    March 10, 2011  |   By PatrickJohnQuinn

    Version: Realtek AC'97 Driver (Windows Vista / Windows 7) 6.0.1.6305

    Pros

    Got it working - eventually

    Cons

    Windows 7 64 bit. I ran setup as an administrator, it kept saying that it cannot verify the publisher, and asks permission to continue. Then it did iot again.. and again...

    Summary

    "Manually Install is quicker then clicking ok 40 times."

    February 18, 2011  |   By tillman_james87

    Version: Realtek AC'97 Driver (Windows Vista / Windows 7) 6.0.1.6305

    Pros

    Drivers are fine read bottom line

    Cons

    read bottom line

    Summary

    The bottom line is this. If the driver installation program itself is giving you problems then it would just be simpler and faster to do a manual install. Follow these steps if you are logged in with administrator rights.

    Right click on computer and go into device manager. From there find the drop down tree for your sound controller. Expand the tree and right click on your sound device and select update driver. Select search my computer. Go into your drivers folder and find and select the appropriate folder I.E. "select Vista for Vista and 7 32 bit or select Vista64 if you have a 64bit version of either operation system. If you want to see if your operating system is 64 bit or not go into system properties and view it. Which can be seen by right clicking on computer and selecting properties. Your summary should come up along with some other things.

    Not being lazy and letting a simple application who's only job is to copy the drivers and give you the stupid looking realtek gui, which frankly I prefer to go without. Hope this gave you all some insight.

    "Flawless sound, slight problems"

    October 7, 2010  |   By nickcool9999

    Version: Realtek AC'97 Driver (Windows Vista / Windows 7) 6.0.1.6305

    Pros

    Sound works. It's truly amazing!

    Cons

    Duhm. You have to allow the driver to access your computer EXACTLY 20 times.

    Summary

    You have to allow the driver to access your computer EXACTLY 20 times, each warning 20 seconds away. People think this is an endless loop, but in reality, it's just a VERY LONG loop. Download this driver if you have the patience to wait 3 1/2 minutes for a driver to go through a begin phase.

    "It worked great"

    February 27, 2010  |   By okleftovers

    Version: Realtek AC'97 Driver (Windows Vista / Windows 7) 6.0.1.6305

    Pros

    It downloaded great, in a short amount of time, and it got my audio going on my windows 7.

    Cons

    After you download. You do after find the file to open and install it.

    Summary

    Bottom of the line is it gets your audio going without charging you money.

    "Big problems with this driver."

    January 25, 2010  |   By randylg

    Version: Realtek AC'97 Driver (Windows Vista / Windows 7) 6.0.1.6305

    Pros

    None. It won't install.

    Cons

    Starts to install, then Win7 says it can't verify the publisher, I click install anyway and a few seconds later the same message comes back that it can't verify the publisher. Clicked on this maybe 50 times. Same result.

    Summary

    Don't know if it is a problem with the installer software or Win7. But somebody needs to read these reviews and get their act together either at Microsoft or Realtek.
