    Yet more Realtek Driver Woes


    i did a clean install of windows 10, and it is all good, until i tried some audio. it simply didn't work.

    Looking further, on the device manager i had:

    and in the system devices there was:

    for some reason there are 2 x high definition audio controller.
    I then tried to install the latest realtek driver. it went all through, but it did nothing. there were no files copied over or anything else.
    I have tried various thing, but the end result it the same. things i have tried;
    - i tried to install the latest version
    - install a few other versions.
    - even tried to install the version that came on the motherboard dvd.
    - tried it install in safe mode
    - deleted the hd audio controller and get windows to retry it again.
    - manually copied the driver files to the install directory

    is there any other ideas?

    my system is: MB: gigabyte X79-UP4, CPU: I7-3620, GFX: GTX670.

    I know the drivers work, as when i updated the machine from Windows 7, the audio was working, but since then i did a clean boot, and they dont install anymore.

    also in the device manger, i go to the properties of the hd audio controller that has the issue, and in the events tab, the last line says device not started, and the information displayed is:
    Device PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1D20&SUBSYS_A0021458&REV_06\3&11583659&0&D8 had a problem starting.

    Driver Name: hdaudbus.inf
    Class Guid: {4D36E97D-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    Service: HDAudBus

    I'm not optimistic, but as you have already expanded the drivers, have you tried manually updating the drivers from Device Manager?

    You shouldn't have all that trouble with a fairly new system like that, particularly with a clean install. Surprising.

    yeah i tried to update from the device manager, and every update option, it says that the correct driver is already installed.

    yeah i know.. i think my next action is to reformat, and install windows 7, and get all the drivers installed on there, and then try to update again.
