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.)

This is an older motherboard. The RealTek is Realtek? ALC662
Have you tried the driver from RealTek? The "AC'97" Codecs are the ones to use.

Hey, I recent put together this new rig. I'm using the onboard sound card for my Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Rev 2.0 mobo. The sound chipset is Realtek ALC889. I've updated the latest drivers, but there is crackling/static noise when I play music.

Currently I mainly use a 2.1 speaker system. But Ive tried testing it with headphones the static/crackling noises persists. It is not constant, but it shows up periodically. Furthermore, when there is no music/sound playing the noise is not there. This leads me to believe its a hardware/driver issue and not so much a speaker/interference issue.

I'm stumped on this and any help would be appreciated, the noise is annoying.

A:Realtek onboard sound card: Static/Crackling noises

Do you have a wireless (wi fi) connection? They have been known to cause this. A cordless phone or cell phone sitting close by is also a potential. Video card/drivers have also been another issue.

There are many possibilites and many forum posts about this problem, here, on the Dell users forum and other internet computer forums. No "one fix" for the problem.

I recently installed a new motherboard Asus Sabertooth 990FX. It has an on-board sound card "Realtek? ALC 892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC". I'm using 5.1 surround speakers from creative. Speaker fill with windows update driver, or Realteks driver from Asus' website, has the same outcome.

The problem is that the back speakers, when playing music, sound like an mp3 playing at 24kbps or something of the sort. This is not the first time this has happened, and ever since windows vista, this problem has occurred in every on-board sound card i have dealt with. I have heard different reasons such as DirectSound3D Hal in Windows Vista being removed, on-board sound cards just sucking, drivers sucking, etc.

The only time the rear speakers sound right, is when i test the speakers with windows, with the software from Realtek, Or using some media player that i cant remember the name of anymore that had an option to fix this problem only for music played in that media player. But I just want all sound to play through them right. I don't watch movies on this computer and usually don't play any games, so i don't really care about the surround affect. I just want all the speakers putting out sound in stereo.

At this point I really don't care if i need a third party software to fix this issue and just for the record, no I do not have room in my system for an internal sound card, and I really don't want to deal with an external one either. I'd rather just never fix the i... Read more

A:Realtek onboard sound card with 5.1 surround speaker fill problem

The first step once confirmed that the correct drivers and by the way sound app is installed is to set to the speaker settings for 5.1 or 4 speakers depending on preference. You may want to check on the Windows sound mixer settings as well since many often forget about that other mixer being there.

The first test once the settings are looked over is going into the Control Panel>Sound section there to run the test/configuration wizard which will verify each pair of speakers first front then back as you go along. That is found in the Playback tab when first clicking on the CP>Sound and seeing the popup window appear.
(refer to attached images for both Windwos sound mixer, Sound configuration wizard)

As you will see from the second image there for the configuration wizard I use a separate expansion card(preferred here) while you would still look through that wizard. With the Creative Audio Console/Volume Panel you generally expect a move evolved mixer.volume control panel while most onboard sound setups also provide some smaller form of mixer app you would need to look at as well.

Another trip up found with some 5.1 speaker sets is on the center speaker or other volume and balance controls where sometimes tweaking them is required when it seems sound will drop off from the rear speakers. If the bass is up a bit the quality of sound from the rear pair despite having a woofer below can suffer! Then you have to tweak the tremble if these controls are present to clean up th... Read more

Hello everyone,

My audio has seem to quit on me. I updated to the newest drivers for my mobo (biostar A870U3) from their download page and now I get no sound whatsoever from my speakers. I have tried uninstalling all of the sound devices from the device manager and letting windows reinstall them, but to no avail. I have also made sure that the onboard sound is on in the bios. When I uninstall the sound devices, it defaults back to the windows default audio driver which won't recognize something is plugged in.
It greys out my speakers and then defaults to the Digital Ouput, but I have no such device. I then have also tried downloading the onboard audio drivers from the mobo download page and installing them. They install but it then defaults to the Realtek Digital Output (once again, I don't have such a device). If I go to the realtek HD audio manager and disable front panel detection, it doesn't even recognize any of my back panels being plugged in. Even if I try to plug in my headset mic, the manager doesnt pic it up.
If I play music at this point, the speaker shows the level volume changing but I dont hear anything. I've tried switching back and forth all configurations in the manager and changed the levels of things, still nothing. Can anyone help? Or am I gonna have to go pick up a sound card?

