    I already edited by previous post, Geosammy.

    Your board is using a Realtek ALC887 chip

    you have a choice of either using an HDA driver or UAD driver.

    Thanks, but like I've already stated... I'm a "Hopeless Case".
    I'm going to use the one I already have installed.

    Please everyone, do not offer any more suggestions to me, in regard to this issue.
    It seems futile, which is causing me to become even more confused.

    Hey KB, thanks for taking the time to test it.
    Steps to be taken:
    1. Download from TF and save it somewhere convenient. (i.e. Downloads, Desktop etc)
    2. Unblock it (Right click on the saved file and in Properties > General tab select Unblock and the OK)
    3. In Windows Search/Cortana type PowerShell
    4. Right click on PowerShell and select run as Administrator
    5. In PowerShell type the following commands
    Code:
    Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process
    6. Then you run the script:
    If for instance you have saved the script in Downloads, type the following command:
    Code:
    . $env:USERPROFILE\Downloads\RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.ps1
    If you have saved it in your Desktop type the command:
    Code:
    . $env:USERPROFILE\Desktop\RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.ps1
    *mind the dot in the command
    Once run you will get the result on the screen and regardless of where you have the script, a log file called RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.log will be saved on your Desktop.
    That's it.... and thanks a lot for your time
    PowerShell and I have never gotten on :) .....and still don't , for what ever reason your detailed instructions do not work for me.... I have tried Y and A as the answer to Question 5 but I still was getting execution errors (red.) with the 1st .ps1 file but after trying to run the file directly as a command in PS it actually told me how to write the instruction to run your ps1 and the 2nd PS1 finally worked. As I have Alan Fox's FF00 8642 installed it didn't find anything of course, so I will need to reinstall the Manufacturer's Drivers and try again. The PS1 file must have a hard coded location to write the Logfile too? as I did find it in my User>Desktop Folder , only that is not my Default Desktop Folder , so I could not see it, as like my Other User Folders it is on a Separate SSD (A:\)

    Try Stasio's 8644 File from Laptop2Go he always posts the latest FF00 file as they come out , bookmark that thread and just use them when you need to Update.

    We can't post direct File links here ( Forum Rules) but here is the Post it is in....

    KB, I updated the 1st post today, with more detailed information on how to run the script.
    Yep, the location of the log file is hard coded. And there is a reason for that. It is written at the current user desktop and not the default desktop the user might have, by changing its location. You see it should accommodate the average user, who has not got into the trouble to relocate its User folders.
    And allow me to tell you that I find your approach wise. Get the driver from your manufacturer's site (regardless of its version) install it and run the script.
    If you get FF00 as, you already have, then you got into all that trouble to verify the driver type. If not, then you would have gained a lot!!!
    Anything you need and I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

    Thanks for updating the OP Dmitri, PS still doesn't want to "play" ( Dos propmt and command prompt I have no issues with but never been able to get PS working properly, I even tried the Setting under Developers in Settings to allow Local Scripts to run.

    So I used your second method and went to A:\Desktop and ran the script directly on the old 7848 Drivers and they also say my Asus X99A-II (ALC0900) has no integration. ( I actually have them all, see pic below)

    So I guess it is back to FF00-8644 for me ...is that the current best one or 8642?

    Hi KB.
    I'm very sorry for the late reply but, being busy with other threads I must have missed your post.
    So we're back to sq1, regarding the type of driver. It's official now, that you must use the generic one FF00.
    As for the version, take a look here and the subsequent replies from the guys, which clearly show that the best version so far, is 8648.
    I did install it this morning myself and my sound test showed the exact same thing. Excellent version, well balanced sound, good bass. So I would also recommend it!
    Take care mate.
