Realtek HD Audio stopped working after I upgraded Windows

Q: Realtek HD Audio stopped working after I upgraded Windows

I bought a Gateway E56R41u to replace my Acer netbook. I'm really happy with this machine. However, I downloaded the free upgrade to Windows 8.1 and my audio quit working. I've downloaded all the drivers that I could find and nothing works. Is there a driver for another machine that will work with my Gateway?

A: Realtek HD Audio stopped working after I upgraded Windows

There is a generic driver available from RealTek, but if you have reinstalled the correct driver from Gateway, I doubt that the direct from RealTek will help.

Are there any other problems that you are aware of, after the 8.1 update? I don't recall this being a problem with audio.

Go to the Device Manager and display what is listed in the Sounds Video and Game Controllers section. Post back on what is listed there, including any error codes. Better yet, post a screen shot of that section.

This happened when I first upgraded from Vista to 7 32-bit last year, when the front output jack stopped working, and I ended up getting an extension cord to travel from the rear port.

Now I've upgraded again, and none of them work. I've got up to date Realtek codecs.

Any help is appreciated. I know I need to give more information, but it's 3am here and I can't for the life of me think what it should be.

Thanks in advance

A:(Realtek) Upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit, headphone jack stopped working

HEY, WE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM!
I tried everything, something isn't right here all of them don't fix my problem. I tried to restore to early time before I update it, it didn't work. I tried to follow every single instruction from the basic setting, still doesn't work. THIS IS WINDOWS FAULT, their market share is going down and they do little trick to make money. I tried to contact support and it says, "charge may apply." ONLY BECAUSE I HAVE OEM in my ****ing product ID.

My hardware is TOTALLY FINE, I believe yours too. WHY I know mine is fine? BECAUSE I USE UBUNTU ON THE SAME DEVICE! Open Source is your friend, you can trust it.

hi all.
For some reason my realtek audio has stopped working on my windows7 64bit system.
I just turned it on this morning. No sound.
I checked in playback devices and noted that under 'speakers' it tells me "Realtek high definition audio not plugged in"
Under that there is 'Realtek Digital Output' and this says "Realtek High Definition Audio Default Device"

The speakers are plugged in an I have tested them on another system to check they are working.
I have opened the Realtek HD Audio Manager and noticed that all analog back and front panel jack inputs are grayed out.
I have uninstalled all Realtek drivers and software. I have rebooted and let windows find the audio devices again and install drivers.
This made no difference at all.
I have cleaned the registry of anything relating to Realtek.
I have downloaded the latest driver software from the Realtek web site and installed that. This makes no difference either.
I have set the bios back to default. This has made no difference.
In the bios I have set the HD AUDIO option to both 'auto' and 'off'. still no sound.
All connections are in the correct jack sockets.

Could you please help me to get audio back on my system?
I have pretty much run out of things to try.

Thank You.

I recently purchased a Razer Carcharias which has a low microphone. I have to put the microphone boost on +30db for it to be adequate for ventrilo/teamspeak.

With that being said, it has static due to the extreme microphone boost. There's an "enhancements" tab under the microphones properties which has the options: DC Offset Cancellation, Noise Suppression, and Acoustic Echo Cancellation.

I checked "Noise Suppression", this completely removes the static in my microphone, but muffles my voice slightly (which is fine).

Now I decided to plug in my old headset (microphone part only) in, and run some quality comparison tests using Windows Sound Recorder. After I was done and plugged my Razer microphone in, the Noise Suppression option stopped working completely.

I've tried using the back jacks, front jacks, and I even reinstall drivers, and used older drivers. I can't get the Noise Suppression option to remove my static, it has no effect checked or not.(And it used to before) How can I fix this?

Hello, this is my first post here on this forum.
About a week or two, I Downgraded my Computer (Dell l502x) from Windows 8 to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bits, installed the drivers from the Dell Page, and everything worked good, except for the Realtek HD Audio Driver Version 6.0.1.6312 (Recommended for my PC on Dell Website), This is the problem:
When I Start my computer, a message shows up with the following error: "Realtek HD Audio Manager has stopped working" and then, I Have to close the message and open Realtek HD Audio Manager again from the Control Panel. I Have already tried re-installing Windows and the error keeps appearing After I Install that driver, I Was wondering if maybe that version of the driver is faulty or something (It would be weird, since it's the one Dell recommends for this computer on the page)
I Have visited many forums, including this one looking for a fix to this issue, but I have not found a solution yet. So I was wondering if someone had this issue before and has a solution to this annoying problem.
any Help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Here's a picture of the issue im having when I start Windows 7 (It's in Spanish, but I think you will understand it)

A:"Realtek HD Audio Manager has stopped working" at Windows Startup

Try the R275 version on the RealTek site. Its the latest version and will work on your PC. When you run the Realtek installation the first thing it will do is uninstall the current version you have installed and then restart the PC. After the restart it will continue and install the R275 version. This is the version I have on all my PC's for both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8 64 bit.

