Audio synchronization

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Laptop 15-ck0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

The synchronization of the headphones, connected to the audio jack, with videos and music files does not take place immediately after opening them but 2-3 seconds later.

Hi @Ema6

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.

  • Do you have this issue while playing audio on speakers?
  • Have you tried playing media on different players and check if the issue persists?
  • Also, check with alternate earphones if available?

Let us try these steps to resolve this issue:

  • If this issue started recently then please perform a Microsoft System Restore to roll back the laptop to a previous date when everything worked as expected. System restore will not delete any data. 
  • If the audio and video are still not in sync then let us uninstall and reinstall the audio drivers by following the below steps.
  • In Windows, search for and open Device Manager.

  • Select Device Manager in the menu.

Device Manager

  • Expand Sound, video, and game controllers. Right-click on each option inside it and select uninstall. 
  • Later please download and install the drivers from this link for the audio:

I suggest you update both your video card and the sound card from the Official HP websites for Software and drivers: Click here

Next, Try using the VLC media player (free download available here) or any other media player of your choice apart from the one currently in use and let me know if there's a difference.

Hi, I have already tried to proceed with the solution proposed by "Kumar0307", but the complication persists. The real problem is that there is no audio when opening a video or song for the first 2 seconds, only after you hear the sound; also, from the HP website for software and drivers, the option to update the video card and sound card is not available.
