No sound coming (realtek sound driver)

Q: No sound coming (realtek sound driver)

Hii pls help. Im having difficulties with the sound on my pc.

Speaker type: microlab x4
Sound card: creative 5.1
OS: Win7

Creative 5.1 driver installed + realtek HD audio driver R263 installed.
When creative 5.1 driver is chosen as the default device, sound is coming but not from woofer and front speakers.
However when i play blu-ray movies (both on media player and vlc) sound is coming from all the speakers as opposed to sound coming only from the rear speakers when i play song from media player and youtube.

When realtek is chosen as the default device no sound is coming.

Hope you guys can help me out. thanks a lot.

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: No sound coming (realtek sound driver)

Creative and Realtek are two different audio chipsets. Most likely, you have a Realtek audio chipset on the motherboard and a Creative Sound Card installed.

The rear speakers working and the front not working, likely indicates a cable connectivity issue (ie: the output cable(s) of the sound card to the speakers) or possibly a speaker configuration issue in the audio setup.

Simply switching the default audio chipset won't help. YOu would also need to change where the cables are connected.

Realtek HD driver issues with windows?
Hey guys and gals,

well i got a lovely new laptop a month or so ago and just recently its been playing up:
speakers sometimes work and when they do they distort heavily and then cut out all together .. and they rarely work again
i look in sound devices and it says there no device present
i look at device manager and at the sound and video drivers selection and the audio drivers are set as legacy .. and are working properly but they dont know where the device actually is....

the next insult to injury is if i try to uninstall the currently installed realtek drivers ... i get an uninstallation failure and so theyre not totally uninstalled

if i try and install the drivers through windows i.e. update drivers (in control panel etc) i get the ever amazing BSOD which reports that RtkHDAud.sys has caused my laptop to crash


its getting a tad annoying as im back off to uni tomorrow and have no sound ... the only thing that i will be able to listen to music thru is my MP3 player which is far from practical when im sitting in my room



the laptop is:
acer 5103WLMi
AMD 64 x2 turion
1gb RAM
Ati X1300
120HDD

and im running on media center


thanks for your time and i hope you guys can help me

After installing a new sound driver from Dell yesterday, I can't play any sort of sounds in media players. System sounds are still working fine, as well as youtube etc. However, windows media player, VLC, quicktime and spotify cannot play sound files.

WMP:

Web help button sends me here: Windows Media Player error C00D11B1 (None of it fixed the issue.)

Spotify says something about a missing audio driver.

Anyway, so I tried rebooting, rolling back the driver, installing an HD audio driver from realtek themselves. None of these things work.

When a system sound plays, the bar next to "speakers" goes up, but when playing music nothing shows.

I've also tried fiddling with the device settings in media player, to no avail.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there.

I've looked almost everywhere and I couldn't find my exact problem. Well, technically I did but there wasn't a solution anywhere, so I decided to go ahead and ask myself.

Now, I installed Windows 7 (32 bit) on my computer the other day, and I've been driver hunting since then. Looking for video card drivers, printer drivers, it's a real nightmare. Though I can say I've pretty much managed with everything, except with this.

I downloaded the latest Realtek HD audio driver for Windows 7 twice, from different sources. I also downloaded a bunch of codecs (made for Windows 7 as well) but what really bothers me is that the sound quality is horrifying.

I used to have XP on my system until last week with the appropriate Realtek audio driver and the sound was awesome. The equalizers available really did the trick.

Now, however, the sound is so freaking bad, even Winamp's equalizer can't make my music sound as good as it did. The treble is raspy, there's hardly any bass. I've tried all the available settings in the Realtek Control Center (or whatever it's called) to no avail. All the additional equalizing and adjusting of the environment make it sound even worse. =/

If anyone can help me out, I would appreciate it so much.

Hi all, this is my first post so I feel a bit of a fraud getting help from here, but it's driving me insane.

