    High Definition Audio Device drivers missing

    Hi Davide

    The High Definition Audio drivers are built into Windows already

    Right click that device in Device Manager, choose 'Update Driver

    Then choose 'Browse my computer for Driver Software' - 'Let me pick from a list of available drivers'

    If you do not see the default High Definition Audio device, untick 'Show Compatible Hardware'

    On the left, select Microsoft, then on the right scroll down to find 'High Definition Audio Device Version 10.0. . . . .

    The High Definition Audio Device is missing

    Realtek High Definition Audio and High Definition Audio Device missing

    Hello,
    Basic info:
    I'm using a Dell G5 15 gaming notebook with Windows 10 for about half a year. Pretty early on I got sound problems such as occasional static sound, static sound when playing yt video and a game at the same time and such. I found a fix to this by going to the Device Manager and changing High Definition Audio Device to Realtek High Definition Audio which would fix it for some time and then I'd have to do it again.
    Problem:
    But now I don't have Realtek High Definition Audio nor High Definition Audio Device in the device manager, I only have Realtek Audio. ( and Intel display audio, NVIDIA high definition audio, NVIDIA virtual audio device, but I don't think these are relevant) So the sound is low quality, muffled and there's the occasional static sound. I tried installing Realtek High Definition Audio driver from the original Dell G5 15 site, so it should be compatible, the installation goes well, but there is no change in the actual audio. Looking for help on how to fix this. Thanks
