    realtek audio manager missing


    I have the asrock z77 extreme 4 mobo and when i originally installed it it had realtek audio manager on it, but after a while and upgrading to windows 8.1 it doesnt seem to be on my system anymore. I have gone through my files and downloaded the newest drivers to no avail, if anybody could guide me through the steps to fix this, i would greatly appreciate it.

    8.1 no longer provides an icon, for whatever reason, you need to open it via control panels.

    Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - DTS Audio Control Panel.

    Does it show in the Device manager under Sound,Video and game controllers ? Device manager on menu select scan for hardware changes.

    Try running a hardware troubleshooter, open control panel in search box type troubleshoot, go down to Hardware and sound, click configure a device. Try completely uninstall and reinstall again, then reboot PC.

    Edit: Well scratch that if it does not.
