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.)

That driver is showing that its for XP SP2. There >> IS << a driver for it already on your comp
Suggest you go to device manager look for >>Problem devices<<,
or at the audio driver itself
Select update driver > browse >> let me pick >> my comp >> uncheck compatible devices >> scroll to Realtek >> select from right hand pane. (select and update)

So this all first started happening a few months ago when I was updating my audio drivers. The update was doing its thing then it crashed for some reason, and I haven't been able to update it at all since then. Oddly enough though, my audio has always worked fine. That is until today, for no reason that I can see, my audio has stopped working all of a sudden. But even though I can't hear anything either through my headphones or monitor speakers, I can see the little audio fader thing moving when I have some audio playing.

What can I do to try and fix this problem? Oh, and I should also note, the image that I posted, I get that pop-up everytime I start my computer. And the following is what it shows when you click the Details button.

Hi HS5964,

If the 'Audio' has been working fine lately, you may try performing a 'System Restore' to roll back 'corrupt software changes': System Restore
Note: Please create a 'Restore Point' before attempting the 'Restore': System Restore Point - Create

If the issue persists, you may remove 'Audio drivers' from 'Device Manager' and try installing fresh set of drivers.
- Click 'Start' > Type 'devmgmt.msc' (without quotations) in 'Search box > Tap 'Enter' > Locate and Expand 'Sound, Video & Game Controllers' category > Right click and uninstall the 'Realtek related' driver > Follow through with the uninstall > Allow 'Windows' to restart > 'Windows' will install updates for the 'Realtek Audio' (You may also install drivers from the manufacturer website: Realtek) > Recheck the results.

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings.

Hey, I've had no problems installing games in the past, in fact I installed Modern Warfare 2 just the other day, but ive recently purchased borderlands and an old copy of civilizations IV, and I cant get either game to install.

My motherboard is ASUS P8P67-M Pro. The manufacturer doesn't mention any drivers for Windows 10 x64 on their website as you can see here: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P8P67M_PRO/HelpDesk_Download/ I tried to use Windows 8.1 x64 drivers, Windows 8 x64 drivers and Windows 7 x64 drivers. None of them worked. I even tried to download drivers directly from Realtek website, it didn't work as well. I am pretty sure the drivers should be fine and work, but I think there is a problem with my operating system. I remember in the past I tried to install printer drivers and I had issues as well (while it worked fine on another PC, only this PC had issues installing the driver) and I also have problem installing the new feature update (Windows 1703), it always ends up with an error, so I can't update to this version as well.
I don't know what to do and I was thinking about re-installing windows, but it is very time consuming for me and I prefer a short solution to resolve this.
Is there any chance someone has any idea how to resolve this problem?

It took me 14 months to restore Stereo Mix as each time I was told to update audio drivers I would update HD Audio Manager so what is the difference between these two Realtek ?

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

Realtek HD Audio Manager is a software driver used on Windows computers. It handles recording and playback of audio programs. It is required for many audio programs to operate.

While Realtek HD Audio Drivers is a tool that allows you to listen to audio in HD on your PC.

Stereo Mix is used to transfer audio that the PC is playing to recording software such as Audacity, so that you can record what you?re hearing.

When one upgrade their OS like in your case from XP to Win7 with the same motherboard and sound card it is always advised & recommended to download the latest soundcard driver, because the only thing that had changed was the operating system.

The advice is not to go to windows for it, but to go to the motherboard manufacturer, because it would be specialised for the system rather than ... Read more

I installed the Realtek HD audio driver from the ASUS download site (P8Z68-V Pro MB) and all was well until I installed an MSI 560TI video card and let it install the Nvidia HD Audio drivers. The problem I have been chasing ever since was the Realtek HD Audio Manager popping up after the system exited extended sleep state (overnight). After much trial and tribulation and several Google Searches I concluded that the Realtek/ASUS HD Audio driver was conflicting with the Nvidia driver(s).

I did what suggested on one of the sites and that was to delete the Realtek HD Audio drivers and just let W7 install the default Microsoft drivers. Problem gone! Now I am curious, what did I give up and if I install the latest Realtek driver for W7 64-bit (v267) from the Realtek site will the Nvidia conflict return?

A:ASUS/Realtek, Latest Realtek versus default W7 Audio driver

Generally the Microsoft installed HD Audio Codec does not have all the features the motherboard vendor's sound drivers do. In most cases the actual driver is preferred and should be installed instead of the generic HD Audio Code drivers.

The NVIDIA driver is for the Video and the build in audio for HDMI audio. It should not be interferring with the PC's sound and in this case Realtek. I would uninstall the Microsoft drivers and reinstall the RealTek and see if you still have the problem. Generally a driver causes problems when exiting from sleep mode. Actually on "extended" sleep mode of overnight its really better to just shut down the system and then reboot in the morning. If you want it to be operational when you wake up, the BIOS should have an option for auto power on at whatever time you set.

After searching the web I noticed a lot of chatter about setting things up in the Realtek HD Audio Manager. This app does not show up in my control panel.

