Windows 10, Home Clean Install

Go to search
Type device manager
In device manager find your audio card
Make sure there are not yellow markers by the card.
If you look ok, make sure that the driver is up to date.

You can try the sfc /scannow command in elevated Command Prompt. Maybe the system file checker can fix it.
