I want to make sure what Realtek HD device it was. It is a Realtek 880 HD audio device.
Try this driver: It is from a 3rd party site so click on the blue link that is below the green download button on the page that says Click here to download.
[Click here to Download]
This is my last effort.

You are very welcome!
I am so happy to learn you got it to work, and our efforts were finally rewarded.
I have never been so confounded by what I thought was going to be a "no brainer" fix.
Apparently your PC is extremely particular about what version driver can be installed.
R2.56 is very old since they are now up to R2.64.

yes yes I was the same, I was at the stage if that last bit you had said had not worked I would have to have taken it back to XP, but thankfully we got there in the end!