Download the High Definition Audio Codec R.275 64 bit OS version.

Realtek HD Audio Drivers randomly failed after about a month of perfect operation.
The icon for Realtek has vanished, and the audio manager is nowhere to be found in the control panel. Realtek is no longer seen in Device Manager as well. Playback Devices menu shows nothing related to Realtek like it previously did.

Now my front and back audio ports do not detect anything. Only the HDMI audio is working via my monitor speakers. All other peripherals are working fine as well (I don't have anything to test the mic ports).

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers multiple times, from both the version given on the Realtek site and Gigabyte site. The HD Manager is still nowhere to be found.

I tried manually installing the driver to the device manager via the "Install Legacy Driver" and receive "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" as the device status. I have NVIDIA High Definition Audio also installed and working perfectly. I tried uninstalling all of my audio drivers (including the High Definition Audio Controllers in the System Devices categories) only for it to reinstall my NVIDIA drivers that I believe supply the HDMI sound.

I am under the impression that Realtek is supposed to install to both Program Files and Program Files (x86)? It is only installing to the latter every time I try to uninstall and reinstall. A search for RAVCpl64.exe yields nothing.

I am currently running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

A:Realtek HD Audio Driver Randomly Stopped Working and Disappeared

First question what is displayed in the Device Manager, Sound Section? (All entries - post a screenshot).

HDMI sound and PC sound are separate as the HDMI sound is generated by a sound chip on the video board.

If the sound chip is working and not having a conflict, if the RealTek will not install the generic Windows installed HD Audio Driver will be used. If this is not installing either (after uninstalling the Realtek and rebooting) it does sound like a potential hardware problem.

Try this, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek sound (even if it has the error code), then Left click "Uninstall" and check the box to also uninstall the drivers (if it gives you that option). Then restart the PC and watch to see if Windows detects the sound and installs the HD Audio Driver. If it does, that says the sound chip is OK. If not, either its bad or it has not been identified and you need to reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers (one of the chipset functions is it identifies all the devices on the motherboard).

So this has been an issue for a while now,
Every time I try and install 'Realtek HD Audio Drivers', My PC doesn't install them, and says it's the drivers aren't compatible. In the sound tab in the taskbar, the 'speakers' don't show up anywhere because Realtek isn't installed. Whenever I go to device manager, under Sound, video, game controllers, It says 'NVIDIA High Definition Audio'. This is a PROBLEM as when I am making music, the volume is pretty LOW and slightly distorted, even when everything is at 100%. My laptop which also runs Windows 10, and Realtek is installed and working on that. When I used Windows 7 before I upgraded to Windows 10 64 bit for my PC, Realtek was installed and also worked fine on that. [could it be a sound card issue?]

I am currently running a HDMI cable from the screen into my graphics card, and the AUX cord from the Sub [and speakers] into the back of my screen. The sound works at the moment but the problem is that the volume is very LOW. I have tried enabling Loudness Equalization in the enhancement tab in the sound options [in the taskbar] and nothing made a difference, I have also tried running the AUX cable into the motherboard and sound card from the Sub, but no sound comes through.

Here are also pictures that show what the problems are.

Hi all,

I've just installed Windows 7 and was very happy to see all the hardware working, even my Realtek HD Audio sound card, except the front jacks.

On windows XP I could solve this by with the Sound Manager that comes with the realtek drivers, and select the "Disable front panel jack detection" check box. Unfortunately, after installing the Vista drivers, I could not start he Sound Manager app beause it said it worked only on Windows Vista.

So, if someone knows a way I could start the manager or how I could set the "Disable front panel jack detection" by modifying the registry, or ofcourse, any other way to make the front jacks work, please help.

Thanks

I just upgraded from Windows 7 home premium to windows 10. When the automatic backup that I had scheduled under windows 7 ran, I got an error. When I try to run backup manually, I get an error saying that I don't have enough space. My C drive is a 745 GB drive with only 128 used. My backup drive is one TB with 438 used and 656 free. I would think that would be enough space. It always worked under windows 7. What do I do?

