I've torn into the speaker case to make sure that no wires or connections were loose, and have made sure that i'm getting clean contact with the speaker wire. I used Unlocker, but it did not show any locks. Device Manger Win key+ X shows no missing drivers for sound. Microsoft Optical Mouse Blue, thought the cable was bad as it seem to fail at certain spots of motion. I have also restored to earlier dates, prior to the latest updates. But at some random point during its use, the sound will get corrupted. Starting about a week ago, I have a new problem with audio on my X1 Carbon running Windows 7.
Then why not have it published here and receive full credit? However, if I do a Restart, the sound returns for that session. It doesn't seem to address intermittent issues, but figured I'd try anyway. Hope this can help others too. Aug 1, 2015 I updated Windows 10 the day after it was released, and all was going fine, until the sound just cut off as I was watching a video. Know a neat tech tip or trick? Windows should reinstall the audio driver automatically. I played back music or other with low volume on the computer and nearly max on the speakers, so I could control the volume from the computer.
I don't know why the Linux install had an issue, it probably hadn't been configured properly and I didn't check into it enough. It turned out that I didn't reinstall the driver for my media card reader that came with the system and I've never used. Many Windows 7 users are having this issue just like you. My original setting was 24 bit, 48,000 and I've changed this to 24 bit 44,100. I don't know if it was doing this before it was stored, or not, as it wasn't me that was using it, but I didn't hear anything from the user about audio problems, so I'm assuming I know. Delete it and post your build.
This whole thing has been a big challenge! I suppose I could continue to trouble shoot, but I'm not on the payroll at Microsoft so I won't be doing them any favors. It is currently running version 1511 10586. I've backed it up, then done a factory restore to the original Toshiba configuration, and it seems like it might be lasting longer on average now, but it still drops sound after a while, and it's still brought back immediately simply by adjusting the volume in the Windows mixer. This is supposed to save power by closing down ports that are only used intermittently. I may look into doing that. I'm still thinking it seems like a software problem, because I don't see how adjusting the volume would somehow reset the hardware to make it work again, but I also don't see how a reinstall wouldn't fix the software problem, if it was that.
If that doesn't help, I suggest going to Accessories, Command Prompt. After updating drivers change the default playback device to Sound Blaster and check if the issue persists. Open Start, enter Device Manager, and select it from the list of results. Failures are not happening on all the systems but on the ones that do have the issue its every 2-4 hours. Restart your device and Windows will attempt to reinstall the default driver automatically.
Sometimes the sound returns on its own for a little while before going out again. When logging into the machines as anyone , by default the sound driver says that there is no audio equipment connected. I have you mixed up with someone else who's having a problem which happens at a set frequency. What is the exact model number for your motherboard? Later I upgraded to a P320 ThinkStation with P32u monitor, and did get the same audio problem. This is a recurring situation. Additional testing should be done by the software engineers and technicians to debunk this issue in lieu of leaving the issue to the community to theory craft a solution. Not cheap, but getting something shipped directly here would no doubt be even more expensive, plus many headaches involved with customs.
Play a music or a video to see if there is sound. Tried it on other computers? I therefore set it back to 'On'. Try it, you might have success with it. This seems to be the only option when there aren't any Power options available from Control Panel. After much frustration, just a few minutes ago I discovered that the speakers were not set to default.
I can upload 10 or more images before it happens. However: the settings in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit are not where you say they are. Mar 6, 2016 I just upgraded to Windows 10 on my Lenovo ThinkPad. Oct 17, 2015 I have three machines with Win10 Pro. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
If anyone else decides to try this please let us know if you have any success, or if you've found another solution that worked. This time I have noticed that setting power management so that the laptop stays at maximum performance even on batteries is also a make-shift solution. In the mean while, I highly discourage buying Microsoft hardware in light of what has occurred. In any event, I don't think those things have anything to do with your problem. This can be after a few minutes, or as little as a few seconds. Cal Well you have read my frustration with above, so I may have a solution. I understand that you are getting intermittent sound issues on Windows 10.
