Anyone knows why the hell I can’t install Realtek audio driver?

I reinstalled windows 11 using a usb storage thing and the audio is broken. Figured it’s an audio driver and tried to install it but doesn’t freaking work and it’s pissing me off.

Try with IOBit driver booster.

I am not allowed to have my PC specs in my signature.

Is that an app that I need to download? I don’t know what that is.

I don’t trust those driver applications. They tend to be fake with virus or once you start installing a driver your hit with a paywall…

You need the right driver version. There are several.

I do have the right driver. I downloaded it straight from the Dell website and it picked up the model of my laptop.

Click on "view installation log" and post what it says.

Try installing the Dell Command Update tool, and have that update your drivers. The log file is showing it has a problem extracting the driver files.  You may just need to re download the file.  Or maybe try to right click and "run as administrator" to launch it, in case its some permission issue.

 

I would recommend installing the Command Update tool as well,  it will check for updates for all your components.

Also try windows update. Look under optional updates it may have driver there for you to install.

 

If dell downloads the driver in zip format, extract it but dont run the exe

Instead open device manager > find your audio device > right click > update > browse > navigate to the where you extracted the zip > Next. See if windows picks up the driver that way.

Ok, I gave you the tool to solve your exact issue, if you don't want to use it that's on you.

You don’t know if that will fix my issue…