I recently upgraded my PC (Foxconn motherboard) to Windows 8 and downloaded what I understand to be the latest Realtek high definition audio driver ie 6.0.1.6662. The driver happily installed but at the moment is a bit reluctant to make an appearance among devices listed in the Device Manager. That's the status quo right now. No matter what I try (uninstalling, re-installing, uninstalling the four instances of Microsoft HD audio device listed), the Realtek driver does not get a mention and I don't have to tell you that my external speakers are deathly silent! USB headphones work fine though.

Just to make things interesting, yesterday (please don't ask me how, as far as I know I'm doing the same things now as I did then!), the driver would intermittently be recognised as a device and the external speakers would spring to life. But.....whenever I rebooted my PC, the Realtek device would disappear again and the speakers would be dead. It was almost as though the Microsoft audio devices were elbowing the Realtek driver out of the way when the PC was rebooted. Strange.

Has anybody else had a similar experience or can anybody suggest a solution.

Thanks.

A:Realtek Audio installation issues

Try uninstalling all listed Audio devices in the Device Manager and then restart the PC and see if Windows detects the RealTek.

Generally, the vendor audio drivers are the preferred. Non-vendor drivers can either not work or not work correctly. If there are no Vendor supplied Vista/Win7 driver then obviously you have try to find whatever will work.

Is this a "retail" foxconn motherboard or is it a foxconn motherbord in a "name" PC (e.g. Dell). If its in a name PC such as a Dell (Dell uses a lot of Foxconn motherboards) then the vendor's downloads for the specific model number should be checked for a driver.

After installing W8 on a Toshiba satellite laptop, all went well except Realtek AC97 won't install. Re-installing the driver didn't work. Windows reveals a code 10 and mentions the driver did not install correctly. Naturally there are no sound devices present with this occurrence. Plugging in an external USB sound device (creative sound blaster) works perfectly, just not as convenient as having the internal Realtek AC97 sound device working. BTW, this is not an HD sound driver, it's the regular Realtek driver. Tried a driver download from three additional sources w/o success.

What would be a better option for a Sound Driver? I used to have "Realtek High Definition Audio Codec" when I used Windows 7, but a few months ago I installed Windows 8.1 and just kept the generic "AMD High Definition Audio Device". Haven't really noticed that much of a difference. That's why I want your guy's opinion based on AMD vs. Realtek - (Quality, Performance, etc.)

Thanks!

A:Realtek or AMD Audio Driver

Realtek is for the onboard high definition audio codec built onto the motherboard. It is what you use when simply using a desktop or laptop.

AMD is the audio driver for HDMI, for when you have a tv attached to the computer or desktop. This driver is installed along with the video driver itself.

You should download/install the latest Realtek HD driver from their site.

The new audio drivers aren't the same as the old ones. Sadly, you did lose quite a bit of customizability (and in my case, my microphone went from being loud and adjustable to really, really quiet).

I just installed a new hard driver in a HP 734g computer that had a bad drive. I've installed a clean copy of Windows XP Pro an installed all the necessary drivers EXCEPT the Multimedia Audio Controller. Going to HP's site, it would appear to be Realtek AC'97 but no matter which version of the driver I get for it, about half way thru the installation the entire computer crashes and restarts. I have been working on this for HOURS an it's making me insane. I have to return the computer tomorrow and I'm at a loss for what to do.

Any help would be immensely appreciated.

Thanks!

Over a year ago I got a Sony Vaio, model VGN-C140G, originally ran xp mce. 5 or 6 months in, it crashed and I ended up reformatting and installed xp pro sp2 2600....I've got mostly everything working, but am having a difficult time with audio.

I've (numerous times) installed and reinstalled the drivers from Sony's website, Realtek's website...After intense googling I found that I needed to install an ms hotfix before installing my sound card, so I did that, and continued trying to install various versions of RealTek's hd audio device driver (different forums seemed to recommend different versions to different users, and said that they are all apparently "the one for xp pro")....anyway the versions I've tried are the installation files: WDM_180, 182 and 187.

If anyone has any suggestions for me, I'd really appreciate it. It seems that other people have had this problem, after an upgrade, specifically when switching to Vista, but I'm still in xp...and what works for one person isn't working for everyone else (especially me!) so...

Thanks.

Hello forum!

I have been struggling with this buzzing for such a long time and at this point I think I've tried nearly everything.

When plugged my two cables into the rear end of my PC (The pink and the green), it has imense amount of buzzing. A minor fix for this was: install Realtek Audio Device Manager, and put the output stick from green to the blue. This fixed the issue from constant buzzing, but now, when I play games, any game at all, there is a buzzing matching when I play (Probably synchronized with the FPS).

I tried using my front sticks, which fixed the sound issue for a small amount of time, untill the stick stopped working completely(I also would like very much, if my back sticks actually would work properly). The audio cable to the motherboard(the one in the lower left cornor of the board), was plugged in the AC '97. I tried changing that to HD Audio. Same problem. In the end I even tried disconnecting the cable completely, since it apparently just was the connection from the front sticks, and the might have an effect on audio if unused.

Of course, I also tried reinstalling drivers. (Currently AMD High Definition Audio Device and High Definition Audio Device are installed).

