Cannot remove realtek audio, cannot install proper drivers


Jan 7, 2010
Hello, I am using WIndows vista home premium 6.0 build 6001 and cannot uninstall realtek ac97 audio driver.
I had installed it after trying to fix an audio problem in which i could not here dialogue or singing in mvoies and music files, I tried reinstalling the drivers but vista will not properly reinstall any driver versions I have tried: r2.24 - newest driver releases from realtek.

I tried to delete HDAUDIO registry from regedit but there is an error while deleting or access is denied. I do not know if deleting the registry will get rid of the driver though...

I was wondering if there was any other options, or other drivers I might be able to try.

thanks alot!
