Realtek HD Audio Manager Completely Missing After Clean Install

Q: Realtek HD Audio Manager Completely Missing After Clean Install

Hi There!
I'm new to both this forum and other help sites, not to mention I have all the computer literacy of a brick, well maybe not that bad, as I can install and update programs, but going in and really tinkering around, I don't dare do without some seriously detailed instructions. Please, be very patient with me and explain things in very basic English so I can follow you. I realize this is more of a Windows 7 site and not a basic Vista site, but when I Googled my problem, your site came up with a thread that about covered my problem, except for a few little details that may or may not change your replies to it. The thread I speak of was by a member named NTexan from 2010.
However, I'll explain my own experiences and hopefully you guys can give me the correct link(s) to fix the whole thing. A while back I was having some serious glitches with my computer and called MSN Support and they decided I needed to do a clean install, which I did, as they talked me through it.
Well a while later I not only noticed my entire Realtek Audio Manager was missing (That means files, icon, manager, etc, nothing is there any where on the computer. It is completely gone.) and that I could no longer use my head phones, or even my microphone (both jacks are in the front) and if that wasn't irritating enough, I also can't use my "Audio Recorder" that comes with my computer, or the fancier one I had downloaded and used all the time before. I can hear audio through my speakers quite fine when I play audio or video files, but the audio recording programs don't hear it, and so can't record them.
Unfortunately I can't give you all the info that was requested when I registered, as I don't even know where to look at this point, but I put the basic info that I do know, which is Vista 32 bit, Home Premium, running on an emachines T5274 PC. Oh and I'm on dial up if that actually means anything.
I just want to get my Realtek HD Audio Manager back so I can get the rest of the other problems sorted out, which I'm hoping this will do. I tried going to the Realtek site itself, but all I get is a confusing collection of driver downloads. I assume that downloading the drivers won't get me the actual program, and I've gone all over the web trying to find even one place where I can download it from with of course no success. I tried e-mailing the Realtek techs several times over several months (yes, this has been going on for that long.) and they never once responded, and I used not only their main tech address, but a couple of the other ones, just to try to get someone to respond with some info.
Anyway, I would like to avoid all the trouble others have had trying to find and download the correct files, as quite frankly, if I mess this up, I doubt I can fix it by myself, so it's up to you guys!
Sorry for the long post, but better too much info, than not enough. If you need even more, please give me the dummies explanation of exactly where to locate it because I'm flying blind here.
Oh, one last thing, a friend thought I'm missing audio files that weren't installed when I had to re-install stuff and should be on a disc that comes with the computer, but the only disc I can now find is the OS disc. She said there should be a second one, but for the life of me I have no idea where that may have gotten off to. I wish I knew someone with the same OS, computer, etc, that could make a copy of the second disc or at least the audio files for me, or post the files to a site I can download them from, but no one seems to use an emachines as it's a cheap piece of garbage but all I can afford presently. So that is it. Why is it impossible to find the Realtek Audio manager program itself to download, and only the drivers are available? Makes no sense at all.
Anyway, thank you to those taking the time to read all this and/or provide me with assistance!

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.)

Hi

I don't know if you will be able to help me but I will try and explain my problem. Please bear with me and I will try and put it as clearly as I can.

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi1505 laptop with Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed.

When I got the laptop there was an icon in the system tray near to the clock which when you clicked on it opened up a nice looking graphic from which you could alter the realtek sound settings and choose things such as concert speech room etc. It had graphics depicting speakers and other things.

I have now found an image of it on the web at : http://www.mydigitallife.info/wp-con...k-hd-audio.jpg

It is/was called the Realtek HD Audio Manager

That has now completely disappeared and I cannot seem to get it back or find it anywhere on my computer.

It made making adjustments to the sound settings so much easier and I miss not having it.

Is there anyway to restore it back so that I can alter my sound settings more easily

I do hope I am making sense with this??

Look forward to hearing from you

Hi well if it is still on the system you will see it in the control panel. If not check in add remove programs to see if it's there, if it is there maybe it got disabled from startup. Go to start where is says start search type in msconfig and push enter, next choose the startup tab do you see it listed there if so and there is no check mark beside it put a check mark and reboot it will then start.

I have a problem locating my Realtek Hd Audio Manager, I have read through many posts such as updating your drivers, uninstalling then re-installing, restarting your computer, make sure to check my BIOS, check in control panel, things like that.

And in conclusion I think I have 2 possible explanations, the first one is that the current driver (updated) doesn't support the realtek hd audio manager? (I read on someone else's post that he had to rollback/downgrade his drivers for his audio manager to appear.

My last solution is... that I don't even have the Realtek Hd Audio manager chip on my motherboard? Possible Nvidia Hd Audio? Because I have 4 Nvidia Hd Audios, and only 1 Realtek.

This is what i'm using,

You have a RealTek - those HD audio's are from your video card's HDMI/Digital inputs. I've had this happen to me as well. I basically had to remove the drivers and delete the hardware from the device manager. Reboot and let it find the new hardware then install the newest drivers.

