    I had freshly installed my Windows 7 today thinking that everyone would be perfect fine, after it had installed I had discovered that I do not have my Realtek program.

    I went to the Realtek website and downloaded it, when trying to install it I this error "No driver was supported in this driver package"

    The thing that is frustrating me is that I was able to headset perfectly before the restart, after the restart I can no longer use the microphone on it which is what I really need working.

    Before the restart when I put in the purple or green jack it would say "Installing drivers", I do not get this any more.

    Headset it a Turtle Beach X12.

    I hope to god someone is able to aid my case and give me a solution.

    I assume since you mention Realtek and then headset, that it's the software for the integrated sound card you refer to. Then it would be most likely obtainable from the website of the manufacturer of your motherboard.

    Instead of downloading the latest version from Realtek, do you still have the orginal or working version? Try that.

    If needed, use a driver cleaner for Realtek stuff.

    There must be some driver mix up between the basic MS, the other driver etc.

    Are you sure you downloaded the right driver? What version of Win7?
    It kinda looks like you are trying to load a 32 bit driver on a 64 bit OS.

    I agree with Kriej, sounds like the wrong driver package. Try the original ones from your mobo disc or website, and make sure they are for your version of Windows (32 or 64 bit).