A:Backup stopped working when I upgraded

I suspect that you will need to create a new backup routine in Windows 10 and it will not reuse the one set up in W7.

The backup options for Windows have changed a lot, the W7 way of doing it was removed in W8 and replaced with something called File History. Then in W10 the old W7 backup was put back in again while still keeping the File History method from W8. (In fact, File History is still the recommended Windows 10 backup method.)

This is caused by stapo64.dll, which - from name - is a driver by IDT Audio. If you are not sure about this device and/or its driver, whether or not it's actually a component of your PC, then you'll wanna check the driver using virustotal.com. The file's located in Windows/System32 directory. If the file turns up clean, then find an update for it at your audio device manufacturer or your PC vendor's website.

I have a self-assembled desktop PC - full specs in the signature below, but in short, it has an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor on a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P mainboard, which uses a Realtek Azalia ALC887 on-board sound system. I have no loudspeakers and listen to the computer sound exclusively through a Microsoft LX-1000 headset. I also have a Logitech C270 HD webcam that has its own microphone. My PC has 16 GB RAM, a SSD and a large HDD. It runs Windows 8.1 Update 1 with all Windows updates (Patch Tuesday was this week, but my problems had started before that and I'm sure they're unrelated).

Everything is working fine, except the audio, which started behaving strangely a few days ago. The problems started suddenly and I can't think of anything that could have caused them. There were no hardware changes or any intervention in the hardware, nor did I install any new software that could have messed up things.

When playing music, it sounds muffled, with the volume very low and the voice and several instruments muted, while other instruments in the background arrangement sound louder. No graphic equalizer is on, and this happens with any player software (Windows Media Player, VLC, Media Player Classic, etc.), and any source (MP3 music, audio CDs, DVDs, videos, etc.). There appears to be no hardware problem with either my headset or the onboard audio: when I run both Windows' native and Realtek's driver sound output tests, the test tune comes out loud and clear in the tested chann...

First thing to do is disable or disconnect the Web Cam. They have been known to cause various sound problems. It may not be the problem, but eliminate it as the problem.

Stereo Mix needs to be set as the Default Recording Device.

Refresh the RealTek by going to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry in the Sound section then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will reinstall the sound. This usually fixes any Windows/Sound corruptions. If this does not fix it, download and reinstall the RealTek sound drivers.

I have a dual boot Win 7, Win 8 setup. Suddenly the audio has stopped working on Win 8. (Works fine on Win 7) I checked for driver updates, even "installed" an old driver which didn't actually install. The volume control shows its trying to work, puff of green comes and goes at the bottom of the slider.

If you have had this problem and solved it please let me know. Other suggestions welcome however I've tried "cleaning" for other concerns and that made a real mess of the setups for several programs. I suppose I could do a refresh but that's equivalent to a re-install... what a pain.

I have all my programs running well on the Win 7 partition so I'm thinking of doing a Refresh. If that "refreshes" back to the original installation I assume the many many updates will be required. Any idea how long that will take?

Hello all, I just got Windows 8.1 Pro as a gift from a friend and installed it just a few hours ago, and I noticed that I am having audio problems.

Basically put, it's sort of random when this happens, but it seems to happen when sounds play rapidly, as letting a audio que play it's part will play with no popping nosies, here is an example of me showing this by using the sound that plays when you change audio:
Vocaroo | Voice message

The first 10 seconds are me playing the sound slow, with no popping. Then the sound starts popping when I change volume rapidly.

I also checked DPC Latency Checker and everything is running smoothly:

Hi wingy17, Welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the information pasted from "Problem Reports and Solutions".

Just Rename SFDAPO64.dll (Related to Sonic) and verify.

It may be due to "Fast Resume". Try this fix from microsoft.

In the past 2 days I have been unable to get my onboard audio working. I tried reinstalling windows on another drive and still no success. It shows all of the ports as disconnected except for the Digital Audio out.

I tried updating the BIOS to the new .CAP format but with no success. Not sure what test to make to see if the sound chip went bad. Ideas?

A:Asus Rampage IV Extreme Realtek ALC898 Stopped working

I assume you have tried reinstalling the motherboard chipset drivers then the RealTek sound driver from ASUS?

Is there any error status for the RealTek in the Device Manager? Try the uninstall/reinstall and see what happens. Uninstall the RealTek in the Device Manager, DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers, then restart the PC and Windows will detect and reinstall the sound.

