    Are you using a browser or app?

    The browser should use the windos direct sound api, so you should not see this issue.

    My Aprire V Nitro Black Edition came with Dolby Digital Plus but because it keeps turning itself off, I uninstalled it so I could reinstall it.  But now I can't find where I can download it!   Can you please send me a link so I can get it back on my Acer?

     

    Thanks

    Hey I had the same problem with my acer aspire V17.

    Dolby Digital Plus didn't work anymore so I reinstalled the audio drivers and all of a sudden DDP disappeared!

    I did a lot of searching around on this forum and on the internet and I found nothing.

    Luckily, I found the solution by myself today!

     

    So here's what you have to do:

     

    1. Go to acer.com and click support. 

    2. Then go to Drivers and Manuals.

    3. Use the lists there to select your laptop and select it.

    4. This should show you a list of drivers and updates and stuff on the bottom of the page.

    5. Now what you wanna do there is locate the Realtek audio driver and download it.

    6. Once that's downloaded open it with any .zip unpacking program and locate the folder named "DS1".

    7. In there open either folder "x64" or "x86" (I used the x64 one for I guess 64-bit? I have no idea what the x86 means though) and in there you should find the installer for DDP!

     

    Just run it and it should reinstall DDP on your laptop! Smiley Very Happy

     

    Hope this helps!

     

    PS. Now I'm off to find a fix for my broken HD Webcam that came built in this laptop... Smiley Frustrated

    right click sound button and choose sound then go to recording tab and right on blank space and click check to disconnected and disabled devices then enable stereo mix option and choose it as a default device then problem will be solved (cortana will not work again now for cortana u should set microphone as a default device (there is a choice cortana or dolby digital))

    This Worked for me very Well, but i think on this current version on windows there are some changes which made me crack my head,but anyways Thanks!!!!!!!!!


    what i did is open Settings>System>Sound> Manage Sound devices(the words in blue colour) > in my case both Stereo Mix and Micropone was enabled , so i disabled my "microphone" by ckilcking on it and selecting disable......................

    worked FINE FOR ME THANK YOU SO MUCH
