How do I remove Lenovo HD Audio Manager?

Q: How do I remove Lenovo HD Audio Manager?

I just purchased a Lenovo Ideacenter 330K desktop and I have run into a problem with the audio manager.

The system is using a standard Realtek Audio chipset and it has front and real audio jacks but the problem I keep running into is that unlike other realtek control panels, the Lenovo doesn't allow me to split the front and rear audio jacks.

The only advanced option that it gives me is to disable detection of the front jack.

There is no reason for this functionality to even exist. Realtek allows to split the two devices with it's audio manager but I can't find the files I need to remove and I have already tried to update the files which is supposed to uninstall the old driver package and install the new drivers but the audio manager is untouched.

Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: How do I remove Lenovo HD Audio Manager?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: How do I remove Lenovo HD Audio Manager?

Generally, the vendor supplied drivers are the best to use as each vendor customizes the software to how they implement the hardware. If you use non-Lenovo drivers there is a possibility that everything will not work correctly with the RealTek - this isn't with every vendor but most.

Recently, I started getting problems with my audio on my alienware X51 R2 (I'm on windows 10). After a long time of searching for solutions all over the internet like on forums, I've come to the point where the only possible solution to my problem is using the realtek hd audio manager. The problem is: I can't access it on my alienware device since it is completely replaced by your poor version of it "Alienware Audio" wich does not have any of the options I need. How could I restore the original version of this software or at least disable the alienware audio version?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and I have a problem with sound. When I plug my speakers in front panel I have output audio, but in back panel I don't.

My Audio Manager looks like this, but front panel is enabled and back panel is disabled. It does not recognize back (ANALOG) jack.

I tried with settings in this manager but without success, I cheked Control Panel > Sound and followed instructions but still no sound if speakers is in back panel. What to do?

I was looking in my Device Manager the other day, when I noticed something odd: there were two devices related to Lenovo Power Management.   I looked at the properties of both of them and this is what I found:  The first one, "Lenovo PM Driver", is the one that shows up for download on the support page for the Lenovo T430 as it matches the version number. I have no idea what the second one "Lenovo Power Manager" is, at nothing with its version number appears on the website at all. Does anyone know what the second one is and if should it be there?

A:Lenovo PM Device vs. Lenovo Power Manager

I do not know if it SHOULD be there or not BUT I show the same 2 drivers with the same 2 version numbers on my X1Y3.  By the way Lenovo Power Manager was installed by windows 10 Update not through Lenovo Vantage for me.  Looking at windows drivers update on my laptop I traced it to the below link.

A:No 2.1 Audio option in Realtek HD AUdio Manager

A 2.1 speaker system uses "Stereo". There is no specific setup for 2.1.

A 2.1 speaker system only uses the Green speaker jack, which is 2 channel (stereo). Other systems such as 5.1 or 7.1 use more than just the Green speaker jack and have setups for those.

I just bought a notebook Lenovo G450 and I had drivers not found problem. My OS is Windows XP SP2. In Device Manager, there are four "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus" device with exclamation mark. Below is the link to the screenshot of my device manager (pardon me, you have copy-paste the link manually since my post count is still below 5 so I cannot post link/image here):

There is no sound problem since I had successfully installed the sound driver from lenovo (The name is "Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221" as you can see on the screenshot above) and the sound is working without problem. I also had installed Microsoft UAA Bus Driver before installing the sound driver.

I had tried installing realtek and nvidia high definition audio driver and all required drivers from lenovo (http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=370748), but still no avail. The four yellow exclamation marks is still exist.

So I need help to identify what actually are the devices that shown as "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus"? And where can I get the driver for that devices?

These are the device IDs:

On my lenovo T61 I just installed windows xp and there are quite a few drivers missing that i am looking for. I found what I thought was the solution to the audio problem here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...cid=MIGR-67816
but it didn't seem to work. Since I don't have internet on the computer i just switched to xp, I downloaded what was on that website onto a usb drive and then installed it on the computer I'm trying to fix. It still says that I am missing the "audio device on high definition audio bus". Shouldn't the file at the above link take care of the problem? Anyone know where I could find the driver I need?

