    Audio louder than usual until volume is changed


    Hello, tonight I upgraded to Windows 10 and began encountering a very strange problem with my audio. What happens is when an audio source starts playing sound, the the sound is louder than it should be - the actual volume in Windows does not change, the sound is just louder. It seems to be only the audio from that source that's louder, not any other sounds playing. This has happened when Flash sources like YouTube videos and Twitch streams load, and when I unpause music in foobar2000.

    I can resolve it by simply moving the volume slider in Windows anywhere, then it will begin abiding by Windows's volume setting again. Even moving the volume up a notch will end up making it quieter from what it was. I've been uninstalling and reinstalling drivers all night, does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

    I have the same problem after I downloaded Windows 10. Play media, pause it, wait a bit, resume, volume is way higher than it should but the number is the same. Quickly adjust it back and forth and it fixes it. I updated my sound driver to Realtek 6.0.1.7544 and it didn't fix it either.

    Yep exactly, wait a bit and it jumps in volume. Awesome to know I'm not the only one suffering this.

    I upgraded my Dell XPS 27 to Windows 10 and am also having this exact same problem. Playback starts surprisingly loud and then the moment you call up volume and move slider it drops to normal level. Happens in BBC iPlayer and YouTube, both running through Chrome browser. I hope there will be a fix very soon!

    Seems like the combination of Windows 10 and a certain Realtek sound card is the problem, as I am having the same issue on my DELL XPS One 27 (2720) (like Emmellar).

    Hopefully a future update on either side will fix the issue...

    Hmm, after the first, shall we call it tiny service pack for Windows 10 yesterday, I could have sworn that the audio issue was gone, but after rebooting my PC today, it's back, unfortunately. Too bad... :-(

    Addendum: There were a whole bunch of new drivers on the DELL site for my XPS One 27, all from July 30, so the day after the Windows 10 release. However a new audio driver was not among them. Of course not... ;-)

    I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. I can't find any information on it. I have an ASUS X200M laptop with Windows 10 with the installed Realtek audio drivers.

    I have also experienced these volume spikes with a Creative Recon 3D card (onboard). I think W10 audio subsystem needs a lot of loving.

    I had this exact same problem with windows 8.1 after my hard drive failed and I had to reinstall. The audio problems lasted for a few months and then one day I restarted my computer and they were gone. Unfortunately I have no clue about why it stopped but now its back and as bad as ever! I've noticed that it's not effecting iTunes though I can't say the same for other sources.

    Well, sounds more like a different problem with a similar result. For my part at least iTunes is just as much affected as anything else, it's definitely a system-wide issue. It's more noticeable though at lower volumes. I guess when the audio is already pretty loud and up the scale of 1-100, say at 80, the difference is small enough that one doesn't really notice, when the volume is set to about 20, thus rather low, though, it can get almost twice as loud after a pause. Either way, we're all still holding out for a fix...
