I seem to be having a bizarre issue with my laptop: my audio disappears without rhyme or reason, then returns back after a while. There doesn't appear to be anything that triggers it: once it seemed to disappear when I went to an online meeting and enabled using my microphone, but then in other instances I may play and pause a video and when I play again the audio is gone.
Troubleshooting brings up nothing, and all in all my computer seems to treat my problem as, "Everything is working as it should be".
I installed the latest BIOS update, but saw no change - the only thing that seems to have helped is if I disable and then enable the speaker again from "Manage sound devices". I have also tried to restart the computer, which seems to work - but I'd rather not restart computer every 15 minutes.
Any idea on what is going on?
