Hello everyone this is my first forum post and i could use your help if you'd like 2 help me
So this weekend I've been playing with some ubuntus on my pc and yesterday i came back to Windows 7
I did the same things I do at every install but this time i can't install my Realtek driver. Windows Security comes up and tells me it's an untrusted source and even though I click on "Install anyway" it keeps showing up. Then I looked up in my Device Manager and saw that I only have one sound device called "High Definition Audio Device". I think thats just the sound control that Windows has, so where is my sound card? I can't seem to find out. One more thing: in my Device Manager I now have a device called Unknown Device. Could it be the sound device? If it is then why won't my pc recognise it anymore? Please help and tell me if I can give more details 2 make things clear. This is all I know so far.
Thanks but I already found a solution. I found a program called Driver Genius that seems to detect my Realtek audio driver. I updated it and all my other out of date drivers and now it's running smooth
thing is i dont use the k-lite codec pack as it causes incomparability and stability issues.
nore do i use 2.1 audio i use 8.1 or 7.1 so its not an issue. and as the op uses 5.1 it wont affect him either...
not every 1 is stuck with a P4 you know.