For a while now I've had the problem of no sound from my headphones. This is the situation and what I've tried:

- Sound comes from the headphones when using the standard Windows 7 driver that installs itself. However this is too quiet for me and not what I want.
- I update to the latest Realtek driver (2.71) from their website and sound stops coming from the headphones.
- Sound comes from the laptop speakers.
- I have done a clean install of Windows 7 but it didn't solve anything.
- Windows detects the headphones are plugged in (I get the alert that I've plugged something in the audio jack).
- The headphones work fine on other computers.
- The Realtek GUI also shows I have the headphones plugged in.
- I have always had the automatic detection unchecked on the Realtek manager.
- I have tried editing the registry as the pinned thread suggests but it has no effect.

My specs: Dell Inspiron N5030

Processor: Intel Pentium T4500 / 2.3 GHz ( Dual-Core )
Memory: 3GB
Hard Drive: 320.0 GB - Serial ATA-300 - 5400.0 rpm
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition
Graphics Processor: Intel GMA 4500MHD Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0
Audio: High Definition Audio Device

Thanks for any help. This problem is seriously bugging me and is so frustrating.

A:No headphone sound, Realtek driver problem.

Since you have a Dell, the first thing to do is install the RealTek driver from Dell. Non-Dell drivers, even ones directly from RealTek, may not work or work correctly. I did support on the Dell forums for 10 years and using the Dell sound driver fixed a lot of problems.

Hi everyone,


I have a trouble with my friend PC. I installed him Windows 7, but I can't put Realtek High Definition driver. Tried all kind of drivers from the official site, but no result. On the Device manager there are jus High Definision driver, but not Realtek. In Program files there is a Realtek installed program, but nothing works. There is no Realtek Sound Manager too.
Please, give me advice how to resolve the problem.

A:Realtek sound driver doesn't install

We can only talk in generalties without knowing what the PC is and hardware.

The HD Audio Codec is the generic Windows installed basic functi9on sound driver. The sound should work (be able to hear) with this.

Where did the RealTek come from in the Programs Files? Is this an upgrade from Vista? (if it was XP you would need to do a complete new install). If this was from Vista the PC vendor's Vista sound drivers will work.

If the RealTek is from what you attempted to install, the PC vendor's drivers are the preferred. Non vendor drivers (even drivers from the RealTek site) may not work or work correctly.

But, more info is needed to even make an "educated' guess and try to help you.

It may be the mic - some have a switch on them to adjust the impedence and therefore the response.

I have just recently encountered a problem where my speakers are playing/making crackling/popping sounds. However, I know this is because of my computer because I hooked my speakers up to my phone and it worked perfectly fine. I'm also aware that if I play a sound over bluetooth the sound doesn't happen. I've run the trouble shooting program 10 times, and after it caused my system sounds to termporarly stop working (fixed by restarting computer) I stopped running it. I believe this is being caused by the Realtek High Definition Audio driver, however im not positive. I've tried going to Device Manager and updating it but it doesnt solve the problem, in fact while trying all this it actually got worse. Before 5 days ago I had never had this problem, and my computer came with Windows 10 installed. I have also noticed that it mostly occurs with my left speaker and hardly at all with my right. I have a HP ENVY Phoenix Desktop, and i've had it for around a year. Any reccomendations on what to do?

Did you try a "rollback" to the previous version (that apparently worked)? Go to the Device Manager, display the sound and in the Driver section you can "rollback" the driver to the previously installed version. Or if that does not work, use the System Restore and restore the PC back to a date when the old driver was installed and it worked.

Yesterday i installed a game however, when i went to play i got a message saying my 'Sound-Driver was occupied by another application and i needed to close that application in order to play the game'. Trying to figure out this problem i visit multiple websites and many people tell me to delete the sound drivers from my PC and re-install them. The only problem was i had no CD that came with my laptop so i had to find the drivers online. I went to Acer.com and put in my model number and found the right laptop. I went to the Audio tab and 3 driver options came up. Not knowing which was the right one i downloaded/installed them all.
Before we go any further ill give the spec's of my PC and what driver i deleted.

