If you tell device manager to show hidden devices there should be an MS HD Audio device that needs removing, once you've done that you should be able to install the Realtek drivers properly.

If it is showing as a MS or Microsoft HD audio device and has an issue then that is the one that needs deleting.

Post a screengrab of the device manager and I'll be able to tell you.

Just delete it and attempt to install the realtek drivers again.
