I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey all!

I am trying to get my headset (which plugs into the Front-Green-Out) to work along side of my speakers (which plug into my Rear-Green-Out).

Both are being recognised and both work, but not at the same time. That's because in the screen where you manage your Audiodevices you can only have 1 "standarddevice", which it uses to play the audio.

Is there any way to have more than 1 standarddevice? (or another way to make both work at the same time).

EDIT:
By the way, for anyone using the same motherboard as me: Asus is not supporting it anymore =/. I use the P5K-EPU sounddrivers. Also, if you want the front jacks to work you have to set them in the BIOS to AC97, not HD-audio.

A:Front headset and speakers at the same time?

I know on mine when I plug into the front panel it disables my rear inputs. I don't think there is a way to do that using the same driver. What I do though is use a sound card for my speakers/monitors and use the onboard for my headset. I have WMP set to my sound card so I can listen to DVD/music through my monitors while gaming through my headset simultaneously. Helps when the Mrs is scrapbooking and wants to listen to music.

This is possibly a dumb question but here goes ...

I have a sounblaster live audio card with the following back connections

Analogue/Digital out (connected to my surround speakers)
Line in
Mic in
Line out 1 (connected to my surround speakers)
Line out 2 (connected to my surround speakers)

I need to use a headset for openwengo/skype ... I have a headset, the mike lead I plug into 'Mic in' and it works a treat, the earphones ..... ?

Is there a way to split the 'Line out 1' output so I can connect my earphones to it ? (According to docs Line out 1 can also be used for headphones).

Any suggestions

Cheers

Hi guys, I just recently got windows 7, but I can't get any sound to my headset! My green main output is in the back, but I broke off a piece of a headset plugin some months ago. When I had XP, it worked fine plugging in my headset in the front, but now when I got win7, the broken piece seems to be stealing all my sound. How do I tell windows to send sound to the black output in the front, rather to the broken off plugin in the main green output in the back?
Here is a pic of how my device panel-thing looks like. I've tried turning on and off all these things, but it none seems to be the headset I have plugged in the front, as nothing works.

Btw. The post I'm quoting from the pic is from another forum.

A:Broken piece of a headset is messing with my outputs!

Plugging various component jacks into sockets switches some functions. If you break a jack off, any functions it disables remain disabled. The only way to fix that is to extract the broken piece. Plugging headphones into some sockets automatically disables the loudspeakers for instance.

Reassigning sockets might work for some things, but the only really sensible thing to do is remove the broken jack.

I must stress once again that using various "workarounds" to try and solve problems with broken or otherwise faulty equipment is a very bad idea.

I have a SoundMAX Superbeam directional array and people always hear echos in my transmitting on ventrilo because it picks up my speakers sound. so I got a really nice sony headset and plugged it into the jack where the speakers used to be plugged in and now it wont pick up all appropriate sounds like youtube because the computer still things its speakers and not a head set. My sound manager says that any headset should be plugging into the "front panel jack" and I have no front panel jack I have an Xclio full tower computer case and there is nothing but huge fan in the front.

Hello. My audio / headset jacks on the front panel of my PC running Windows 8.1 will not work. I had the Beats Audio Panel installed and was using the IDT High Definition Audio Codec and had rear sound through my speakers only. After checking your forum, I unistalled that driver (and Beats Audio) and installed the High Definition Audio Device driver only (no Beats Audio) and both rear jacks work. So, I can get sound and recording in the rear, but not it the front. I hope you can help me.

Hello

So three days ago I wiped all of my drives and installed Windows 10. I have a Corsair Vengenace 2100 headset. I installed the realtek drivers from ASUS download section for my motherboard and then I installed the headset drivers.

The problem is that my headset does not record anything through the microphone if I set it to be the default device for audio output. If I have my other computer speakers as the default output device my microphone works just fine.

This goes for all the USBs in the back of the motherboard. The headset works just great if I plug in the wireless reciever in the front of the computer.

I have tried to reinstall the drivers multiple times and checked a bunch of different settings in the sound manager in windows but nothing seems to work.

Have also googled all kinds of things but nothing seems to relate to my problem.