Manufacturer: Acer

System type: 64 bit operating system

To delete my drivers i went to Start>Right click on my computer> Properties>Device Manager>Sound, Video, Game Controllers tab, and then right clicked the driver and clicked remove.

The two Drivers that came up under the 'Sound, Video, Game Controllers' tab were:
- Intel (R) Display Audio
- Realtek High definition Audio (I deleted this one because this is my sound)

I looked in Device manager under the 'Sound' tab and my sound drivers are working fine. I have sound and haven't even had a sound problem since i got this PC.

is that causing it?

A:a delay in sound coming in and invalid asio driver

Yes. You need a well coded ASIO driver for low latency. If your hardware (sound device you're using) does not support or have such a driver, you'll need to upgrade to something better.

If you have a setting for samples per buffer, you can set a lower value.

There is an audio controller or it's called Sound Manager where you can enhance the music and change settings, etc...that does not open and i've been a few times or several i should say, i've been downloading the drivers over and over and uninstalled in following the directions to get the sound manager triggered to open but to no avail. And now i think I've got too many duplicates and that's a conflict. The sound works but it's just that you can enhance or tune the settings without that other part (the audio sound manager).

Does anyone-or are you willing to have a look at this and i can further clarify i think in a way to understand what it is as far as this one (like i say) it's in many forums of the identical complaint by lot of people in this one issue and it's a matter of triggering the driver that pertains to this simple dash board sound manager to open. Thanks a lot if you may have any ideas or recommends that i might attempt!

A:I'm unable to install Realtek sound driver on Lenovo laptop

Are you running XP SP2 or SP3?
> If you're still SP2 you may be missing a Windows driver you needed for High Definition (HD) audio that comes in SP3. It's required by the Realtek HD driver will work

If SP3, see if Windows can find and install the right driver for you. Open Device Manager. Do you see your sound card? (Probably listed with a yellow icon) right click it, select Update Driver and let Windows search for the right driver

Hi guys....just found this site last night, first post for me, dont know a WHOLE lot about computer stuff, but know some basics....

    I went to plug my computer speakers back in to the headphone jack & the sound came out, for lack of a better word, "tin-y" sounding & had no bass....Sounds all funky....I cleand the headphone jack & that didnt do anything....I plugged those same speakers into another audio source & they sounded fine...
    Does anyone have experience with this type of thing? did I maybe delete a driver or something? very irritating, I use those speakers all the time....

Hi guys...
I just plugged my Onkyo 6.1 Channel (S-680) to my computer. I connected the receiver to the Digital Out port of my motherboard (Intel 915GV Chipset-Asus PTGD1 - LA). It uses the Realtek ALC880 drivers. Whenever I open Sound Effect Manager and do the Speaker Test, sound comes only from my front speakers. The rears/centre/sub all light up but no sound is played. However, while running games/music/films I get sound from all my speakers (though not very satisfactory and not real surround sound). Can anyone please help me with this?

Also, I can't open Realtek HD Audio Manager (RTHDCPL.exe). Only RTLCPL.exe (Sound Effect Manager) works. When I click on RTHDCPL.exe nothing happens. Please do help out.

Thanks.
 

A:No Sound From Surround/Centre/Subwoofer In Realtek Sound Effect Manager Test

try this:

1) try to go to the settings of your sound effect manager & there are selections there for 2.0,2.1.5.1 or what ever you may find that corresponds to your speaker channel.

2) if nothing corresponds to the given selections,try to download the latest audio driver from your motherboard's manufacturer website.

3) otherwise,you need to plug-in a sound card that has the feature to play with 6.1 channel audio.

goodluck

I'm trying to configure 5.1 Surround Sound but Realtek doesn't seem to be installing and it's driving me nuts.

I have installed the driver provided by Gigabyte for my motherboard and it's not doing anything. It installs, asks me to restart the PC but nothing is there. OS is Windows 7 64-bit.

