I am not sure where to post this question because I don't know if it's a hardware issue, windows 7 issue, malware issue or something else...
My Asus x54c laptop, windows 7, 64bit, Home Premium is giving me some issues with sound...
If I watch a streamed video or a youtube video I get no sound through the laptop speakers.
However if I connect to a tv via hdmi the sound is perfect.
And when I boot up the laptop all the usual startup noises happen (through laptop speaker).
If i plug in a usb, eject a usb etc I get the usual sounds and tones (through the laptop speaker).
I have checked the drivers are up to date and made sure nothing is muted too. The problem seems to be there one day, or several days and gone again the next. But it's always consistent. Always works via hdmi to tv. System sounds always work on laptop speakers, including sound test. Any thoughts?