I just built a system and used the H80 cooler. It was too noisy for my recording studio. I replaced the two cooling fans with "quiet" fans and fixed the noise problem. The quiet fans was the suggestion from Corsair tech support, that others had done.

i've recently installed win 8.1 pro N x64 and this has stopped my onboard sound card from working. my mobo is the MSI big bang xpower ii, it was working fine under win 7 home edition x64 but now refuses to do anything. when i try to test the playback device the green bar moves sporadically up and down but there is no sound at all. i have tried installing the latest drivers for everything, i even tried unistalling the device and letting windows re-detect it, which it did and then after it installed it all back to the same problem. its getting really frustrating now so i really hope its just me being stupid and someone can help!

A:Realtek audio not working after win 8.1 pro

Some sound drivers need to be updated to Win 8.1 specific drivers. The Win 7 drivers work OK with Win 8, but not Win 8.1. I even had that problem with one of my recording studio interfaces and Roland had to issue a special Win 8.1 driver for it to work.

According to what I see on the MSI site, this has RealTek integrated audio. If this is the case, RealTek has an 8.1 driver.

A:Realtek HD Audio not working at all

There could be many issues here. First of all, you have way too many audio drivers installed. This could be causing conflicts. If I were you, I would uninstall Razer Surround especially. Personally, I didnt really like the experience I got after installing it, and frankly, a lot of Razer software is pretty bad. So that would be my first guess as to why the driver isnt showing. Secondly, why do you have so many nVidia HD Audio drivers installed?

Ok, so here are some possible fixes:
1) Create a system restore (if you need help, refer to this)
2) Uninstall Razer Surround.
3) Uninstall nVidia Virtual Audio.
4) Go back to Device Manager and uninstall any remaining nVidia HD Audio or Razer Surround drivers by right clicking and pressing uninstall.
5) Restart your PC.
6) Download and install the latest Realtek HD audio driver from here.

Tell me if this solves the issue. If it does not, report back.

I have a newer Gigabyte board w/ Realtek HD Audio. I just plugged my subwoofer into the center/sub output jack but it isn't working.

When I try this on my laptop (plugging the 3.5 to rca cable into the headphone jack) the sub works as it should.

Realtek HD Audio Manager "sees" that the sub is plugged in, and that port had been checked off (within the manager) for center/subwoofer.

I also tried 5.1 mode because it allows the sub to be selected as an optional speaker. When I did that and then played the Realtek test tune the sub did work. However, if I go use youtube or play an audio track with Media Player Classic - no sub.

ok, here it is. Two days ago, I stated up my laptop from sleep mode and the sound was not working. The drivers say they are functioning, but seem to be in use and unavailable. I have had the laptop for five months and it has been working fine. I tried to check what might have taken place in the mean time between closing it and booting the system again. What I found was that there had been a restore point made shortly after I booted the system for an automatic update that didn't actually get installed. So I restored the system back before that, and tried several different points up to a month ago with no luck. I've downloaded newer drivers. Tried different driver versions, the official developer downloads and the Realtek downloads. I just installed SP1 as well, and then re-tried it again. I've tried to check for every mal-ware, virus, trojan, and anything else I could think of. I am at a complete loss for what to try.
Thanks in advance for any help I can get.

Ok, so I got a bunch of viruses the other day and had to go through a bunch of nonsense to get rid of them. I eventually fixed it and got back onto my desktop. Now my audio is not working.

When I check whats going on in the Device Manager it shows two things. First, it has "RealTek High Definition Audio" with a yellow ballon with an exclamation point in it, and "ATI Function Driver for High Definition Audio - ATA AA01" also with a yellow balloon and exclamation point.

I have tried uninstalling the RealTek Audio and re-installing with no change. There also dont seem to be any newer drivers for either of these things. I go into the RealTek folder in program files and it has an audio folder and then just an installshield folder. There are actual icons to start the RealTek Audio control panel but they will not start.

When I check these devices out in properties it says
Device Status- Device not working (code 10).

I'm not really sure where to go from here and I dont feel like buying an external sound card, so I would appreciate whatever advice anyone has.

You can find the full Realtek HD Audio driver here: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads...=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Use Add & Remove Programs or Programs & Features in the Control Panel to properly uninstall the Realtek Audio drivers prior to installing the new drivers.

Hi. I'm using 64 bit Windows, and I'm having an issue.

Applications that are 64 bit seem to play sounds fine. Browsers, some games, etc. 32 bit applications, on the other hand, don't detect a sound device. Winamp, for example, gives a "bad directsound driver" error.

