Laptop slow to play sound

I have a new HP Laptop which has been running fine apart from it is unable to pick up sound from the moment I press play. I could be watching a film and it takes a few moments for the sound to kick in, if I then drag the film back to the beginning it does the same thing. This problem occurs on all applications requiring sound including ITunes and Youtube. Is there anyway I am able resolve this it would be much appreciated if someone could help.

If the machine is new I would take it back to where you purchased it.

or if you prefer try uninstalling / reinstalling / updating sound drivers

As it does it in various applications, looking like drivers or sound chip.