That picture also shows it trying to use the front jack, which I dont have hooked up because I want to use the back panel. So I'm assuming that may be part of the reason. And ... Read more

A:RealTek OnBoard Sound Issue - No Sound

The first thing I see is four HD Audio devices in the Device Manager that should be uninstalled (RIGHT click on the entry for the device and then LEFT click Uninstall) then restart the PC. Get rid of them to eliminate any possibile conflicts.

If there is a "default" setting for the sound outputs, set it to default and see if that helps.

I notice a web cam that is also showing up. They can tend to cause issues too so temporarily disconnect that from the PC while you are trying to get the system audio setup.

A:Realtek onboard sound. No sound

Have you reinstalled the ASUS supplied Realtek driver? In most cases the vendor (in this case motherboard vendor) driver works best. Non Vendor drivers can either not work or not work correctly.

Do you have the Audio Playback set correctly? The "Speakers" (in this case Realtek) should be set as the Default Audio Playback Device in the Sound Panel.

Also while you are in the Sound Panel, go to the Recording section and set the Stereo Mix as the default recording device.

Finally, make sure you have the front panel headphone/mic jack correctly connected to the motherboard front panel audio jack. The "HD Audio" connector from the front panel should be used (some also have an AC97 or only have an AC97 and that should only be used if there is no HD Audio).

Hello, first I would like to say that I have searched lots of threads about sound distortion, crackling or bad quality and haven't found any solution. Specs of my computer are:
MB: Asus P8Z68-V
CPU: Intel i5 2500k
PS: Corsair HX650W
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Since I bought my computer I started to hear little crackling during listening to music, watching movies, playing games or looking videos on YouTube. Even Facebook pop sound when you get a message is distorted. I have started to search what is the problem and googled any solution. Unfortunately nothing. After a year of torture because I am recording a lot, I have bought Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card and hoped it would be better, It is not. It is the same as it was. I have even turned off the motherboard sound card in BIOS. Nothing. Does any one know any soulution please? Thank you very much for any answer.

A:Sound crackling and distortion, Asus P8Z68-V, Realtek and SB X-Fi Ti

I have a Sonar X2 recording studio.

There is no "one fix" for the problems you have. Each one can be different. Drivers are one item, including video card drivers. Wi-Fi can cause this, close proximity to a cordless phone or cell phone, etc.

Download and run the free DPC Latency checker and see what that shows for your system. High DPC latency (different from audio latency) can be an issue.

If you are using a separate sound card, the integrated does need to be off in the BIOS or they can conflict.

Some types of motherboard monitor programs can cause problems. I have a gigabyte motherboard and it came with a program to monitor and control some BIOS (UEFI) items from Windows. That program caused very high DPC latency spikes in my new PC when I was debugging it for recording.

In the last week, all sound on my laptop has started to crackle slightly. I changed headphones, but realized that thats not the problem. If i increase volume, the crackling gets worse, and distortion really sets in. Strange....only started happening last week. I have tried reinstalling my sound card driver, but no change there. Have looked around all my audio settings but cant find any clues. music etc is still listenable, but there is just a faint crackle constantly annoying me. and distortion if i turn the volume up louder.

Does this mean my sound card is wearing out?? or is it a physical prob inside?

my sound card is : Conexant AC link audio

Ever since I got my second Video Card and went SLI I have had crippling sound problems. After playing for a while all sounds get replace with a high pitched squeal. This is only with games, not music (using WMP), DVDs (using WinDVD), and only with my sound card, not the (crappy) onboard sound (which has no problem). Some games may play for three minutes, others for close to fifty before this consistently happens. It seems to be simply subsistuting all sounds with this annoying noise. I quit the game it goes quiet, but music is now affected and DVDs have NO sound. Single GPU works fine (either card, either PCI-E slot), sound card in either PCI slot still causes the problem. I recently got a newer, better sound card but it does the exact same thing. I think it may be either a video card issue, or the motherboard. Is it something to due with the way the video card handles sound? Or the motherboard? HELP!! I really like the improved graphics (on a relative budget) that SLI brings, and don't like being hobbled like this.

I've got an Asus Crosshair V Formula motherboard that I couldn't get any sound on my Onkyo HT-R550 receiver via the onboard optical output (Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS) I was planning on getting a nicer sound card anyway, so I bought the Asus Xonar Essence ST.

