I've just installed the latest Realtek driver
and the installation goes fine but Realtek HD Audio Manager won't appear in the Control Panel or the System Tray (however, when I go to customize the notification icons, Realtek HD Audio Manager appears as "Show icon and notifications").
I've tried reinstalling time and time again. Also, Device Manager shows 4 instances of "High Definition Audio Device" as well as Realtek High Definition Audio. I've tried uninstalling these and installing Realtek but Windows automatically installs them upon restart.
Anyone got any ideas?
