Well known for its Audio chipsets (and more), Realtek has made available a new version of its High Definition Audio package, namely 188.8.131.5259, which might include small improvements regarding stability, performance, as well as sound quality.
However, to find out what the changes really are, you must install the package on your desktop or notebook. For that, ensure your computer is running one of Microsoft’s 32- or 64-bit variants of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or Windows 10 operating systems.
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 7859 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.
That said,, install it, and check out our website as often as possible to be aware when a newer version is available for your device.
