I have downloaded the latest realtek driver from guru3d (2.82).

Got it installed and have no sound manager in the control panel and nothing happens when I click on C:\Program Files\Realtek\Audio\HDA\RtkNGUI64.exe.

Audio is working though.

Also I tried using DDU, same result.

I'm on Win 10 1909.

Should I uninstall it again and let windows find a driver?

oh, wait..this one probably solved by this..go to device manager, right click on start menu and go to device manager..now on Audio inputs and outputs right click on Speakers (2- Realtek High defintion Audio) and uninstall them..uninstall others if they also have 2 in front of them..after uninstall them click Action on upper left and click scan for hardware change...now speakers, microphone will appear again in Audio inputs and outputs..check this time if they have 2 - in front of them.

It's a known bug/issue for the R2.82 (v6.0.1.8186 - driver date 6/14/2017) Realtek audio drivers to produce a non-functional Realtek HD audio manager control panel, P4-630. R2.82 is a little over TWO years old since that one was released around the end of July 2017.
The problem was fixed somewhere in the driver versions at least in the 8200s or 8300s released in autumn 2017 or early 2018.

as ador250 was saying, use latest FF00 HDA driver like 8838 (and if you don't need the extra integration or the extra audio enhancer software like ASUS Sonic Studio). but if you are missing some audio features from the FF00 driver, you could try the v6.0.8816 FF03 Realtek audio driver since the Asus Z170 Pro gaming board came with Sonic Studio & Sonic Radar apps which depend on the Nahimic integration files from the FF03 drivers or the originally bundled v7899 Realtek audio driver for that board.

Hello,
I too have problems since the update of Windows10 1909
I have an Aorus7 Z370
The manager of his realtek has disappeared and since then I have a robot voice in my microphone, but it's random.

I already had the same problem when upgrading my previous version windows10 1809

With the latest drivers Gigabyte (8586) I have no sound or I can not change the main outputs with the manager of its windows 10.
I use the 8210 but still this problem of micro

what is the difference between 8838 F00 and F01?

solutions?

I think buy an internal sound card, no realtek driver problem

Well 6.0.8838.1 fixed it for me.

This is what I have now from the link ador gave me:

Ah yeah, a Gigabyte board you got there.

Maybe you should start your own thread then.

Or try DDU and just download and install the latest driver from Gigabyte.