I do not have any external sound card plugged into my computer.

Thanks for any help provided!

EDIT: Can be closed as I found the win 10 forum after I made the thread. Sorry!

I can't figure out how to fix this. I noticed that, when I'm watching a video, my headset's mic will relay the audio coming into my headset. Disabling Stereo Mix doesn't fix it. The physical controller that's on my headset cable doesn't stop it from happening, as even if I turn the volume knob all the way down and flick the mute switch, it's still picking up the audio. Muting my headset from within the computer stops the mic from hearing it, as does switching to my speakers that are plugged into the front jack. My headset is a 3.5mm jack type plugged into the back of the computer, directly into the motherboard.

A:Installed new USB Headset NOW no speaker audio even if I unplug the headset

Yeah, my USB headset was a little weird at first as well.

Try going into your volume control (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control):
1. Click Options
2. Properties
3. Change the mixer device from the USB headset to your speakers.

Should work.

Also should note you can change the output settings in most audio software (for example: Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.) so if you can't hear anything from your speakers when using those programs, try fiddling with those settings as well. I know for Winamp it's Options > Preferences > Plug-ins > Output > double-click the plug-in you use (mine is out_ds.dll) and again change it to your speakers using the drop down menu.

Hey,

the topic pretty much says it. I bought myself a new headset(C-media headphone set or something) which uses a USB-port instead of an original sound-port-thing. The problem is, whenever I plug the headset in the USB-port pretty much nothing happens and I can't get the sound in the headset, it just stays in the speakers...

It used to be no problem when I used a headset with the sound-port on the motherboard to just change it. Anyone have any suggestions on what I might do? :(

edit: forgot to say that it works just fine after rebooting the computer.

Thank you

With my old headset i used to have a blast recording sounds/music coming out of my comptuer directly using wave out. Often for MSN voice clips and such.

I haven't changed anything, but now that i have this new headset, the only recording i seem to be able to do is voice recording in sound recorder, i can't seem to record wave out mix on sound recorder, and can't record anything whatsoever in msn voice clips.

I can hear voice clips sent to me though, strange thing is, when someone invited me to an audio conversation earlier, i got the annoying ringing noise alright , but i couldn't hear anything.

I've searched around a lot about this topic, but after hours and days of searching, I've found nothing to fix my problem. I have a headset that has speakers and a microphone (3.5mm jacks) that work fine, except when I'm trying to talk to someone using the microphone, they can hear the sounds coming from my headset (youtube videos, game sounds etc). I've tried installing the Realtek HD Audio Codec but it disappears after it finishes installing and after I restart (although it still remains in the Programs and Features uninstall page), the program files for it is empty with the exception of RtlUpd64.exe which doesn't do anything when executed and a few other files.
In device manager, the things I have under sound, video and game controllers are Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus and the Intel Display Audio. I've updated everything to the latest. Also, I recently system restored my computer and before I did I had IDT High Definition Audio Drivers, but after updating they were changed.
I think the problem is that stereo mix is enabled somewhere or something to do with my drivers as when I tried plugging my headset into my brother's computer, it worked fine (he has the Gigabyte Realtek Audio Manager thing and was able to adjust the stereo mix settings).
If there's a program or workaround to this, or how to disable the stereo mix like through registry or something, please let me know.

A:Headset mic recording sounds through headset?

You are correct, that is the usual cause of this problem. And aside from being set in the drivers, it can sometimes be set in the application (used for the communication).

That model does appear to use the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio chipset. The problem is likely in the fact that you upgraded to Win10 and I don't see that HP supports nor supplies drivers for Win10 (I only see drivers for 7 and 8). Which means you are using generic drives supplied by Windows. The generic Windows drivers often work well enough to get hardware functional, but quite often don't support all hardware or all features of all hardware.

I have a almost broken headset, but the microphone still works fine, The microphone is connected on the wire right before the headset, Its not actually touching the headset itself.

Would this microphone still work if the headset was cut off?

Sorry but I can't manage to take a photo but

A:Will a Headset microphone still work if I cut it off the Headset?

