Nvidia is probably licensing the technology from Realtek and integrating
that into their chipset, using it as a little extra advertisement at the
OS level.

Try something different if you don't make any headway.  Go to

And get the latest drivers.  The sound code is better quality and you
actually get support.  Doesn't cost anything.  Basically higher quality
for free.
