I recently built a new PC and I am struggling to find a fix for the front and rear audio ports not working. I have hd audio enabled in UEFI. I am unable to find Realtek drivers in Device Manager even when using "Show hidden." I have installed Realtek HD drivers from both the Asus website support page for my motherboard the Asus ROG Strix X470-F Gaming motherboard and directly from Realtek. Speaker is not shown as an output option in the playback menu of sound settings. Help would be greatly appreciated. This is the 2nd motherboard I have tried and both my Speakers and my headset work on my other PC.

If it's not showing any audio device in device manager, it's either disabled in the BIOS or broken. Did you contact Asus support?

Video cards often have HDMI audio chips which become default audio device when a video card driver is installed.

Managing multiple audio devices is done in the Windows Control Panel>Sound.
