during this process so may fail if the network is down.

    Where are you getting the realtek driver from? Letting system search online for it, or are you attempting to install one you all ready have on computer?
