I've been using headphones with 4 conductors jack ever since I got the laptop. Ever since last bios and Windows update, 4 conductors headphone jack is causing periodic "play" command for all my medias.
I first noticed it on movies on VLC player, where the movie will keep playing seconds later after I paused it. I first thought it was VLC player issue. Same thing happened with a different media player, then with YouTube, and on iTune as well. Pausing any media simply does not work because every 5 to 7 seconds, a "play" command is being sent. This is the same command from pressing the "call" button on headphones with mic, except I'm not pressing that button. I then thought my headphones are going bad. But same thing is happening on a brand new pair of headphones with 4 conductors. If no headphones or a 3 conductors headphone jack is plugged in, this doesn't happen. Not only is the "play" command cannceling my pause, it's going as far as automatically opening and play a MP3 file if I highlight it without double click. It does not automatically open a video file.
In summary, after recent update, my X1C6 has been interpeting a "play" command every few seconds from headphones with 4 conductors jack, even no such command was being sent. Did not have this issue until recently. No issue if no headphones or if a 3 conductors headphone jack is plugged in.
Solved! Go to Solution.

THANK YOU! It has been driving me insane. I love my X1C6, but the realtek drivers have been a realpain in the ass. Here's hoping they'll be a fix for the auido start delay eventually.

First of all, installing driver version 188.8.131.5251 seemed to solved the issue for me too (used to have version 184.108.40.20642). Thanks for the hint!
In general, I'm disappointed with the quality of this laptop (such a basic bug would be embarrassing for entry models as well). Specifically, I have following the comments:
No idea what Windows laptop would be a better choice (I can't go with a Mac due to SW constraints). Any recommendation (I'm looking for a small, light and powerful biz laptop)?

I still have this problem. Reverting to an old driver gives me a static through the headphones when my laptop is being charged. So I either have to deal with unpausing media or static when using headphones. Any other people with this problem? Any solutions?

If your driver is getting updated with every update, you can try this
