Windows 7: Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

Windows 7 RC 7100

Nah, still get no sound at all. Starting to think it''s got nothing to do with Realtek at all but maybe some compatibility issue between Win7 and Asus Mobo's.

Did you see my previous post, all I did was start the download in my browser, then paused it and copied the URL and put it on bitcomet (or Utorrent if that's what you use) and it was downloading at up 190Kbps, try it and I'm sure you have the same result.

Windows 7 x64 with SP1

I have downloaded the R2.30 driver and it went fast for me. I will try it tonight on my P5N-E SLI
I have uploaded the driver to for people who can't download it from Realtek
Here is the link: rfsb1ht

I have installed it in Windows 7 x64, on my P5N-E SLI, and it works great. Front panel, jack detection and everything. Asus should put it on their drivers page
