X79A-GD45 HD audio device can't start
« on: 16-July-19, 15:18:52 »

I have an X79A-GD45 motherboard that I have been using with Windows 7, I recently installed Windows 10 on the system but the 3.5mm speaker and headphone jacks produce no sound.

Windows 10 device manager is reporting "Code 10: Device cannot start" for an HD audio device, presumably this is the problem. I re-installed Windows 7 again, audio works fine. Re-installed Windows 10 after that and still see a Code 10 on the HD audio device. I have tried uninstalling the device and drivers so they get reinstalled to no avail. I cannot update the drivers any further as Windows says it already has the the most recent drivers and I am running the latest BIOS

Presumably there is some incompatibility with Windows 10 as audio works fine on Windows 7. Anyone have any ideas?

Sure:

Board: X79A-GD45
BIOS: 2.8
VGA: GTX 1060
CPU: i7 i7-3930K 
MEM: 2x8GB DDR3-1333
COOLER: 120MM tower

PSU: 750W Corsair

I can get the specific part numbers for the memory, PSU etc if that's truly needed here.
