    Sound Drops randomly


    I had only had this laptop (Lenovo IdeaPad n585) for 2 weeks and this problem showed up in the last 3 days. When running a something with sound (usually chrome, but recently it happened during a game) the sound specifically for that program would drop a random amount at a random time. This would happen on speakers or headphones, and I checked the drivers, ran a diagnostic and nothing showed up wrong (I also turned off the communications audio chance thing). here is a picture of what i mean by the solitary programs sound drops

    Some other application trying to access sound at the same time could be one reason for the sound drop.

    Try playing an audio CD, using the Windows Media Player, and see if it happens (do not have other programs such as steam or a game running).
