    RealTek Manager & Drivers missing.

    Using Dell Latitude windows 10.

    I went to RealTek site:
    Installed Realtek 64bits drivers.

    After a successful install and restart, I still do not see Realtek Manager or Drivers.
    In Device Manager:
    Audio Inputs & Outputs:
    Speaker High Definition\Properties\Microsoft Driver 10.0.10586.0. Dated10-29-2015.

    Sound Video & Game Controller\Microsoft:
    High Definition Audio Device\Microsoft Driver 10.0.10586.0. Dated 10-29-2015
    Intel(R) Display Audio\Intel Corporation\ Driver Dated 9-9-2014

    RealTek could not be found in Control Panel search.
    Did not find RealTek in System Tray or Startup.

    Not sure (if/when) I installed Intel(R). Did Intel(R) come with Windows 10 build?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Media stuttering resulting in BSOD

    Hi, The driver that appears to be causing the crash is the rtwlane.sys which is a driver for the Realtek wireless. According to the System Information you provided the present driver version for the Realtek wireless is 2023.54.331.2017 Try updating to
    the latest version available from Realtek (2023.56.0502.2017): Realtek If you still have issues after updating the driver can you determine the version
    that are available from the Device Manager: In the Device Manager expand "Network adapters" and right-click the Realtek wireless adapter > Update driver > Browse my computer for driver software > Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer What
    is listed under Model (with "Show compatible hardware" "checked") ? What are the versions listed?

    Download a newer version of the driver from the realtek website, install it and check if the sound comes back.


    If not, uninstall the realtek Driver by:

    • Open device manager
    • Sound Video and Game controllers
    • Right click realtek high definition audio device and select uninstall driver software
    • Make sure the checkbox "Delete the device software for this device is checked"
    Check if it helps.Do reply back with the results.

    Realtek did not install. HIgh Defintion Audio Device is the generic, basic function, Windows installed sound driver. It is installed if the hardware drivers (e.g. Realtek) are not found. Are you sure you have Realtek? What Model Dell Latitude do you have?

    The Intel Display Audio is for HDMI audio.

    I have a Dell Latitude E5530 non-vProX64 based PC. Windows 10.
    If you check my link above, it will go to the Download Webpage. I selected 64bits.

    I went toMicrosoft Update Catalog as you instructed.
    There are 38pages on MUC referencing “RealTek”.
    Since I neverhad Realtek installed, I'm not sure which RealTek audio Drivers Ineed.
    I would like tohave RealTek Audio Manager installed on my Dell E5530 model.

    I also have aDell Xps13 laptop using “RealTek HW Auto Codec” drivers thatworks perfect.
    But I cannotfind anything on the net listing RealTek drivers compatible to DellE5530.
    Do you have anyidea, how I can identify the correct ReralTek driver(s) for my model.

    According to the Dell downloads you have IDT Audio and NOT Realtek and the reason it is not installing.
    Here is the link to the IDT audio driver download on the Dell site.

    In that case, you are lucky IMO. I have just spent a couple of weeks trying to prevent the Realtek driver from automatically installing on my desktop. The Microsoft driver takes up less resources and sounds much better. The Realtek driver has a very annoying and distracting habit, on my machine at least, to halve the volume on louder sections of music. The only way I can describe it is like an automatic level control, that can't be switched off, except that during following quieter sections of the track, the volume doesn't come back up.

    If you really must have this piece of rubbish on your machine, on the underside you should see a sticky label with a service code on it. Go to the Dell support site and search for your machine by entering the code. All the proper drivers and software should then be offered to you for download.

    Ripper, I have linked the user to the correct Dell download, for the IDT sound driver. You didn't read my post.

    Apologies for that fireberd.

  12. If you click the link in my post, it takes you directly to the latest version. There will be two options, the 32-bit and the 64-bit versions. It includes the HD Audio Manager that you mentioned you are seeking.

    RealTek Manager & Drivers missing.

    I did previously see this IDT Delldriver using my service tag.
    I was still unsure if Realtek didn'tsupport Dell E5530 model.
    There was a post in the Dell Communityforum stating, Dell switched from
    IDT to Realtek as their audio vendor(see link below posted from Jimco).

    I'll probably use IDT drivers if the Microsoft Catalog drivers(suggested to me) fail.

    Yes,I did see the 2 Audio drivers. I just wanted to verify with you.
    I'llgive it a shot, but fireberd maybe right, I only have one option touse IDT audio drivers for Dell E5530.

    Ihear your frustration. My experience using RealTek audio on my XPS 13model delivered different results. The sound was clear and sharp with MP3's having no audio distortions.

    Thanksto everybody for your assistance.

    Dell has used multiple vendors at different times over the years. I've been a member of the Dell forums since 2002 and am still listed as one of their "rockstars". However, if a PC has, for example IDT sound hardware chip, then the IDT driver must be used (the generic basic function High Definition is an alternate but doesn't provide full functionality). Dell has a compatible driver for this model (8.1 drivers are 10 compatible).
