Re: [motherboard] Realtek HD Audio is not being recognized.

Do you see anything out of ordinary (i.e: ! or ?) in Device Mangler?

Do you have the Realtek set as the Default sound playback device in "Sounds and Audio Device Properties"? (especially if you have a video with HDMI output )

It did show me an '? PCI Device' under 'Other Devices'. I thought that was a bit odd. It should have said '?Audio Controller'.

I just went through my pile of disks and I found my original HP DC5750 backup image and I had made it a bootable one so I can toss it in and boot up the backup/restore program (Arconis) and everything works.
But still HP has a stupid way they want the drivers installed. Maybe I missed something.

It's fairly easy to determine what hardware a generically-named device is. Open it up in Device Manager, go to the Details tab, and change the dropdown list to "Hardware Ids". You should see something like PCI\VEN_1102&DEV_000B (using my Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium as an example). You can search at various sites (here's the one I use) using the vendor and device listings.