Is the microphone actually supported by the headset, by that I mean when the set is on your head is the microphone carried close to your mouth so you have both hands free. If this is the case then cutting off the headset will mean the microphone will not have any way of being held near your mouth.
If you cut it off you will have to be very careful you don't cut the wires for the microphone & it's possible that there is a common return wire for the earpieces & the microphone in the form of a shielded cable, so it would be very difficult, but if you have skills in this area it could be done.

A:Hooking up my Speakers and Headset at the same time?

Depends on your PC and what audio I/O jacks you have. The GREEN jack is the Speaker (or can be used for headset or line out). If there is a second Speaker/Line out jack you could use that, however most new systems only have extra output jacks for surrond systems and that won't do you any good.

If you have a headphone jack on the front of the PC, and again depending on what you have, some systems have a sound control panel and allow configuring either both the front headphone and rear speaker are both active or the headphone jack cuts off the rear speaker (usually the default mode).

Post some system specs, or better yet fill in the My System Specs so we know what we are dealing with.

As the Title says.

My Speakers and Internal Speakers along with the Microphones are screwing up.

This problem only started today, I haven't got a clue why and I haven't changed any settings whatsoever, Everything was working fine until one moment they weren't.

I've gone into Sound to try and fix the issue, I set my Sounds as Default for the headset, and I still have them playing through both, and I did the same for the Microphone, only on that one.

In Playback Devices, Speakers / Headphones is one and Communication Headphones is another, even if I disable the first, I can't get the second as Default for both, it won't let me have Default Device for only the Communication Headphones.

Under Recordcing it's much the same issue except the first one is Internal Mic, it's allowed me to put the Microphone / Line In as Default, except it won't pick up sounds from the Mic, only the Internal Mic even if it's not enabled.

So any help would be useful, searched your other threads 4 or 5 on here and none have been helpful in fixing my issue as they're different to mine, so please don't revert me to another thread.

A:Headset Mic & Sounds Playing At The Same Time

First thing, do you have the correct Dell sound driver. Non-Dell sound drivers tend to not work or not work correctly. This is the correct Dell IDT sound driver:
Drivers and Downloads | Dell [United States]
The "Speakers" should be the default playback device. In the Recording section along with the mic you should have the System Mixer (could be called Stereo Mix) and that should be the default recording device.

I'm not sure about the IDT, but many systems have a sound device control panel, located in the Control Pane/Hardware and Sound and they can be configured for both headset and speakers at the same time or configured that the headset mutes the speakers.

ctanner, welcome to the forums.

In Windows default audio settings, no it isn't possible.

You likely don't need to reinstall the Creative drivers. You simply need to select the Creative audio chipset as the default audio source. You can only have a single audio chipset set as default, so you cannot use the Creative chipset and the USB chipset at the same time.

Hi all,

I recently upgraded from Windows 7 to 8.1 using the same hardware as before, and have encountered a strange problem that I can't find the solution to.

I'm using an Alesis IO|2 usb audio interface (which my speakers are connected to) and a Razer Megalodon usb headset. Both are completely functional when used independently (ie. if I'm not using my headset, everything plays through my speakers fine, and vice versa).

However, there are many situations where I'm used to having audio coming through my headset and speakers at the same time. For example, if I'm on a Skype call I'm used to having the call audio coming out of my headset while still being able to play music etc out of my speakers.

The problem: Since using Windows 8.1, when trying to do this, both my speaker and headset audio breaks down completely into sporadic glitchy & loud crackles. If I want to listen to music while talking on Skype I have to disable my speakers (in windows playback devices screen) to force all audio out of my headset.

Neither of my USB devices has drivers associated with them, and I have the latest firmware on both, leading me to believe this is some problem with Windows. Has anyone got any ideas? I've spent hours trying to resolve this and have yet to even find someone with the same problem...

Not very knowledgeable about this so excuse any obvious stupidity!

Due to an ongoing problem with my (previously OK) wirelss network I have ditched it and my PC is connected to my NTL cablemodem directly via ethernet. This works fine connection-wise etc. I Also use a laptop wirelessly but, since the cablemodem isn't connected to my wireless router (actiontec R3010UW) it obviously can't access the network any more.

