Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

  1.    11 Jun 2018 #1011

    Hey guys, any advice on how to roll back to an old version? I want to try the popular 8447 version, and I downloaded the
    "Windows 10 version 1803 and Later Servicing Drivers" 138,4 MB one from here Microsoft Update Catalog
    Tried to install with usual procedure, but it says "best drivers for your device are already installed". Also uninstalling the latest version, and try to install 8447 one, gives me same message.
    Maybe it's the wrong link? I have Win10 x64 version 1803, but I can see multiple downloads for 1803 version

    It's real easy to roll back to a previous driver:

    For 8447, try the 127.0 MB option:

    Yes, thanks. I know the roll back feature of Windows, but it restores a very old and generic release.
    I meant an actual "real" roll back to driver 8447. Windows keep not allow me to install 8447, even if I choose 127 MB option.
    It keep saying "best drivers for your device are already installed"
    No problems to install 8454 and 8459. Odd

    You need to delete the Realtek drivers from the driverstore.

    To do that follow these steps:

    1. To take a list of all drivers and find the driver you want to change. From the list make a note of the oemxx.inf filenames of the installed Realtek drivers. You might have two drivers: The current driver and the one you can rollback to. They both exist in the driverstore.
    From an elevated command prompt run the command:
    Code:
    pnputil /enum-drivers

    2. Backup the installed Realtek drivers, where XX=the driver numbers of the Realtek drivers from step 1.
    First, create a folder for each of the installed Realtek drivers, (if you have more than one, the current and the one to rollback to) found in step 1.
    Run the command for each of the drivers in the driverstore. (run it once or twice, depending on the number of drivers you currently have)
    Code:
    pnputil /export-driver oemXX.inf <Realtek Backup folder>
    example: If the current driver is oem12.inf and the backup folder you created is in your desktop the folder RTLBackup1, the command should be:
    pnputil /export-driver oem12.inf %userprofile\Desktop\RTLBackup1

    3. Remove the drivers, where XX=the driver numbers of the Realtek drivers from step 1 (run it once or twice depending on the number of drivers you currently have)
    Code:
    pnputil /delete-driver oemXX.inf /force

    4. Go to Device Manager, find the Realtek Audio device and install the driver you want, by selecting Update driver and selecting to get the driver from your PC, in the folder where you have unpacked the cab file from Microsoft Update Catalog.


    5. When done, and everything is according to what you want, you can delete the driver backup folders you created in step 2

    EDIT: Alternatively as @DooGie suggested you can use DriverStore Explorer [RAPR], a free third party application to do the same thing, in a GUI.

    Ok, so I have had a set of Klipsch surround speaker with the pod controller hooked up before and they all worked.
    Sadly the pod went bad and the cost wasn't worth it.
    I've got several sets of speakers from previous computers "I never get rid of some stuff" and I've tried and tried to get the sound out of at least the front and rears with many audio programs. They never work.
    I can reassign the jacks in a variety of ways, I can get sound from all speakers in the windows test, but not from any other software.

    I had the 6.0.1.8454 and am updating to the .8459, but this will be the 3rd or 4th driver update in the past week or so.
    If this doesn't work, any ideas as to why the sound test works, but no players do? WMP, iTunes, VLC, even in a youtube video, only sound from front set.

    They are all logitech the current front set has it's own sub, I've tried every possible way to connect them, front jacks, rear jacks, and always the same result.

    I saw a really nice pair of Altec Lansing surrounds recently at $58 for 250W, but I won't spend the time and effort if I cant get these simple ones to work as they should.
