    Default Looking for an older Realtek HD audio driver

    My pc (Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G intel P43
    Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 3.0GHz
    Samsung 1TB 32 MB 7200RPM
    Seasonic SS-500ET Active PFC
    Transcend 2GB DDR2 800
    Samsung DVD-RW SH-S223F x22
    Gainward 9500GT 512MB GDDR2) fails to produce 5.1 audi. All I get is stereo. I ran a search on the net and discovered this problem being quite common and having a strange solution, use of an older audio driver.
    Can you help me in get a Vista_Win7_R150.zip or a close relative of it? The driver may be a vista only driver, which I'lll try on my win7 system in compatibility mode.

    Umm, a driver does not work in compatibility mode. It either works or doesn't. Now the setup program... yes you might have a chance with that if the driver itself is compatible with Windows 7. Anyway, I have R2.34 sitting on my hard drive. Would that do the trick? I can upload it if you need it.

    hI Th3_uN1Qu3,
    Thanks for you offer and insight. The driver's version on my system is 2.37 and yours, a bit earlier. Testing is worthwhile, even though I don't expect the minor differences between your version and mine will count. So, please upload it. I'll test it and see.
    Still, the reports I got from the net refer to a much older version, 1.50. If anyone knows of a decent database for older drivers, or any other source, please let me know.

    Well if i could find my motherboard CD i would probably have an even earlier version. But anyway i blew my onboard sound some time ago (all the analog outs except the front panel headphone are fried), so i don't really have any interest to look for that CD. Here is R2_34. Realtek R2_34.rar

    For older drivers you could try searching DriverGuide, but beware, free membership has A LOT of limitations. I signed up back when rules were more lax, i have access to more stuff. So if you find anything of interest over there but can't download it let me know.

    Hi,
    Thanks for uploading the file. I tried to unrar it, and looks like it's corrupted.
    See log:

    Please don't rush seeking a solution. I'll first check again DriverGuide, and see if I find an older version first. I'll let you know when I complete searching there.

    I just re-tested the archive and it is fine. Maybe there was a problem with the upload, or it's on your side... It should be 38.9MB.

    What is the issue your GFX card or the board sound, just ask because it looked like you blamed the card since you started right beside it?

    Maybe you are just not setting up the new version correctly? Just wondering, not trying to say you are lost or anything.

    R2.47 latest here if you want to try

    Hi,
    Thanks for your efforts. I really appreciate it!

    While being in the process of downloading the vista version, which I hope fits best a win7 system, I start suspecting the I'm not in the right direction.
    I followed a former tip and downloaded quite a few drivers from DriversGuide (I registered there a long time ago). None solved my problem.

    I'll try the vin, but my expectations are quite low.

    Can my problem stem from another reason?

    The Realtek manager is set to 5.1. The windows setup is set to 5.1. My Pilot loudspeakers are connected via 5.1 system. Nevertheless, akk I get is stereo.

    Well, my expectations proved right but from the wrong reason. I tried installing the driver on my win7, and got the message that the most recent legitimate os is vista. I tried in my xp platform (it's a dual boot system), and no suitable driver was found.

    Back to square one.

    What do you have set as your main sound source in control panel/sounds?
