The only way to get digital would be to install a separate sound card that had digital I/O jacks. There are none on the motherboard. The other obvious option would be to use a different motherboard that has that. I don't recall any that has both digital input and output; many have a digital output but a digital input is rare. I have a recording studio and my recording interface has the S/PDIF input and outputs but that is a different application (and much higher cost).

Install and use a PCIe sound card, and disable the on-board audio in the BIOS so it does not conflict (Windows will only allow one default audio playback device).

That has nothing to do with "digital".

Please post what you have listed in the Device Manager, Sound section.

Is there anything else listed in that section or is the RealTek the only entry?

What is showing in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel, Playback section? The "Speakers" should be set as the default audio playback device.

If that shows properly, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes any Windows sound corruptions.

If that does not fix it consider installing the latest RealTek "HD Audio Codec" driver direct from RealTek. The one listed on the Gigabyte site is R2.70. The latest is R2.75. www.realtek.com

Realtek

Select the High Definition Audio Codecs (Software).

Select the appropriate 64 or 32 bit version (whichever you have on that system).

One other thing that you may want to do FIRST before installing the latest RealTek driver is to Install the motherboard chipset drivers.

"Intel INF installation" drivers.
