How can I solve Playback & Record device not found in windows' sound?
Sound driver status in device manager still has no conflict and Realtek Audio manager can detect only plugged in jack. I have tried to reinstalled audio driver without any conflict but still nothing in windows' sound.

If I try to restore by windows restore point, would the problem solved?

Thank you

What "driver update" did you do?

There is nothing showing, either for the RealTek PC audio or the NVIDIA HDMI audio.

RIGHT click in a blank area in the Playback panel and check to Show Disabled and Disconnected devices. If nothing still shows up RIGHT click on the RealTek entry to highlight it in the Device Manager and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the driver. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall it.
