    Nice to find this thread! Although it sucks that so many are having this problem, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.

    sortvind, how did you go about getting Windows to use the generic drivers? Just uninstalling the Realtek is enough?

    damienf, do you have a link to those October 5, 2015 drivers? If not, I'll try and search for them when I get home.

    If you uninstall the official Realtek drivers from Programs and Features, and then restart, Windows should install the generic Microsoft drivers. Otherwise, from Device Manager right click on the audio device and select update drivers.

    it used to be realtek driver, but i rightclicked, update driver. choose from drivers on computer, and generic hd drivers should show on the list with realtek on the bottom. applied and restartet.

    i also prevented windows update from managing drivers using a guide here

    I dunno if this will work for anyone else, but it solved the problem for me. In the Realtek driver thread, user wiggly1uk2000 posted this suggestion. Basically Windows is automatically adjusting the volume and reducing the volume of other sounds (by mistakenly increasing the sound of your main audio source, it seems). I still think it's a Windows 10 bug (as opposed to Realtek) as it's only supposed to kick in when it detects phone calls or communications activity, but changing my setting from "Reduce the volume of other sounds by 80%" to "Do nothing" and then restarting solved the problem for me. No more volume jumps.

    Thank you so so much vfoster andwiggly1uk2000!!! After reading what you posted vfoster, I found the communications tab in the sound control panel and noticed mine was already set to "Do nothing" and my volume would spike every time I opened a new form of media. For whatever reason, I changed it from "Do nothing" to "Mute all other sounds" and my volume has not spiked even once ever since! I encourage everybody to play with the communications tab settings to see if this is also your problem. Additionally, I have the option "disable all sound effects" checked in Speaker Properties under the Enhancements tab. Thanks again

    The important action is to go to Properties | Enhancements and then tick Disable all sound effects. Other changes suggested above appear to have no effect. It's clear that Realtek and/or Microsoft were trying to be too clever by offering sounds schemes to suit every need.

    I have a Dell Precision M3800 and happens exactly de same since 1 week ago after upgrade to windows 10 this is very frustrating and dangerous as I use earphones and the volume getting louder could hurt the users´s ears.

    Windows 10 Setup has replaced all your device drivers, including audio drivers with generic Microsoft drivers from Windows Update. Make sure you have latest official audio drivers installed and you should be OK. If you cannot find Windows 10 drivers, use Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 7 drivers. As a last resort use Windows Vista drivers. Then use the show/hide tool to detect any audio driver updates and block them (see earlier posts in this thread and the respective tutorial).

    I have used the Dell webpage for the correct drivers:
