  3. No audio devices detected


    So, after upgrading to Windows 10, my computer no longer detects any audio devices.

    Device manager only detects nvidia hd audio
    Playback devices only detects nvidia hd audio

    After installing realtek drivers, realtek is nowhere to be found - no icon in system tray, no realtek device in device manager etc.

    USB headphones work fine, just dont have any support for rear panel audio jacks, have disconnected front panel audi connector, installed fress win10 copy, still nothing
