    Try the Station-Drivers driver using the update and browse my PC options. It may work. If it doesn't post again here and we'll provide additional suggestions. @fireberd: I'm running out of ideas. Can you suggest something else for the OP to try, please?

    Thank you for trying so much, but still no result.
    I tried instaling with have-disk, updating via folder selection, installing trough the executable in the driver... all that with multiple drivers from station-drivers, ECS and realtek website...
    All that's happening is either it reverts to "high definition audio device" or it is "realtek high definition audio device" with the error: This device cannot start. (Code 10){Operation Failed}The requested operation was unsuccessful.

    So, if anyone got another idea, i'll try anything... the headphones port to work is very important to me as i'm most of the time on headphones, turning the sound to TV only when watching a movie

    Don't know if it's any help, but the microphone insertet next to the headphones work normally when it's at "high definition audio device" but doesn't show up when realtek with the error is there...

    Install/reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers. If the chipset drivers were not installed, devices on the motherboard may not be recognized or mis identified. Code 10 also indicates incorrect device driver, but install the chipset drivers, restart the PC and see if that changes anything.

    I've used the driver on the Realtek site many times, without problems on compatible Realtek sound devices.

    As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in the voice of Sherlock Holmes, once said: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth" [Sign of the Four, Ch. 6, p 111 in the Doubleday edition of the collected works]. Glad you got it figured out! Happy for whatever part I played in helping...
