keep losing audio drivers

I have an oldie but goodie Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-x

I have installed the latest drivers, I think.

Display driver: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - 2/26/2016 - 15.301.1901.0 - Signer Microsoft

Audio driver: Advanced Micro Devices - 1/16/2016 - - Signer AMD

Also, this morning my board mfg. [MSI] downloaded latest AMD chip drivers.

Both devices working properly per device mgr.

Windows 10 Home Version 2004 - Installed 7/26/20 OS build 19041.508 - Experience pack 120.2212.310

No problems w/video using displayport but my audio is the problem....

On boot audio returns to the onboard (that's not working either, lost it about a month ago, IDK why!).

In the audio selection, I only see the onboard Realtek HD audio, no AMD.

I look at device mgr. the AMD audio device is there and "working properly".

If I uninstall the AMD audio drivers, then rescan for new hardware,

then it becomes available again and works fine, till next reboot.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
