 Hi,

 

 So I encounter some sound difficulties on a Toshiba Satellite L750 with Windows 7 x64.

 

 Tested on both BS-Player / Youtube and every time I play something, it goes on normally and then sound stops after few seconds - 1 minute.

 

 I tried uninstalling drivers, re-install latest drivers from the Toshiba website and that didn't fix the issue.

 Currently if I open Device Manager there's two devices under Sound, video and game controllers:

 - Conexant Smart Audio HD

 - Intel ® Display Audio

 

 I thought it was a conflict so I tried also disabling one of them and that still didn't work.

 

 Other thing I notice, if the song goes on in youtube and sound stops, when I open the Sound Settings applet, if I click between Playback and Recording TABS the sound goes back for few seconds and then stops again. I tried disabling Microphone but that didn't fix the problem either.

 

 And last of all, if I connect a headset to the laptop, sound works perfectly without stopping.

 

 Any ideas ? Thanks!

You are not alone. Seems to be a hardware issue with the 700 series.

 Thought so. I asked the user of the laptop and he said he had same problem also on a previous Windows installation.

In the link I provided some had success using an earlier driver version.  Seems to be related to an overheating problem.

For almost a year I have been plagued by the same problem of my microphone level being randomly reset to zero. Literally dozens of people have reported this problem on the Internet, with no real solution, at least not an easy solution. TODAY I FOUND AN EASY SOLUTION THAT REALLY WORKS! Here it is.

These instructions are for the Windows 7 Operating System. Click Start, Control Panel, Sound, Recording. Then, in the list of devices, highlight the name of the microphone you are using. Mine is the Realtek High Definition Audio default device.This also works for a USB microphone. Click Properties, Levels. Set the Microphone level to zero and the Microphone Boost to +30 DB. Click OK, OK. That solved the problem for me, completely and permanently!

My problem turned out to be my Logitech WebCam, the microphone in the webcam was set as the default Microphone.

Once I disabled the microphone in the webcam the problem went away!
