Based on your computer specs, it is NOT possible to install Realtek HD Audio drivers because your HP notebook computer uses ADI (Analog Devices Inc.) Soundmax audio drivers. Attempting to install the Realtek audio drivers will not make your audio work (and your efforts will be in vain). And the hardware device ID for the Soundmax audio hardware is different from the Realtek HD audio hardware. Realtek high definition audio hardware ID begins with HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC while ADI Soundmax HD audio hardware ID begins with HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_11D4. Therefore you must only use ADI Soundmax audio drivers, not Realtek audio drivers.

Realtek High Definition Audio 6.0.1.7318


PS:
You'll have to install from the Device Manager this set of Realtek HDA drivers (no installer). Once downloaded extract the .cab with 7-zip (you can have it within the Sevenforums).

In the Device Manager choose to update Pilote, then point to the extracted folder location.

Enjoy, is a smooth install!!!
I've just recently registered into this forum and there's also a 7318 driver from the MSI web site for those who use MSI notebook computers. This one contains a setup program that will automatically install the Realtek HD Audio 6.0.1.7318 drivers.

I think the best is to stay with official Realtek or Microsoft drivers, on this Forums. Alternate download might confuse many users, but good to know!

That said!

Microsoft Update Catalog have published their own set of drivers 64bits version for Windows 7 , Windows 8.1 and later drivers:

Pilote: Realtek High Definition Audio (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)
Version: 6.0.1.7354
File size: 65,4Mb
Version Date: 30/09/2014.

@NoN-

Don't mean to hijack this thread.

I tried to download the latest driver on IE11, but the message says I need a version higher than IE6!

Also says when I try to upgrade - you have the latest version.

How can I download this latest driver update?

When you go on this Microsoft web site with IE, you're prompt to install active X control in order to download. Refresh you page when active X is installed.

Are you running IE in Compatibility mode? If so, try turning that off when visiting the MS Update Catalog site.
