So I was having problems with my audio so I suspect it my motherboard audio driver so I reinstalled my motherboard audio driver but I didn’t uninstall the previous audio driver on my pc can anything bad happen if I install the motherboard audio driver twice is there any side effects because when I reinstalled my motherboard audio driver it said it was uninstalling the Audio driver first before installing it again

also what happens if you install a newer version audio driver on you pc when you didn’t uninstall the older version audio driver can anything bad happen?
 
It should automatically check if there is a previous version.usually they are just overwriting files and nothing bad will happen.
In the worst case, if something weird happens to your audio, you will be able to uninstall both/all drivers and start again.

When I reinstalled my audio driver again it said it was uninstalling the audio driver and then after it restarted It would take me to the process of installing the audio driver

is that right

in your case you can´t install two audio driver versions before uninstalling the old one
I installed the same version audio driver just to make sure it has something to do with my audio problems is that fine if I just installed the same version audio driver without uninstalling the audio driver before reinstalling it

and what happens if you install a different version audio driver without uninstall the older version

the old one will be uninstalled before you can install a different version
So you are saying if I install a newer version audio driver it will uninstall the old one automatically
before installing the new audio driver version

kind of new to the pc community so sorry
 
yes

if you install the same version either the installer refuses to install or just replaces the existing files/entries depending on which audio device you have.

which problems do you have with your audio anyways?

which motherboard/sound card/headset are you using?

try the ASUS tools

Sonic Studio III
Ok I can hear my audio now ty

but one question when I install my audio driver and i click asus setup.exe to install it it doesn’t work but when I click setup.exe it install my audio driver is this a problem or should I not care
 
You shouldn´t care about it.

Did you extract the zip file in a folder and then run the asus setup file ro did you run it within a zip tool?
eventually the ASUS setup file has to be opened like: right click on file, run as administrator...

The driver will work as intended with the other setup file as well
