Windows 11 22H2 has been rolling out since last week to reach as many compatible PCs as possible. Some PCs, however, will need to wait a bit longer before they can take advantage of this update.
We must acknowledge that the road to Windows 11 seemed littered with obstacles, whether due to hardware restrictions or just user rejection. But a year later, Microsoft returned with Windows 11’s first significant update. This update includes some welcome enhancements, even though some of the key features
Most people who have installed the Microsoft update now report that it is mostly stable. Sadly, some Intel computers are currently without this. The reason? is a driver that might result in a compatibility problem.
It appears that users of devices with Intel processors are experiencing an issue. The audio drivers of Intel Smart Sound Technology (SST), which controls music playing and voice commands, are to blame for this issue.
According to Windows Latest, on September 22, Microsoft acknowledged the existence of a hardware compatibility issue with Intel in the official literature. The culprit would be the IntcAudioBus.sys driver (version older than 10.29.0.5152 or 10.30.0.5152).
While awaiting the American company’s response to lift the restriction that Windows 11 22H2 imposes, do not hesitate to update the driver to a newer version provided, of course, that other conditions related to your PC do not prevent the installation of the update.
You can check the “Device Manager” and then choose “Sound, Video and Game Controllers” to see if the SST from Intel is present (or not) and update the driver to see if this hardware compatibility issue impacts your computer.
