There is no need to update any of the drivers indicated as those programs are running OK, You should not install Beta Drivers, at any time, they are experimental, meant for testing to find bugs and at some time would become Certified and then OK to use.

 

 

There are no indicators yellow or red flags in device manager.   Pleas right click on each device driver (in turn) under the - sign, > click properties.   each one should show enabled, and, "this device is working properly."

However .. I checked everything before running this tool and made sure if the volume was unmuted and on high so I don't know why it says it was muted and the volume too low.

Apart from having no sound, is the systme running OK?

 

Verify you have the Reaktek HD Audio Manager installed on your system. You should see the Realtek HD Sound Effects Manager icon on the Windows Taskbar or in the Control Panel.   If present in the control panel, please click and follow the prompts, be sure to set it as the default.
