    Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 10586)

    VIA HD Audio (Win 10) Not as loud as it was in Windows 8.1

    Ok, I've been having this problem for several months now. I have scoured multiple windows forums, chat groups and the like looking for a solve. But, no avail. Someone from another community actually told me to come here to you folks. So here I go again.

    I have windows 10 (home edition, 64 bit, (10.0, Build 10586)). I am running an AsusTek RoG Gaming Laptop that uses VIA HD Audio. I have all the updated drivers, have downloaded multiple different codecs. Uninstalled, re-installed, gone into bios setting, pretty much everything. And my sound -isn't- as loud as it was with previous versions of Windows. I've gone into setting and enhancements. When I actually test the speakers sound the left speaker is sorta low, the right is really high. The problem is when I open any video file/music file, the sound absurdly drops to a whisper even when the video player volume is running as high as it can go. Now this only works for video/music files. If I run a game, the sound is amazing. This only happens with Windows Media Player/Media Player Classic. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this? I'm about ready to just go back to Windows 8.1.

    I have also included a dxdiag.txt to help out if it helps.
