    It looks like you're trying to run the RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.ps1 from your desktop, but the file is not there.
    So you need to locate the ps1 you downloaded from here and copy/move it on your desktop and then run the commands:
    Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process
    cd $env:USERPROFILE\Desktop
    .\RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.ps1
    Hey Thanks a lot for your taking the time to reply. You know, I copied my desktop from what I believe is the Realtek Audio driver integration script that i'm just copying here and have it opened in Notebook and it's from the desktop folder where i parked it so, should i just put my computer name in the USERPROFILE\Desktop etc....?? And i currently have the UAD drivers on this computer and i'm not so sure even if the HDA drivers will work or if Lenovo doesn't accommodate those drivers....

    The script, as specified in the first post, is written to identify the legacy HDA Realtek drivers integration and not the UAD ones.

    then it's best for leis not to use the RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.ps1 on his Lenovo computer because Lenovo chose to use UAD drivers and not HDA drivers. best for him to stay put in using the manufacturer based Realtek audio drivers which are in UAD format. switching from UAD to HDA on there is like progressing backwards (think of "de-evolution")

    I asked him in another thread to post the hardware ID number of the Realtek audio chip on his computer, which I'm still waiting for.

    I'm currently doing some in-place upgrades on some of my PCs to win10 v1909 build 18363.356 (and then will update with KB4517211 to build 18363.387), which will take up most of my time for now.

    Thank you very much for your help. I suppose the second one (8799_FF00_PG473_Win10_RS3_RS4_RS5_19H1_Win7_WHQL.zip) is the one I should download, right? Because the other one is 8799.1, but there's no FF in its name.
    that's correct. use only the 8799 FF00 HDA driver because the other driver packages (which are UAD only and are manufacturer specific or hardware ID specific) for 8799 are not compatible with your computer. HDA or nonUAD FFxx based drivers have many INF files and should work on your computer.

    you're welcome melkiadeswin10.
    I really don't want users to fully depend on the RealtekAudioDriverIntegration.ps1 powershell script because it's seriously flawed and needs major improvements. plus it may not work on certain machines that have Realtek audio hardware with weird or "obscure" HWIDs (and that's one of the reasons why that script crashes on a few systems)

    First go to this site on obtaining / finding the hardware ID number of the Realtek audio device:
    How to Find Hardware ID: 9 Steps (with Pictures) - wikiHow
    (ex. if the hardware ID on my relative's Dell Inspiron 580 desktop PC is "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0887&SUBSYS_10280438" and that ID is listed in the HDXTHXD.inf file [because that INF file indicates it may be installing Creative integration files], I'd get an FF10 based HDA driver)
    Use an FF10 HDA driver if the Realtek audio driver is installed by the following INF files (and your hardware ID is listed in any of the following INF files these INF files indicate something about Creative):
    HDXCR.inf, HDXMB2H.inf, HDXMB2O.inf, HDXMB3H.inf, HDXMB3HD.inf, HDXMSB3H.inf, HDXSBC3H.inf, HDXSBCH .inf, HDXTHX.inf, HDXTHX2.inf & HDXTHXD.inf

    Use an FF03 HDA driver if the Realtek audio driver is installed by the following INF files (and your hardware ID is listed in any of the following INF files - these INF files indicate that it may install Nahimic integration files):
    HDXAsNahi.inf, HDXASNahimic.inf, HDXDNHM.inf, HDXMSIESS.inf

    Use an FF04 HDA driver if using Realtek audio on many Compaq / Hewlett-Packard PCs (and your hardware ID is listed in any of the following INF files; SUBSYS or SubSystem IDs beginning with "103C" - SUBSYS_103Cnnnn):

    HDX861A.inf, HDXBPCAI.inf, HDXBPCAS.inf, HDXBPCASOld.inf, HDXCPC.inf, HDXCPCold.inf, HDXHAPHPNB.INF, HDXHPAI1.inf, HDXHPAI2.inf, HDXHPAI3.inf, HDXHPAI4.inf, HDXHPAI4_IMA.inf, HDXHPbNB.INF, HDXHPbNBold.INF, HDXHPBPC.INF, HDXHPNBOld.INF, HDXHPNBOld2.INF & HDXHPNBSPAPO.INF

    Use an FF06 HDA driver if the Realtek audio driver is installed by the following INF files (and your hardware ID is listed in any of the following INF files - these INF files indicate that it may install Waves Maxxaudio integration files):

    HDXAMA.inf, HDXAMA3.inf, HDXFJMA.inf, HDXMA7.inf, HDXMATP3.inf, HDXMaxxD.inf, HDXNECMA.inf, HDXSGMA4.inf

    Use an FF01 HDA driver if the Realtek audio driver is installed by the following INF files (and your hardware ID is listed in any of the following INF files - these INF files indicate that it may install Fortemedia integration files - usually IBM/Lenovo machines make use of the Fortemedia files):

    HDXLC.inf, HDXLC2.inf, HDXLC3.inf, HDXLCNB.inf, HDXLVE.inf, HDXLVJ.inf, HDXLVTIC.inf, HDXLVW.inf, HDXXFM.inf

    if the Realtek HDA driver is installed with any other INF file not listed here, go with FF00

    I'm done for now
    to be continued later on...

    new HDA drivers:

    6.0.8821.1 - in both FF00 & FF06 (maxxaudio) editions

    6.0.8816.1 - in both FF00 & FF03 (nahimic) editions

    new "generic" FFxx HDA driver

    6.0.8838.1 in both FF00 & FF01 (fortemedia FMAPO) forms

    realize that traditional/legacy HDA drivers are getting fewer, less frequent updates for the past several months

    Hi guys,

    I was looking for the latest Realtek drivers as my MB is a bit old (Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 - 2014) and the latest drivers released on the Asus website are also a bit old (August 2016), when I found your thread.

    To be honest, identifying my HW was quite easy thanks to your explanations in the first post...
    Realtek Audio Driver Integration log information

    Device HWID: HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_10438608&REV_1000
    Audio CODEC: ALC1150

    Realtek Driver Version: 6.0.1.7848
    HDA Driver Integration: FF00 - no integration (Generic)
    ...but what we could do with this information was much less intuitive

    1st the location of the versions you're all talking about is nearly mentioned nowhere.
    I finally found it in a screen shot after reading 100 posts of this thread.

    But the version I'm supposed to choose is still a bit confusing to me.
    Indeed, for the latest release (6.0.8838.1)...
    - I have the "8838_FF00_FF01_PG474_Win10_RS3_RS4_RS5_19H1_Win7_WHQL.rar" archive, the Generic/FF00 and I'm supposed to need a FF00.
    - But there's also the "8838.1_HDA_UAD_Win10_RS3_RS4_RS5_19H1_X64_ResellASUS_WHQL.zip" specific for Asus, while I have an Asus MB and when I open my current Realtek HD Audio Manager, it's indeed personalized for Asus.
    - This archive seems to include the HDA and UAD drivers?
    - And in this case, what are the other 4 files below... 8838.1_UAD_WHQL_AVO.7z, 8838.1_UAD_WHQL_ICE_RTK.7z, 8838.1_UAD_WHQL_PCH_DMIC.7z and 8838.1_UAD_WHQL_XPERI.7z ?
    - At last, there's also this thread, advising to take the driver from Microsoft with so specific version by FF0X or MB manufacturer...
    Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version [2]

    So ultimately, what am I supposed to choose?

    Thanks for your help!
