My son built a new PC using an msi Z170A M5 motherboard and everything works fine EXCEPT the speakers. I hear the windows bootup sound, but no sound during games and web pages and no sound when trying to test. I updated the drivers using the MSI Live Update 6 program and after I restarted it appeared the issue was solved, however my son's games all crashed when he tried to play. All the games worked before. So I restored back to prior to the MSI Upgrade and his game work again, but I'm back to the same ole problem. I try to update the Realtek Digital Output drivers and Windows says it's up to date. I'm terribly frustrated. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this or has any suggestions on what to try. Once in a while, after a few reboots, the speakers will work fine with his games, and then the next day they don't.
I also have a Geforce GTX 1060 graphics card, but there's no audio ports on it. I'm using an Intel i7 Chip if that matters. I've attached a few screen shots as well.
