  1. I have a laptop with the Realtek high definition audio and Dolby home theater installed. After the latest win8.1 update the Realtek program has stopped forwarding the sound through the Dolby program (which it managed to do perfectly before the upgrade). I tried using Viper4Windows too but that didn't work eighter. Is there an option anywhere that will allow me to fix this?

    Are there any yellow (!) in the device manager?

    No, nothing at all

    You have a couple of options, but I think only one will work here. Go to PC Settings. Select Update & Recovery, Recovery. You can try the first option, but the Remove Everything and Reinstall Windows may be the best...

    Thanks for helping. Didn't really want to get rid of everything but I guess it's the only way.
