I'm using an ASROCK H61M-HVS with VIA HD onboard audio. Noticed that the default drivers windows installs for it are completely fucked. Enhancements don't work at all, and it keeps defaulting to headphones (front jack) even when you only have speakers plugged in.
To fix;
  1. Right click your start button, click system, and then go to advanced system settings
  2. Go to hardware tab and go to device installation settings
  3. Click no, then click Never install device software, then click okay.
  4. Open Device Manager
  5. Go under the sound field, select VIA HD Audio, and uninstall the driver, then restart your computer.
  6. Go to - download the .diagcab file. (Windows 10 has removed the ability to blacklist updates without using this file)
  7. Go through the steps and choose to ignore the VIA HD Audio update that is queued up.
Congratulations, your sound drivers now work properly.

Update for Windows 10 Threshold - 15NOV15
  1. Open device manager
  2. Go under Sound, Video, and Game Controllers
  3. Open VIA HD Audio, click uninstall
  4. Click action, scan for new hardware changes
  5. Wait for VIA HD audio to show up again
  6. Open VIA HD Audio, go to second tab
  7. Rollback drivers
  8. Open wushowhide
  9. Blacklist VIA HD Audio update
