    Can that solve the problem? I used version 3.3 and it has found no missing and outdated drivers.

    I was referring to using this program to completely uninstall the sound driver, so that when you restart the PC Windows will install the generic High Definition Audio driver, for testing.

    Do you mean "backup the drivers?" Maybe, that is what you mean.

    I'll have to boot up Win 7 (I'm on 10 now) to check what mine says. I'll get back to you in the morning.

    Well, never mind that, because I figured it out already. All I did was to go to services.msc, turn on Device Install Service and Device Setup Manager, and my audio driver has been reinstalled. My problem is solved.

    OK. That was going to be one of my suggestions that something in the OS was causing it. Not specifically what you found but an OS Issue.

    Thanks for the update.