None of this worked. I really need a permanent fix on this. Nearly every part of the computer is farely new (maximum 3-4 months old).

Nothing seem to work, please help

A:Realtek Audio Driver buzzing

The "buzzing" sounds like a "ground loop hum". What else do you have plugged into the computer? Also, is it properly grounded? Improper or no AC Power ground can cause that. Even a defective power cord from the power supply to the AC power receptacle. Even remotely, if the PC is powered into a power strip, the power strip could be defective.

The HD Audio connector should be used as it provides some jack sensing that the older AC97 does not have.

I was trying to update the Realtek HD Audio Driver, but it failed. All I did was to download the latest version of the program from Realtek, uninstall the previous version of the program, and re-install the latest version of the program, but it did not work. I have tried re-installing the latest version of Realtek HD Audio Driver many, many times, and it still did not work. I even go to the Device Manager to update the driver software, but it did not really help because Windows encountered the "Data Invalid" error. I go to Services to turn off Windows Audio and turn it back on, but it did not solve the problem.

My only problem is this. How do I fix the installation of Realtek HD Audio Driver?

I Hope someone can help me with this.
Previously, I had the Realtek HD Audio Driver package installed along with Nvidia on my win xp system. Worked like a charm. Could go into NVIDIA Control panel and there I had the options "Realtek" for playing sound through my computer, or Panasonic (Nvidia HDMI connection to my TV. Now I have windows 8 God help me! "Talk about "If it ain't broke don't fix it!"

In the Nvidia Control Panel Audio Setup, now the only two options offered in the sound setup window are:
DVI: "No audio capable display available" (Greyed out! )
HDMI: Panasonic TV
It also shows sound readings for Panasonic (TV), Speakers, Earphones and Microphone. But if I try to switch from TV to Speakers (computer) it either doesn't make the switch and I lose the tv sound and end up with no sound reading in any category. I eventually get the tv sound back by repeating the setup process several times. I am hoping that installing the Realtek driver will make switching as simple as it was and that maybe not having it installed is the problem.

Here is the problem: Win 8 32 Bit keeps interrupting my attempts to install it with error message: Install Realtek HD Audio Failure Error code"-0001.

hi everyone, i installed W7 ultimate 32 bit onto my laptop (EI system 1212) about a month ago as i was fed up with vistas slowness but ever since then whenever i play any sound be it music or watching a movie or anything the speakers make a horrible distorted crackling which makes it unbearable to listen to.
initially i waited for the next driver to be released and downloaded and installed it but to no avail, the crackling is still there.
one slightly odd thing is that when i uninstall the audio driver the sound returns to normal until i restart my computer.
i am at a bit of a loss as i have also recently installed cubase 5 and virtual DJ but cant use them now!
please help someone
thanks in advance

On the Dell users forum, some of the crackling has been traced to video card drivers. Try updating the video drivers and see if that helps.

I'm running Windows XP SP2. I had absolutely no problems installing the audio driver from the disc that came with my motherboard the first time around. Unfortunately, I had to reformat and reinstall Windows because my harddrive was being recognized as disk "i" instead of "c" (causing alot of problems for me installing software). So now that problem has been solved, but I can't get the Realtek audio driver installed. A message pops up each time I try to install it which says: "Install Realtek HD audio driver failure". Could it be because I also installed "uaa bus driver - version 5.10.0.5010? I don't think that one was meant to be used with Windows XP SP2 (it's not listed as being one of the OS's that supports this driver). Of course, now I have no idea how to get rid of it, and a balloon pops up from the taskbar each time I turn on my computer saying "new hardware installed". I try to install it using the wizard, but it won't install. What's gone wrong?

Their are several ways one would be og to your MB site and lookup the drivers for your card, it should tell you what it is.

The other is to go to device manager>click on sound device>properties>details tab>drop down menu> select hadward ID>Copy and Paste it and either we or you can put it in a search engine and it should direct you to what it is.

Hello everyone.
I'm experiencing an annoying problem with the Realtek HD Audo Manager and I'm 100% sure it's being caused by the screenreader Jaws 16.0. I already got in touch with my Jaws dealer but am anxious to hear your feedback as well, because Freedom Scientific hasn't updated this issue over the past five months.
I should first mention that I'm not allowed to start Jaws without speech, even though I use a braille display withou speech. I have to turn the speech off manually. If I don't, the program crashes completely and just won't start at all.
Two weeks ago we used my computer to play a DVD on our TV via a HDMI connection. We turned off Jaws, and everything went fine. Last week, I was in a hurry and was stupid enough not to turn Jaws off, and I've regretted that ever since. Anyway, the HDMI connection partially worked: we got the image on the TV, but not the sound. In the end, we had to tell my computer not to use the built-in speakers in the control panel before the TV would produce sound, unlike the week before that. That sound was still normal.
After unplugging the HDMI cable, the sound coming from my computer, both when using speakers or headphones, sounded as if it were still coming through our TV: high frequencies unnaturally sharp and low frequencies unnecessarily emphasised. I went through all my sound settings five times, but everything seemed in order. In the end I lost patience and re-installed Realtek completely and now I'm struggling to understand the co...
