    Hi all,

    It seems as of today , the problem is fixed for me.
    I've tested this thoroughly.

    And I haven't done anything recently...
    I haven't installed or updated any system drivers after posting in this thread.

    What was updated today:
    -Windows 10 automatic updates
    -Chrome updated to 46.0.2490.86 m


    So either the general coding of youtube was altered in order to fix this issue
    or the automatic Windows updates did the trick.

    Anyways I'm not experiencing any changes in volume anymore when using the volume slider.


    How about you guys/gals?

    Oops It Did It Again


    About two weeks after I upgraded to Win 10, the problem with the audio spikes on iTunes and YouTube videos returned.
    I fixed it quickly by going to my Device Manager, then to "Sound, video and game controllers," then to Realtek High Definition Audio, then to "Driver," and finally to "Update Driver." Then I click to "search automatically for updated drivers."

    Before updating to Win 10, that always came back with a message saying I already have the most up-to-date driver installed. But this time, it found a new driver, downloaded it and installed it. Then restarted the PC.

    Problem solved, no more audio spikes.

    Just thought this might help anyone else who has had these issues.

    I still have the problem on my asus rog G751!
    And not only for youtube video, for all sounds from all sources, until i tweak the cursor a bit, the song is ****ing high.
    I already updated the realtek driver to the newest verion and chrome is updated too (but the bug is everywhere)

    If some guys still have the problem or find a solution, it could be cool!

    Thank

    There is a utility, Sound Lock, that monitors and audio level and automatically reduces it to a preset level. Download and install it, start some music playing and then set your preferred level. The utility will make sure to suppress any sound that tries to pass this level so you never hear a louder sound again, unless you increase the level yourself. Other posters in this thread with your problem used it successfully. It is not the ideal solution, but works well until you can solve it with updated drivers or otherwise.

    my solution was to not use realtek driver at all, even the newest driver had the same issue.

    i just use generic w10 audio driver now, seems to work well.

    update realtek driver - choose from list - high definition audio driver.

    Thanks for that tip - I've been having this problem with the Realtek driver, and installing the generic driver fixed it - I wasn't using the fancy Realtek features anyway, so it's an ideal fix for me.

    updating the Realtek Driver seems to have fixed the problem for me


    I updated my Realtek driver from
    24/06/2015
    6.0.1.7544
    to
    05/10/2015
    6.0.1.7628

    I have just restarted my Dell laptop and it seems to have fixed the problem
    problem returned 6 months later fixed now in System Notifications

    Solved How to turn off notification sound when headphones are plugged in

    Open Settings – select System – Notifications & Actions – scroll down to Show Notifications from these apps – select Realtek HD Audio Manager (click app do not toggle off on) – Turn toggle off “Play sound when a notification arrives”



    Problem fixed
