Example: Spectre x360 aw0116na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Whenever I play videos, the audio gradually gets ahead of the video.  This happens whether I am watching on Chrome or edge browsers.

 

I have updated windows to the most recent version, and have also updated the BIOS, audio and video drivers to the most recent ones which are available for my system on the HP website.

 

I have run audio troubleshooter, have tried turning off audio enhancements and hardware acceleration and have tried turning off exclusive mode and changing the audio quality to DVD quality, none of which has made a difference.

 

I have only had the laptop for a few days and it has done this right out of the box- not the behaviour I would expect from a brand new laptop.  Help would be gratefully received.

 

Thanks.

@Bendelack,

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that there is audio and video sync issue.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

I recommend you perform a reset on the computer following the steps in the below article and check if it helps.

Hi,

 

I have followed the instructions as suggested and have reset windows, but with no improvement.

 

Of note, it does not happen when I am listening through bluetooth headphones, suggesting to me that it may be a problem with the audio driver, but I have the most up to date version of this.

 

Have you any other suggestions please?

 

Thanks

@Bendelack,

 

I recommend you uninstall the audio driver from the device manager and then download and install the driver from the below link.

Hi, that is no better.  In fact, since my last post, the problem is happening with headphones too.

 

I find it astonishing that a brand new laptop is having this problem.  Watching any sort of media is virtually impossible.

 

Do you know how I can escalate this please?

 

Thanks

Hi, did you find a solution for this? I have the same issue. Thanks!

HP Recommended

Hi, no solution yet.

 

I phoned the help desk. They took a load of info off my computer and I hadn't heard anything after a week. I chased again yesterday and was promised a call back, but still nothing.

 

It is all pretty poor for a premium device and the communication is awful.

I understand your concerns.

 

We are experiencing longer than expected wait times to reach an agent due to the CoViD-19 impact and there might have been issues in you getting the expected resolution on the issue. 

 

If you have the case ID, please contact our phone support once again. They will assist you.

 

Have a nice day!!

Hello,

 

I was having the same issue with my HP Spectre x360 15-df1010na laptop which was annoying for such an expensive laptop.

 

I thank the LORD though, the information in the following post by HP Employee Echo_Lake solved the problem simply, and superbly:-

I hope it works for you too!
