    Windows 10

    Big thanks to erpster4 for giving the driver package. I don't know how you people find stuff like this but I'm glad you do.

    Anyways, the driver worked for a little while, the first two days was fine, and there was an automatic switch between headphones/speakers. However, today I booted up the computer to find that the computer messed up somewhere and muted the headphones. Or rather, both headphones and speakers play sounds fine, but the sound menu labels both as "speakers". It's a bit hard to explain, but I've somehow fixed it by disabling the headphones for now. Weird.

    Anyways, thanks everyone that helped out . I'll leave this open for problems some other people posted.

    Windows 10


    I just want to share my own experience. As most of you, I have same problems of VIA driver updated by Windows 10 causing microphone and speaker sound problems. The original drivers from VIA or Asus are OK, but they are quickly replaced somehow by Windows 10 (maybe at a reboot). So once I was on a good configuration with VIA driver (in Device manager it appears as High definition audio (good) instead of Via audio (bad), I use the following tool to prevent Windows 10 to update the existing good driver.

    How to Uninstall and Block Updates and Drivers on Windows 10

    Then the VIA driver to be updated is listed by the tool. So you just check it to mask it to be updated from Windows 10. This seems to work well!

    Of course you must use the tool when you are with the working driver but candidate to be updated by Windows. Otherwise, if you are with the latest VIA driver updated by Windows 10, you will not see the VIA driver in the MS tool above, and hence you will not be able to block/mask anything.

    Hope this helps.

    Windows 10 Home 64-bit

    Sorry for the necropost. I will start a new thread if required but this is exactly my problem though none of the solutions above seem to work. The VIA driver download which I actually tried before coming here gives me the option to switch automatically. That turns the speakers off but the headsets do not work. Other fixes including this one I found on reddit and the one in the previous post there by hapx do not seem to work. They either make it so the system tray says they are switched when they are not or the headphones or speakers don't work.
    My next step is to download a switcher that runs in the systray that allows a switch with a single click but I would really rather it just worked correctly. Any help?
    BTW .. I did verify that my VIA chipset (1818) is included in the VIA download)
