Ive just gone into the bios and changed the onboard sound from auto to enabled then booted the PC up and windows automatically installed realtek for me and all is working fine I cant belive it was something so simple i take it by being on auto it was forcing me to use NVIDIA.

Thanks for all your help guys, a frustrating day comes to a happy end.