My question is, can I leave the PC connected to the cablemodem via ethernet and somehow connect the wireless router (to the modem?) so that I can have wireless access to the laptop as well? There is a spare USB socket on the modem and the router - can I connect the two if I use the correct cable or is it impossible to run wireless and wired connections from the same modem?

There might even be a better solution to the problem - any suggestions very much appreciated!

Hey

Is there any way i can have the speakers in, and the headset and revert back to each without going at the back and changing them? Any help appreciated

A:Headset not working, front ports not working

First, its possible inside your computer case, there is just a loose cable that is causing the problem with the front jacks on your computer. Check inside, right behind where the earphone jack is for a cord running to somewhere on your motherboard or Sound card.

If that dosn't work,
Do you have a CD/DVD player with a earphone jack and have you tried that?
Assuming its the port that is bad itself and not just loose, you could check in at radio shack, bestbuy, or newegg.com for a cord that splits the output. If you get lucky you might find one with a chanel select that will allow you to swap which recieves the output.
The other option, from radio shack I got a Bluetooth USB adapter for $20 and a good pair of BT earphones, again purchased online for cheap (I recommend samsung BT500 earphones).

Another alternative, my speakers have a earphone jack in them as well (the computer speakers, as well as the reciever I currently have my sound card plugged into).

If you have a quality home theater set up, for $80 on new egg you can pick up a good soundcard with optical, Coax, and AV out which you plug into your home entertainment center that again will allow you to use headphones.
Good Luck

I'm having a rather annoying problem, i use this surround system: Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speaker System (Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speaker System)

And recently something has gone wrong, the front speakers have stopped playing and only my rear/centre and bass are working. my first conclusion would be they failed ofcourse, but there is still a humming sound coming from both of them + they stopped working at the exact same instant.

Realtec HD audio still recognises all 6 of my speakers, and if i do a soundcheck on my front speakers it plays sound , but the sound is played through my rear speakers and when i test my rear speakers the sound is also played through my rear speakers (only softer)

I didn't used to have this problem and i'm not aware of any changes i've made.

Thanks in advance,

edit: i have tried to plug them in and out. I've also checked the wiring, if i put the wires of a front speaker into a rear one the front speaker still refuses to work and the rear speaker works. so i doubt the problem lies there.

A:Front and rear speaker problems.

Have you checked for the windows automatic updates. Go into the settings for your speakers and try to reset them.

Have you tried this speaker system on a different computer?

Do all the speakers connect to the base system like The Creative systems.

The Humming sounds like feedback or electrical interference, have the speakers been moved or an ac source or cable added.

Hey, my headset was working fine in Windows XP but ever since I upgraded to Windows 7 it hasn't worked, I've tried pretty much every setting in the Realtek command center, updating drivers and so on but nothing seems to work, all I can record is static noise

Any chance someone can help me out here.

Hi all,
I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Window 8.1. My desktop has a front audio and mic jack and also a rear audio and mic jack. While watching movies , I connect my rear jack to a large set of speakers and for better voice clarity I plug in earphones onto the front audio panel. This setup was working fine in Windows8.1 and below. But now after upgrading, if I plug in rear audio jac, I loose the sound in the front and vice versa. Kindly help.
In addition, during the fresh install of Windows 10, I did not install any drivers for monitor, default inbuilt sound card of motherboard,inbuilt lan card,etc. Do I need to install these as they seem to be functioning except well except for the audio part which I mentioned above.

A:Front and Rear Audio cannot be used simultaneously !

This was resolved by installing latest Realtek Audio Codecs for Windows 10

I got a M5A99x Evo Re2.0, brand new board and the audio from the rear doesnt work at all when I plug the pink and green plugs. I have an HDMI connecting from my TV to my Gcard, I get audio through the TV but cant seem to get those jacks working. Ive used two different headsets to see if it might have been the headset itself. im really stumped.
 

A:New board, no sound from front or rear jacks

Have you gone into the sound menu in your control panel and set your default audio device to your headset?

If, under the "playback" tab, the HDMI output is ticked, then this is the problem.

Just click on the correct device(It should either list your headphones or say "high definition audio", or something similar) and then click "set default".

This should solve the problem.

