    Hi,

    Kindly follow the details below

    Download & Reinstall  Realtek HD Audio Manager

    Before downloading the new drivers, uninstall all the current drivers. In order to avoid duplicate conflicts among several drivers, one must uninstall the duplicate audio drivers as well.

    To do this follow these steps-

    Click on Start button and navigate to Device Manager.

    Expand Sound, video and game controllers from the list in Device Manager.

    Under this, locate the audio driver Realtek High Definition Audio.

    Right-click on it and select on Uninstall device from the drop-down menu.

    Download  Reinstall Realtek HD Audio Manager

    Check the option with Delete the driver software for this device and hit the uninstall button.

    Now go to Views tab and click on Show hidden devices from the drop-down menu.

    Now search for duplicate audio drivers if any. Right-click on it and hit the Uninstall option.

    Restart the system.

    To manually download the audio driver

    visit the website support.acer.com - chose your country -  chose your device or enter the snid

    Click on Drivers and manuals

    Download and install the sound driver

    I have a new Acer spin-2 and I realised that sound output is very basic. When I checked device manager, I discovered that I dont have Realtek HD audio at all.
    Could you assist me how to install this?

    I think you should create a new topic about the Realtek audio driver problem for your Acer Spin laptop, Budak.
    also "Spin-2" is too vague as there is no such model listed on the Acer site.  run msinfo32.exe to gather proper specs of your Acer Spin computer which should provide a more accurate model.
