    1| Realtek powered audio devices have been hardest hit by users and systems that migrated to Windows 10. Unfortunately there isn't that many options for fixing but here goes.

    2| You can try uninstalling and reinstalling the audio drivers from your manufacturer's site and/or from Realtek's site.

    3| Make sure you're installing them in an elevated command;

    Right click installer>Run as Administrator.

    Failing that you can try and install the drivers in compatibility mode:

    Right click installer>Properties>Compatibility>Windows x from the drop down menu.

    4| Have you made sure your motherboard BIOS is up to date?

    5| I could ask you to try and reinstall your OS to a previous version like Windows 7 to see if the issue is resolved but how about you try and perform a repair install for Windows 10?

    6| The last thing to do is to purchase a USB driven sound card or an add-on PCI-E based sound card, though they won't be cheap.

      If the audio is otherwise working, it's extremely unlikely to be a problem with the realtek drivers.
      If audio is not working at all, it's a different matter - but the OP said the machine itself works fine.
