The computer has normal sound anywhere from 30 seconds to 4 minutes after startup. Then the software basically forces the sound to get insanely quiet.
The maximum volume is quieter than my phone on half volume.
I've tried everything. Of the 4 drivers provided on the official HP driver site, I have installed them a total of 30+ times trying to get this figured our over the past few months. Whenever things seem to be fixed, a windows update will come along and absolutely ruin everything once again.
I have not been able to sustainably get my computer to produce a normal amount of sound output in months now. I have no idea what to do. I know the hardware is capable of producing louder sound windows itself forces it to get quiet.
