I have a Toshiba Satellite C855-226 which is still a loyal device. Since the last Windows update the audio icon is being displayed as a red circle with an X inside over the speaker.
By now I've followed the advice of a variety of forums. So far, none of them have been working and I'm too much of a noob to figure this out on my own. Turned off and on drivers. Uninstalled and reinstalled if possible. Tried "legacy" under "actions" but when installing that data it went BSOD on me. Now I've uninstalled the Realtek driver. It got replaced by "High Definition audio device". I can't find the Realtek driver anymore since the Toshiba website doesn't recognize the C855-226.
Am I taking the correct path by reinstalling Realtek? If so, where do I find the applicable driver for a C855-226 operating on Windows 10? If this isn't the correct course of action, what the bleep do I do?
ps: there are two drivers listed under audio drivers: High Definition audio driver and Intel(R) display audio. No idea if that's conflicting somehow. Before that it was RealTek and Intel.
