A new Conexant SmartAudio HD driver has been spotted on Microsoft’s Update Catalog, namely version 188.8.131.52, which is only compatible with the 64-bit variant of Windows 10 operating system.
Since there is no changelog available, I can only assume that this new release might implement various quality and stability improvements, driver customizations, or even audio enhancements. Also, take into account that a Windows 10 32-bit package hasn’t been provided yet, so don’t try installing this update on this OS.
Moreover, as it is available for download in a .cab file format, the installation process doesn’t require just opening the executable and following the on-screen instructions, but the steps aren’t too difficult either.
In other words, download the file, close all programs and processes that might interfere with the upgrade, extract the package, and wait for all files required to be extracted.
Afterward, go to Manage (search for it in Start Menu), locate and right-click on the device you want to upgrade, and choose Update Driver Software. Now, manually select the new driver directory, and follow all instructions that allow installing the new build.
That said,, apply it on your device, and perform a reboot to allow changes take effect properly. Also, check our website as often as possible, as we’ll keep you posted when additional files are made available.