Installed that sound card but alas, I still have the same problem.

Speaker and headphone outputs work, but no signal is recognized by the receiver via the S/PDIF. I know that the cable and receiver are fine, I still have my previous computer which is running Win XP and it has been sending audio via the same cable to the same receiver for years. It still works if I hook it up. It has an Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe motherboard and an HT Omega Striker 7.1 audio card. Both the onboard and sound card optical output work with the optical out to the receiver.

With my current computer the Win 7 "Sound" window displays signal on the audio meter when I play audio or when I use the "Test" function. But no signal is recognized by the receiver. I've tried every format and sample rate. I've uninstalled all drivers and reinstalled. I've used DH Driver Cleaner to sweep out all previous existing audio drivers. I've also had the onboard disabled since I originally installed the card. I've tried everything I can think of and manipulated all the settings in the Xonar Essence ST Audio Center software that are relevant. I think I've tried everything, but I'm hoping I'm wrong. I've submitted this to Asus technical, but it's been... Read more

A:S/PDIF Optical out - No sound from receiver (onboard and sound card)

although the xonar panel will control almost all functions for that, make sure that windows has it's default audio device set to the spdif card you want. If it's set to speakers HD AUDIO (hd audio being one of the cards you want) will only output through analog. Control Panel>hardware and sound>sound. Select the card that you want and make sure u select one of the options that also says spdif. Click set default, apply and it should work. Sorry if you have already tried this. But it's the first thing that comes to mind right now.

I recently upgraded my PC with a gigabyte GA-7VA-C
motherboard and an AMD Athlon XP 2200. The motherboard has
an on board sound card (Avance AC'97 from Realtek-ALC650).
Everything seems to run well apart from the sound (no
sound). In device manager there was a black exclamation
mark (in a yellow circle) at the sound device. The message
I receive when I click properties is a Code 10: This
device is either not present, not working properly or
does not have all the drivers installed. I tried
almost everything. Remove the device, unistall the
drivers, re-install them (either by using the CD that came
with the motherboard or by leting windows find the
appropriate drivers or by downloading drivers from the
net) but nothing seems to work. The device does not appear
to have any conflicts but I also tried to change the slot
of another device that was using the same IRQ. However,
windows assigned again the same IRQ so nothing changed.
I have also tried to remove some devices and although the IRQ assigned to the sound card changed, there was still no sound.

I finally downloaded the updated drivers from realtek's site. After I install them and reboot, the computer freezes. When I press ctrl-alt-del I can see that the program that is running is cmdninst.exe. Apparently there is something wrong there and windows cannot process this operation.

Hey Grimreaper!

Sounds like you have a killer setup for sound. (I won't say what I'm using ).

If it were me and the onboard sound system is working great, then I'd stay with the onboard system. If you change your mind in the future, you can always add the external back in.

The title says it all. I recently started playing Medal of Honor and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and on both games I get a frozen screen with looping audio which forces me to shut the computer down via the power button.

after doing some searching around on the net and trying various solutions, I have determined the next step is to disable on board sound. I know this sounds like a noobish question but, is there any way to get sound out of my computer? is there a BIOS setting that allows me to disable the on board sound but still get sound out my PC? these 2 games rely heavily on being able to hear what is going on,

I have an ABIT IP35 Pro with no secondary sound card.


A:Can I get audio if I turn onboard sound off without a sound card?

No that'd be impossible. if you turn off the onboard sound, how are you gonna get some sound delivered to your speaker or headphone?

you should try disabling the onboard sound and check if it fixes the issue. if it did, also try to uninstall your current audio driver and install the newest one.

looping audio does not always means the onboard sound is faulty. it usually goes on loop because that portion of the soundtrack is already loaded into RAM. therefore it still plays even when the computer froze.

the problem might lies in other thing such as video card or overheating CPU since you indicate it only occurs when you're playing games.

First, let me say that I am a sound novice! I recently started a vinyl ripping project. My onboard sound does not support 24 bit depth recording at 96 kHz sampling rate, so I purchased an external USB card with phono preamp. It works just fine for my project. But as long as external sound card is plugged into a USB port, it takes control of all sound. I'd like to be able to toggle back to my onboard audio when I'm not ripping vinyl so I can listen through my system speakers. I have experimented with Windows audio controls, but have not found a way to do this. Is it possible?

