Try updating your sound driver. To do this, go to Device Manager, then Sound, video, and game controllers, right click on your audio controller, and left click on update driver software.

To get to Device Manager you need to go to Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance (or on System if you're on classic view), then Hardware, then Device Manager.
