    Does anyone know a safe place to download this? Do I have to pay for it?

    Thanks. I just installed this and it says it should be working and I have all my volume settings turned up but I can't hear anything. Does anyone know why this might be?

    Here is where I download the Realtek High Definition Audio driver:

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/Realtek_High_Definition_Audio_for_2KXP03_d4902.html (for XP)

    http://www.majorgeeks.com/Realtek_High_Definition_Audio_for_VistaWin_7_d5513.html (for Vista and 7)

    You didn't mention which Windows version you're using.

    I'm not sure about XP, but the driver has to be installed twice in Vista and 7.

    The first install removes the driver, then you restart the computer.

    The second install installs the driver, then you restart your computer again.

    If you read the install screens carefully, it'll tell you whether the driver needs to be installed twice and the computer restarted twice.

    A Realtek HD Audio Manager applet will be placed in the Control Panel so you can adjust your settings.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Are you sure that your computer has Realtek High Definition Audio?

    Go into the Device Manager and click the + in Sound Video And Game Controllers, then advise what's listed in that heading.

    If perchance there's an Other Devices heading, advise what's listed in it too.
