Updating realtek

21 May

(NVidia graphic drivers are a perfect example of new drivers possibly inducing problems.) I know at least the first issue (which i also gratefully found the solution for) have already been talked a lot about, not sure about the other, but after going through numerous threads and pages on this forum that have to do with this subject, i still feel pretty confused, hence the new topic. EDIT: Forgot about this thread, but i've had no issues to speak of after updating as of yet.

when ever I install drivers I always make a windows restore point , so if the new driver is not as good as the previous driver I can easily go back to the original driver I had.

I have a Jabra bluetooth speaker (the Solemate Mini).

On Windows 8.1 I plug it in to my laptop using the 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable and then, when I watch a movie, it correctly outputs to the speaker and does not use my laptop speakers....

Once you’ve downloaded the correct drivers for your system, double-click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers. Click the Update button next to the Realtek driver to automatically download and install the correct version of this driver (you can do this with the FREE version).

You start at the top and work your way down, or use the one that will save your much tim Method 1: Update the Driver via Device Manager Method 2: Download and Install the Driver from Manufacturer Method 3: Automatically Update the Driver (Recommended) 1. Under this category, right-click on “Realtek High Definition Audio”. If the driver is up-to-date, you will be prompted that “The best driver software for your device is already installed”. You can find and download the latest driver on Realtek website.

I have another problem though: When i mute the sound while using my ATH-m50x headphones, i hear some (most often pretty faint, but still audible) "white" noise in the background, which disappears if i "unmute" again. I seem to have no problems otherwise (i don't use Maxx Audio or anything like that, only the regular Realtek HD-sound configuration "wizard", with no extra settings).Now, the thing is that my current driver version is "7335" and the latest seem to be "7432", and i'm a bit reluctant to update the driver since when it comes to drivers, i've learned that the classical "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"-saying is more relevant than ever (when it comes to drivers), the noise generated when muting sound is relativately minor, and i almost never use the built in speakers, so there almost seems like there is no reason to update.Does anybody have any input on whether an update would only be beneficial, or if it can possibly induce problems?Realtek released its Windows 10 drivers about a month before Windows 10 was launched.To get them, you need to go to the Realtek website, find the drivers corresponding with your specific flavor of Windows 10 (32 or 64 bit) and download the driver manually.
