    You gonna have to try and see, but what's wrong switching to some previous version where everything worked right ?
    Oh were life that simple!
    I would have to go right back to the day I got the Laptop and started it up, which was before Microsoft started 'dumping' all it's 'secret' updates onto the machine and caused at some stage the 'problem' to happen, as well as installing software that I didn't need or want.

    While I got the 6.0.1.7590 version on the Forum, just before that I also downloaded from the Realtek website a version that is called '0006-64bit _Win7_8_81_10_R279'

    In 'Properties' it just shows up as Version R2.79, but as I cannot find any more info I am not sure if this was released before or after 6.0.1.7950 and if it will work.

    R2.79 is an old one, from couple of years ago.

    Thanks for that information.
    That's one file that will be consigned to the Recycle Bin forthwith!

    Seems a bit daft that Realtek put it on their website in Downloads as the latest.

    I guess we will have to try 7590 and see what happens!

    7590 Install Update!

    I ran this firstly NOT in an Administrator capacity and then as it didn't work properly, as it failed to Install Automatically after removal and rebooting, so I tried running it in Administrator mode which also failed to Automatically Install after restarting the laptop.

    So currently I have a version 6.0.1.7330 Driver installed that is dated 26/01/2016 that I think was the original when the laptop was built by HP!

    So now I am back to 'square 1' and didn't have to Uninstall all the Microsoft Updates to get there.

    In reading another Thread it seems that Windows is jumping in before the Automatic Install has kicked in and installing the initial version of the Driver namely 6.0.1.7330.

    While if that is the case then I am not sure how I can update the Driver to that contained in 7950?
    Any help on that point would be appreciated.

    Just thinking aloud, are you signed in as administrator ? Or maybe it needs drivers from HP directly ? I know that they like to make things "special" just for their products.

    Yes they are as bad as Dell in that respect.

    Have you tried disabling automatic driver updates in Windows.

    Firstly an apology for a typing error.......6.0.1.7330.........should have been written as 6.0.1.7730 while that driver is dated 26/01/2016

    CountMike........
    'Yes' I am signed in as an 'Administrator'.
    However the security level I have set on User Account Control 'settings' means I have to 'authorise' a program to run as Administrator.

    Doogie.......
    'No' I have not yet 'disabled' automatic driver updates in Windows, but have just downloaded both the files from the link you provided with a view to trying them to see if it makes a difference when I run the 7590 Driver.

    Having said that.
    By disabling automatic driver updates I would have thought that would only cover future updates that are included as part of a Windows Update and not when trying to carry out a Manual Driver Update?

    Hi Traveller11, you keep mentioning 7590 driver, do you mean 7950 which is one of the latest?
    A lot of us on here disable automatic driver updates in Windows as Windows has the annoying habit of updating your drivers to an earlier version than the one you are actully using.
    Most users including myself go to the hardware manufacturer's sit for driver updates. For instance if I want the latest Nvidia driver I go to the Nvidia servers and check out if there is a newer version than the one I'm currently using.
    In response to your last question, yes it can affect a manual update, Windows detects you are installing a driver and rushes off to the Microsoft server and installs what it thinks you should have, not always what you want.

    Hi DooGie,
    Once again I must apologise as i seem to keep getting the numbers 'muxed' up!
    Yes I do mean 7950

    I did go to the Realtek website thinking that they would have the latest driver in their Support/Download section and was provided with a driver named R2.79 which CountMike has told me is from a couple of years ago, so that got consigned to the Re-cycle Bin and erased while not being tried!

    I will disable the Automatic Driver Update in Windows using the File that you provided the link to the Thread for and see what happens when I then try to run the 7950 Driver Update.

    Interestingly when I ran 7950 it Uninstalled the Audio Driver that was present, and when the laptop was re-started via the program, the Speaker Icon was 'disabled' with a label that said 'No Audio Installed'.
    A couple of minutes later I got a small screen came up with a rectangular box on it and a green light on one side that was installing the Realtek Audio Driver but it was not the driver in 7950, as I ended up with 6.0.1.7730 so I guess Microsoft/Windows disabled the Realtek 7950 Update.

    I will get back and let you know what happened after running the Disable Automatic Driver Updates and running the 7950 Update.

    Thanks
