Windows 7: Windows 10 , realtek doesn't appear to work

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Windows 10 , realtek doesn't appear to work

Hello , yesterday i upgraded to win 10 , all the drivers installed correctly except the audio driver. By default the windows installed High definition audio device but i have realtek. This are the methods i tried:

1.Installed the audio driver i was having on win 7 but in compatibility mode.
2.Installed the latest realtek audio driver.
3.Installed the latest realtek audio driver in safe mode.
4.I scanned the drivers with the following programs: 3DPCHIP ; DriverToolkit ; DriverEasy ; and all say that the drivers are up to date.
5.I uninstalled High definition audio controller and High definition audio device from device manager and restarted the computer.
6.I checked that the windows audio and AudioEndpointBuilder are running in service.msc


-The name of the realtek driver is : Realtek HD Audio ALC861
-If i don't disable High definition audio controller from device manager , i can't install any audio driver whitout getting this error : realtek audio failure 0xe0000247
-When i install the driver with High definition audio controller disabled the driver installs correctly but i get this error : This device cannot start (Code 10)

Sorry for my bad english. English is not my native language
