No Audio after installing Windows 7

Q: No Audio after installing Windows 7

I have installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my computer after reformatting it.
The installation is successful but there is no Audio.
When i click on the properties of the Sound & Audio,
the error says: "Cannot start this device. Code 10".

I have tried to update it through Windows update, but there is no update for the audio driver,
it always says 'Your Audio Driver is Up to Date'.

I have manually tried to download and install the Audio Realtek HD sound Driver,
Still does not work.

Please Help!!

A: No Audio after installing Windows 7

Let's make sure that your playback devices are enabled.

Right-click the speaker icon on your taskbar > Select 'Playback Devices'
In the empty space, Right-click and select both 'Show Disconnected/Disabled Devices'
Do you see icons for your speakers and headphones now? You may need to enable both of these.

You can also try the troubleshooter to discover any connection issues that may exist, instructions are below:

Click 'Start' > Select 'Control Panel'
Type troubleshooting in the top-right search field > Select 'Troubleshooting'
Click 'Hardware and Sound' > Select 'Playing Audio'

Background: A little while ago, the audio on my Windows XP Pro SP2 system
stopped working. I was using the on-board audio card and never had a problem
before. Then, the audio device just wasn't recognized by windows anymore.
When I went to the "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" window from the
Control Panel, it would tell me that no audio device was detected. Looking
in the Device Manager, however, under the "Sound, Video and Game Controllers"
section, all drivers were installed properly, with no IRQ conflicts, and no
yellow exclamation points on any of the sound devices or codecs. I also
verified that my speakers were working on another system, obviously, and
ensured that the audio card was enabled in my motherboard's BIOS. I
downloaded the latest drivers for my motherboard (and on-board audio card),
uninstalled and successfully re-installed those drivers multiple times.
Still no sound! I even went out and bought a new PCI audio card, installed
it, downloaded and installed the latest drivers for it. STILL no luck. This
is when I really began to scratch my head.

Next, I tried a to do a non-destructive "Repair" of Windows using that
option from the Windows XP setup CD. I got errors doing that , and I gave up
after several attempts. Finally, on a cloned backup hard drive, I
re-installed Windows completely. Lo and behold, the audio worked fine!

This leads me to believe that some part of the Windows XP audio "su... Read more

I am really hoping if someone could help me with this issue that I am facing ever since I installed Windows 7 Ultimate (32 Bit).
I was using Windows XP Home edition prior to this.
After the installation of Windows 7, I saw in the Device Manager under the section "Sound" : Multimedia Audio Controller. This also had a yellow exclamation mark.

On my desktop, on the bottom right hand corner, if I click on the speaker icon (It has a red cross on it), it says "No audio devices are installed".

I have integrated sound card.

Can someone please tell me how to check what sound drivers I need and from where to install it?

I would really appreciate the help.

The audio icon in my taskbar has a red circle with a white cross in it. When I try to install the latest driver through windows task manager it says I have the latest one. When I do a windows update I get no difference. Not really sure what I should do now. I'm out of ideas. Help? Please?

Hi guys!

First i want to apologize for my bad english since i'm italian

So.. I just installed windows7 ultimate and suddenly the right audio channel is not working.

1) I want to make clear i've tried different cables and headphones/speakers (i'm a producer so i've got plenty..) and i can't hear the right channel at all.

2) I tried to download latest version of Realtek and it didn't help

3) On audio configuration when i press the configure button and it starts helping me configuring it, when i tried the right audio channel i could hear it very low (like the left channel is at least 10 times higher). that is the only situation in wich i can hear something coming out from my right speaker (and is like a 90w monitor.. so i think i'll hear it otherwise)

4) Since i just installed everything i tried to format and re-install, but i got no results

5) I tried the bit/hz thing but with ANY configuration i don't get any result

6) And now a very odd thing: since i got an external audio interface i tried even with that. right channel still not working.

I just installed the GameMuse DVD 5.1 driver to my Windows XP Pro because my sound wasn't working and now I can't get past the "Windows Is Starting Up" Screen. It will say video resolution not supported and then the only thing I can do is reboot.

This never happened before when I installed this driver, but it happened now after I installed and used Driver Genius Professional.

Please advise.

A:windows not starting right after installing new audio driver

Try these:

1. During startup, press F8 repeatedly (could be a different F-key, usually F8). If done right, you should come to a black screen with multiple selections, such as starting in safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, networking, etc. Select the "Start with last known good configuration" option and press enter. See if that helps.

