  1. Videos and Audio starting on their own while paused -- help!


    Hello,


    Please redirect me if I am not posting in the right area!


    All paused media restart on their own after about 30 seconds whether the page is up or minimized. This happens on Edge and Chrome but *not* Mozilla. It also happens on paused videos as well as audio streams like Spotify. I have to close the tabs or navigate away to get them to stop.




    I have tried updating audio and display drivers but that didn't help or it says I have the most up to date/best one already --- but should I uninstall some and reinstall?


    I tried to find my issue already discussed but no luck so far.


    I think it started happening a month or so ago but I am unsure @ which update.


    Thanks!




    OS: Windows 10 Home vers. 2004 / OS Build 19041.450

    Audio and video pauses automatically

    Audio and video pause automatically (and sometimes pause and play) only when I use an internal (Youtube, google) or 3rd party software (windows media player, VLC, films &TVs ).
    1. It happens only when I am playing a video or audio.
    2. No virus (after scan)
    3. Since the spacebar key is usually associated with play & pause, I tried typing something in MS word. I did not see any auto space being generated between 2 letters. (tested for 5 mins)
    4. Autoplay and pause (sometimes just pause) occur maybe after 20 seconds. (it is random)
    5. I can actually see the virtual pause and play button is toggled. (no other error message is shown, it happens as if I am physically pressing the spacebar key.

    6. issues in Windows 10

    7. the window also very lag when it happening

    8. Driver issues? Which driver is it? Any suggestions or experiences? Please share your thoughts.