DxDiag continues the problem. The 32 bit version doesn't detect a sound card, but the 64 bit version shows no problems.

I've tried updating the realtek drivers a few times. Tried cleaning beforehand or letting the installer do it. No dice.

Any bright ideas? I've attached both dxdiag outputs. Thanks.

Motherboard is a GA-P67A-UD4-B3.

A:Realtek audio working for 64 bit, but not 32?

Hi! however, welcome to 7F

Check in your C: drive and both Program Files folders; Program Files, Program Files(x86).

Do you see a realtek folder in Program Files(x86)? If not, your problem is there are no 32bit files to run the 32bit side of your OS.

If you would have had your system specs listed I could have help you find them. But since not, you will have to find the ones appropriate for your system, and install them.

I was using my computer normally, not even listening to music or had any sound on, and suddenly heard some crackling noises and since then the sound has not worked. Was just browsing the internet, nothing hard on the computer at the time.

running win7 x64 on a dell xps8300
driver version: 6.0.1.6141

I believe there is a problem with the internal sound processor on the motherboard since I am able to hear sound with headphones via the front headphone jack. I have re-installed drivers for it/rebooted, with no luck.
Not sure why, but on the sound options (attached pic) it set my realtek digital output as my default communications device, and when i set it to the default device, I couldn't hear sound from the front headphone jack.
In the realtek hd audio manager, it shows that something is plugged into the back panel, but like I said, no sound will play.
Tried disabling front jack detection, but nothing changed

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The soundcard I work with is an M-Audio Delta Series 2496 Audiophile PCI card. I've been using this card without problems for about 5 years.

The current Microsoft High Definiton Audio drivers make the sound work fine, but it doesn't seem to think there's a microphone jack on the system.

Hi guys!

I've just had a mini-heart attack! I was watching some youtube videos on my Windows Vista when my screensaver turned on. I touched my touch-pad quickly so I can continue watching my videos and there it was - my sound was gone. I looked at my volume mixer in the right bottom corner and it looked as it did before - it showed that I had 50% volume and all that normal stuff. But I couldn't hear a thing!
When I use the headphones, however, everything works fine.

So I googled it, and found this post on the forum:
http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/604877-solved-realtek-hd-audio-not.html

Did exactly the same things: the system restore - but it did not fix the problem, installation of the pack - but it also popped that it doesn't apply.

I'm getting really nervous because I don't know what is wrong. My Windows Vista is telling me that it is working normally, but I cannot hear a thing!

If it worked OK previously, use the System Restore function and restore the PC to an available restore date this BEFORE you had the problem. System Restore will fix many problems (and does not delete any user data). System Restore can be accessed from Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools.

A comment on your 64bit OS installation. 3GB of RAM is woefully inadequate and you are not getting any benefits from the 64 bit OS as the main reason to have 64 bit OS is having more than 4GB of RAM. In fact you have less useable RAM as a 64 bit OS requires more memory than a 32 bit.

Hi there,

I have recently built my own computer for the first time, and it seems to have gone pretty well. The only problem is that I can't seem to use a microphone, and it's really frustrating. First of all, when I plug the microphone into the front panel, the computer thinks i've Unplugged it. Similarly, when I take the plug out, it thinks I've put it in. I have checked the connection between the front panel sockets and the motherboard and all seems to be correct. I've also changed to AC97 and changed the BIOS settings to AC97 and that hasn't worked. The annoying thing is that when I plug the mic into the rear pink jack, it STILL doesn't work (it detects that there's a mic plugged in, but the mic just doesn't work). I've just reinstalled the realtek driver, but to no avail. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you so much for any responses.

John.

By the way my specs are ASUS P8H77-M motherboard, coolermaster elite case, intel i5 core, realtek HD audio. I also have a Geforce GTX660 graphics card connected via HDMI to a monitor, and the sound comes out of the monitor. Could this be anything to do with the problem?

A:Realtek HD Audio microphone not working

The HDMI may be the culprit. When you use HDMI, the HDMI audio is generated on board the video card and becomes the default playback device and your RealTek (listed as "Speakers" in the Sound Playback panel) is not used.

The HD Audio connector should be used as it has more automatic detection.

If you have a DVI or VGA connection to the Monitor (or another monitor you can use) try that and disconnect the HDMI cable. If you don't have regular PC speakers, you can use a headset to listen for testing.