2. In the event the above does not work, then do the same thing again and start in safe mode. If it allows you to do so, go into the device manager (right-click on "My Computer", properties, click the Device Manger button), select the device you installed the driver for, and roll-back the driver.

3. In the event neither of the above worked, do the same thing again, and start in safe mode. This time, try system restore. Try restoring to a point BEFORE you installed the driver.

I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on Toshiba Portege M500. However there is no audio came out although in the device manager it worked properly.

I have installed realtek audio driver but still no audio.

Could you please advise how to fix this issue? Thank you.

A:No audio after installing Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit on Laptop

If you installed RealTek, it did not take. The generic basic function Windows installed High Definition Audio Device is all that is showing for sound. Are you sure this PC has RealTek?

Looking at the Device Manager listing, this PC has other unidentified device problems. If there are motherboard chipset drivers for this model, install them as a first step.

More on the specs of this PC is needed. I looked at the Toshiba site but there are many different Portage M500 models.

When i open playback devices all I have is NVIDIA HDMI Output (port 0) and (port 1), both of which show unplugged and disabled.

Guys, I have problem with Realtek HD audio when sound plays. The sound skippies on some areas.

Please reply.

A:Sound Skippies on Windows 7 after installing Realtek HD audio

Sound is always on a shared IRQ (Interrupt) with a higher priority device. Depending on what the higher priority device is it could be interrupting the sound.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. Sometimes this puts sound on a different shared IRQ and fixes the problem.

Just like the title says, I don't want the realtek audio drivers as it completely messes with my audio and also doesn't correctly switch when i plug in headphones for example.
It also doesn't allow for the 'speaker fill' enhancement to be used when playing stereo content through surround sound.

Windows itself does a far better job as opposed to realtek.

Every time i uninstall realtek it automatically gets reinstalled.

Sorry Microsoft, you don't know best.

Hello everybody!

Ok, so a couple days ago i turn on my computer and bam no audio. Clicking on the little sound icon only shows "No audio output device installed". double clicking on it brings up a msdt.exe that only leads to an error "0x80070490". Because my sound is connected through HDMI connected from my graghics card to my tv and then out through an external speaker system, i simply unplug the speaker's cord from my tv and plug it into the output on the back of my computer and it started working again back to normal. However a day later it completely stopped working again.

So of course i scour the internet for help, i uninstall and re-install the drivers to no avail through device manager. "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus" as it is called in my device manager (there is two of them actually, the other being my NVIDIA drivers that i uninstalled out of desperation) shows a yellow exclamation mark and brings up a (Code 1) "device not configured properly".

Whatever happened also managed to add an exclamation point next to my cd/dvd drive and plug and play software device enumerator as well. Using the same logic as i did trying to fix the audio drivers actually worked on my cd drive but the plug and play device completely disappeared and cannot re install it.

A few months ago I installed Windows 7 Ultimate (x86) on this computer and I got all drivers to work except for IDT Audio. Assuming IDT would provide some installation patches later, I just kept putting off. Now, several months later, nothing has come up and I'm still stuck without it. Everytime I try to start the setup file, it would start Install Wizard, but it would then give me an error saying "ExitError:Error=Device Object not present, restart the system and run setup again"

I'm not really sure what else might be needed, so just leave a post asking for more information.

A:Problems installing IDT Audio

Do you have a Vista driver? The Vista drivers should work OK on Win 7. Have you tried downloading the driver again? Maybe the driver you have is corrupted. Also, if there are motherboard chipset drivers, did you install them? On many systems the chipset drivers must be installed before installing sound drivers.

I have been running XP with SP2 for years, and after a virus problem a few months ago, (which BleepingComputer helped me remove), I decided to move up to SP3. After it was installed, followed by 68 updates, everything seemed to be working well, until I tried to play an audio file. My system shows no audio device installed. I tried to find a solution to the problem, but what I found is that the Realtek HD audio adapter (which is built in to my Toshiba A105-2141 laptop, is not compatible with SP3.

So I decided to uninstall SP3, and stay with SP2. I have followed the procedures to removing SP3, but it uninstall wizard "cannot find a file", and then announces that SP3 was no uninstalled.

This morning i did a clean install of Windows 8 on my new Laptop
and just had a BSOD while i was installing latest Realtek drivers.
Hope someone can figure out wat's causing it

A:BSOD while installing Realtek Audio

Your BIOS dates from 2011. Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any BIOS updates available for your system. Also check the readme file to see if they apply to the problems that you are having. Please be advised that flashing the BIOS is a very unforgiving process - and one mistake can physically damage your motherboard.

