    Problems with Realtek HD audio driver and audio manager on Windows 10


    Hope you can help me here

    I have installed Windows 10 today. So far so good, except for the sound volume being REALLY low. It appears that it is a problem with Realtek HD audio driver, so I manually downloaded it, but still the sound is very low. The audio manager, which is the mixer and volume control hub, appears in the startup programs on the task manager, but it isn't available on the desktop bottom corner, as if it's installed but cannot be used...

    Thing is, on Windows 7 everything worked without any problem at all. It is really annoying that after whole this time Windows 10 still has this kind of problems...

    Any solution?

    TIA

    I've tried everything suggested in this thread: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version - Windows 10 Forums

    But it didn't help. Sound is still very low and mono.

    Anyone?

    Depends on your PC hardware. Is it "fully" Win 10 compatible. As you upgraded from Win 7, not all Win 7 machines are fully Win 10 compatible.

    I have Realtek audio on my Win 10 desktop and it works perfectly. However, it is a new desktop build and fully Win 10 compatible.

    There are several posts about low mic volume with upgraded (no idea what hardware) from Win 7 or Win 8 and in those cases a new sound card or USB sound card was needed to get the proper mic volume.

    Please fill in the "My Computer" specs so we know what we are dealing with.
