If you have already tried older version of the driver. It could be a physical problem with the hardware. Or a problems with the version of Windows 10 that you’re using. If this is the case, you can try either resetting your device, or upgrade to version 1809.

Have you try thisfix (reddit)?

If you also have Realtek wireless driver, try to disable it. Then uninstall it, and install the most up to date version again. This could also help.

Yes I tried everything in the Reddit post none worked and I have uninstalled and reinstalled ever driver I have tried at least 4 times with bad results. I have finally found a Driver that seems to be working it is not Realtek but at least I seem to have reliable sound,