We've seen a number of BSOD issues with SSD's. Here's the information that I've compiled so far:

There's not a whole bunch available to test SSD's. The "easiest" test is to remove the SSD, install a platter-based hard drive, install Windows and test for stability that way.

Here's some suggestions:
- Update the SSD's firmware to the latest available version (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
- Update the motherboard controllers drivers to the latest available version from the controller manufacturer (NOT the mobo manufacturer unless you can't find any on the controller manufacturer's website). Be sure to update ALL controllers on the motherboard! I STRONGLY suggest not using controller drivers older than mid-2012 with SSD's.
- Slow the memory (RAM) down to the next slower speed (I've only seen one person who claimed that this worked for them).

Hey guys, an issue I've been struggling with all evening here.

Today I upgraded this box from onboard graphics to a Nvidia Geforce GT 430 and also installed the 260.99 graphics drivers from the main Nvidia site.

the motherboard is from the Foxconn G31MX series of boards (775 chipset).

The OS is Windows 7 Professional

After installing the new graphics card and drivers, my sound device was replaced with a non-functional Nvidia HD audio device, I have uninstalled this and installed the windows 7 drivers from foxconns support site.

Still no audio device !

Any help would be much appreciated.

A:No audio device found after installing new GTX 430

If you see any yellow exclamation marks in the device manager, delete these and restart the PC. See if the sound returns

I'm running Windows XP SP2. I had absolutely no problems installing the audio driver from the disc that came with my motherboard the first time around. Unfortunately, I had to reformat and reinstall Windows because my harddrive was being recognized as disk "i" instead of "c" (causing alot of problems for me installing software). So now that problem has been solved, but I can't get the Realtek audio driver installed. A message pops up each time I try to install it which says: "Install Realtek HD audio driver failure". Could it be because I also installed "uaa bus driver - version I don't think that one was meant to be used with Windows XP SP2 (it's not listed as being one of the OS's that supports this driver). Of course, now I have no idea how to get rid of it, and a balloon pops up from the taskbar each time I turn on my computer saying "new hardware installed". I try to install it using the wizard, but it won't install. What's gone wrong?

A:Installing Realtek audio driver

Try a different version of drivers, hopefully more updated from the manufacturer's website.

thank you if u can help!!

A:installing the sis7012 audio drivers

Can't guarantee anything, but a couple of things to try:

Go to system properties (device manager) and remove any sound devices. Then refresh.

If the drivers don't reload, try using the "upgrade drivers" feature on your device in the device manager. have it search the disc with your drivers-in other words, have it search the old fashioned way. Don't bother with the installation program.

When I manually install audio driver for Realtek alc-888b/889 from the dvd came with motherboard, still windows says 'No sound card was found. No driver installed....'
I checked by running dxdiag.

I can't get the issue. Please help. Tnx.

A:Problem installing AUDIO DRIVER


Run the Windows Update before reinstalling driver.

Go to system manufacturer’s website and look for latest driver, Download - SAVE - right click and
RUN AS ADMIN. REBOOT after each driver installation.

Sound drivers often rollback so check the version after installation and the reboot to
see if the version you installed is there, if not repeat the install - reboot until it is. It can take
several tries depending on how many rollbacks it does.

Also Right Click Speaker near clock - Playback Devices - right click in the box area - check
Show disable and disconnected devices. Highlight speaker and on the lower Right click
Properties check settings for Device Usage enabled and so on. Also do same for Configure
on Lower Left of that box.

hi, my onboard sound card is an ac'97, windows vista installed the drivers without even downloading them. there is no sound that comes out at all, i downloaded and installed the drivers manually and still doesn't work.

vista home basic SP1 x86 (upgraded NOT clean install from XP home sp3)
i haven't used the on-board in long time, but my sound card i had installed got fried somehow, the computer wouldn't even boot, so i had to take it out.

vista says there are no problems, and i can see the green bar (like an equalizer) that appears in the sound mixer.

it used to work fine when i did use the on-board, the speakers aren't even 1 year old.

A:no audio even after SUCCESSFULLY installing drivers

When you remove the existing drivers from the device manager -- there is an option to delete the existing files. Then when you reboot -- nothing should be found and automatically installed.

