Microphone & Speaker Issue

HP Recommended

Omen by HP 15-dc0xxx

Windows 10 home.

OS 19041.508


The microphone continues to cut out fully during chats like "Meet, Cisco, and Skype".

I'll be talking, and it will cut out in the middle of saying something,

or even if I'm just waiting with the mic on and not saying anything.

If I use HP Audio Switch, and turn it off, then on again it works. 

But its multiple times within five minutes, so it makes meetings imposable.


The speaker, when playing music, will suddenly reduce to 20-30% total volume.

All volume control displays still show 100% volume.

The only way I have found to correct it is to reboot the computer. 


For both issues, I've reinstalled my drivers and checked for all updates are up to date.

Thanks for any advice.
