  1. Audio Start Delay After PC Been Idling For A Little While?


    Hello,


    An issue I seem to have always had with my HP x360 windows 10 is that if the PC has been Idling briefly playing no audio, whenever I play an audio file or use a program that generates audio, it cuts off the first 1-2 secs, then stutters in. If I am continuously playing audio I don't get any issues.


    It almost feels as if the audio driver goes to sleep, then when a program produces audio, it has to boot the driver back, losing the first second of audio.


    If I use headphones I can almost hear the output activate and deactivate as there is slight BG noise. If I play a track, the first second does nothing, then output works, and the slight BG noise appears, if the track is stopped, the BG noise continues for about 10secs then cuts off. If no audio is played during the 10 secs the noise is still noticeable, the same delay issue will occur the next time audio is played.


    This isn't just a media player thing as it happens with all applications and even system sounds.


    I use the laptop as a media server on some productions, so it's a bit of an issue.


    Cheers!

    :)

  4. Audio Start Delay After PC Been Idling For A Little While?

    Little to no audio


    Hmm. Is it a problem with the Laptop port itself? Or maybe you just simply have the volume set down on your speaker? Another possibility is that it isn't really compatible with Windows 10 yet. Here, try this when you have your pc connected to the system.

    Step 1: Right-Click the audio button usually found in the bottom right corner or in the drop down/up menu near the clock.
    Step 2: Click "Open Volume Mixer"
    Step 3: Check for stereos and see if the volume is down.

    I doubt you haven't done this but restart the PC with the speakers in and the speakers out.

    If not, try audio troubleshooting.

    Step 1: In the windows search, (press windows logo to get to it) Type in Audio
    Step 2: Click "Manage audio devices"
    Step 3: Right-Click on the speakers connected and click test. That should show if both stereo channels work.
    Step 4: Then, right click again and click "Configure"
    Step 5: Make sure you're in stereo and test again.
    Step 6: Right click on the connected speaker system AGAIN and click properties from the drop down box.
    Step 7: Click on levels in the tab section and check the volume settings.
