    Sound stops working for one second or two


    Hello, for a couple of days I started to get thoose sound bugs, it stop working for a second and then the sound continues again.

    This happends when i'm watching a serie or listening to music, whenever I open a new tab on my chrome the sound stops for like a second maybe even a milisecond or so.
    I'm not sure but I think it started when I wanted to clean some stuff from my HDD (C:), (my videos and games), my games was on my (C:) and I uninstalled them and installed them again on my (D:)
    This first was not a problem because it was not a big of a deal, it happened maybe once a hour or so but now it happends more and more often.

    This is starting to get annoying so I decided to finally try and solve this problem.

    More system specs would help us to try and help you. Please fill in the "My System Specs".

    Does this happen only on line? or does it happen playing a music file from the hard drive or from a commercial audio CD?

    How do you connect to the internet? wired or Wi-Fi?

    OK. then its not the sound hardware that is the problem. Something to do with Chrome or just being on line and the audio "buffering".

    You PC sound hardware is Realtek, not "3D".
