I'm having problems with the audio in my Mid-2012 Macbook Pro running with Bootcamp Windows 10. There's no sound coming from the internal speakers, and the audio port lights red.

In OSX, I managed to fix this problem by holding a Volume key and disconnecting the headphone jack, and miraculously, it works!

The problem still remains in Bootcamp Windows 10. How can this problem be fixed?

I installed Windows 10 on my Macbook using Bootcamp Assistant on OSX.

I finally found a way to solve this issue:

First in OSX, I installed the "Latest Windows support software from Apple" on a USB flash drive via Utilities -> Boot Camp Assistant.

Then in Windows, I reinstalled the missing audio driver using the BootCamp.msi installation file located in WindowsSupport/BootCamp/Drivers/Apple in said USB flash drive.

Internal speakers now work normally again, and the audio port no longer lights red!
