ASUS Maximus Z790 Extreme NO AUDIO From Backplane (No Realtek Device Found)
Just finished a new build and I cannot get sound out of the motherboard backplane jack. I've also confirmed that my windows 11 install does not have any acknowledgment of a realtek audio device within the device manager.
I have tried installing all the latest audio drivers as perscribed by the ASUS motherboard website.
Additionally I have tried the recommended driver by MoKiChU on this very forum.
At this point I've run out of ideas and am now seriously considering a defective motherboard.
Any guidance/help would be greatly appreciated.
CPU: Intel Core i9-13900K

When installed, it will appear under Sound, video and game controllers. You have a device there that failed to start. If you disabled USB Audio in the UEFI, does this device disappear?
Redownload the latest UEFI version and use USB Flashback