Two other things, (1) Make sure you are using the RealTek sound driver supplied by ASUS and not the generic Windows installed HD Audio Codec. (2) in the Sound Panel, Recording section, make the "System Mixer" the default recording device (if its not set).

If your system uses an on-board (integrated) sound controller, you need to get the driver either from the PC/laptop maker's website or the motherboard manufacturer's website.

The PC maker's website should be used wherever possible though.

The reason why you should use the PC maker's website (or the motherboard maker's website) for integrated sound devices is that they often need custom-made drivers which are specially written for the PC maker. Realtek do not have these drivers for general download, they only supply them to the PC or mobo manufacturer.

This is for a friend of mine. The computer says that there is not sound driver and has this button because there's no sound. I don't know much of his computer but whenever we try to download and install the realtek high definition audio driver, it installs succesfully, asks us to restart and when it loads it STILL says that there are no drivers for sound. He said he installed a genuine windows a few minutes ago and asked me to come to his house and fix it. He hasn't installed any windows updates yet. All I know is that he has an AMD Seprom 2500+ 1.7GHz 512MB ram and that's it. Anybody know WHICH version of Realtek should we install?

A:Realtek HD Audio Device intalled. Still not working?

First thing is are you sure the motherboard has Realtek for the audio? Also the HD or AC'97 driver, as with it having an old Sempron in it is possible that it uses the older AC'97 driver.

Need to double check the model number of the motherboard to see what it has.

I just bought myself a new Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86GHzwith an Asus P5L-MX socket 775 Intel 945G + ICH7 Chipset, and a 5.1 Channel Realtek High Def onboard Audio. I'm running Vista Home Premium.

My problem is that the audio card doesn't seem to work. Vista tells me the drivers are installed properly, but when I try to play a sound, nothing comes out of my earphones. Vista also tells me that there is audio outputting - the green bar bobs up and down when I'm playing a sound.

I've downloaded every driver I can get a hold of: Vista drivers, old XP drivers I ran in XP mode, but it doesn't seem to change things. The device manager tells me that it's outputting to an optical port, but the card doesn't even have one. I've uninstalled the driver and tried to install Realtek's in their place, but Vista seems to install its own drivers in their place.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I just got a brand new Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system for my laptop.

These speakers have amazing ratings, and my friends who have had them before said the ones they had sounded amazing for them, and yet they, like me, notice the following problem in mine.

The bass is great, but for some reason my system seems too bassy. Like I know I can turn down the subwoofer, but it's as if all the low/bassy sounds are always drowning out the higher/vocals, which always seem to be a bit dulled down.

I have a Lenovo Y560p laptop with Realtek HD Audio. I was thinking perhaps I have this sound problem because it doesn't let me select 2.1 for my settings, and it's stuck on "stereo". I've tried downloading and installing drivers from Realtek's website.

I recently installed a logitech surround sound system(5 speakers and 1 subwoofer) and I have noticed that my line in isn't producing any sound when I try to play my guitar. I play my electric guitar through the rear line in jack using a program call guitar rig 4. My speakers are using the digital output on the back of my pc.
All together I am trying to play my electric guitar, using the rear line in jack with Guitar Rig 4, through my logitech surround sound using RealTek Audio HD Manager. The problem seems to be between the line in and the RealTek HD Audio Manager because the surround sound works fine with Guitar Rig 4 and any other sound but when i look at my line in volume in the volume mixer and i strum my guitar, the volume doesn't go up. Before installing my logitech system i had 2 normal speakers through which the guitar worked using the line in.
It seems as if the RealTek HD Audio Manager with digital input disables the line in even though I can change settings around on the line in.
Any suggestions? If there are any questions or any way I can make it clearer please tell me.

Hello,

I don't know what's wrong with this.I have no sound for anything. and even when I try to stream videos in the internet, the video automatically pauses for about every 12 seconds.

I don't know what to do but I think you guys can help me.
I also have a Realtek AC'97 audio for VIA(R) audio controller. I'm running Windows XP Service Pack 3. My motherboard is VIA VT8237R plus.

I'm having the same problem:
Device cannot start( code 10)

I also tried to install that vinyl_v700b
but every time the installation starts, my conputer tends to restart. That's why I can't install that one.
what's wrong? Can you guys please tell me what to do?
thnx. I cant really watch videos nor play music files.

Thanks again.
 

A:Realtek AC'97 audio controller not working -- error (code 10)

Apart from the audio driver, it is critical to have the right chipset driver installed. The VIA southbridge needs to work properly to interface with the vinyl audio processor.
So try installing the chipset driver first, and then the audio driver. And of course make sure all MS updates are installed, including the MS UAA driver.

