How to fix realtek hd audio losing first second of playback of notifications, crack and pops (cause: device being switched to low power mode all the time by driver):
use regedit to edit
where xxxx - number from 0000 and up, look for DriverDesc value of "Realtek High Definition Audio"
Change ConservationIdleTime to ff ff ff 00
Change PerformanceIdleTime to ff ff ff 00
where ff ff ff 00 - time in seconds. Driver default values 03 00 00 00 - 3 seconds, which is causing all the problems. Value of 00 00 00 00 (no sleep timer) is not supported by realtek driver!
reboot to apply.

If you are missing separate playback and recording devies in realtek hd audio (like I do, using headset for skype and listening to music from speakers are convinient):
Search and download AudioDevice_sky.rar - realtek driver configuration editing tool.
There is no RTKHDAUDIO.DAT file present, it's ok. Go to driver policy tab, press "get policy driver" button, press "save".
Open "JackCfg" subsection, and enable "10-PBIndependentSupport", "14-RecIndependentSupport".
Press "save" again, reboot to reload driver.
You can now see separate headphones and speakers (playback) and microphone array and headset microphone in recording in windows "sound" control panel.

this fix was working fine for me for a very long time until my y530 auto updated itself to win10 1909 build today...
normally after a big win10 update, the regedit changes defaults itself back to 03 00 00 00.. but its fine because normally i can change it back to ff ff ff 00 in the regedit and the audio lag will go away..
however after the 1909 update the audio lag came back.. and when i tried to do the regedit changes like before, it doesnt work anymore this time.. so even with the regedits and after restarting, the audio lag is still there but in regedit the values are indeed changed..\
Hoping anyone else can help on this!
