Windows – HP Z400 front panel audio not working

audiodriverswindows 7

I have HP Z400 workstation with an internal speaker and runs Windows 7 Professional x64.
Initially I was using windows default audio driver and the internal speaker and rear audio jack were working fine. But, front panel audio jack was not working.
So, I downloaded the audio drivers from HP website and installed them.
But now windows can not detect any audio devices.
If I uninstall Realtek drivers, the behavior returns to normal.
But, I need front audio jack to work.
Any solutions?

I dowloaded drivers from here.

I tried the first two options there.(I think audio drivers are the same for both options)

Best Answer

The problem was solved by downloading the latest realtek HD audio drivers from third-party website.
The drivers available on HP website don't seem to work as they should.
