Hi everyone, I would be very grateful for some help please!

My laptop recently installed a BIOS update - I don't know what this was but since it happened I have been having sound problems with my laptop. After the update I had no sound. I read around and found how to get the sound back on - I did this by uninstalling AMD high definition audio device and high definition audio device. I would then restart the laptop and the sound would be working again. But when the laptop would be turned off, on turning back on it would re-install the above 2 things again automatically and the sound would no longer work.

I noticed that when the sound was working realtek high definition audio was listed under sound, video and game controllers in the device manager and when it wasn't working this wasn't there. Every time I uninstalled the AMD high definition audio device and high definition audio device the realtek one would be automatically installed when the laptop was restarted but then taken off on the next restart. I tried disabling the first 2 to see if that made any difference but it didn't. I noticed the drivers could be removed for the AMD high definition audio device so I tried that - that is now fully removed but I still have the problem with sound.

My laptop keeps automatically installing high definition audio device. When this is listed the sound doesn't work and the realtek high definition audio isn't listed. When I uninstall that - on the first restart the realte... Read more

A:realtek high definition audio and high definition audio device problem

First, the AMD High Definition Audio Device is ONLY for HDMI audio. It has nothing to do with the PC audio (speakers and/or headset).

Are you sure it was a BIOS update? Those are normally not automatic. The BIOS is the heart of the PC and controls the hardware configurations.

The basic Windows installed High Definition Audio Coded/Device is a generic audio driver. It can be installed for the PC audio and/or the HDMI audio. As this is a generic, basic function driver, the correct hardware driver needs to be installed.

Without the actual HP model number, I can't research what actually belongs on your PC. Apparently it is RealTek, but as it isn't functioning properly, or conflicting I still need to research the PC's specs.

Recently, I installed this Windows XP Professional SP2 on my comp. Once done, I am not been able to install my audio drivers for Realtek High Definition Audio. I couldn't understand what the problem is. Before, they were working fine, now since I had re-installed the Windows again, the whole thing came into being. I had done reinstalling the Windows several times now.

The drivers for the device are installed. But it says the device cannot start.[Code 10].

I had done loads of things, such as :

1. Reinstalling the drivers after uninstalling the same.
2. Rebooting as appropriate.
3. Surf through different sites to check, what best I can do, to tackle the whole thing. But nothing so far.

Hopefully someone be able to tell me, what to do.....

I need my sound back, as my work is completely hung up without it.....

hi, i'm new here and found these forums by googling. i'm deeply sorry for posting this if its against rules or have been posted before without doing a search

i just bought a P35-DS3L Motherboard in less than a month ago, installed everything and it ran fine including my audio. all of a sudden i had blue screen, i have the idea whats wrong but cannot fix (note: my audio is still working even though the blue screen started).

i decided to do a quick format instead of a full format because i didn't backup my files. after finish installation of Windows XP SP2 Professional, i reinstalled all my drivers and noticed my Audio Driver isn't starting up after restart (note: yes, i tried installing Microsoft UAA Driver and then the Realtek HD Audio Driver)

since it was a quick format, i thought maybe the existing old drivers have been causing problem.

so i tried to uninstall Realtek High Definition Audio Driver and i start to get the message "Realtek HD Audio driver remove failure". i rechecked my files in windows, some of the files are removed but not all

did a restart after failure of uninstall and tried to reinstall starting from Microsoft UAA Driver and then Realtek HD Audio Driver and restarted after the installation again (note: nothing went wrong with the installation)

after the computer restarted, i noticed the Realtek HD Audio isn't starting and when i check on Sounds And Audio Devices in Control Panel, it says No Audio Device. i checke... Read more

I have a new Dell PC that has Realtek High Definition Audio. As best as I can describe it, while watching videos or in a game, it periodically and with no particular intervals of time, will momentarily (no more than a second) pause and I'll hear a buzz. It then carries on as if nothing had happened. There is no rhyme nor reason to when this happens. Any ideas?

A:Realtek High Definition Audio problem

That sounds like what a bad speaker or speaker connection would do. Do you have a headphone you can connect to the headphone jack (or the rear GREEN speaker jack) and see if does it with the headphone? That would help to isolate the problem.

We have also seen audio problems caused by wi-fi or a cell phone or cordless phone close to the PC/speakers.

Get your thinking caps on, this ones a cracker!

I recently purchased a second-hand Intel D915GAG Motherboard to replace a dead board, and everything has gone perfectly until it came to installing audio drivers for the Realtek High Definition Audio, which is on-board.
The drivers installed without a problem, and Device manager reports that the device is working properly, and that the drivers are up-to-date.
However, the Sounds and Audio Devices properties are telling me different, claiming that no audio device is installed! Only Device manager seems to know the audio drivers are there. I have tried everything i can think of, but have hit the wall....so any help at all will be greatly appreciated.

I think my question is this: how do I set up VSX-1124 (a Pioneer AVR) in Control Panel/Sound and Hardware/Sound so that its driver is Realtek HD Audio and not the Intel Display Audio one?

