Realtek second from top.
Yes, those are newest, had that too. Right now I went back as far as this CODEC chip is supported and same thing.
I'm not complaining about drivers, sound is same quality which ever I tried just no system wide adjustments. Getting different sound in different programs. Watching TV (pass thru from sat receiver) and online video like You tube, base is too strong and need constant adjustment on the amp (Sub-woofer) itself but than music and movies sounds wrong.
It's all about the Hardware and Compatible IDs for your audio card. Windows will only provide a driver matching those IDs. If you want to try AndreTen's installation, we need to know the matching ID and the Original .inf file used for the install.
- Right click your audio device->Properties->Details tab. Select Matching device id from pull down menu. Copy/paste result into your next post
- Next select Inf name from pull down menu and jot down the oem inf filename
- Open an admin command prompt. Type dism /online /get-drivers
- Search the result of 3) for the oem filename in 2).Tell us the Original File Name
The Andre's Original File Name inf is the one you want try and hack
Inf File = oem14.inf
Those all stay same which ever driver I install.
Published Name : oem9.inf
Original File Name : hdxcr.inf
Inbox : No
Class Name : MEDIA
Provider Name : Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

@ComputerGeek, we have a bit different chips 889A vs 889, one is on Intel Board, second AMD
Can't choose individual .inf file. With 80036 .inf file is oem41.inf this time.
- The Original inf filename (see prior post)
- The matching device id (can show whether the driver installed was hardware specific or a generic/compatible driver)
- Driver version number also helpful if you want to compare
When you download from Realtek or MUC, you download a driver with close to 100 different INF files. You need to know the Original filename to understand what was actually installed
Based on the hw ids you provided earlier, my guess is you installed HDXPCEEF.inf. (you should double check). AndreTen installs HDXRC.INF. At least one of the (big) reasons you see different results.