A:audio device on high definition audio bus missing for xp pro on lenovo t61 pc

bad thing about IBM's website is they sometimes post more than one driver. Look through the list to see if there are anymore audio drivers for Xp listed.

I could look, but IBM's site needs the unit type in order to look for drivers/manuals. 4 diget number on the white sticker on bottom of the laptop. for example

- ThinkPad R61(type):
- 7732, 7733, 7735, 7736, 7737, 7738, 7742
- 7743, 7751, 7753, 7754, 7755
- 8914, 8918, 8919, 8920, 8927, 8928, 8929
- 8942, 8943, 8944, 8945, 8947, 8948, 8949

those are laptop types that IBM uses, am sure you noticed that on the page you linked :)

Hello, I have a Lenovo Yoga 710 15 80V50000U laptop and I am trying to add memory. I have opened the back but there seems to be a metal box/cover around the ram that I can't figure out how to remove. There are several groups (of 2) clips around each side of the metal cover and also many holes on the top/sides. Do I remove it by prying the clips and/or removing screws? If there are screws, I don't see them, could they be inside those little holes (and if so which holes)?  Thank you, Jan

A:Lenovo Yoga 710 (Remove Internal RAM Cover) - How Do I Remove It?

I have a Lenovo G510 running Windows 10, upgraded from 8.1 long ago.  I'm not sure if there was a recent update that caused this problem, but one evening everythings was fine, and I know because I fell asleep with the "Simply noise" website playing white noise, and when I woke up, there was no sound.  I tried all the normal fixes (reinstalled drivers in device manager, downloaded latest drivers directly from Lenovo website and tried them, restarted Audio Endpoint and Audiosrv in taskmanager, even went into regedit and checked that the value for the audio endpoint was correct, but made no registry changes) all to no avail.I was beginning to think that there was a wiring problem and was getting ready to open it up and look around, but decided to try something else first.  I put in my ubuntu live cd and restarted without installing ubuntu.  All audio works in Ubuntu. Speakers, headphone and mic jacks, and I even tried my usb>headphones/mic adapter and everything works.  I'm planning to dualboot ubuntu while waiting to find a fix in windows, but I've never had a dedicated Linux machine so I'd like to still be able to turn to Windows since I'm about to go back to school in a few weeks.Please let me know if there's a fix out there for this that I haven't tried, or if I need to post more information to check for other problems that may have caused this.  Thanks in advance! -Tronk

This happened today: I was watching a TV show on my computer and the sound was ok.I unplugged my headphones and the audio symbol in the taskbar had a cross.It said "no audio output device is installed".No audio would come out of the PC.Apparently, the audio drivers were uninstalled, probably by some Windows 10 update. I downloaded the drivers from Lenovo's site and, when I installed them, the sound quality was awful and sound would take exactly 6 seconds after I hit play on Spotify or YouTube for the sound to actually come out, ie, I'd miss the first 6 seconds.I called support and they uninstalled the drivers and proceeded to do what I had done before: download the drivers again and re-install them.The audio quality improved but the 6 seconds with no audio remained and here I am now. Since they couldn't find the solution and told me to to a factory reset. But I'm looking into an alternate solution before factory resetting the laptop. Dows anyone have an idea of what could be wrong?

I have an ASUS M5A88-M motherboard with Realtek HD onboard audio. I rebuilt the machine bringing it back to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and now have no audio. All indications show that audio is playing meaning the green bar shows movement when audio is happening. The default sound device is set to speakers

Here's what I've done so far to try to fix:Updated the motherboard BIOS to the latest version
Updated the latest Realtek drivers
Uninstalled the Realtek drivers and rebooted
Confirmed onboard audio is enabled in the BIOS
Confirmed the speakers and headphones are working on other computers

Control Panel / Sound shows the Speakers as the DEFAULT device and as mentioned when I play something I can see the green indicator bar moving up and down but no sound.

I've attached images of Device Manager, Control Panel-Sound and the Speaker volumne.

I don't know what else to try here as I've already spent hours trying to fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am having some weird issues when trying to use my microphone on my laptop (Rog G551, Win10). Basically, when I plug in a pair of headphones and I check "Headphones' in the Realtek HD manager I can't use the microphone at all. On the other hand, if I check "Headset", the mic works, but I can only hear from the left cup.

