you may have another sound driver that is interfering with realtek driver.

try running "autoruns" and delete "any and all" drivers and system files pertaining to the "sound" for your system, including realtek.

you may also want to scour the registry for anything related to realtek and or any other sound driver you discover, and remove those keys.

also, if you installed any freeware pertaining to music, like itunes, etc..., i would temporarily uninstall them.

then reboot then go to the computers home site or the home site for your motherboard to download "their" version of sound drivers for your system.
