    I have installed the Realtek R2 79 driver from their website and interestingly I have been given the Asus HD Audio Manager CP even though I didn't download MB specific drivers.

    The Realtek drivers do get quite heavy on background processes once installed...
    My is showing 2 processes with about 4MB of memory used. There's also windows sound service.

    Is that DTS Audio Service and HD Audio Background Process?

    Also what version drivers did you install and what CP do you have? Is it this:

    What is Maxx Audio and is it better than Realtek HD Audio Manager?
    It's a utility which comes together with Realtek HD Audio, and I think that it's only for some motherboards/laptops which support Maxx (mostly Asus). It has some nice controlls for sound. I have a not bad but weird sounding speakers on my laptop (4 speakers inside laptop + external subwoofer) and they sound pretty weird if not correctly tuned with MaxxAudio, it looks like this:

    The screenshot I posted is of part of the unzipped build 7926 driver package from the Realtek ftp server. The files shown are not installed on my PC as I don't have a Maxx Audio compatible device.
    I've not checked the contents of the download from Microsoft.

    Have you tried downloading the latest Maxx Audio driver from the ASUS site?

    Also have a read of this [FIX] Windows 10 and Asus G750JS Realtek MaxxAudio [How to Get it!]
    Yes, I checked now in the extracted package which I installed and true, there is MaxxAudio. So I don't get it why it won't install? My device is surely MaxxAudio compatible since I had it already and it worked fine. Is there a way to manualy install it?

    Drivers on my laptop's official page are out of date, laptop is now 2.5 years old and there weren't any updates for an year already. There's no dedicated MaxxAudio install, only the whole Realtek HD Audio driver which comes with MaxxAudio installed and the latest version is very old, 7179

    @CountMike,

    I take it you have a Gigabyte MB? Are the Realtek drivers somehow determining what MB we have and installing the appropriate CP?

    It surely looks like, I'd like to fool it to look like MSI for instance but even downloading drivers from MSI didn't change anything. Tried Asus too.

    Well I don't know how that works! I downloaded the drivers from Realtek's website and it somehow recognizes I have an Asus MB and installs the corresponding CP, kinda spooky!

    Should I have uninstalled the MS drivers before installing the Realtek ones? I actually had two "High Definition Audio Device's" in device manager. I've uninstalled one but not the other as I'm unsure...

    Yeah, probably reads from BIOS and installs accordingly.

    Hi.
    I have a really annoying problem that i'm struggling for days... after i install the Realtek drivers (multiple versions from 6.0.1.7541 to currently 6.0.1.7926) and after the restart my sound card works fine but after a minute or two Windows(svchost.exe) downloads something off the internet and ruins the whole thing. i recorded the output with my phone: Record_0001 - Clyp

    As you can see it is scratchy and corrupted... i have this problem with high bass audio.
    I have tried turning sound effects off but it doesn't make a difference...
    Does anybody have a solution?

    Would make sense actually as the driver might need to be tailored slightly for different MB sound chips.