Hey all,

I have a really annoying issue with Vista Ultimate SP1.

My PC specs are as follows:

Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40 Ghz
Nvidia 680i SLI PCI-E
2x Geforce 6800 GS
HD Realtek Audio (onboard)
4.0 GB RAM

My issue is that I can't get any non-USB microphone to be picked up on any input, front or rear panel. I have installed the newest Realtek Audio HD drivers (2.00) and just recently did a fresh install of Vista with SP1 thinking that that would solve the issue. My system is fully up to date according to Windows Update.

However, though the sound manager realizes when I plug in a microphone, there is absolutely no level of input no matter how much I yell into it. I have two separate microphones (both working on other computers i.e my laptop's Vista install) which are not picked up at all.

I have cross checked and triple checked that the sound settings are all unmuted and corresponding within Realtek's sound manager as well as Vista's. This solves nothing. There is still no recognition of a working mic.

I am totally stumped as the microphone used to work on Vista when I had the automatic HD Audio Driver installed from Microsoft and then suddenly stopped. However, I have since tried to revert to the old driver but to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Microphone not working in front or rear panel

Hi, ezisk, and welcome to the forums.

First off, I moved your post as you posted in the general informational post about the RealTek drivers, which is not really a help thread.

On that motherboard, have you verified if you have all the connection correct for using the HD audio with the front / rear panel? I know the rear is automatic, but with the front panel, IIRC there is a specialized place for connecting the mic and speaker out jacks for HD versus non HD....

I have an expensive motherboard (ASUS P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe) with 5.1 sound (Realtek AC'97) IO on the back panel and an internal 10 pin (with 2 pins missing) AC'97 header to which I should be able to attach the AC'97 lead from my case's front panel headphone + mic sockets.

However, when I plug in the internal header, I lose the front left and right speakers from my 5.1 back panel socket (without getting it out the front socket either). I assume this is something to do with the way vista has only one "speakers" thing in control panel's "sound" thing and how it detects if things are unplugged. The only way I have been able to get the back panel sound back has been to unplug the front panel from the internal IO header.

Does anyone know how to fix this so that I can use both the front panel (headphones) and back panel (speakers) without turning my computer off to attach a lead to the motherboard?

Hey guys,

I installed the Hyper 212+ this weekend, but after installation, the audio stopped working. Thinking that this was a hardware issue, I went back and replugged some of the cables back into the mobo to make sure they were securely in there. No luck.

My setup (other specs in profile):
- Phenom x4 955
- Radeon 5850
- ASRock 870 Extreme3

Sound appears to work (green bars move, Windows doesn't detect any problems), but there's no output. Here's what the Sound control panel looks like:


(Note that I do indeed have speakers/headphones plugged in.)

I also went into the Realtek HD Audio Manager to see what's going on and it lists only Digital Output. None of the analog jacks appear to be active in the Manager window, unless I disable front panel jack audio detection. Here's what it looks like with front panel detection enabled:



And with front detection disabled:




I've done a couple of things so far:
- Tried headphones and speakers in front and rear audio jacks.
- Even tried microphone in front mic-in jack - didn't work. A USB (connected to front panel) mic did work, however.
- Restored BIOS to factory defaults.
- Disabled/re-enabled onboard audio in BIOS.
- Installed/uninstalled/reinstalled audio and video drivers.

I've also messed around with the Realtek HD Audio Manager itself:
- I disabled front panel jack audio detection. This added two additional in/ouputs: Speakers and FrontMic. Neither work.
- Changed default device to speake... Read more

A:No Audio Output via Front and Rear Jacks

flaergr, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Might help if you set the Speakers as the default device instead of the digital one. Unless you're specifically using the optical/digital connections on the back, both the regular and front panel jacks are analogue.

I would like to seperate the front and rear audio panels on my audio card ( Dont ask model all I kn ow is it is Realtek), how would I do this? Is there a program I could download that will do this?
 

A:Separating Front and Rear audio panels

Is what you are asking how do you determine which plugs to use for a 5.1 channel speaker system? or how to set it so you can use it? if the latter you should look in Control Panel for something like Realtek HD Audio Manager or Realtek Audio Manager.
