It's the Realtek dogshit or whatever is onboard the Gigabyte Z390 gaming X mobo, but I'm using a HyperX Cloud (that is capable of 7.1) which is set to the default 2 Channel dvd quality. I've tried other usb headsets and speakers, all with the same results in these particular titles.
The Realtek drivers I was able to find and download from their convoluted dog shit website (maximum download speed of 30 KB/sec... on my gig internet) didn't do anything. I found other drivers through Gigabyte linked to my mobo
and that exe just gets stuck in an uninstall loop after it asks you to restart the computer.
If this were happening to anyone else but me, I'd find the absurd difficulty hilarious.
I don't know if this is the answer to your audio problem with speakers (never tried speakers on these), but this worked for an older headset of mine.
Is the Hyper X an older headset? Are you speakers say older ones?
I have Realtek on both my W7 desktop and on numerous W10 laptops.
My PX22 Turtle Beach USB-based headphones - which also have a regular audio jack to them too, BTW - they just do not work on my W10 laptops, as is. They work on W7 as is, but not W10 (both systems which use Realtek).
I found out online for the PX22's, after doing lots of Googling and whatnot - that I needed a DAC as a work-around, to get those working on W10.
DAC = Digital-to-Analog Converter.
I use a USB-based Syba DAC myself for my PX22's - https://www.newegg.c...N82E16812186035
Bought a few of these from NewEgg when they were $5 before.
You plug in the USB-based DAC into a USB-port. Your connection of the audio jack for your headphones go into the DAC there, so it converts the audio itself. It basically...has its own sound card in there and does the conversion itself, from digital-to-analog.
Not sure if that'll solve your problems entirely - but if you got something like this lingering somewhere around, give it a shot.
