Hello, so I had some driver timeouts yesterday when using the recommended 20.11.2 driver from AMD on my RX 470 and I decided to download the latest optional driver which thankfully solved my problem. But it brought me an other problem. I have my gpu connected to my tv monitor via hdmi and I sometimes use my monitor's speakers so I use the amd high definition device from the audio settings. After I installed the 21 driver this device has completely dissapeared. It's not even in the disabled devices. It's like it got completely uninstalled.

Of course one solution is to try to reinstall the driver but I'm looking for a faster solution if there is any. I tried using the dism command (
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth)

and afterwards doing a sfc scan but it didn't find any violations.
