W540 Sound glitchy/garbeled and dropdown menus disappear. Drivers?

2019-12-27, 21:39 PM

Hi y'all.


I have a Thinkpad W540. I have 2 problems


1.) when I play any kind of audio be it from iTunes, youtube or the windows error sound its a little garbled or glitchy sounding. you can still understand it but its got kind of a lag. It makes movie watching impossible. I've checked that my drivers are up to date in the device manager. Not sure what else to try.


2.) When I click on a dropdown menu like filling out a PDF or a form on DMV's website or anything, it only stays open for half a second tops and closes. I have to be very quick and look at my choices and click fast before it closes, otherwise, I have to use the arrow keys to make a choice.

Everything is up to date. I've been having this trouble for a year and have finally decided to dig in. Do these sound like driver issues or something else?


Thanks :)
