Windows 7: Realtek Sound Drivers

Realtek Sound Drivers


I am trying to install Realtek HD Sound drivers; I have been unable to find any drivers that are written for Windows 7. So I have been downloading the Vista ones without success. I have tried loading them in compatibility mode and under windows vista and xp but each time it just says error during installation or OS not supported.

Does anybody know where I can find Realtek sound drivers for windows 7?

Many thanks,

Win 7 Pro x64, VM Win XP, Win7 Pro Sandbox, Kubuntu 11

The latest version (from my devise manager) from MS is:

Dated: 4/21/2009
Driver Version: 6.1.7100.0
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows

The version "Webadict" is directing you to is:

RELEASE DATE: June 22nd 2009
Driver Version In Device Manager:

As you can see the first is the newest release from MS.

Did a Google search and came up this one: Realtek HD Driver 2.27 (the newest release) Not sure how this will coincide with the latest MS release, however, you might want to give it a go.

Windows 7 Professional X64 Build 7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255)

The latest version (from my devise manager) from MS is:

Dated: 4/21/2009
Driver Version: 6.1.7100.0
Digital Signer: Microsoft Windows
I find that peculiar, when did an "Update Driver" search from Device Manager it showed the Realtek R2.27 version as the latest update available. When I googled it, it v6.1.7100.0 did not show. Also, why would a driver dated 4-20-09 show a new build than one dated 6-22-09?

Just curious is all. :)

Whizkid, Realtek website shows the R2.27 driver as this: Vista, Windows7 Driver(32/64 bits) Driver only (Executable file)
