    Volume Changing by Itself

    What the heck is going on with the volume in Windows 10? Randomly, after unpausing the sound, the sound will be incredibly loud. As soon as I adjust the volume (even just pressing the sound increase or decrease button once) the sound volume goes back to being as loud as it should be. It is extremely frustrating when I pause and unpause and then cant hear because I am now deaf. Does anyone have a fix for this?

    Same here, seems to be an issue with the Realtek Audio Driver. It's super annoying, I've been trying to find a fix for the past month with no luck.

    Has been asked in another thread. The solution is to uninstall the audio driver, restart and reinstall it again. Prefer installing the latest Realtek driver directly from Realtek's site. Do not rely on Windows Update!
