Since Realtek is rolling out one new HD Audio driver version after another, today it’s time for its 188.8.131.5236 update, which I assume could include small stability, performance, and sound quality improvements.
However, to find out what the changes really are, you must install the package on your desktop or notebook. For that, you should know that the update includes support for the same OSes: both 32- and 64-bit variants of Microsoft’s Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 operating systems, as well as its latest Windows 10 platform.
Do not try installing Realtek’s update on platforms other than the ones mentioned above, as this isn’t recommended and might lead to malfunctions that would require you to remove it and apply the previous driver.
Now, to apply the 7836 build, first download the package on your desktop location, extract the archive, locate and run the available setup executable, and follow all on-screen instructions for a complete and successful upgrade.
Last but not least, don’t forget to give the wizard permission to perform a system reboot so that changes can take effect properly. If this task isn’t requested automatically, it would be a good idea to carry it out manually.
With this in mind,, install it, and check our website as often as possible to stay “updated one minute ago.”
