Dave: We’ve been having issues for a little while now with our audio/video sounding robotic and or choppy when watching videos, playing games, just about anything on the computer.
Christy: To be honest it was making me nuts and I knew it had something to do with Windows 10 and most likely old drivers or something.
Dave: How many times have you tried updating the drivers now?
Christy: I updated the drivers for the Lenovo audio like 3 times, I seriously updated everything I could that might be related, I went so far as to try the the buffering trick for Chrome but that just made it have no sound.
Dave: And reloading the page only made it sound half as robotic, it was pretty annoying.
Christy: Today though, I have triumphed!
Dave: [facepalm] You’ve been playing video games again haven’t you?
Christy: [grin] Admit it, we’re old and will take what we can get when it comes to giving a foe (in this case the audio system on the computer) a good smackdown, lol.
Dave: [sigh] Yeah, it’s kinda why I play World of Tanks. So my gaming is going to sound better now?
Christy: Yeppers! And if any of you out there are also experiencing this issue try changing your speaker settings.
Dave: Seriously? It was just a stupid setting?
Christy: Nine frickin clicks and it was fixed. No idea how the setting got jacked up but it isn’t something I ever mess with so I’m going to blame whatever updated [shrug]
