Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
MSI should be : 0x1462
PCI Vendor and Device Lists
One issue to watch out for: if you edit the INF you break the digital signature. That would prevent the driver from being loaded into and installed from the DriverStore. However, earlier user wiggly1uk2000 seemed able to edit an INF after it's been installed (so I think it was in Windows\inf folder at the time) and Windows didn't seem to complain.
You could boot into Test Mode (Do not force driver signature option), install the driver and then boot normally again. Most of the times the unsigned driver is retained and working without any issue. There is a small chance that the unsigned driver is rejected upon normal startup. You just try and see.
The edit was done prior to installation. I then installed via Device Manager as an upgrade over an existing driver and to my surprise Windows did not object! This only worked with a CAB file downloaded from the Microsoft Update Catalog. Trying the same trick with an official Realtek installer did not work for me. This all took place on a Windows 10 Pro (x64) installation, in case that makes a difference somehow.
But what kind of Dell pc do you have? you did not answer that question, billneftleberg.
I, on the other hand, mentioned my aunt's Dell computer, which is an Inspiron 580 desktop PC which I helped my aunt purchase at Best Buy in the spring of year 2011. The Realtek audio device on the Inspiron 580 gets installed normally thru the HDXTHXD.inf file, which installs not only the RTKVHD64.sys file, but also the MBFilt64.sys file and certain Creative APO resource DLL files, turning the Realtek audio into a virtual "Sound Blaster X-FI MB" device. After installing the Realtek audio drivers, I install either the Sound Blaster X-FI MB2 or Creative THX Trustudio PC software because the Realtek audio device can actually support either one of them.
The shortened Realtek audio name change seemed to happen around build 7650 & higher - I forgot where the change occured [perhaps the folks at Dell requested to the folks at Realtek the name change]
Note to ComputerGeek & CountMike: the interface can also be chosen by using a different INF file sometimes (if the Realtek HD audio was setup thru an INF file other than the HDXRT.inf file).
Check the PCIDatabase.com site for more Vendor IDs [ex. 1179 - ID for Toshiba, 103C - HP/Compaq, 1043 - ASUS]
Can't choose different .inf file. Tried all of them on multiple drivers and results are usually "HW not found" or "W.... determined best driver is already installed"
what is your HW ID for your Realtek audio device, CountMike?
Open Device Manager, expand the Sound, video and game controllers section, double-click on Reatlek High Definition Audio, click on the Details tab and change the Property from Device Description to Hardware IDs.
You can only do this on certain Realtek audio devices, and it doesn't work on most of them if the audio drivers are normally installed thru the HDXRT.INF file.
I usually delete all the other INF files because I don't need them - slightly reduces the setup time.
Inf File = oem14.inf
Could you be more specific. What are you trying to accomplish?
I just downloaded the Realtek 22.214.171.12451 release
- File: 5a04dfb7-bc20-4b85-9a1c-a14b34d23ac7_a835337ba4f17e6fa7d392a3d9deaeb4fd2c698a.cab
- It includes a total 95 INF files
- Of those, when I search for .inf files containing string SUBSYS_1462 it finds15 INF files
I interpret that to mean there are 15 different possible Realtek HD audio installations for MSI boards. Just what are you trying to do?
I'm trying to get features and looks of MSI, Acer or Asus. They all get equalizer and effects, Gigabyte driver doesn't have that.
Hello : I have my realtek driver tweaked in windows 7 , I have it set in the registry to have 2 outputs , instead of one - will the new win 10 driver be able to be adjusted ...

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...
