    because many different chips exist for realtek and some modified by oem's either by hardware or exclusive software to enhance the realtek chip/speakers/drivers like dolby/waves maxxaudio etc hence different anomalies occur when using non oem releases or hit and miss as we say until find a version decent enough to stay with till next update that works better

    Hello, I have an Asus Z97 Pro Gamer motherboard with Realtek ALC 1150 - SupremeFX built-in. What latest matching / dedicated driver am I able to obtain and install for myself? Currently I'm using v6.0.9088.1 version which I install via setup .exe file. What newer can I get to also have the same way of installing via a file?

    Installed it on the Z590 motherboard. Drivers installed but Realtek HD Audio Manager did not install (I removed existing drivers first, and HD Audio Manager was not installed)
    As a test I installed the same driver on my X299 motherboard and it did install the HD Audio Manager.

    Audio works on both systems

    Why would it install the HD Audio Manager on one but not the other?

    First download "Display Driver Uninstaller 18.0.4.3" from Guru3d.com and then switch off internet. Run it and if it give some messages like take backup or switch on safe mode or show options window, just click ok and close those windows. Then in main window click "select device type " and click "audio" option there. Below that click "select device" and click "Realtek wip". Then on left side of window click "clean and restart" option. Then it completes the operation and reboots system. Then install the new audio driver and restart system again. Then you will the see HD audio manager on tray after reboot. Then switch on your internet. This whole process needs the internet to be off.

    We have to blame m$ updates and its driver store because when our realtek driver setup uninstall old version and reboot, m$ interrupts installation process in some way which result in errors of HD Audio Manager not showing on tray. To avoid that , we must do this.

    Oh, ok. I thought DDU was for GPU drivers only. Silly me.
    I already have that.
    Thank you for your help. I do appreciate it. I will let you know how it goes.

    On a side note: I use a WSUS server here. I don't download drivers (or updates) from M$ directly. Nothing gets installed unless approved in WSUS first. I will disconnect Internet as you instructed, just thought that tidbit might be worth mentioning.
