    Version 1909
    Hi, When I play any sound on my laptop it starts out loud and then, within seconds. goes very low. After a while. again for a second. it goes loud and then reverts to low. I have tried running the trouble shooter which does not identify a problem and have also checked to make sure drivers do not need updating. I would really appreciate your help. I may be wrong but I have a feeling that this began after an update if that is possible. Thanks

    :)

    Volume goes to zero and mute.

    Hi William,

    If the volume of your computer automatically mutes, it could be that the audio drivers are corrupted or damaged, or that there are software conflicts occurring within the system. As a first troubleshooting step, we suggest that you run the audio troubleshooter
    and lets Windows find and automatically resolve problems with your audio. Here's how to run the audio troubleshooter:

    • Select the Start button, then type troubleshoot, and select
      Troubleshoot from the list of results. From there, select
      Playing Audio
      > Run the troubleshooter.

    If the troubleshooter does not help resolve the problem with your volume settings, we suggest that you check Device Manager and update your sound card drivers. Updating would replace any corrupted or damaged components of the audio driver. Here's how to
    update your audio drivers through Device Manager:

    • Open the Start button, then type device manager, and select
      Device Manager from the search results.
    • Under Sound, video and game controllers, right-click your sound card driver, then select
      Update Driver.
    • Select Search automatically search for updated driver software.
    If Windows doesn't find a new driver, you may look for one on the device manufacturer's website and follow their instructions on how to install their driver.

    If the above steps doesn't resolve the problem, feel free to post back to us.
