Help & Info about Realtek HD Audio Drivers for windows

  • Why would I need these Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista if they should already be installed in my computer?

    There are many reasons why you may need to download and install Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista on your computer. A common reason is that your current drivers have been moved, tampered with or corrupted.
  • What should I do before I try manually changing my audio drivers?

    You should look online to see if your drivers are truly the problem. You should create a system restore point, and ideally you should backup your computer on external hard drives. This will allow you to change things back if things go wrong. In addition, if your audio stopped working just recently after you updated something or downloaded something, then you may like to try restoring your computer to a previous point to see if that solves your audio problem.
  • What do I do if the Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista are out of date?

    Once you have installed the software, your Windows computer will start asking you to update your drivers to more recent versions. You will have to do this via the Internet where updated version of your drivers will be downloaded.
  • Can the Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista software replace audio drivers on other version of Windows?

    If you try to install it into more recent versions of Windows, then it will probably reject the installation, or it will start demanding that you update your drivers shortly after having them installed. You may update the drivers via downloads from the Internet.
  • Does it work with 64bit computers?

    The Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista works with 64bit computers, but the Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista software is unable to take full advantage of your computing hardware in the way that a 64bit version would.
  • Is there a RealTek HD Audio codec for 64bit systems?

    The 32bit driver will work with a 64bit computer, but you are better off getting a 64bit version of the audio driver so that the software may use more than one core.
  • Do I have to add the files manually?

    If you have corrupted files and/or other virus/malware or system problems, then you may have to manually replace your corrupted files with your new audio driver files. However, there is a strong chance that you may be able to install your Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista like any other Windows program. The biggest problem may be getting around the fact that your computer thinks you already have a more advanced version of what you are trying to install. If that is the case, you may like to uninstall your old (corrupted) drivers and then install these Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista in their place.
  • Should I reinstall Windows completely rather than try to install the audio drivers?

    There is a good chance that if you uninstall your version of windows and then reinstall a fresh version, then your audio drivers will fix themselves. Before doing this, you may like to back up your computer on an external hard drive.
  • If I update my operating system, will it repair my audio?

    There is a very strong chance that if you do update your Windows operating system to a more recent version of Windows, then your audio drivers will be fine because they will have been replaced with the most recent version. This is not the same as updating your current Windows operating system. Instead, you upgrade from Vista to Windows 7, or your current operating system to Windows 10.
  • What version of the Windows operating system do these drivers work with?

    The Realtek Hd Audio Drivers Vista works with Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. If you try to install it into more recent versions of Windows, then it will probably reject the installation.
