The first thing that we can try in order to fix the audio problem will be a BIOS update, using the F7 method:
And here is the .BIO file needed for version 0042:
Also, please install the chipset driver:
Besides that you can try to un-install the audio driver and re-install it.
Please let me know the results of trying the steps above.
Any further questions, please let me know.
Thank you Alberto for the promptly response.
I was already on latest BIOS (0042) but missing the Chipset installation.
- Audio driver uninstall
- Install Chipset driver
- Install latest audio driver
This time, 3 of 4 times I've plugged/unplugged the headset from the front-panel, audio option was properly restored (Audio played back normally through DisplayPort)
The other time I had to switch display output (or turn monitor off/on cycle) to get audio again.
Perhaps is an issue with Realtek audio drivers and Windows 10?. Will continue to test and plug my speakers through front-end panel until figure it out (since things become really annoying when audio suddenly disappears).
Marking this as solved since 75% of success might be the best I can get from current situation.
