    Sound goes dead when playing games

    Hey all,

    I'm new to this forum, so I'm sorry if my post doesn't have the correct format.

    Now for the problem, I have Realtek HD Audio for my sound, but since a few windows 10 updates ago, my sound goes dead when playing games (League of legends, WoW aswell). I updated to the newest driver version (22 january 2016) for my audio device, but this didn't solve the problem. I couldn't find others with quite the same kind of problem, so I figured i had to create my own post. Solutions for others with a likewise problem, didn't solve my problem.

    To be more clear on the actual problem: My sounds works fine, but after 5 minuten ingame, it starts with some "white noice" (this is the most accurate translation i could find, basically the quality becomes really bad and its starts becoming quieter), and after a minute or so, the sound goes totally off. Sometime it comes back (with bad quality) during the game, sometimes it doesn't. After a few minutes when finishing the game, the sound comes back totally fine like nothing happened.

    It isn't only the sound of the game itself, all other sounds stop working (like radio on google chrome). When i look at playback devices, it acts as if it plays the sounds correctly (the green beams keep on moving).

    Thanks in advance,
