So I'm messing around with this laptop that I recently acquired and I've had a very unusual problem. I was upgrading it from windows 7 to windows 10 which I've done before successfully before but had to do a re install due to activation issues. I lost my sound between updates. The sound card is installed but instead of being a realtek driver, it's showing as being an NVidia sound driver. The video card does support HDMI so I can understand that, but It refuses to even see that the onboard sound card exists. I've tried deleting the old drivers and installing the correct ones but they always come back as the NVidia drivers. I've disabled the drivers and get the same thing. I've gone into the bios and it has no options to change the sound card. It's really the most unusual problem. I know the card exists, I've used it. I've tried driver updaters and it still doesn't show. It's a MSI GT780R laptop that belonged to Kaysis. I'm performing a clean install right now to see if I can get it right this time around. I forgot to mention that I did have some issues with the windows update afterwards that might have corrupted something as I had to manually install several updates due to errors. I've searched the internet and MSI forums but can't seem to find anything like this particular error. I'm posting this here to see if anyone has any ideas. Hopefully this will be straightened come Monday or Tuesday after I get some time to go through the reinstall process.
Thanks to everyone
