Just in the process of downloading 18.104.22.16890 as I wondered if it will stop a 'problem' I have been getting while I have been using 22.214.171.12484?
The 'problem' is that whenever I get a Microsoft Update to my x64 Win 10 Laptop after the update has installed and the machine re-starts the Audio Key ceases to function! Grrrrr!!
So I end up re-installing 126.96.36.19984 x64 Edition and all is well again, BUT after this has happened a number of times it is starting to get annoying!
So I hope someone can answer the question please?
I would have to go right back to the day I got the Laptop and started it up, which was before Microsoft started 'dumping' all it's 'secret' updates onto the machine and caused at some stage the 'problem' to happen, as well as installing software that I didn't need or want.
While I got the 188.8.131.5290 version on the Forum, just before that I also downloaded from the Realtek website a version that is called '0006-64bit _Win7_8_81_10_R279'
In 'Properties' it just shows up as Version R2.79, but as I cannot find any more info I am not sure if this was released before or after 184.108.40.20650 and if it will work.
R2.79 is an old one, from couple of years ago.
7590 Install Update!
I ran this firstly NOT in an Administrator capacity and then as it didn't work properly, as it failed to Install Automatically after removal and rebooting, so I tried running it in Administrator mode which also failed to Automatically Install after restarting the laptop.
So currently I have a version 220.127.116.1130 Driver installed that is dated 26/01/2016 that I think was the original when the laptop was built by HP!
So now I am back to 'square 1' and didn't have to Uninstall all the Microsoft Updates to get there.
In reading another Thread it seems that Windows is jumping in before the Automatic Install has kicked in and installing the initial version of the Driver namely 18.104.22.16830.
While if that is the case then I am not sure how I can update the Driver to that contained in 7950?
Any help on that point would be appreciated.
Just thinking aloud, are you signed in as administrator ? Or maybe it needs drivers from HP directly ? I know that they like to make things "special" just for their products.