It would depend on what you want from the audio or what applications you have for it. I have a home built using an Intel motherboard that has IDT (SigmaTel) HD audio on it. It's fine for most of the "listening" that I do However, I have a music program that uses MIDI and the default built in Windows/Microsoft GS Wavetable MIDI Synth is pretty bad. For that reason I have a SoundBlaster Xfi installed and SoundBlaster has on board hardware MIDI synths that are much better.

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

Combofix backs up files before deleting them. See in system restore points,any restore point created by CF?
if not,re-install the Windows.

Can anyone tell me how I would do this? I've tried for days to locate my driver with no success.


A:Reinstalling a sound driver for onboard sound from a pre-packaged Windows XP

normally you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the orignal OEM drivers for your computers model and series.
usually under Customer service and support or downloads on the companies' website.

If not an OEM install from a major manufacturer such as Dell or Compaq etc, then you should still be able to find out the manufacturer of the motherboard itself and go to their website and do the same

Hi everyone,

A few days ago I replaced my cpu, motherboard and hdds on my system.

OLD System (main components)
Case: Antec 902 v3
Cpu: i7 950
Mobo: Asus p6x58d-e
RAM: corsair vengence 4gb x 3
GPU: Zotac GTX 660
Boot drive: Intel 40gb ssd (Win 7)
HDD: WD 1TB (black)

New System (main components)
Case: Antec 902 v3
Cpu: i7 4790k
Mobo: Gigabyte z97x - ud3h-bk
RAM: corsair vengence 4gb x 3
GPU: Zotac GTX 660
Boot drive: Samsumg evo 500gb ssd (Win 7)
HDD: WD 3TB (black)

I was able to clone the ssd and hdd (samsung migration for ssd and Easeus todo backup for hdd). Initally I had some driver conflict when I booted up the computer on the new mobo.
I managed to uninstall all the old drivers and then used the driver cd to install the mobo drivers and even updated all of them to the latest version. I

The conflict I'm still having is with the back panel audio for the onboard sound. I get very low volume and and crackling at certain frequencies (tried on both my generic creative speaker and Audio technical headphones). When I'm plugging in the speaker into the green port and have it plugged in half way or accidentally touch the jack to the I/o plate I get really strong/loud static noise.

Here is the list of solution that I tried with no success:

Updated the Realtek HD Audio Manager app (I.e the one installed from the driver cd) to the latest one
Used DPC latency checker and it is showing all greens (didn't test it for more than a minute though..should I be doing som... Read more

A recent Windows updated is causing the following error message on machines supplied with Realtek sound cards:

Rthdcpl.exe - Illegal System DLL Relocation


The system DLL user32,dll was relocated in memory The Application will not run properly.The relocation occurred because DLL C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\HHCTRL.OCX occupied an address range reserved for windows system DLLs The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DDL.

Microsoft have released a fix for this problem, which can be downloaded from the following location:


I suspect that a later Windows Update contains a fix for this, so ignoring the thing may well pay off!

there something wrong with my computer

when i play an audio or when something coming out of the speaker (or head phone) it comes out all broken

its hard to describe it but like the audio rips king of . continuously

does anyone know whats wrong ?

it seems to be more subtle when there is less things going on on the computer
and when im using my comp to the max then i can barely even listen to the song because it rips so much

so i dont think its the sound card .. is it the hard drive then?

A:is it the onboard sound card?

hey, i have a video capture card that uses an audio link to input the sound into my sound card, and my sound cards clock stabillity is apparently not all that great, which causes the sound to either lag behind the video or be slightly ahead of the video. and i was wondering, would it be possible to have the line in from my capture card go into my onboard sound(which was working fine before the new card) so that i could get the synch that im looking for. step by step instructions would be great. I have a sound blaster live 24 bit and an ASUS mobo with onboard stereo sound(kt600)

anywho, thanks alot in advanced

sup fellas, have a stupid question for you...
Just switched my desktop to windows 7 from xp pro and have a weird latency with my audio. This latency did not exist on XP, but with 7 it is there. I have been using just my motherboard soundcard (desktop for recording) with the 6 1/8" inputs ... I have my dj mixer's output to the mic input on the soundcard and the speaker output to the sound system. I have downloaded all the updated realtek audio drivers, but still have this 1/4 second latency. I have also tried running my mixer's output to the line-in opposed to the mic and get no audio recognition. Any ideas?