A:Realtek audio manager missing

Have you checked at your motherboard maker's web site?

I have a Gigabyte motherboard that uses a Realtek ALC892 chip.

In Device Manager, it appears as "Realtek High Definition Audio".

In Control Panel, I have an applet for "Realtek HD Audio Manager". When the icon is poked, it opens up with a representation of a listening room, with controls for volume, speakers, sound effects, and room correction. I never use it.

Is that what you are looking for? I've never played with it, but I'm reasonably sure I got the driver directly from Gigabyte, where it was shown as "Realtek Azalia ALC892 audio driver". When the driver was installed, the Control Panel applet appeared.

You may require a different driver if you have a different chip or motherboard manufacturer.

So I just completed my HTPC build and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home on it.

Here are the specs:
CPU: AMD Regor 245
Mobo: Asus M4A785-m
Vid card: Gigabyte 4550
HDD: WD 100g (upgrading in the future)
PSU: OCZ 650 SiltentXstreaM
so on so on, i think i listed anything needed to help solve my problem.

And my problem is! I CANNOT get Realtek to install correctly and run during Windows 7, nor can i get more than 2 channel output from my 4550 HDMI.
- It does not show up in the Sound and Devices tab in the CP.
- It does not show up in the toolbar
- The driver for the audio on the 4550 is the latest Realtek one, i know that as the Device manager confirms.
- I have tried using many drivers from 2.39 through 2.42 (which was released yesterday)
- In the windows audio manager, i can only get two channels (stereo) from the HDMI on the 4550
- I have tried installing/uninstalling/re-installing drivers countless times through Win7 and with compatibility mode.
- I have spent hours upon hours searching the google machine and have not found a fix for myself.

I will continue updating my progress on this as it drags on.
Any help is HIGHLY appreciated!

Thanks,

If you are ever uncertain about a driver, or have a question mark for the driver, you may want to do the following.

Control panel. System. Device Manager. Right click on driver in question. Left click properties. Details. Provides vendor and device id (e.g., alphanumeric string like this PCI\VEN_1217&DEV_7130&SUBSYS_012F1025&REV_01\4&6B16D5B&0&33F0). Take this info and go to PCI Vendor and Device Lists

You can do a vendor search or a device search.

Hi.

I have a problem with 32 bit Vista.

I have no sound!

The machine is a Dell XPS 435 MT and comes shipped with 64bit windows which is not suitable for the software i run.

Sohave re-installed with 32 bit Vista. No driver/hardware issues in Device manager and everything would appear fine.

go into the sound properties and playback devices and lists only the one device which is HDMI which i believe is my graphics card.

We have a couple of these machines which are the exact same spec apart from the 64bit and 32bit OS and the other is still in 64 bit. comparing the two side by side.

the 64 bit one works fine.

The differences are:

1. 64 bit one has the realtek HD audio manager in control panel which the 32bit one does not.

2. the 64 bit lists two playback devices HDMI and realtek, the 32bit only lists HDMI

3. 64bit lists Realtek and HDMI in the device manager under sound the 32bit only lists the HDMI however there are no errors for any devices or drivers.

I have tried the latest intel installer as apparently it is intel integrated 7.1 chip. I have also tried installing the latest realtek hd codec and installing severally times as also suggested on this site.

I am really baffled by this one, and really hope i dont have to go out and buy several pci sound cards to fix the issues on these machines with the audio.

Dell said it is not possible to run 32bit on these machines which is rubbish, i have managed to overcome most problems with the install apart fr... Read more

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

My computer is a couple years old, but everything was working just fine, audio included. I was watching a video and talking on AIM and everything just randomly went mute. Device manager shows no issues, speaker volume is still at 100, green volume indicator shows activity. I thought it was an issue with the AIM program, but since a reboot fixed nothing, I'm not so sure.

Here's what I have tried so far:
Rebooting
Uninstalling and reinstalling:
- latest drivers from Realtek site
- drivers for my motherbord from Asus site
Unplugging and replugging every audio related plug on the computer (orange/green/black on the back, and all cables from the sub)
Setting either Speakers or Digital Output to default. Neither made a difference.

No luck.

So, here's my system specs:

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.

Hey, this morning i put in a new video card, xfx radeon hd4650 and installed the software and drivers from the ati website. It seems that the hdmi audio driver has screwed up my realtek audio. I had the problem when I went from xp to win7 and installed the newest driver v2.55 (6.0.1.6000) it did not work so i found the cd that came with the computer and installed the old one v1.89 (5.10.0.5125) it was fine.

I've tried to do that again by uninstalling the driver from the device manager but the problem is that the hd audio manager is never installed and not even seen in control panel. I've done the same in safe mode and no luck. When i try to manually add hardware and select the 5.10 version i get a blue screen of death, the 6.0 installs fine but there is no audio and no audio manager. i used to be able to get the audio manager at least when i did this a year ago.

