Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
I think I'll go with the update from Realtek's website.
Let me know, anyone, how it sounds?
It's a no go for me as well. These drivers 8037 will not install. I'm sticking with 8029 until further notice.
8037 is removed from MUC when I just checked, and the Realtek site is down for me currently. lol
Anyway, was using 8018, and just installed 8029 which sounds as good/even better, I think.

I see it:
Microsoft Update Catalog
I downloaded the 22.214.171.12436 update from the Realtek website and it sounds great on my system.
I have no idea if 126.96.36.19937 is any better or if I can actually get it to update via cab. I see that a few of you say it won't work.
I will create a restore point then try and see if 8037 works for me.
“Windows has determined the driver software for your device is up to date”
So yeah, like everyone else, 8037 is also not working for me. But, I have 8036 installed so it really doesn't affect me.

The best is either download directly from Realtek site or update through Windows Update. If you see no new updates, probably any newer driver is not intended for your hardware. If you download it from Microsoft Update Catalog and force-install it from Device Manager it might work but missing features. Or it may not work at all. So either download latest driver from Realtek or from Windows Update, avoid forcing drivers from MUC unless your hardware is not working properly.
I always get the latest update from MUC and unzip and install i have never had a issue or missing features .
Realtek's website seems to be down for me.
The site is hit or miss. I downloaded the driver from softpedia.
It's true that sometimes it takes too long to download anything from Realtek that makes you think you are connected to an old 56K modem instead of ADSL or VDSL! That's why I keep most common drivers in my Flash drive so they are available instantly for installation to a customer without losing valuable time to download them.

New RealTek HD Audio Driver available in WU.
My ASUS M4N68T-M V2 has a VIA VT1708S onboard audio. The driver I have that worked in Windows 8.1 v10_1200a won't work in 10. Windows doesn't even see the onboard video so it doesn't even look for a driver. It doesn't show up in device manager. In...
