Audio driver is acting strange

Hello, I have a very strange problem with my audio driver. I recently purchased the CoolStar SOF Audio (Intel / I2S) driver for my Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5, and the driver worked at first. But after some time, my speakers and microphone disappeared, and the device manager showed the message:
(Translation: German → English) The device could not be started. (Code 10)

{Device timeout} The timeout of the E/A-Process on %hs was reached before the E/A-Process could be finished.

Some time later, the driver appeared to work again, but after 1 minute, the same error appeared again.

Update: The issue seemingly vanished after upgrading to Windows 11

Thanks for the update. Know I know to suggest this to people having this issue in the future.