I've system restored to a couple days back and still no luck, this is driving me insane for 4 hours now! Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

dxdiag shows no audio

(the droidcam is for my android phone, had that for a while, that's not the problem)

Thanks

Can someone tell me how you set it up to be able to play mp3's in paltalk chat rooms. I was using a usb headset , but thought maybe the usb wouldn't work that way , so i picked up a stereo headset with the standard mic and headphone jacks and i still couldn't get it to work in the paltalk chat rooms . any suggestions at all from anyone .... I miss my xp audio settings , they were simpler . this realtek audio manager is ticking me off..

I have spent a lot of time browsing around the threads here. I have found
a lot of very similar threads, but not what I am looking for. If there is one,
I would be happy if someone pointed me in the right direction.

I am using Vista Ultimate x64. I have a Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 Rev. 2.0 Motherboard.
It has integrated Realtek HD Audio Chipset ALC883.

I would like to know if I can get Realtek HD Audio Manager running on Vista x64 again.
I was using XP x64 in the past but ever since I have moved to vista it is not there. Now, yes I am aware that without installing the driver (because I am using the one built into windows) the Realtek Audio Manager is not going to be there, I am more wondering if there is anyone who has gotten this to successfully work. I have tried the driver from Gigabyte's Website with no success. However, I have not tried any directly from Realtek.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
More Information: (Not Necessary)
I would like to have my computer do a few things that it used to do in XP where it asks what I just plugged in to the slot instead of assuming I only have 1 speaker and 1 Microphone. I would also like the ability to record from what is sometimes called "Stereo Mix" or "Wave Mix". Basically record without a Mic. I have gone into the vista control panel and selected "Show Disabled" and "Show Disconnected" but with no avail. Again Thanks.

A:Realtek Audio Manager (Yes Again)

Hi, bretzero, and welcome to the forums.

Use the Realtek driver. It works well in Vista x64.

They just released 2.10 a couple of days ago.

I built my rig in April, and my eVGA mobo has the same one, I believe....I am in Windows 7 and haven't tried installing the drivers for it in here yet so I cannot be 100% sure....

couple of problems seem to be occuring with this programme. firstly the front mic port is highlighted pink even when no mic is connected. is this normal?

mic and headphones work fine but every now and then. in particular if i have speakers switched on it will pop up saying i have either connected or disconnected a device. can this be resolved?

finally, i'm guessing i should keep my drivers up to date. is there anyway i can check if it is the latest version and if not where do i go to get an update? motherboard website or realtek.

thanks in advance

A:realtek HD audio manager

Easiest place for the drivers,

http://www.vistax64.com/sound-audio/...er-update.html

You don't list your motherboard, but I would assume you will need the HD Codec driver and not the AC97 one.

As for you other question you'll have to wait for someone that uses their Realtek onboard sound.

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?

Thanks

Hi there everyone,
I have a bit of an annoying problem with the Realtek HD Audio Manager.
When i have left my computer turned on and i've been away from it for an hour or two, My screen is set to go into a standby mode but the computer will stay on.

When i wiggle the mouse to have the display turn back on, Realtek HD Audio manager is always opened up and displayed in the middle of the screen. Does anyone know how i can stop this doing it or why its doing it? I haven't opened it or anything but it seems to just randomly open upon itself.

Thank you for any help.

Hello, I'm having a problem with the audio manager listed above.

Because that audio manager offers things that my current one does not, I tried to install it to my computer. I went through the process, and restarted the computer as the process told me to, however I was unable to successfully install it, and it does not work on my computer. It will not install. can anyone help me with this?

It would be helpful if we knew what computer you had. Please finish filling out your system specs in your User CP (link in upper-right hand corner of the site). When you put the info in there it is viewable on all of your post on the site. It is extremely helpful when we know what you are working with.

A:Realtek Audio Manager, where have you gone!

Hi Jon and welcome to Vista Forums

Vista only has a basic audio driver included. To obtain full functionality, including the audio manager, you need to install the latest Realtek driver. See Latest Realtek HD Audio Driver Version for details on the latest release and Device Manager - Install Driver for my recommended method of installation.

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??

So I have Realtek HD Audio Manager, and when i built it with my computer tech, at his house, the sound worked through his speakers. When I brought my computer home, I hooked it up to my sound system (My previous computer was hooked up in the same way, sans Realtek). I have no sound. The problem doesn't seem to be with realtek, but with my sound system that I have it hooked up with. When I look at the settings, sound is being played, but just not relaying through my speakers, which are connect to the sound system.


What I'm looking for is plain and simple. I do not want to buy separate speakers for my computer, so I want it to work on what I have.

When I say sound system, I am talking about a glorified cd player, with all the amenities and big speakers attached to the main hub (which is where my computer is plugged into).

I'm just trying to figure out if maybe there is something in realtek that I just haven't turned on yet.
 

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager

Quick update. So I click the "test audio" button and I can hear the sound coming through my speakers. So now it comes down to, why isn't any sound, from programs outside of realtek, being heard?

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.
