    Rear audio ports always show as “Not plugged in”

    I've been having this issue with Windows for about a week now which NONE of the back panel/front panel connectors (speakers, microphone) are being recognized by Realtek audio manager. The only audio input/outputs that are showing are the optical.
    Troubling shooting steps I've tried (none worked):

    • COMPLETELY uninstall all Realtek drivers/reinstall
    • Tried using windows drivers
    • Reinstall Windows 10
    • Upgraded chipset driver
    • sfc /scannow

    I called EVGA and asked for RMA but then I booted into a Ubuntu OS and all the ports work FINE. It must be a problem with windows 10.
    Can you think of any other troubling shooting step I can try to fix this annoying issue? Thanks!

    After looking in Device Manager under Audio inputs and outputs, I don't see any speaker/microphone listings, only the optical crap:

    I've fixed the issue my self. Somehow "Disable front panel jack detection" in the Realtek settings made all my other ports work again.
