Windows 10 Creators Update possibly broken RealTek support?
Spec: Asus Hero IX Z270 motherboard, 7700K CPU, 1080 GTX GPU, 16GB 3000MHz Corsair, H115i cooler, Samsung SSD, Corsair 750x PSU, etc.
Has anyone else found their onboard audio device has completely dissappeared, possibly since the Creators Update? Reinstalling the RealTek drivers from the Asus website doesn't help. The audio chip no longer appear in Device Manager > Audio IO, and there appears to be a problem with a 'PCI Simple Communications Controller (Code 28). There used to be a RealTek HD thing in Control Panel, and this has dissappeared.
Under Device Manager > System Devices, there are two entries for 'High Defginition Audio Controller', one of which is clearly Nvidia (tried toggling it to make sure), and the other is Asus, since it says Code 10, Device Cannot Start.
Existing audio devices, like those from Nvidia and HyperX USB headphones, are absolutely fine.
On a seperate note, the system doesn''t shut down and the fans go crazy.
Is this just another dud Asus product - should I return it to Overclockers and request an MSI motherboard instead?
