Windows 10: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version
I waited months before installing windows 10 in the hope that these sort of bugs would be fixed... Oh well, thanks for the reply, I will just have to wait.
It seems that november is the month to fix it, along with Threshold 2. According to John, the man leading the fix, it will be in the next Insider build.
I'm glad its being worked on.
Hi all! Really nice thread, it helps me a lot to keep my audio device updated.
That said, i have this a problem with Realtek audio and maybe you can help me. The thing is i can listen in stereo and 5.1, no problem, but with a little "sshhh" on the back. For example when i click on the volume icon, i hear de default "ding" sound but with that "sshhh".. like: "dingggg....sssssshhuuuu".
The only think i can do is, whenever i restart my computer, i desable the realtek on System/Device Administator and rightafter i enable it again. Problem solved, no "shhh" thing, but its not the real answer. So it has to be something involving drivers... I use the latest: 188.8.131.5228, any clue??
Thanks in advance!!
Probably related to the drivers power management which will exist in all driver versions as it's a feature, see this:
Fix for Realtek sound popping and/or high pitched tone/squeal | NotebookReview
Thank you very much!! Will keep a look at that fix and let you know
I downloaded and extracted this one and the same thing happened as last time, Windows wouldn't install it because it says I have the best one which is the one on the Realtek site, R2.79. Why aren't these updates appearing on the Realtek site? Are they still sort of betas?
Build 7629 WHQL of the Realtek HD drivers released today.

What you need to do is:
Right click Start -> Programs and Features, select Realtek HD Audio, Uninstall but do not reboot. then run the setup.exe for the one you want to install and it should work. Then the next time, just run the setup.exe program and it should do the install fine.
These updates are appearing on the Realtek site as it's on the ftp (file transfer protocol) site which is like copying a file and does not require html skills. Updating the website takes work and with the frequent updates, it's can be hard work which can be bad if they mess up the website resulting in giving the company a bad image as people might think it is hacked and maybe they have a extremely lazy webmaster for all we know. The WHQL are stabled released versions while there are beta non-WHQL versions. Release version is up to 184.108.40.20629 while Beta version is up to 220.127.116.1133 with the latest beta being in the ftp://ftp3.realtek.com.tw/RealtekHDA...ers/Vista-Beta using the same login/password combo above.
Version 18.104.22.16829 WHQL available from Microsoft Update Catalog so it's in sync with the ftp server:

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...
