Re: creators update deleted my realtek audio, and now stuck with crappy soundblaster recon3di

You can restore the lack of volume with SoundBlaster by accessing the program, adjust settings, and then save as a profile.

I had the same issue when I upgraded and resetting the SB profile restored all sound.

The Realtek issue seems to be common. A search on Google found these suggestions.