Sometimes this works best before installing the downloaded drivers.

Hi all,

Hope someone can help me with this. I have no idea where to look.

I'm running Windows 2000 SP4 (fully updated), with Windows Media Player, QuickTime, and DivX Player installed (all kept up to date). I've had no video or audio problems, until...

I installed the CD that ships with the Samsung YP-Z5F MP3 player.
This installs three apps:
-Samsung Media Studio (just a fancy browser for mp3 files)
-XviD 1.0.3-20122004
-Lame MP3 Codec (for the ACM)

After installing them all (and leaving the option "Decode all supported FourCCs (DivX, DX50, MP4V)" checked in the XviD installer), I've had the following problems:
-Audio is gone, the computer now only makes high screechy sounds.
-WMV and MPG videos get stuck after 4 seconds, then take endless amounts of time to play (Windows Media Player).
-AVI videos are also screwed; either they don't play at all, or very slowly (DivX Player).
-QuickTime .mov files seem to play ok.

I've already tried upgrading XviD to the latest version (1.1.0), and uninstalling all this crap (rebooting at every turn), but it has no effect. Can anyone tell me where I can undo the damage?

Hi all, I've tried searching both this thread and elsewhere but I can't find a solution that works for my issue.
I just upgraded my Sager NP6165 laptop to W8 and updated all the drivers (chipset, wireless, etc.) using the Sager websites latest drivers and everything went well except for the fact that I have no sound at all.

I have two listings in the Device Manager for sound; High Definition Audio Device and VIA High Definition Audio.
The VIA HD Audio is listed as working properly in the Properties section but the other has a yellow exclamation mark this message: Location 3 (Internal High Definition Audio Bus) "This device cannot start. (Code 10) {Operation Failed} The requested operation was unsuccessful."
In order to solve this problem I have tried updating the audio drivers several times,trying to look internally and on the Web and have done multiple driver uninstalls for both hardware listings with no luck. I still have no sound although the software tells me that I should.
Does anyone have any ideas? Should I install an older driver in compatibility mode?

A:No sound after installing audio drivers

Uninstall the High Definition Audio Device, in the Device Manager. This is the generic, basic function, sound driver that Windows installs. If you have two they can conflict and nothing work. I assume your PC has Via High Definition Audio as the sound chip.

Check the Sound Panel and your "speakers" should be set as the Default Playback device.

The PC Vendor's drivers are preferred. Non vendor drivers may or may not work or may not work correctly.

Windows 7 drivers are compatible and work OK in Win 8. I have RealTek audio and I installed the Gigabyte (my motherboard) Windows 7 drivers and the sound works perfectly.

I'm trying to install the audio driver for my father's computer. He has Windows XP and his motherboard is an Asrock P4I45G. I downloaded the driver from Asrock's website:
But now I'm lost. There is no installation wizard, just a zip file. And I have no idea what to do next. Can anyone help?

A:Solved: Installing an audio driver

I'm assuming it's the C-Media audio driver for XP, dated 01-16-2004, that you downloaded and saved.

Place the ZIP file by itself in a folder on the desktop. Right-click the file, then click "Extract Here" from the list that appears. Once the extraction process completes in a few seconds, a folder containing several files will appear. (Note: You can now delete the ZIP file). Double-clicking the "Setup.exe' file will start the install process. Once it's complete, reboot the computer.

(Just in case you need it for future reinstall, I would burn off the folder to a CD-R)

When Windows was installed i must have made some sort of mistake, because the sound doesnt work. It appears as if no audio drivers are installed. I have tried reistalling it with the installation guide, scanning for drivers on the HDD, in the xp install disc and on some other discs that came with the comp. I tried scanning for drivers with windows live update, but since i have changed my network setup at one point it tries to "dial up" in a broadband connection. I was foolish enough not to click the settings button and the connection window has not come up again, even after repeating what made it came up the first place. Can i somehow check for drivers some other way using windows update? I cant find any cd labled with anything implying audio drivers.

I recently reformatted my PC and have had difficulty in installing audio drivers. My system is running Windows XP Professional, Version 2002, Service Pack 3.

