I did a reinstall of Windows 10 on my laptop last week. All went well and the first days I did not run into any problems. Two days ago however, my sound is disabled whenever a sound is played. Here's what happens: when I reboot my laptop I can see the speaker icon in my sys tray with the soundwaves. When I play a sound, I can hear the sound for about 1 second and then the sound is disabled. The speaker icon in the sys tray changes to an icon with no soundwaves but with a cross next to it. Whenever I click on the icon, I can set my audio level and can enable the sound again. But when I play another sound, the problems reoccurs.


I already uninstalled the audio (Realtek HD) driver by uninstalling the Realtek software and uninstalling the driver, and then reinstalling it but to no avail. I also ran the Audio Problem Solver but to no avail either.

Anyone has any suggestions?