Gigabyte says that my motherboard supports both 5.1 and 7.1 Surround Sound so I don't understand why I can't configure my speakers to run 5.1 (it only lets me use Stereo).

Device manager only shows High Definition Audio Device and Control Panel doesn't show Realtek at all. Realtek Audio Manager doesn't appear either, it's not in the system tray icons where I would usually find it. Even searching for Realtek brings up nothing other than all the drivers I have downloaded to see if they would work.

Link to motherboard's Realtek driver as provided by Gigabyte: http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4305#dl

First off, I will not claim to be technologically gifted, so please be patient;

I've had a reoccurring issue with my Asus Laptop. Whenever I play music it starts to make this strange guttural sound, accompanied by bouts of freezing and frustratingly slow speeds and responses from my computer. It sounds incredibly similar to this youtube video I found researching my issue. ASUS G73 laptop stops and makes weird noise for a second (couple of times.) - YouTube

I've used my included recovery disk, and that fixed the problem for a couple months. But the problem returned, and at a loss for what to do, I decided to try to uninstall my sound driver, with the intention of reinstalling it. I restarted and was presented with a new driver "High Definition Audio Device." I don't want to irreversibly destroy anything by continuing this blind voyage. What do I do next?

It's the most suspicious sound I've ever heard. It sounds exactly like fat, felt tip marker making a quick check on paper. It can also be compared to a rat sniff or a piece of paper being turned. I wear headphones and can hear this noise occasionally for up to 15 minutes. It likes to happen at night, when 'they' are active ( humor me ). Because of the sneaky, low volume, discreet, low down, creepy, stalky, shifty sound I am disposed to imagine that someone is looking through my files for credit information and they are unaware of these sounds from my sound card, or they don't care about the sound because they are safe from being caught.

Sound like I'm crazy? Just paranoid. I did say it makes me imagine. The kind of person I am is the same kind that will run system restore at a moment's notice for anything that looks suspicious or a NoScript violation. Because that sound is clearly designed to resemble a sniffing rat doing something sneaky on my computer. I tried to record the output with Audacity 1.3, but it had stopped before I had recorded anything.

My setup:

Windows XP Pro 64 bit Service Pack 2
Verizon High Speed Internet
Marvell Yukon 88E8056 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
LinkSys Router routing to a Windows 7 laptop, WPK-PSK, TKIP
Soundblaster Live!

Mozilla FireFox
 

A:Solved: Suspicious sound coming from sound card output.

It was that Windows XP search dog. When you ctrl + f to open the search side bar in a window there is an animated dog that seems innocuous. Every 15 minutes or so it will scratch itself and make that noise twice. As long as that search side bar is open, minimized or not, that noise will persist.

I have no applications running at all in Windows. I have the system sound muted, but I still have some sound coming out of the speakers. It sounds like some talk radio. I also have all networking disabled. I have no idea where this is coming from.

How can I tell if any process on my computer is accessing the sound drivers?
 

A:Solved: computer sound muted but sound is still coming from speakers

In some cases, if the speakers are cheaply made and not sheilded, they can acutally pickup radio waves (especially if you live near a radio tower). Does the "Talk radio" continue if the speakers are on, while the computer is off?

The realtek audio managers shows that the front two inputs, front mic and headphones, are always plugged in when there is nothing in them at all. When I plug in my speakers to the back green input for sound it inputs both the green one, front speakers out, and the blue input, line in.

Now I get no sound when I set it to HD audio but I get a little sound when its set to ac97. Also there is a constant static ringing sound going on. When the computer is first turned on the speakers do a very large pop, then start winding up getting loader and loader and pops again. Then it just sits with static. This happened when I turned my computer back on.

I tested the speakers and they work just find on other devices so its not the speakers.

How the heck does this happen and how does one fix this?

Thank you guys.

A:No sound, Realtek sound inputs assigned randomly

I suggest that you install a new version of the Realtek sound driver:

Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version

If that does not resolve it, something might be wrong with your sound adapter.
