    sure tried that too, nothing changed...
    That happened to me once a couple of years ago. What worked for me was first to download a version from Realtek's website, then updating that with the latest one from Microsoft Catalog. The Realtek website version is an .exe file, then you can update that with the latest from MC via Device Manager.

    So I would replace what you have now with the version from Realtek's website... in your case choose the 64-bit option in blue (then click on Global): Realtek

    Follow all the instructions to install the version. Then change the equalizer setting as you wish and see if it works. If it does, then your problem is solved. I would save those settings and restart your PC one more time to make sure. If all is good, now you can update with the latest ones via Microsoft Catalog (via Device Manager).

    Let me know if it works for you.

    The Microsoft Update Catalog is getting somewhat confusing regarding Realtek HD Audio Drivers. The latest release build 8090 is now showing as 6 different entries, 4 64-bit and 2 32-bit. These are defined by Windows 10 pre AU and post AU.
    The thing that confuses me is why are there 4 entries for 64-bit. http://www.catalog.update.microsoft....x?q=6.0.1.8090

    If you look closely, some have (SST) in Driver Model description, while others don't.

    wow, you rock mate! that worked!

    actually I just installed the 2.81 drivers from realtek official site, they're from january 2017, so not old at all.. they work, as said, thanks, but do you think it's really necessary to install the cab ones? Why they're not available from realtek site?

    Thanks, I'm glad it worked for you.
    I personally update via the cab files on MC since they usually provide minor improvements to sound. I think Realtek only provides major updates on their website.

    You're welcome.
    I'm presuming the SST drivers refer to Intel, so I usually update using the other ones.
