I have an Asus UX410UQK, I run Windows 10. I use a program to enhance the bass and overall audio called DFX, it makes a huge difference. However, there seems to be a built in power management mechanism on this laptop model that powers down the sound card when no sound is playing. The amplification from the DFX program creates an annoying "pop" sound whenever I play a file or watch Youtube as the sound card awakens. Without DFX, this popping does not occur, but I am certain the power management system works silently. I have a work around for this, I use "Listen to Device" under microphone options, it works, it stops the popping, but it squanders the battery more quickly. My sound driver right now is Conexant SmartAudio HD. I read that there is a registry edit for the RealTek driver to stop its power management system, is there something similar for Conexant? Is there a way to stop this torture? I tried reinstalling Windows 10, reinstalling drivers and so on, I need a nifty solution.
Anyone chime in would be much appreciated!
