    My Realtek HD Audio Driver is Missing and I can't reinstall it.


    So, a few days ago, my anti-malware software deleted some stuff. I don't know how or why, but it deleted my Realtek Audio Driver too. I've tried reinstalling it, but it doesn't show up in Device Manager, I've tried to install in manually in Device Manager, but it always crashes my computer, sometimes to the point where I have to reset my computer from scratch in order to get it to work... and even THEN Realtek Audio still isn't there. What should I do? I'm so lost... Please help!

    What is the name of your anti-malware program? Could it have just put the driver in quarantine?

    I'm sorry, but no. I only work on the forums.

    DDU Display Driver Uninstaller Download version 18.0.1.9 now uninstalls sound drivers too. I would uninstall whatever is left from old drivers and reinstall new ones, first drivers from Asus site for your MB and later you can update them.