My machine is using an Intel D955xbk motherboard. Other hardware info follows:

Genuine Intel CPU 3.20 GHz
2.00 GB of RAM
500 GB Western Digital SATA hard drive
MSI R4670 Graphics Card, 512 MB DDR 3

After reformatting, I installed the necessary drivers and updated windows to Service Pack 3. For the audio device, I used the AUD_allOS_D20001.0x_PV_IDTGUI_v105_Legacy driver from Intel's site. On the first run, the files extracted and the installer launched. It appeared to precede normally, until I received the message "Cannot copy file st322000.dll" Although I saw this file in the extracted folder, the installer kept producing this message until I exited. Afterwards, the Device Manager showed Audio Codecs, Legacy Audio Drivers, Legacy Video Capture Devices, Media Control Devices, Video Codecs, and Two identical entries with question marks and the title "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus." On my second attempt to install the audio drivers, I received a message saying "The hardware detected is not supported by this IDT software package. The installer will abort."

Anyone have a clue what's going on here?

A:Trouble installing an IDT Audio Driver

Have you tried the "Intel Driver Update Utility"?It's possible this may help you find another driver that works. You may also want to look at KB888111 from Microsoft. This is the Universal Audio Architecture driver for Windows XP, 2000, and 2003.Hope this helps,

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

If you have onboard sound, you can get the audio drivers from your mobo manufacturers website.

If your computer is an oem build such as Dell/Gateway/Hp etc, you can get the drivers from your computer manufacturers website.

If you have a separate sound card, you should go to your soundcard manufacturers website.

Hi Folks.

This place seemed as good a place as any to come and ask for help, so here goes...

My dad's been having internet problems for a long time now, mostly due to YouTube. I tried everything to fix it and in the end we decided that the only thing to do was to upgrade his computer to Windows 7.

We did so, and have since upgraded both his and my computer to Windows 7 Ultimate. Now here's the problem:

My computer has perfect audio. Movies, games, music, YouTube...everything works perfectly.

My dad's computer has NO audio AT ALL. Why this is so, I've no idea. I've tried installing some drivers that were recommended to me, but that's done absolutely nothing. The 'Speaker' symbol on the bottom right of the screen remains inactive with a red and white cross next to it.

I did a bit of reading through this site as well as some of my own troubleshooting and I'm fairly confident it's something wrong with the sound-card. The thing is, I'm not sure how to find out what sound-card that computer has! What do I need to do and how do I fix this problem?

Whenever I install the DFX Audio Enhancer (Free Version) for my Windows Media Player 11 the DFX Splash Screen will show for a second and then the WMP11 crashes.

When I download the DFX, I let the installation download to it's default location (Program Files>DFX) so I don't do anything out of the ordinary during the installation phase.

I then find it necessary to go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall the DFX and then my WMP11 will work ok without it.

Anyone have any experience and a solution for this problem?

The DFX for Real Player that I've installed works fine with no problem.

Thanks for any help or advice.

I inadvertently reinstalled WXP a few months ago(at least I think that's what I did). Since then I have had many reconfigurations to work out. Right now I can't get much out of my various audio/video software programs, including Musicmatch, Real One, Cool Edit, etc. Windows Media Player does play music and video, but when I play my MP3s', about half way through I always get an error message(the mp3 files keep playing, until I click ok on the error message).

I'm possibly missing some kind of common driver or something these devices all need?

I'm attaching screenshots of all the warning boxes for each software in question.

Hi there, first of all nice job on this forum, as it seems this one is one of the most active for windows 7 help. I hope you guys can help me out.
My problems began after I clean re-installed W7. My rear audio jacks are not being recognised in device manager, and plugging in my headphones won't help. I disabled my front audio panels, because the front and rear jacks cant be used at the same time and my rear jacks have surround sound options, so I'm using those.
This setup has been working fine for 4 years, with me using the rear jacks for my 5.1 surround sound headset.

- Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- ASRock P55M PRO motherboard ASRock > P55M Pro
According to ASRock: Audio - 7.1 CH HD Audio (VIA? VT1708S Audio Codec)

What I've tried to do / done already:
- Checked volume, sound ON/OFF and all that basic stuff
- Looked at Device Manager, see screenshot.
- Updated windows with windows updater
- Checked my headphones, they still work on other devices
- I enabled the on board sound in BIOS (maybe I did it wrong?)
- Downloaded the drivers from the asrock website, however, after using the setup.exe for the driver and restarting my computer, it's as if nothing changed.
- Did the same for the drivers from the VIA website.

