I have been experiencing some issues with sound on my computer. It's flickering when I use the computer at the same time and listen to the music most usually on youtube, but sometimes on VLC too.
What I tried to do is to uninstall the audio driver (Realtek) and to install the version that is available on the producer's website (it is a dell xps l 501 laptop).
At the end of the uninstalling process, the install wizzard asks me to reboot, what I do, and when the computer starts up, I can see that it installs a driver for the audio device, but it is not the Realtek driver. The sound works just fine for all programs: browsers, VLC etc.
In the Control Panel there is no Realtek driver or any other audio driver mentioned.
So, my question is: is this normal? Is this some sort of windows integrated driver that gets installed when windows do not find the audio device after the reboot?
I tried to do this several times, and when I uninstalled it for the first time, after the reboot my Mcafee untivirus was disabled and the FFprotection (I suppose this is the right name for it) from windows was disabled as well and I reactivated both of them from the action center.
