    Could try Driver Sweeper as a last resort, it has an option for Realtek driver cleaning: Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

    Actually it is DDU now and doesn't have Realtek cleaning anymore. I used it in the past and fixed a problem for me. Oh well.

    A lot of times BIOS updates are for new CPUs. Is there a changelog that says what the newer one does?

    Visited the MSI site. These are the drivers you are installing?

    for the 2.8 update this is all it has

    - Improved Memory compatibility.
    - Update microcode

    but for the 2.6 version i have noticed there is something about improved audio problem when using IVY-bridge cpu,


    - Add more DMI information.
    - Improved audio problem when using IVY-Bridge CPU.

    i have the intel I7 4930K processor, but not sure if its IVY-bridge or not

    Something is not right. Is their support any good? May need to contact them or check their forum. Sorry, all I have left.
