Windows 7: Can't install Realtek drivers

Can't install Realtek drivers

Hi all

I recently got a new computer with HP Beats audio and IDT audio driver.
Both of them suck; HP Beats audio=worst ever audio configuration screen.
So I wanted to install Realtek, because they rock.
I downloaded the latest Realtek HD driver on the Realtek website.
And installed it, atleast that is what I tried. After the installation it restarted and there was no driver.
It showed up in the program's list of your configuration screen (dunno it English name, I'm Dutch). But when I search for it in the start menu I get no results. When I go to the driver folder of realtek (programfiles(x86)\Realtek\Audio) there is just an update file. Witch I cant run.

In my device manager I have an IDT HD codec and about 3-4 Nvidia drivers (why?) and a
"WinTV DVB-T (Model 133xxx)", but no Realtek.

Please help me, think I can provide screen shots and other data.
Thanks in advance

What MB do you have? Are you using the integrated sound card, or a PCI card? Did it come with RealTek codec (the MB). You can download drivers all day, but if you don't have the software/hardware on your system for them they won't work.

Sidiox , I may be totally wrong here but does the beats audio run on realtek drivers, I was under the impression the audio was a collaboration of intel and HP ?

I think you're right Pebbly.

I recently gave my HP Pavilion with Beats audio to one of my grandchildren and I don't recall it using Realtek hardware.

I dont exactly know what you mean.
But if you think HP Beats has the realtek driver then I think you are wrong. When I bought this computer it had no Realtek, just IDT and Hp Beats.

Also as I said before the map drivers from Realtek (after installing) is empty (only update file/program).

And well I dont like Hp Beats, the sound is great but the controle screen is messed up.

Sidiox, we are suggesting that HP Beats does NOT use Realtek audio.
