    Lost all audio after upgrade to Windows 10 21H1


    The title has it all - the other day I updated my Windows 10 to the latest version 21H1 and today I noticed that there is no sound at all. I tried reinstalling the Realtek drivers, but it did not work. In fact, the Asus program that updates the drivers (I've got Asus Rog Strix Z490-A Gaming motherboard with the latest BIOS) does not work properly, but starting the Realtek setup manually produces strange effect. it first uninstalls the driver, reboots, then I hear sounds, then it installs the driver, reboots, then I do not hear sounds. Simply uninstalling driver in the Device manager does not do anything. Any ideas? Is there a way to find an updated Realtek driver?

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.

    3. Find Realtek High Definition Audio
    4. Right click and hit update driver
    5. Browse my computer for driver software
    6. Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer
    7. Click Have Disk and hit browse
    8. Click on the Realtek HD Audio mod folder and look for win64
