yes. Usually I dont have the battery attached. However the problem exists when operating in battery mode.as well.
Sound plays fine with headphones.
I have downgraded other system drivers as well, like chipset, Wireless but without change. It is very strange that playback 'wakes up' after volup or down.

I have the exact same problem and have searched for an answer for several months. Found dozens of post on this problem, so it appears to have been around for several years, but no solution. Have disabled, uninstalled and updated drivers, bios, hotkeys, audio and display and even did a clean reinstall of windows 7 but problem continues. Looking into alternatives such as an express card.

I took it into a tech and all he could tell me is that another program may be interfering with audio. Also downloaded a lantecy checker that said the same thing. I have about 100 programs from email, word processing to antivirus so to try to figure out which one would take me days. I strongly suspect the Conexant driver but without it I get no sound. Anyways have spend way too much time trying to resolve this problem and so bought a clip-on speaker for my laptop. Even if this is a business laptop, and not geared towards media, it still needs to have good, consistant sound and at the cost of these laptops that is not too much to ask for. Very dissappointed in Lenovo and will keep the lack of good support in mind when I buy my next laptop.

Do you guys notice the same behavior regardless the sound source? I mean is it the same for divx or youtube playback via any browser (flash v15) or listening to radio station via internet streaming? Can you resume via the volup or voldown keys?
This is very frustrating as it also interfere with sound playback over Skype that is necessary for business calls.
As I see it, pressing the mic mute button or any other button to resume is not a solution. Despite that the sound keeps on cutting out after 2-3 minutes. Lenovo should acknowledge this and come up with a solution

Yes, videos, music, online, off-line and even window sounds, all audio turns off. Sometimes messing with the volume slider or mute button will bring it back on but eventually neither of these work and I have no audio period until I restart the computer and then the cycle starts over. For my business I create informational short videos or audios and use internet calling. I also attend trainings and meetings online. Sound cuts out first every few minutes and gradually increasing until it will not come back on at all. I purchased a small bluetooth speaker and use that but it is a pain to move, along with the laptop, when I am moving from one room or location to another. Thought it would be a temporary solution until I could get the internal speakers working but since that is unlikely to happen purchased clipon speakers to make it easier to transport. This is not some off brand, $350 computer but supposedly a quality business computer, which is what I paid for but did not receive. As I said, I have searched the internet and found hundreds of post regarding this problem on both 410s and 510s.