A:onboard sound card question

The line in is an unpowered line. If you have a self powered sound source, you should be able to use this port to feed sound into your computer. My best guess is to may certain that you have the correct drivers, make sure there are no device conflicts and to check to see if it is a program issue.

I'm trying to help my brother set up a new computer basically from scratch. I've gotten nearly everything working on it, except for the sound card. It's an onboard sound card, but I haven't been able to locate any sort of manufacterer or part #s on it, and I don't see anything on the motherboard itself (I don't even know the make/model of the mb). Is there any way I can find out this information? Do I even need to know this to find a driver for the sound card? Thanks in advance for your help,

I left my computer on that night and when i came back to my computer the next day the sound was not working. Nothing was changed. It was exatly how i left it. I restarted my computer and to no avail. I have a k7s5a Motherboard with a 1.15 amd chip, 512 ram. I dont understand what happened here. I tried updating the sound drivers but to no avail. Could my sound card be broken? it is a onboard sound card. I know i am using the right drivers. What should I do? BTW if i turn my speakers to MAX volume, i can hear some scratching in the background.

EDIT: if it is hardware failiure should i get a pci sound card or what...

A:onboard Sound card problems


Take a look here and make sure it's not muted:-
Start>Programs>Accesories>Entertainment>Volume Control.

Check-out device manager under Audio Devices and see what shows and make sure the card is 'enabled' not 'disabled'.

You could also check your BIOS just to ensure it hasn't got disabled there.

Have you tried another amplifier/speaker set?

There are some very good PCI sound cards in the 'Creative' range if all else fails.

I recently got a new MB MSI K9VGM-V and when i first tried to get going everything seemed to work fine except the sound card. I have a PCI sound card, but with only 2 PCI slots I'd like to use my onboard sound (if possible) I tried downloading and installing a driver for it (Windows XP Home didn't find it for some reason) Now I get a RTHDCPL.EXE illegal Sysytem DLL Relocation error and says

I'm recently working on my brother-in-law's computer that was given to him. I installed windows2000 professional...i.e. reformatting and removing all old software. Everything so far seems to run great...if you don't plan on having any sound. It appears the sound card is a SoundPro HT1869V+ on board and is not compatable with win2000 nor has drivers to install for win2000. My first question is this....can I disable the onboard sound card and install a new sound card i.e. Creative soundblaster and if so my 2nd question is how do I disable the onboard sound card? Would this be done in bios? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

A:Disabling Onboard Sound Card

try going to start/settings/control panel/add remove hardware, go throught the uninstall prompts. If you can see the sound chip there you should be able to uninstall or disable it.

Otherwise you can look in the bios for a setting to disable it, some motherboards have jumpers, you would need to check the manual for the machine. And some disable themselves when you install another sound card.

Okes, I'm having this problem with my on-board sound card. Ever since a pin on my PS-2 Mouse broke I've been having to use a USB mouse, But the problem is the USB ports on my motherboard don't work for some reason. This made me have to remove my Soundblaster PCI card so put in a USB card so I could have a working mouse. Now I have reinstalled Windows XP, my old one was a pirated program which I didn't know until about a year after I bought it off of a friend. Now, the sound card on my board says its an AC-97 ((I think I keep forgetting)), or at least that's what the bios says. I plug in my speakers into the motherboard and it says I have no audio device. but when I checked the drivers it says all of them are working. I've tried updating the drivers, uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, I checked the bios settings and made sure the sound was enabled, it was. So now I'm at a loss of what to do. Any help would be great to fix this problem. I would love to listen to some music >.<, as well as play some games.

Oh here are the specs that I know for my computer, which is an old E-Machines

Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.00GHz
1.99 GHz, 0.99 BG of RAM

Microsoft Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP3

I don't know the make of the motherboard. As I said I bought it off of a friend.

I've also included a image of the drivers and where is says that there is no audio device.

I have an on-board sound card that is built on motherboard and Im getting interference noise (i think) that comes thru the speakers at about the half way point and beyond. So if I want a decent sound it sounds like crap. Will a soundblaster card or other eliminate this or no?

A:Onboard sound card vs soundblaster etc???

Yes it should eliminate this noise. I had this problem when I was putting my computer together and hadn't bought a good soundcard yet. It got annoying quick, but was easily fixed with a new card. I think you will also enjoy the new sound and clarity with a GOOD sound card.
