    And how do you determinate that is the correct driver after you run this command?
    If the HardwareID from the results from this command it's the same HardwareID that we see from Device Manager informations?

    The command (just like Device Manager) shows the HardwareID, for which the driver is installed.
    If the driver you have downloaded doesn't match the HardwareID, simply it will not be installed.
    To explain that, just note that along with the driver files, there are also several .inf files, which are used to install the driver. If the driver doesn't match the HardwareID of your audio device, in one of the.inf files, it will not get installed. Once it does get installed, then either from the above command, or from Device Manager, you get the confirmation that the driver was installed.

    If you want to find which .inf file was used to install the driver, run this command in an elevated PowerShell

    Code:
    Get-WindowsDriver -Online | where {$_.ProviderName -Match 'Realtek' -and $_.ClassName -match 'MEDIA'} | select @{N='INF file used';E={Split-Path $_.OriginalFileName -Leaf}}
    Then go to the driver files you downloaded and search for the .inf file you got from the command above.
    Open the .inf file with notepad and verify that your HardwareID is included.

    Thanks, so if I find the "code" for my audio device using your link, where should I look in the driver files to know if it's for that code? (I want the driver with the Realtek Audio Control Panel btw)
    If I read this correctly you want the Realtek Console , which means you NEED the UAD Driver, not the ones mentioned in this thread which are the HDA Drivers...

    Realtek Audio Console REQUIRES a Realtek HD (UAD) Driver!! - Windows 10 Forums

    this seems to be confirmed by the Download Page for your motherboard as the file is only 30mb which is about normal for a UAD Driver but not the 200mb + HDA Drivers

    The Specs page also suggest there are no integrations so the Generic FF00 may work as your 0892Codec is listed in the HDXRT.inf ( it is not in HDXRT4.inf but possibly in one of the others but you don't need a HDA driver)

    But this means that my hardware ID should be listed in one of the .inf files right? This is not the case for me for some reason.

    Thanks a lot for the info. But I also receive the the Audio Control Panel when I install the HDA .inf files. This is the program that I'm talking about:

    HDA Drivers Install the Realtek Manager Program that comes with the HDA Drivers as pictured above.....

    UAD Drivers use the Realtek Console , which can only be gotten from Windows' Store.... ( these are the Drivers on you MB Page)

    you can use either but they use different Drivers , the UAD Drivers also install other "dependencies" they need to operate.

    Your Realtek chip Family Codec is in the Generic .inf (dev_0892) but it does not list particular Chips , just the Family, as it is for ALL realtek chips going back 5-10years.

    the HDA FF00 (Generic) Drivers should work for just about everyone.....

    Just something to throw out there:

    In the forums we get some members having problems supposedly with latency and and getting audio Rice Krispies sound(Snap Crackle Pop).

    I wonder now if it could be their DAC chips and not their Realtek chips?

    I mean in my motherboards specifications the say I have ESS® ES9023P Sabre 24 bit DAC:
    ESS Technology :: ES9023

    http://www.esstech.com/files/4114/40..._PB_101103.pdf



    So I wonder if their DACs are the problem on lower end boards?

    Or the problem is their DAC is 24 bit, but they try to use 32-Bit/192kHz playback in Realtek(which for playback has ABSOLUTELY no benefit to sound, and is for recording extremely quiet things, and to avoid clipping during recording, before being converted to 48kHz/16 bit for distribution).

    Using way to high settings, and not ones where the Realtek chip, the DAC and the recording all jive, will cause the system to use a little more processing time causing latency.
    That's entirely possible. I know that my system, as ancient as it is, more than likely has a low quality DAC. Not sure which one it is, but I'll do some digging and see.

    Typically, though, I don't get a lot of Rice Crispies unless the recording is bad to begin with. The only thing I tend to get is feedback hums when using the front panel headphone jack (and with the age of the mobo, I am not entirely surprised at this at all).

    I still can't find the dev_0892 line in any of the driver files. Sorry but it is still unclear to me how to be sure a drive is made for my device. Where is the Generic.inf file? How can I know that a driver is a HDA FF00 version?