A:No sound from rear audio jacks after installing W7

Sounds like something is amiss with the device itself or possibly the jacks themselves(possible hardware issue). But; i would try completely uninstalling all the devices that have the issues; reboot; and let windows try and reinstall them. If you have disks for any of the devices you might have to use the disc to load the drivers and then update them online if needed. If that does not work then it sounds like those jacks may have just bit the dust suddenly in which case you could try sending the board in to the manufacturer to have them fix it; or just get a new board which i know is not what you want to hear but if it comes down to that you may have to.

After my pc-to-monitor plug broke away from the motherboard connection, I installed an ASUS graphics card, which took over from the onboard Nvidia in my Windows XP Home Edition and restored the connection to my monitor. [IHowever,[/I] since then, I have had absolutely no sound. In "Sounds and Audio Devices" I discovered that Ati was listed as my default sound device, replacing the Realtek that was there before. It appeared to be playing in WMP, but no sound came out of the speakers.
I did all the usual things ~ checked that it was enabled, not muted, updated the driver, and any number of other suggestions found on various forums. I re-installed Realtek, but when I re-booted... TA DA..there was Ati still. I then uninstalled Ati and tried again with Realtek. Now it just says no audio device installed. OH! and right from the beginning, it had that annoying "No Volume Control Program installed" window leaping up at me when I tried to put an icon in the task bar... which many have had a problem with, I know.

After 2 months of obsessively trying to fix this, I'm ready to take a hammer to my previously beloved computer. I now have neither Ati or Realtek installed, everything is just greyed-out in the sound and audio device window. Something must be incompatible with something, but I'm completely out of ideas on how to fix this, finally.

Earlier today, Windows Update prompted me to install two items: KB3035583 (recommended) and "Realtek Semiconductor Corp. - Audio Device, Other hardware - Realtek High Definition Audio" (optional). I installed both items.

After rebooting, the audio coming from my speakers could barely be heard. Changing the Windows 7 speaker icon (on the taskbar) to 100% didn't help much. The Volume Mixer applet lists the speaker icon and application icons at 100%. The Sound applet lists the speakers properties' levels at 100%. My speakers are set at their normal level; i.e., unchanged. I notice a red speaker icon on the taskbar which wasn't there before; presumably, the Realtek installation added this.

Any suggestions on how to proceed? I'm not sure if there was any Realtek software present on my system beforehand--so I'm not sure if this software is new (to my PC) or an update. The detail dialog box for the Realtek software says it was released in December 2014; this is the first I've seen it.

I installed XP sp2. I earlier had the same one and I used drivermax to store all the previously used drivers and imported them after re-installing XP.
But the problem is sound doesnt play. There is no volume icon on systray. I went to control panel -> sounds and audio devices. There in the "volume" tab, next to the speaker icon at the beginning it says " no audio device". And the two options below "device volume" and "speaker settings" are greyed out.

When I try to play it says: "Cannot play as theres a prob with ur sound device.There may not be a sound device installed, may be in use by another prog. or may not be functioning properly"

And the main thing is I have dual boot with Ubuntu and it works well.
Even before re-installing I had dual-boot and it worked ok.

Also Realtek Hd drivers are not installing on my pc. I am currently using VIA drivers. Both my motherboard and cabinet's front panel supports HD Audio. I tried re installing the drivers and also tried removing graphic cards hd audio drivers but nothing helped me. Also checked the device manager. Please help me! and thanx for reading

A:Help needed in HD Audio and installing Realtek drivers.

First on the drivers. If you have VIA sound chip then you need VIA drivers. If you have RealTek sound chip then you need the RealTek drivers. According to Gigabyte this motherboard had RealTek audio.

I would suspect a wiring problem in your HD audio connection, if you only hear one side (assuming you are inserting the connector properly). Also with the AC97 issue, that also suggests a wiring or case headphone jack problem.

Do you get proper audio if you connect the headphones to the GREEN speaker jack on the rear? If you do that also suggests a problem with the front panel assembly or wiring.

One comment, I see you have Windows 7 64 bit. With only 4GB of RAM the 64 bit is not doing anything for you and in fact is hurting you as the 64 bit OS requires more memory than the 32 bit version.