Any input is appreciated. Cheers!

A:Audio Manager mic/audio problem

audio settings in win10 will need checking to see if all is set correctly. this page has a guide and steps to follow to ensure all is ready and correct.


if not, the following links will direct you to driver reinstall and the manufacturers site for potential driver updates. the full id of the machine is required when searching the Asus site:

try this, Open Start, enter Device Manager, and select it from the list of results. Under Sound, video and game controllers, select your sound card, open it, select the Driver tab, and select Update Driver. If Windows doesn?t find a new driver, look for one on the device manufacturer?s website and follow their instructions

see if there are any latest updates for win10 on the Asus site.

I have five speakers and one subwoofer connected to a Samsung HT-Z310 DVD-player, and then connect that to my MacBook using AUX 2.

(I have no idea what AUX 2 is, but that's what the tiny display on the DVD-player says.)

The problem is that the Mac only plays stereo on them.

When I open Realtek HD Audio Manager, in the "Speakers" tab, and the "Speaker Configuration" subtab, "Speaker Configuration" is set to "Stereo" by default. And it's grayed out, so I can't change it.

Further than that, I only have two options: "Full-range Speakers" - "Front left and right" and "Headphone Virtualization".

I have also tried "Control Panel", "Hardware and Sound", "Sound", marking the speakers and clicking "Configure", but the only option displayed in the list is "Stereo".

I have no idea what's wrong. The rear speakers work, but play the same sound as the front speakers.

It's been a year since I migrated from Windows XP to Windows 7 which I downloaded Realtek HD Audio Manager R2.70 and audio has been working fine except the only issue it didn't come with 'Stereo Mix' preventing capability to record sound direct from the soundcard. It took me 14 months to restore Stereo Mix as each time I was told to update audio drivers I would update HD Audio Manager so what is the difference between these two Realtek ?

I installed Realtek HD Audio Driver R2.72 last night and it restored Stereo Mix which now enables me to record system sound whilst using screen recorders.

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

I have a Gigabyte P35-DS3L mobo that uses the program call "Realtek HD Audio Manager".

Several months ago, after several hours of trying, I was able to cchange some of the settings in the program allowing me to use my front audio ports on my computer as a 2nd audio Input/output device.

This allowed me to use a headset in games and vent similar to the way a Xbox headset works. (Only voices comes through your headset's speaker, and all game sounds come through your Tv/Comp speakers)

I recently reformatted my computer and since then I am unable to figure out how to change my settings where before I uninstalled it.

I figured out how to enable a 2nd audio output in the "Realtek HD Audio manager" program, but the only sound input that I am able to adjust are: Wave, SW Synth, and CD. And I am so far unsuccessful in adding any other Input types.

I know it is the same program, because It was installed from the same CD. and it is upto date.

Any advice would be helpful. Thank you

Hi there

Someone pleeeeease help me. This is driving me nuts! I have an Acer TravelMate 2480 Notebook running Windows XP Professional. It came pre-installed with the Realtek HD Audio Manager. For the first few months all was well and then I started having problems with sound. The on board speakers work well but intermittently I would experience problems when plugging either the headphones or external speakers in. Sometimes it would work, sometimes it wouldn’t. The on board speakers do cut out (mute) when externals are plugged in which is correct but no sound is heard from them (externals). If I then unplug the jack the on board speakers work. Initially I thought it was a hardware problem with the actual headphone socket but too many people in forums scattered around the net have had the same problem that I seem to feel it’s a software issue. I followed a lengthy piece of advice this afternoon which involved completely uninstalling the Realtek program and drivers from the system (including the registry) and re-installing the latest version which I downloaded but I am still experiencing the same problem. Is this problem familiar to anyone and does anyone know of a solution? I need good quality sound for the work I am doing and the on board speakers are not sufficient.

Well, I re-formatted the other day and have a problem that I've never had before, so here goes.

I currently have my Hi-Fi and my headphones plugged into my machine, they used to work perfectly together. I mean that the same sound off every program played into both of them at the same time. If I didn't want to use my speakers, I'd simply turn the volume down on the front of it.

