    I watched a youtube video a while ago on how to boost my laptop's volume. I followed the instructions on there, and it did work. It made my volume much louder, but I didn't like the loud white noise when no music/audio was playing and so I changed it back to what it was before.

    Ever since then, each time I start my computer, I have no audio at all. When I go in to the device manager and quickly disable and then re-enable the "Realtek High Definition Audio" driver I do have audio. This is a real nuicanse and I don't want to do this every time I start up...

    I downloaded and installed the newest realtek driver for my specific system from the realtek website, and I still have the same problem. No idea what to do.. Need help from someone who knows what they're doing.

    1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
    2. Generally speaking - and for your future advice - YouTube is NOT the place to find - guidance on how to do anything with a computer - there are far better places and much of the content posted on YouTube can most certainly be described as either unreliable or inadvisable
    3. It would help a lot if you could post details of what the changes involved
    4. On the speaker icon on the notifications area - right click and click playback devices - what is set as the default device
