This is my first post so I'm really sorry if it's in the wrong place but I've just about given up hope of sorting this out on my own. I've downloaded the .bin file for the latest Realtek audio driver from Windows Update Catalogue and have all of the files out of the .bin, but cannot for the life of me work out how to install the new drivers. With some googling I've seen all sorts about manually placing them in the Windows folder and running console commands but from reading some posts here I'm convinced there's something I'm missing.
Again, sorry if this isn't the right place to post but I'm almost at my wits end! Thanks for any help in advance
Go to Device manager > Sound Video and Game Controllers > Realtek High definition Audio > Update driver and point it to the folder you opened .BIN to.
For any driver to install in W10 or any other windows there has to be .INF file it reads from and installs driver with it's files and registry settings according to what's in .INF file.
You can view contents of .INF file with a text editor.
Oh my god, do I ever feel stupid - this whole time I was trying to do it via the Audio section (so essentially directly on my speakers) and not the Sound Video and Game Controllers - a good hour and a half of stupidity later and the drivers are up to date. Thank you! *facepalm*
We'll see - I'm downloading another one from the Realtek FTP but it's going rather slow. The driver version lists as one from October but I'm going to try and get 7738 going once it is done.
Actually, whilst I'm here - I wonder if you might have any insight as to my issue that took me down the audio driver rabbit hole! My Game DVR is just refusing to record any sound when I try and capture clips from my games and it never ever has. I'm not sure if it could be a driver issue or something else, but I feel like I've tried everything to try and solve this issue bar updating the drivers. Google has been helpful in suggesting a couple of suggestions but so far none of 'em have helped...
Sorry, not a gamer and no experience with those thingies. Maybe you could pose the question in Games section.
I have recently installed an update for my BIOS settings and since then, I cannot find my Realtek HD Audio manager in my control panel...
I do not have any 'on-board sound' option in my BIOS settings to enable. I have tried installing (with proper pre-uninstalling) R277, no go. R2778, no go. R2779 no go... I have tried then installing 7738 from the ftp. Still no go. The control panel doesn't show up in my windows control panel anywhere. When I go to Program Files/Realtek/Audio/HDA and try to run any of the .exe files there, they simply do not run. The only one that does is this, and this is how it 'looks' like...
Help me please? I really need the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel.
Hey guys, I already have 18.104.22.16860 version from AsRock(manufacturer of my motherboard).
Now I downloaded from open post, the last updated 64bit version from the Microsoft Catalog. Then I tried to extract the archive with WinRar, but it seems to be broken. I tried various times with no success.
EDIT: Ok, done. For some weird reason, I had to double click on the compressed file, then inside the WinRar screen, had to select "extract".
