Windows 10 audio drivers for Inspiron 17R SE (7720, Mid 2012)

Jump to solution

Hello,

On product page related to my laptop  Inspiron 17R SE (7720, Mid 2012) there is information that "Dell has tested this product to confirm that it can upgrade to Windows 10." 

I've installed Windwos 10 Pro x64 bit everything is working fine except of audio.

There are no drivers to download from download page for Audio and sub-woofer on my laptop is not working at all.

Link to driver download page: www.dell.com/.../advanced

Could i please get download link for compatible audio driver (IDT sound card)

Hey there,

I've had the same problem with my Dell.

I just installed the driver available for Windows 8.1 (64bit) and it works just as well.

This hopefully works.

I have the exact same problem.  Everything is working correctly except I have distorted sound (Loud Cracking/Crackling) that is over the sound playing and even louder when in between audible sounds (dead air on a recording/video).

I have also looked to update drivers but to no avail.

Thanks so much for posting this info - it corrected the audio problems I've had since upgrading to Win 10

Now I need to find out how to fix the touch pad problem............... In Win 10 I can't find any way to disable it - and when I uninstall it from its properties page - that doesn't work either.

Again - thanks for the audio help!

BirdLookOut - Try installing Dell Quickset Application and make sure that touchpad drivers were installed via Windwos update (it was for me):

http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER01749179M/1/Application_D4N3K_WN_11.1.45_A00.EXE

Shirish12 - you also should install it to activate button to change MaxxAudio settings.

Remember that after audio drivers installation you have to reboot your computer.

Hi SLONIUPL - I've done the Quickset dl and installed twice now - it's not helping.

When windows updated to 10 the version of touchpad was 10.1200.101.202 - in properties the disabled button is greyed out - I have done and uninstall and reboot numerous times and the touchpad still functions.

As was suggested somewhere else - I DL'ed and installed the previous version that was working in Win 8.1 - driver was 8.1.101.178 - Again the disable button is non functioning and touchpad still working even if I uninstall that one and reboot numerous times.

Not sure what to try next - I've searched for more info but haven't been successful.

For me with the same version installed from Windows Update touch-pad is working correctly.

If you have issues then please do a clean install of Windows 10 and not upgrade.
