I have a sound issue with my laptop (Windows 8) and I simply can't work out what's causing it.
Essentially I keep losing the sound completely from every application, and this includes the general Windows beeps etc, although all it takes to get it back is a restart.
What causes the sound to drop is not clear at all, and it seems to do it at random, although when trying to watch Netflix when the sound has gone it says that there is an error with Microsoft Silverlight - althought as far as I'm aware Silverlight is only used for internet apps and so shouldn't effect everything else?
Regardless, I reinstalled Silverlight but this didn't help.
Not 100% sure what my sound card is, though the Device Manager lists a few things:
Sound, Video and Game Controllers:
-IDT High Definition Audio CODEC;
-Intel Display Audio
Audio inputs and outputs:
- Internal Microphone Array (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC);
- Speakers / HP (IDT High Definition Audio Codec);
- Stero Mix (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC)
I looked for updates for each of these things but there were none. Haven't tried reinstalling the drivers mind you.
Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide me!