A:Realtek ac'97 audio drive not working, error code 10

No sound?

Try the simple things first. Speakers on and working? Plug them into a MP3 player, test that they actually amplify. Speaker plug in the correct socket in the PC? ( I mean not the Mic socket?) Have you looked in 'Device Manager' for a yellow warning by the entry for your sound option? Assume you know all the above, it's most likely still to be the wrong drivers. Go into 'Device Manager' and uninstall any sound drivers. Then go to www.drivereasy.com and download their free program, scan your PC and you will get the right driver I would think. You might also find a few other drivers out of date too. And NO it doesn't cost you to use that program. Hope this helps.

I recently installed my Creative sound card (with 5.1 support) on a motherboard that already has onboard audio.

I knew there would be a problem so I tried a couple of different approaches but nothing worked so far.

Going into the BIOS, I was able to disable the realtek 97 thing located in there. I didn't uninstall the realtek 97 driver though in add/remove programs. From there I installed the creative sound drivers with a cd I received.

I got no sound from doing that. I went into the Realtek console program once booted and I can do a sound test and hear noise from each speaker though, but if I go to listen to an mp3 for example, I hear no sound.

What steps should I take to play music through my better creative soundcard? Thanks!

Hi all,

Recently moved apartments, and as part of that I shut down and packed up my computer. Upon getting it set up at the new place, I found that 1) the rear panel audio was now displaying "Not plugged in" and not producing sound, 2) the front panel headphone jack was no longer working, and 3) I had numerous playback devices from AMD, presumably for the HDMI audio.

I've found several other threads online describing a similar problem, but I haven't been able to fix my issue.

I've tried a few basic troubleshooting things, in isolation as well as in combination:Confirmed the speakers worked
Uninstalling the Realtek High Definition Audio device from Device Manager without removing the driver
Uninstalling the Realtek device and removing the driver files
Installing the latest Realtek drivers
Installing the latest AMD drivers for my graphics card
System Restore to a known good date
Editing the registry to disable jack detection - this did allow me to set Speakers as default but didn't otherwise help

I'm completely out of ideas, and considering just buying a sound card, but I thought I ought to ask here first. Any information or suggestions would be very helpful, I've attached a DxDiag export. Thanks!

But for some reason the audio stopped working. I have updated the creative soundblaster live drivers just in case. I patched them as well. Still nothing so I uninstalled the audio. I then reinstalled it and also moved it into different pci slots. Windows picks it up each time and everything seems to work fine. If I run Windows Media Player, it acts like it's playing the music. If I run system sounds through audio in the control panel, they act like they play fine. But still no sound coming from the speakers. I switched the audio card with another. It also installed fine but still no sound. I then tested the speakers on another system and they had sound on that system.

I just don't know what could have gone wrong. I went back and reenabled all services just in case there was a dependency for Windows Audio that was keeping it from working.
I just don't understand how the light on the speaker that shows its getting audio from another system works fine, but hooking it up to this one the green light doesn't come on. It's like the signal isn't being transmitted out from Windows even though the audio programs are saying it is.

Realtek HD Audio Manager is a software driver used on Windows computers. It handles recording and playback of audio programs. It is required for many audio programs to operate.

While Realtek HD Audio Drivers is a tool that allows you to listen to audio in HD on your PC.

Stereo Mix is used to transfer audio that the PC is playing to recording software such as Audacity, so that you can record what you?re hearing.

When one upgrade their OS like in your case from XP to Win7 with the same motherboard and sound card it is always advised & recommended to download the latest soundcard driver, because the only thing that had changed was the operating system.

The advice is not to go to windows for it, but to go to the motherboard manufacturer, because it would be specialised for the system rather than ... Read more

A:The Realtek Audio Driver stops working,want to record Music

I didn't see anything about this on the Replay web site, but does this software require the "System Mixer" to be available and use that as the source for recording? Usually, the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix in some systems) is required to be able to record streaming audio.

Check the Recording Devices in the Control Panel, Sound Panel. The System Mixer should be set as the default playback device. With the system mixer, whatever you hear on the PC speakers can be recorded.

Hi

I changed motherboard, for ASrock 960GV-GS FX, and installed windows 7.
Problem:

Rear audio panel not working, if I plug a headset, I don't hear sound, mic is not recongnized.
If I plug in front panel, I hear LOW sound, mic not recongnized.

Mic just doesnt move any green bar, nor generates audible sound in windows recorder.

