Driver Problems with ALC1150, DSP, and Windows 10

Having trouble getting a driver installed with your fancy onboard sound card such as the Realtek ALC1150 115dB SNR HD Audio, or any of the new sound cards with onboard DSPs, DACs, and so on in Windows 10?

You may want to check your BIOS to see if there’s an option to the likes of “Audio DSP” and disable that. Once disabled, Windows should properly detect your ALC1150 and install the drivers automatically. It seems as though the drivers haven’t really been updated to support all of the features that the sound cards offer in Windows 10, and only basic Windows 10 support has been included. Hopefully in a few months these driver woes will disappear.
