  2. Headphones do not show up when Realtek is installed


    OK, so this happened to me on my laptop. It wanted to use the realtek drivers no matter what. Let me show you what to do.
    Step 1. Open the start menu and type 'Device Manager' in the search bar. Click on the result.

    Step 2.

    You'll see this window appear.

    Step 3.

    Expand the 'Sound , video and game controllers' category.

    Step 4. Find 'Realtek High Definition Audio' in the list, then right click it and select Properties.

    Step 5.

    Click on the 'Driver' tab near the top of the window.

    Step 6.

    Now click on the button that says 'Roll back driver'.
    If the button is dimmed, make sure your Realtek drivers are currently installed.

    Step 6. If you did it correctly, the system should ask you to restart to finish. If it does then you finished the tutorial correctly!
    Once restarted, Open device manager again using step 1. Expand the 'sound, video and game controllers' category again.

    Step 7. If it says 'High Definition Audio Device' then you did it right. Here's a pic for example purposes:

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
