  1. My laptop sound keeps cutting on/off during videos. If I pause a video for longer than 30 seconds - 1 minute, the sound doesn't play and it's really starting to irritate me. This has happened before, but the sound went bak to normal after a day or two.
    I don't know why this is happening because my laptop is up to date on Google Chrome and was just recently updated. I have Windows 8, but I don't think that's the problem
    UPDATE: I just went to youtube and my laptop is working perfectly fine -_-

    Might be audio drivers need update - check manufacturer website - support - download - audio drivers.

    Laptop - couple of years old - blanket of dust inside - heat building up inside - may need cleaning.

    Could test temps somewhat with HWInfo (

    Check youtube for videos about cleaning inside laptop.
