    New Realtek HD Audio codec drivers 2.68


    Realtek HD Audio 2.68 audio driver download from Guru3D.com

    To easily install, go to device manager first. Then right click the Realtek audio, choose uninstall and also check the box to delete the driver.

    This saves you a reboot in the process to install. When you run the installer, it won't demand a reboot before actually installing the driver.

    I can't get this one to install actually, the install always stops responding & crashes after extracting everything.
    Currently I'm on .6586 from 06/03/2012. I'm going to try removing those first and then installing the newest ones.. we'll see..
