I have an older Pavilion p7-1534 that started its life on Windows 8, was refurbished with Windows 7, then updated to Windows 10. The processor has been changed out to an AMD A10-5800K and the Seagate hard Drive has been replaced with a Western Digital Hard Drive. To the best of my knowledge, the PC comes with IDT 92HD73E Integrated Audio. After updating the OS to 10, I realized that I had lost my Beats Audio Controls with the update. In an attempt to restore them, I uninstalled the driver. Now, I can't get the driver to re-install correctly at all. When attempting to bring the driver back with Snappy Driver, the re-installation always fails and spits back this error code "E0000246". I have also tried numerous times to pull the driver through Device Manager and the driver fails every time claiming that one of the installers can not perform the installation at this time. Hopefully someone can help me straighten the dumb thing out, I miss having sound. Thanks!

See if installing this W10 IDT audio driver and restarting the PC, gets the sound to work again...

Sorry that didn't work.
There is only one other thing I can think of that you can try to get the sound back.
Go to the device manager and click to expand the Sound, video and game controllers device category.
1. Select IDT High Definition Audio CODEC under that category.
2. Select Driver tab.
3. Click Update Driver... button.
4. Select -> Browse my computer for driver software.
5. Select -> Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer.
6. Select High Definition Audio Device (Not IDT High Def... this is important.) and click Next.
A warning message may appear, but click Yes.
7. Windows has successfully update your driver software.
8. Restart the PC.
The key is step 6.
If that doesn't work either, I recommend you buy a cheap PCIe x1 audio card that has support for W10.

Also, while I am thinking of it, would this board be able to just plug in on my motherboard and run on one of the rear expansion ports? Thanks!
