HP All In One 24 (Touch) xa0xxx having all sorts of Audio/Video/startup problems

HP Recommended
HP All In One 24 (Touch) xa0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I'm having a few issues with my desktop. I have an HP All In One 24 (Touch) xa0xxx Intel Core i5-8400T CPU @ 1.70 GHZ and use Windows 10 Home 64 bit.

 

When playing audio or video from windows media player, Groove Music, Movies and TV stock app, the apps lock up and crash, or the song will be stuck at 0:00 and not play at all. Sometimes the song or video will work and then a couple minutes through the audio will cut out but the song/video will continue to play. Also with Youtube the video will show loading and you'll see the rotating circle in the middle of the video but it will time out and say in the middle of the video screen "If playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device". Sometimes when restarting the device youtube and media/audio players will work for a video or two and then the problems will persist with audio cutting out or media players crashing.

 

Also, when restarting my desktop I will get a black screen and be forced to hold the power button to shut down and restart my computer which gives me the "computer didn't restart correctly" screen. My computer has been very buggy in the last week and has been crashing whenever I try to run programs. Apps and internet browsers crash frequently as well.

Sometimes on startup my media players will not detect an audio device and will display "The Audio Service Is Not Running" notification.

 

I've uninstalled and reinstalled audio/display/video drivers using device manager, by clicking the look for hardware changes tab as well as using the audio/video/display troubleshooter which says that everything is up to date and working.  I've also made sure windows is up to date as well as going to advanced and making sure there's no other updates from windows security as well as the windows store. I've attempted to reset the BIOS using f10 key at startup but when looking at the instructions there's no file or power tab to reset through the BIOS setup utility so i'm assuming I have a different version of the setup utility from what the instructions recommend. 

 

Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

I've tried updating from Windows Update screen as well as HP Support and neither fixed the problems.

Try testing the hardware using these steps -

 

1. Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
2. Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
3. On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click System Tests.
4. Click Extensive Test.

 

if the hardware is fine, back-up the data and try re-installing the operating system - HP Consumer PCs - Using the HP Cloud Recovery Tool
