    Exclamation [GL504GM] Audio disappears randomly.

    GL504GM - ES040T

    Bios version: 307

    CPU: i7-8700HQ

    Memory amount in GB: 16

    GPU: nVidia GTX 1060 6GB

    SSD/HDDs/Optical drives: 128GB ssd / 1TB hybrid

    AC Adapter: original ASUS adapter

    Operating system: Win 10 64-bit

    Original ASUS factory image or clean install? Original factory Win10, full updated

    Microsoft Activated yes/no? YES

    Drivers Installed (include version and especially any non-ASUS approved notebook drivers): Original ASUS drivers

    Any third Party temp/voltage software installed: No

    System Overclocked (provide details)? No

    Any hardware upgraded? No, all factory original hardware

    My laptop's audio stops randomly with no prompt whatsoever: on boot, on Chrome, on MPC-HC, Netflix app, games after being closed. It reappears, it disappear again without opening any program.
    The only solution I have found is to wake the speakers up by going to Speakers properties or moving the sound level on volume mixer with the mouse.

    I have tried to disinstall sonic studio, sonic radar, to update the BIOS, to search real Realtek drivers but with no luck (on the official site there is a "fishy" one? With a .txt to how install it but nothing really happens?). Also reset Windows to factory, updated it with no game installed, and it also happens.
    How is it even possible?

    Now I read about a lot of people having TONS of performance problems while playing games. This machine should be able to do it without this kind of issues.
    I had to move out from my country for work, so I could not take my desktop with me.
    I am seriously thinking about asking a RMA and buy parts for a new desktop PC. With the same price range I will surely build a better desktop than this soup of issues.
