Re: Audio distorts after pausing a video

Hey Camper,

 

Good news:  This is not a mechanical issue.  The driver from Microsoft does resolve the problem for most of the models affected.  You can update the driver in device manager.

 

Bad news: If the updated driver doesn't resolve the issue, you will need to wait until the next driver is available from HP.  

 

Make sure the audio device is enabled and then update the audio driver using Device Manager as follows:
  1. In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.
  2. Double-click Sound, video and game controllers.
  3. If a sound device is listed with a down arrow , the device is disabled. Right-click the sound device name and select Enable to re-enable the device.

  4. With the sound device enabled, right-click the sound device and select Update Driver Software.

  5. Click Search automatically for updated driver software.

  6. Windows checks for and installs any updated drivers found. The window displays whether the computer already has the latest available driver or if Windows was able to successfully update the audio driver.
