    So this time, I attempted to install Realtek drivers onto my "HD Audio Device" that previously had Windows drivers. Nothing. Here's what I did:
    1) Right Click Computer on Start Menu.
    2) Clicked Manage.
    3) Went to Device Manager.
    4) Went to Sound, video, and game controllers.
    5) Double-Clicked "HD Audio Device"
    6) Went to the Driver Tab.
    7) Clicked update drivers.
    8) Clicked Browse my computer for driver software.
    9) Clicked "Let me pick..."
    10) Unchecked Show Compatible Hardware.
    11) Clicked Realtek under Manufacturers.
    12) Then Clicked Next.
    It installed and I restarted my computer. Then, I right-clicked the volume thing on the right of the toolbar and when I went to playback devices, there was NOTHING. Any advice?

    1. Are you sure it's a Realtek Audio?

    2. Why are you manually installing the driver?

    3. Try downloading the drivers from Realtek and install using the installer.

    4. Are you sure the onboard audio hasn't been disabled in the BIOS? If it is try to reenable it.

    More info bud. What motherboard?

    I'm gonna have to ask my dad for that. :/ I'm doing this manually because in attempts one and two, I tried to use the installer. The first was the "*.zip" file and the 2nd was the "*.exe". 3rd attempt was the BIOS(I'll look again) and this was my 4th. Thanks for what you can do right now.
