    windows 10

    Sound cuts out every few minutes since upgrading to windows 10

    Whenever i'm watching anything in "films and tv" or what was previously windows media player the sound cuts out every minute or so for about 3-4 seconds. I tried watching my shows on a newly downloaded version of VLC and the sound still cuts out. I've tried adjust the Hz in speaker properties but that doesn't work. Please help!!!! i'm really regretting 'upgrading' to windows 10.

    Welcome to the forums, go to device manager( right click start), right click Realtek High Definition and check whether you have the latest driver, if not, update the driver and see whether it fixes the problem.

    it MAY be you have the sound settings set to 5.1 or 7.1 instead of stereo so the system is trying to send certain 'directional' sounds to speakers that don't exist , I had the same issue and that turned out to be my problem.
