Hi:

 

You will have to reinstall the Realtek audio driver from your notebook's support page.

 

That just happened to me when I upgraded my PC's with the Realtek audio to the latest W10 (Creators Edition) version.

 

The Realtek HD audio got replaced with the generic Microsoft HD audio device.

 

That also happened to my old PC with the ADI Soundmax audio.  I had to reinstall the W7 Soudmax driver and on my one HP 350 G1 notebook, it did the same thing to the IDT HD audio driver, and I had to reinstall the W8.1 IDT audio driver for that too.

You're very welcome.

 

I don't recall that happening to me on the other W10 updates.

 

Oh well, at least it was an easy fix!
