They all share the same chip so it doesn't matter.Alternatively, fdegrove is suggesting this one, though I don't know why since it's the same Realtek version number and aimed at Inspiron 5445/5545 models.
That's what I'd suggest as well.Ultimately, you can try using the MS HD audio driver instead of Realtek's.
@NovHak , @fdegrove I've tried everything that you guys told and and everything that I've found on the internet, looks like it doesn't work
There's one last thing that I'd like you guys to help me with if you want to. Where can I find the MS HD audio driver? I can't find it for win 10, only for 7 and 8/8.1
Thank you for your help, guys!
You could try reinstalling the Realtek driver and changing some parameters in the Realtek control panel, such as in the advanced device parameters, having all entry jacks considered as different recording devices. Then look at your recording devices again, at the bottom right. You can reenable the automatic prompt on jack plugin, in case it's not enabled.
@asturias7 I've been listening to build 7989 for a couple of hours now. I'm finding a bit difficult to judge soundwise, there's absolutely nothing wrong with them but it's probably best to say that to me the sound is a bit unrefined compared to build 7986.
Best to try them out for yourself mate, it's easy enough to switch back if you don't like them.
Updates are coming faster then hot cakes, even if the latest one is not good, by the time u wanna roll back there will be another version out.
i just updated to 86 yesterday, now 89 is out. I don't even have enough time to test the current driver before another version is out.
Still at 7156 and happy with that I must be loving cold cakes !
