    Realtek Audio drivers for Win7 Asus z690e


    I have pretty much everything working on Win7. Handful of drivers that are yellow but the only one that is affecting me is that I can't use any of the analog audio jacks, back or front. Anyone point me in the direction of a driver for this?

    Seems I am in seven forums. I was confused because this is generally the place I'm not automatically told it cant or shouldn't be done.

    All for God sakes, I missed the title. Let me see if I can find a driver.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yep, Asus only supports 10 and 11. ROG STRIX Z690-E GAMING WIFI | Gaming motherboards|ROG - Republic of Gamers|ROG Global

    You're gonna need a hacked driver. No audio on Z690 - Windows 7 - MSFN

    Also, since you mention a handful of drivers are not installed, you're REALLY gonna need hacked drivers. Windows 7 support for motherboard stopped in about 2017... Read my signature below.

    Everything seems to work so any drivers I'm missing is fine. In the mean time I've found a workaround for my needs that isn't perfect but pretty close so it should be fine. I appreciate you checking!

    nope. a "hacked" driver won't cut it and won't work for OP's Z690-E board as it may not even load under Win7.

    The Realtek ALC4080 usb audio chipset was produced & released to manufacturers in early spring 2020 when Win7 was mostly EOL'ed at that point.
    best for OP to connect an external usb audio device or plug in an internal discrete 3rd party sound card that has working Win7 drivers

    I have Benq monitors that use HDMI and have a headphone out which I plugged my 2.1 speakers into. And can plug headphones into those if needed. I have a USB microphone and do not need multichannel surround out of my mobo since the 3rd Hdmi goes to a 7.1 home theatre system.

    And should for some reason I deem this setup not enough in the future I can buy a separate sound card for around $50.