Rear panel (analogic) is always grayed out no matter what.

In audio properties I can pick front panel, but microphone is like dead (works ok in other pc).

Bios: tried enabling both front and rear, and variations like: just one of 2, both in "auto" and so on. Nothing improves.

Drivers: tested several, I'm using those provided with motherboard.

Motherboard connections: everything looks good, tried, even disconnecting front panel, and using jumpers on audio, but even in that case I can't get the rear panel active.

Finally I activated all kind of devices to see if I can make some work, looks like this:



Volume tested.

If you are then maybe the board has a fault mate.

Hello, I recently got a set of 2.1 HiVi Swan M-10 speakers and hooked them up to my laptop until I can finish my build. When I first hooked them into my E55-A Toshiba Satellite the bass wasnt coming from the sub in fact it was combining into my L/R speakers making them sound terrible. A quick uninstall and reinstall of Realtek fixed that problem.

Alas, now the sound is great but every time I shut down my computer, or restart, or put in sleep, there is no sound at all. When I try to click adjust my levels I see the audio levels go up for the "ding" but nothing plays. I have found a workaround where I just need to disable then re-enable Realtek and the sound works again. Obviously I can do this every time but I really rather find a permanent solution.

This laptop has had problems before where the sound cuts out in a game and does not come back till a restart, but it wasn't until I hooked up my 2.1 system that the problem is expected every single time I start my computer from a rested state. I am using Realtek HD Audio driver version 6.0.1.6909 and my sound is integrated into my laptop's motherboard.

If anyone could help me out here I would appreciate it greatly!

Hi.

I have been working on a Dell Inspiron 531S and am unable to get the video, and now audio, drivers loaded and working correctly. Here?s the deal:

According to the Dell tag# info online, this cpu uses either the onboard Nvidia nforce 6150SE n430 video card or an ATI 1300 Pro. There is no external video card so the Nvidia should be right. This is confirmed by programs like HWinfo32. However, someone did install ATI catalyst software at some earlier point.

At first, only the video card driver was not loaded properly and so Vista (Home Premium 32-bit) was in VGA-compatible mode. I tried to load NVIDIA Nforce 258.96 WHQL drivers for Vista 32-bit, which completed without errors. Upon rebooting, though, I could see in Device Manager that the drivers didn?t take. I have also tried Dell?s recommended R166208 (an executable that loads Nvidia?s MCP61 ver.A01 drivers) and no matter what I do, Device Manager says I now have an ?unknown device? or a VGA-compatible display adapter. Unloading and reinstalling did not help. I noticed SP2 was not loaded so tried installing it to see if that would help. It loaded no problem, but then I saw (as another update) a Realtek audio driver update. I let it load and now have no audio.

I have tried both Dell?s recommended Realtek driver (R180772, which is for the ALC888 HD audio device and loads Realtek?s R1.85 audio drivers) and a newer R2.51 version for Vista that I got from Realtek?s site. Both install ... Read more

My computer's onboard audio recently stopped working. The Realtek High Definition Audio Speakers suddenly show as "Not plugged in" in the Playback devices dialog.

Coinciding with this, five new devices, all "Speakers," all showing as "Ready" or one of the defaults, have appeared: WsAudio_DeviceS(1) through WsAudio_DeviceS(5).

None of these WsAudio_DeviceS produce any audio when tested; I have tried this with both my speakers and some headphones.

The Realtek Digital Output still appears as "Ready," which isn't useful, given that I don't have any S/PDIF devices.

I have tried connecting some wireless headphones with a Bluetooth dongle I had lying around, but I couldn't get them to work very well (nor could I back when my speakers were working). Recording with a USB microphone works fine, but I haven't tried it through the onboard audio Line In jack.

Looking at other, similar problems on forums, I found many people who were able to resolve this problem by changing the settings in the Realtek HD Audio Manager, which I don't have for my MSI PH61A-P35 motherboard. The only effect that reinstalling the audio drivers had for me was uninstalling the drivers for my USB keyboard for no reason.

Does anybody have any ideas about how I can get audio to work? I haven't been able to find my old PCI soundcard, but I'll try that if I find it.

Is HDMI set as the default audio playback device? HDMI audio either is generated internally in the video card or is fed from a digital audio S/PDIF connection on the motherboard. Since you were inside, either the cable connection has been disturbed or if that is not how yours works, reseat the video card and see if that helps (Reseat - with the PC powered off, remove the video card then reinsert making sure its fully and correctly seated on the motherboard).
