Additionally, can you provide the Laptop make and model ?
I installed the latest drivers last night but still had no luck.

My laptop is Acer Aspire 5935G

OK now, uninstall the existing AUDIO driver fully from the Laptop. Visit the below link and select the accurate model and download the Audio drivers. I see that the drivers are available

I understand, but just want you to try reinstalling

OK in the below website. I see that they have given the Realtek driver version 2.30 which is for your 8 channel ALC 889 driver, on your Laptop. The latest version is 2.41 which you have installed.

RealTek ALC889 Driver Download

So try installing this. Sometimes the old version of the drivers will fix the issue

Note: You will get two installer files in the ZIP download. Just install the Audio driver and ignore the other software.

O yes I remember now, when I installed the latest drivers, the realtek control software dissapeared and I couldn't find it anywhere nor install it, so I had to do a system restore. Sorry, I was so tired last night when I did this, that I forgot all about it
