Updating realtek audio driver
Hello out there; first time on this forum, but first time I've hit a problem I can't seem to find a working solution for, so I hope someone can help.
I've seen similar issues, and tried multiple solutions, but so far nothing has changed.
Select Delete the driver software for this device checkbox and then Yes button when you see the confirmation dialog to go ahead and uninstall the device driver. Download the latest version of the audio driver from your PC manufacturer’s website and run the installer to install the same.
If you cannot find the audio or sound driver on your PC manufacturer’s website, search the web to get the latest version of the driver.
If none of these methods help, you can then try out reinstalling the audio device driver.If you know the PC’s model number, finding the device driver is quite easy.Between, you can download general version of Realtek audio driver from the following link: Download Realtek audio driver Try the Realtek HD audio codecs first. If it fails to install or work, download Realtek AC’97 Audio Codecs.IMPORTANT: Do note down name and version of the audio driver before uninstalling them so you can easily download the right version of the audio driver.To check the version, please refer to our how to check driver version number guide.Once a free driver scan has identified software which is out of date, it will search a comprehensive database of official drivers and download the latest updates for each component.The software will then automatically update your PC and optimize the performance of your system.Step 1: Right-click on the Start button in the taskbar area and then click Device Manager to open the same.Step 2: In the Device Manager, expand Sound, video and game controllers. Most likely you have Realtek High Definition Audio.I don't even have the orange icon in my taskbar, just a black-and-white icon that does nothing.The Realtek HD Audio Manager works great, except I can't access the Control Panel to fix my problems.