I installed Paltalk messenger on July 28th and I used it for a bit. After signing out and closing it, all of a sudden I can hear in the background audio that begins talking about Nuvaring and other things, it's like a bunch of ads and crap but I know it is coming from the Paltalk program since it happened right after I installed it. It also slows down the PC by using close to 100% of the CPU. I am able to get into safe mode with networking. This is how I am posting this right now.
This is a desktop PC with Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, 160 GB HD, and 2 GB RAM
On a laptop I was able to install Paltalk use it, close it and not have that audio problem running in the background non-stop. However, when Norton analyzed the install file for Paltalk it mentioned it being safe but a bit unreliable. Any help on how to remove this is appreciated it. I tried doing a system restore to a few days before I used paltalk and on both different days the system restore was unable to be completed. I have no idea why system restore isn't working, but I was hoping it would. Thank you

I'm trying to install the latest drivers audio drivers to fix a mic static problem I am having, but the driver after it hits this point the driver gets stuck installing leaving me without an audio driver.

A:Realtek Audio Drivers stuck installing

Are these drivers from ASUS, for your motherboard? or did you get the drivers somewhere else.

That may not be the issue with the mic static, although its a place to start.

Do a System Restore back to a date PRIOR to trying to install the new drivers. That will give you a "fresh start". Try installing them again. Install them "Run as Administrator" and see if that helps.

Hello guys,

I got a computer running Windows XP (SP3) with Intel motherboard (D915GEV). I currently have working sounds but I cannot use the "Stereo Mix" function to record what I hear through the speakers. I only get a short static noise every couple of seconds.

Looking in Add/Remove Programs I see these two sound drivers:
*High Definition Audio Driver Package - KB888111 (probably responsible for the working sounds)
*Realtek High Definition Audio Driver (that I see no evidence of being installed apart from the existence of Realtek folder inside "Program Files".

This is what I see in Device Manager menu (only the Microsoft UAA driver appears, no Realtek whatsoever):
Image - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

Plus, in the past the PC used to have AC'97 driver installed as well but I unistalled it months ago.
I tried to remove the Realtek driver but I get this annoying error:
Image - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting
I also get the same error whenever I try to launch a newer version of Realtek HD Audio driver installer, or even execute the AC'97 driver installer.

I created another (second) admin account and the uninstallation worked as it should, but back to my current account it is still present under Add/Remove Programs.

Is my Registry corrupted? Or is this about User permissions not set right?
Thank you

A:Error uninstalling/installing Realtek audio drivers

The Microsoft driver showed Realtek at the end. So you uninstalled the Microsoft/Realtek driver that was downloaded from Windows Update automatically. And the original AC97 Reatek driver is still on your computer. To reinstall it, download it from the Intel Website:

I've searched for and read many threads on forums about these two issues separately but never together, and I've whittled it down to the EXACT issue.

With my motherboard (asrock n68c-gs) i need to install the windows 7 VIA audio drivers. After doing so, the "No audio output device is installed" error disappears and I can access the volume icon. Upon reboot though, once I login I get the "C:\...Desktop refers to a location that is unavailable" error. Now this error ONLY occurs when I install an audio driver that fixes the audio output device error. It also hapened when I installed the realtek 3d blah blah driver, which also fixed the error, but not when I installed the realtek HD audio driver, which didn't fix the problem. The problem IS the correct driver installation, which has to be the most retarded issue I've experienced in the last decade.

Does anyone know how to fix this? I've had to use a restore point every time just to get the desktop back. I've tried solutions such as looking in the location where it says the desktop is unavailable, and also checked regedit User Shell Folders. The registry entries pointed to C:\Users\(my profile)\. Checking it now it gives a variable %USERPROFILE%. Is the fact that it wasn't written using the variable the problem? Thought I'd ask before I change anything. If not, any of solutions?

Thanks in advance.

A:Installing Audio Drivers Causes Desktop Location Error

Are you using the driver supplied by ASRock? If not, give that a try and see what happens.

Also, if you uninstall first, restart the PC before installing the ASRock driver.

I didn't look at the ASRock site for proper driver but I don't think VIA and RealTek are both compatible. Either you have RealTek or VIA but not both(?)

Hello everyone.

I've had some flash sound problems for a week now, tried pretty much every possible solution and today I tried reinstalling audio drivers. Looks like I never should have done it.

I removed the old ones, downloaded latest ones for my audio card integrated in the motherboard (ASUS P5K) and installed. The drivers are on the computer, but nothing happens. I remove them and install the ones from the motherboard's CD. Then the real pain begins. The drivers won't install anymore. It just says that in bad grammar, Finnish in this case. OS is WinXP Pro.

A true finisher strike was me noticing the drivers on the CD and the latest ones I downloaded being the same drivers. I believe the soundcard integrated in the mobo is Realtek ALC883.

Can someone please tell me what is going on? This is driving me crazy
