Windows 7: Difficulties in downloading latest Realtek Audio Driver

Difficulties in downloading latest Realtek Audio Driver

Hello everyone. I'm not sure if this is just me but when I am downloading the latest Realtek drivers, I am having serious problems. For example, when I open the file, it says along the lines of "Invalid file, please download again" . I've downloaded it twice, using both .zip files and .exe file. I am using Google Chrome. Anyone else having this problem?

hey edster.

I didn't have any problems downloading mine. You might try this one.

Let me know if that didn't work. I'll find you a good driver.

Realteks FTP site sucks, and yes, some drivers are recklessly mal-packed

Thanks Sarah, the download was fast, makes a real change from the Realtek website! The driver makes the sound a little better.

Qdos - Same views mate. I honestly think that both Realtek and SIS websites are the most awful websites ever.

Thanks for your help.