Now, after re-formatting, I can't get them to combine in Realtek HD Audio Manager. I don't know if this is to do with RHDAM or if it's a Volume Mixer problem. It's seriously starting to annoy me. Even if I could just choose the programs that each device used (So that I could put all programs onto both of them, that would be great.)

I'm using the front Headphone and Mic socket for my headphones (Pink & Green.)

For my Hi-Fi I'm using the back black and pink sockets. There are 4 other sockets that I could use, but I've tried them all and to no avail. The other colours, just in case it's relevant are blue, black, green and bronze.

Can someone help me please?

Thank you.

P.S. I searched and couldn't find anything that related to this exact problem.

P.P.S. I've found that, the same as before, if I blow into my mic, or move it, the sound comes through my Hi-Fi speakers.

I have Realtek HD audio manager for 5.1 suround sound speakers. When I play music from online, pandora.com, I only get music from my front side speakers and sub, but if the music is saved on my computer all the speakers play.

Is it called upmixing, to get all the speakers to play? Can I get all the speakers to play all the time?

Having some issues. My friend just downloaded it onto my computer that he made for me, and I've never used it before.

It's not letting me have a headphone. I'll plug in the headphone and microphone jacks but it still plays through the main speakers and I can not figure out how to get my mic to work and how to get it to go to do the headsets.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

My computer uses Realtek's HD Audio Manager, and I have 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, and a subwoofer. So, I set the manager to 5.1 and unchecked the box labeled center speaker to indicate that I don't have one. However, the center and subwoofer output use the same jack, and my subwoofer receives no signal when I uncheck the center speaker. If I leave the center speaker box checked, it tries to make my sub act as a center speaker, making my music and videos sound horrible. If I plug my iPod in and have the center speaker option unchecked, then it will use my sub. I run Windows Vista x64 and I do not use an external sound card.

does anyone know of a decent audio output manager. my problem is this
i am using a laptop running Vista, and i have a "dock" setup with a monitor and 5.1 sound card with 5.1 speakers hooked up, i also have a creative fatality headset. both hook up using USB... i also need to use my laptop speakers when not "docked".
when i game i like to use the headset because of the mic and great surround sound, but when i listen to music and basicaly everything else i use the 5.1 speakers, the only way i can do this is to right click the little speaker icon in the taskbar and select sounds and playback tab and then change the default audio device.
is there a program that will do this for me?

i would really enjoy something where i can assign programs to each device. something that i can tell, hey bf2 uses the headset, itunes uses 5.1 speakers, ventrillo = headset, internet = 5.1 speakers, and on and on, so that way when i start my games it will automaticaly come through headsets.

pls help me, all this menu toggling and switching default devices back and forth is peeving me :P

thx guys

So basically my Mic aint working...

This has something to do with the wonderful invention that is Realtek Sound Manager.

but I dont know what.. or how to fix it...

and it's driving me nuts.. this comp is like 3 months old, a bit early for it to start acting up...

Thr problem is that when I use the push to talk button in either counter strike source, teamspeak or messenger, it just relays my computer sound from the speakers threw the mic (or something like that) so instead of my jammering the other players only hear Game sound or themself.

Can anyone help me??

Hi all.

I have Realtek HD Audio Manager installed, but the option buttons don't make any sound when I click them.

Under the Sound Effects tab there's a range of choices: 'stone corridor', 'bathroom', etc. There's no sound when I click them. But if I click the graphic speaker units under the tab 'Audio I/O' - I get sound.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thank you.

was this prog for xp or vista originally?? might want to check on the vendors sight for the info you need. if it's a "slim shady" version.. you might want to run it in compatability mode. right click it and go thru properties to make it so.

I have just purchased an advent computer using vista home premium. I has come with a Realtech HD AUdio manager. The problem is that i have stuff on my computer that I would like to re record onto cool edit. Realtech does only has tabs for speakers and microphone. It will not pick up an internal line in order to record onto cool edit. Have I got the bottom of the range audio manager??? My old computer had a great one that worked fine. Can anyone help it not to fix this one, what is a good one to get.

Cheers Billy

You are looking for the stereo mix control. Vista has hidden it. Gimme 5 minutes and ill dig it up for you, although it may not solve your problem. I had the same issue not too long ago on my friends desktop. We found and enabled the stereo mix, but still could not record internally.
