    Windows 8.1, sounds panel won't open after 1min.

    so i have booted my laptop and i can open sounds panel for 1 min, after 1 min it won't be open.
    if i want to change the volume, i need right click on the icon and choose sounds, devices, then change. it's totally annoying.

    My sound panel takes a long time to open if the HDMI audio is enabled. I don't use HDMI audio so I disabled it in the Device Manager. Now the panel opens properly.