In Device Manager under Sound, Video and game controllers, I have two sound card drivers, Realtek High Definition and Intel Display Audio. I don't understand how Realtek High Definition Audio drivers work in relation to the Intel Display Audio drivers. If I go to Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound then Playback, there are four options, as you can see from the picture below.

I'm guessing that if I choose the receiver as my default device that I'm using the Intel Display Audio drivers and any of the other three options that I'm using the Realtek drivers. Is this correct? If the receiver is the default device, everything works fine; I get sound from sites like cnn.com and I can listen to internet radio, etc. However, if Speakers are the default device, I don't get sound. Is this normal? If so, what's the reason for having Realtek? If it isn't normal, will I notice a difference if I use the Realtek drivers? If I would see/hear a difference, how do I get them to work?

A:Realtek High Definition Audio and Intel Display Audio

The RealTek is for the regular PC sound. The Intel Display Audio is for HDMI sound. If an HDMI cable is plugged in Windows will automatically default to the HDMI as the "default playback device". If you have an HDMI cable plugged in and want the PC sound you must manually change the playback device. If you want both HDMI and PC audio, you can't have that as Windows will only allow one default audio playback device.

Does this answer the question?

I recently installed the program, Driver Sweeper, which picked up a problem with my audio driver, Realtek High Definition Audio after my speakers had been making some static sounds while playing audio. After running Driver Sweeper and cleaning the driver I restarted the computer.

When I returned to windows my driver had been uninstalled. Windows ran a troubleshooter when I clicked on the volume controls. Then it automatically installed the same driver back again. My speakers continue to make the same sounds after this and if I run Driver Sweeper again the same thing happens again. I'm not sure whether I should install a different audio driver or something.

Thanks for the help

Hello, my name is steven and I would like to begin by saying that I am an amateur when it comes to working with computers. I wanted to free up space to operate my computer faster and hopefully stop lagging while playing games or just browsing for that matter and it seems the only certain amount of RAM to add to increase my speed is the lowest that is sold @ kingston technology which is a 1GB card. Unfortunately, being the amateur I am, I was stumped here , http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/system_specific/server where they ask for my manufacturer, product line, and model. I plugged in all the numbers I could think of that might work for each but nothing matched when it came to the model # and I personally have no clue what my product line is so as I said I was just guessing I have all the information about my computer (from what I believe to be the complete transcript of it) and I just need to be able to answer the questions on kingston technologie's website so I can get my recommended RAM card that will hopefully be compatible with my computer. Nothing about product line is stated and the manufacturer of the cpu is unclear and so I would like help identifying the answers to the three questions posed on kingston technologies website.

A:Realtek & high definition audio?

You should either "rollback" the drivers to RealTek or reinstall RealTek. Usually, the "High Definition Audio" is a generic driver that Windows (Microsoft) provides. Do not allow Windows to automatically update/install the sound driver (some of the other drivers are OK).

If you want to try the rollback first, to to the Device Manager, and the properties for the sound device. Click the Driver Tab and then Click the Roll Back button.

I hope this is the right subforum for this!

I've just recently gotten a new computer, and installed Windows 7 64 bit on it.

I'm using an ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard, with RealTek High Definition Audio Codec.

My problem is that my computer seems to only be recognising devices plugged into one audio jack. Basically, when I started the computer up, the speakers (which were already plugged in to the green port, as normal) worked fine, and indeed they still work fine now.
However, if I plug headphones or a microphone in to any of the other ports, it says 'you have plugged a device into the audio jack', but nothing actually happens - headphones are silent, my microphone doesn't receive any sound. The front two jacks don't even make that message pop up - nothing happens at all.

If I unplug my speakers and plug my headphones in to that jack, they seem to work - but obviously that's less than ideal. So it's as if this one jack works and none of the others do.
(My microphone doesn't work when plugged into that jack of course)

I've tried reinstalling the drivers from CD, updating the drivers through windows, updating the drivers from the RealTek website, reinstalling windows, etc. No change at all.

Any ideas?

A:RealTek High Definition Audio problems

Each port has it's own use. Check the motherboard User Manual for specifics.

With that said, the "green" port is the standard audio out port. This is where you would connect your speakers or headphones to hear the audio. It is a standard stereo output or in multi-channel mode, the front left/right.

Did the front panel ports ever work? They need to be connected to the proper outputs on the motherboard.

If they have worked in the past and/or they are properly connected, then you most likely have a driver issue. Several of the Realtek chipsets do not work well with Win7, especially 64bit.

A:Realtek High Definition Audio Codecs Issue

Hi. . .

I need to get some system info from you. The easiest way is for you to run the Sysnative BSOD File Collection App -


Please attach the resulting zip file to your next post.

I also need to know your system's manufacturer and the product number.

What was the reason that you updated the driver?

Have you tried to roll the driver back to the previous version?

