Did you uninstall the sound card driver using device manager then reboot before downloading and installing the new driver?

If that's what you did then I'm out of ideas.

More thoughts

Well I've just remembered that I've seen settings fail to stick in the past when running other software. That's usually a permissions issue and running an application with admin rights usually sorts it out. However in the case of sound card drivers - it's unclear to me. Did you use an admin account to install the driver? Or do you have any software restriction policies in place? Did you install the driver from a file downloaded to your desktop or did you download it and run the installer from somewhere else?

No. I'm talking about right clicking on the driver installer and choosing "Run as administrator" assuming that you have admin rights or else know the password.

I managed to solve this by uninstalling the realtek drivers completely from my system. I have installed DFX instead, and the sound quality is superior to realtek and it works regardless of whether I am playing games, listening to music or watching a movie.
