  1. I have big problems Sound breaks up and is really annoying. Worse in some apps than others. Hope they get it fixed soon.

  2. I have an old gateway MX6939. uP TO NOW WORKING FINE WITH W10 V 1707, THEN V1703 CAME ALONG: ALL WRONG! SOUND, DISPLAY, WIFI, CARDREADER, EVERYTHING IS NOS WORKING. I HAD TO GO BACK TO OLDER VERSION. I HOPE SOON MICROSOFT PEOPLE FIX THE PROBLEM. IT HAS BEEN MY WORST EXPERIENCE WITH WINDOWS.

  3. I’m amazed……with all the testing that has supposedly occurred with the Windows’ Insider fast ring, slow ring, whatever ring……that this wasn’t picked up on by testers. Supposedly, there are 5+ million registered to the Windows’ Insider program. I fully realize that some of them are not actually doing testing but even at 50%, that’s still 2.5 million testers that didn’t pick up on this. Or, perhaps it was identified but, because of more important fixes, MS chose not to fix before the 1703 rollout.

  4. On two Win10 computer’s (one with Creator’s Update, the other without), the sound stops working on both when I have a microphone attached; however, I can get sound through the HDMI monitors, but not through the normal audio jacks. When I unplug the microphone, the “Realtec” Audio entries show up again (on the “Sound – Playback” panel) and everything works normally. There is definitely issues with “Realtec” audio drivers and Microphones.

  5. Windows kept bugging me about this update, and finally I said yes.
    Would have expected them to pause the rollout until they had figured out these problems.

    According to this article, they have known about this for at least a month(May 19’th today), but keep pushing it.

    When going win7-> win10, the network drivers messed up and I had to manually limit the available speed/duplex. And now I don’t have sound.

  6. Been waiting TWO YEARS for a fix. This article was written two months ago and STILL NO FIX. Last Windows device I’ll ever purchase. I knew I should have bought another Mac when I bought my laptop. Windows sucks. I’m thinking it’s time for a class action lawsuit.

  7. Me too. Realtek no sound. Tried all solutions. Completely Uninstalled Nvidia(Guru), disabled Nvidia GTX550ti(four devices) on Sound and System devices(one device), installed older Realtek drivers. Nothing works. No speakers no earphones

  8. Have this same problem with my MSI X99A Gaming 9 ACK motherboard. It removed a few of my audio drivers and shows the yellow triangle in device manager. It did allow my LG monitor speakers and obviously wireless headphones to work fine. Just not the internal Realtek audio device integrated with my motherboard. I guess I will just leave my surround sound system out of the mix until this is sorted out. Hopefully they fix it soon.

  9. MSI Laptop with the Realtek chipset and the audio has been broken by the windows update.Unfortunately this update has broken my S/PDIF output. I get cracking out of one speaker. When testing through the driver it works fine (and if audio is playing via another app I can hear this as well), as soon as the test stops I get no sound again. Really not good. Have spent hours tonight installing alternative drivers but to no success.

  10. 5mil+ insiders but only 1 MS tech on the other end.
    MS is too occupied with new things to sell in the store and priority
    goes their.
    I noticed that most gpu drivers get updates from the OEM now as MS
    took too much heat for failed drivers and frying $1000.00 cards.
    My realtek hd audio on a hp g7 got removed with 1703 and installed a basic hd audio driver, but
    after doing some research found that the basic driver did not implement the hardware
    properly and could cause the chip to overheat and fry it.
    So got the driver for win8 from hp and installed it again.
    Had the same issue using sb x-fi and reltech ddlive, what a nightmare win10 has evolved into.

  11. My audio says no speakers or head phones are plugged in, after I updated Windows 10, When I troubleshoot playback, It says this device is working properly

  12. 5.1 sound still not working, realtek still not working. Are they shitting us? I just upgraded thinking that it might have been resolved. Seriously Microsoft? And no one is taking it up at them?
