ok, tried that yesterday, but had to cancel after 40 minutes as I had things to do.

How long should it take to " detect problems " ?

Thankyou for your help.

Do you know what Sound Card you are using?

With a recent W10 update my Realtec card driver was not supported and I had to change to Windows one and....bingo!!

I even downloaded the Realtec driver from their website just to double check... no sound!

Thank you very much.

As far as I know it`s Realtek. I haven`t really time to do it today, but I`ll give it a try.

Billy, for quite a long time, in fact so long that I have learnt to live with live with it and I am a former computer consultant, the sound occasionally cuts out. Try turning it up to 20 or 30 with something playing and see if it cuts back in. This usually fixes it for me. Be ready to turn it down if it's suddenly blasts at you. It is a known Windows bug, and on my previous attempts to find a solution I decided it was easier to live with it. I assume you tried the obvious, just turning the computer off and then back on again.

Probably need to see what other sound cards are loaded...

Try this. Go to Device Manager. Find Sound, video and games controllers. Double left click to open. Right click on each entry and choose Uninstall. Shut the computer down and then restart. Windows will then reinstall the drivers.

I have a laptop which runs the "insider" version of Win10. For months now, soon after logging in, it has squawked at me and popped up a message saying "Are you having trouble with audio? Run the audio troubleshooter." Well no, I've just heard the squawk!

Then last week, having hit Mute to kill an annoying ad, I got round to updating the insider version. Sound got disabled, and Mute no longer switched it on. Guess what? I was no longer prompted to run the troubleshooter!

I reinstalled the drivers as suggested by Midase, and all is normal again, complete with "troubleshooter" popups!
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

And thanks to everyone.
