There are three methods you can update your Realtek audio drivers. You start at the top and work your way down, or use the one that will save your much tim
Method 1: Update the Realtek audio driver via Device Manager
Method 2: Download and install the Realtek audio driver from manufacturers
Method 3: Automatically update the Realtek audio driver (recommended)
1) Go to Device Manager.
2) Expand category “Sound, video and game controllers”. Under this category, right-click on “Realtek High Definition Audio”. Click Update Driver Software…on the context menu.
3) Click Search automatically for updated driver software (Different systems may have different displays here.).
If the driver is up-to-date, you will be prompted that “The best driver software for your device is already installed”. Then you don’t need to update the driver.
5. After the driver is installed, restart your PC for the changes to take effort.
You can find and download the latest driver on Realtek website.
After you go to the website, Click High Definition Audio Codecs (Software). Follow the on-screen instructions and download the correct driver corresponding with the version of Windows. Then double click on the downloaded file to install the driver.
