As the title says for some reason my audio always cuts off after a while and doesn't work at all. I have installed the newest drivers i have tried going back to older drivers, I have restarted multiple times, (it starts working for a bit after the restart) I have tried disabling and enabling the sound card nothing seems to be working. I also tried with other speakers and headsets.

What is the model of your sound card?

It is called IDT High Definition Audio CODEC. Unless this is not what you are looking for. Please tell me how to find it if this is not what you are looking for :)

I would recommend downloading the audio drivers from the HP website. Try this and see what happens. Just enter the model number on the support page and select Audio Drivers.

Alright I will try that but I also figured out that the disabling and re enabling the sound card/driver makes it work for the time being but after a while goes back to its former state of no sound. For some reason it only happens when I am not playing any sound in the background since I haven't had it happen while watching a video etc. Also every time I hit the mute button on my keyboard for my laptop the sound doesn't actually change from mute back to sound and vice versa. Usually its stuck at (for example) 50 volume and when I press the mute button nothing happens neither of the icons change.

EDIT: I just tried it with the driver but I already had it. I decided to uninstall it and re install it but so far no luck. Not sure why it's doing that but I may just have to bring it in for repairs. Thanks for the help anyways!