Please provide the Realtek link that you are now using/have used to update the driver.

Have you tried the Realtek audio codec supplied by your system manufacturer's (OEM) support site? Usually, OEMs will modify the Realtek codec and it is the modified one that ends up working.

Go to the OEM support site, download the Realtek audio codec, install it snd see if there is any difference.

First and foremost - ALWAYS create a system restore point before updating drivers.


Regards. . .

High Definition Audio Device suggests a generic Windows installed sound driver rather than the RealTek driver.

Make sure you are getting the correct driver, either Vista or Windows 7 for 64 bit OS, from the PC or motherboard vendor's site. Windows XP drivers are not compatible. If you get the warning on a valid driver, click the Install anyway and it should install.

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.

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)

Once i deleted this Realtek Audio driver i lost sound instantly (which was expected) and proceeded to download the 3 drivers from the Acer Website. Here is the link to the website and the drivers i d... Read more

A:No Sound on PC (Realtek High Definition Audio Driver)

So today i downloaded Assassins Creed 1 and proceeded to install. The installation worked fine and when i click the Assassins Creed Icon on my desktop i get this message:

"Your Sound-Driver is currently used by an other application. Close any application using your Sound-Driver and try again... else you'll not be able to hear and sounds or musics."

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. I thought it might have been the download but i downloaded a bunch of different ones and i keep getting the same message. Any help would be amazing. Here are my specs:

Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire V3-571
System type: 64 bit

I don't see how re-installing my sound drivers would fix this problem because everything works fine... so instead of suggesting that lets try something else.

I accidently deleted the Realtek High Def Audio Driver. How do I get this back or equivalent for Windows 10 please

Hey. I have the Logitech LS21 speakers. I know they are cheap speakers. When I first set them up, I was actually very impressed with the volume and quality of the sound and bass. It was enough to fill my modest sized room with loud clear sound and rich base when listening to music. I had them connected to the audio jack on my ASUS M5A78L LE using the Realtek audio described in the title.

At some point I chose to reinstall Windows. I installed and updated all the drivers, etc and set the speakers up the same way as before. Only this time the audio was around 20% of the volume it was previously with volume up full. In games it's barely audible at all unless I put my ear to one of the speakers.

I first tried using different Realtek drivers including the ones shipped with the motherboard, the latest on the ASUS web site as well as the latest from Realtek's site. All of these drivers yield the same results. I also tried tweaking many settings in Windows and with Realtek's audio manager. Nothing seems to raise the volume.

So I decided to test the speakers out without the Realtek audio. Plugging the jack directly into my monitor and using an AMD HDMI Driver. Surprisingly, the speakers were now much, much louder. However, without the use of the sound card, the audio became quite distorted when the volume or base was raised. And in general, just wasn't as good quality.

I'd like to get back the loud clear sound and deep base I had originally, but I do not know what else to try.

A:Realtek® ALC887 8-Channel High Definition Audio Very Quiet

What do you show in the Device Manager, for sound devices? You should only have two, the AMD HDMI and the RealTek. If you have the generic Windows installed HD Audio Codec, uninstall that, then restart the PC and see if that changes anything.

Hi all,

I'm about to pull my hair out. Basically I cannot get my mic to work on my Amilo Li 1718. I bought myself a Philips SBC MD110 karaoke mic. I'm running Vista.

It all plugs in fine, but here's the problem. I have to SCREAM into the mic to get the smallest sound out of it. I've adjusted every sound property possible. The mic is fine, it works on another computer. I have a Realtek High Definition onboard card.

I've searched online for help - It seems this is a common problem. However everyone seems to have a different interface than my Realtek sound manager. I expect mine is for this Amilo series only. I even looked on the Fujitsu website and their PDF for Realtek isn't like my interface at all.

I've downloaded new drivers - to no avail.

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

Hello everyone, well, for the past few days now. I've been experiencing this issue of having no sound. On the lower-right corner of the system tray, there is a Speaker icon with a red circle with a white "x" on it. So naturally, I assumed that this must be due to the sound drivers corrupting. So I went to the manufacturer's website for my Notebook. Which is an Acer Aspire 4730Z running on Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2.

The drivers I downloaded were Realtek High Definition Audio, after the files finished downloading I reinstalled them, only to encounter yet another problem. Which was that they failed to install. The specific error message that appeared was "Install Realtek HD Audio Driver Failure". So I tried to install it again, this time through the Device Manager by updating the driver software. This also, did not work, the error message for that was "This operation returned because the timeout period expired".

I've also tried the System File Checker tool, Microsoft Mr. Fix-It tool, the Check Disk utility, editing specific Registry entries in the Registry Editor, resetting the Services back to their defaults. Absolutely nothing has been successful so far. I've even attempted to reboot into Safe Mode, and install the software. Which surprisingly enough, worked. I rebooted my computer again for the changes to take effect, just when I had thought that I finally solved this annoying dilemma, restarting comput... Read more

i have a gateway computer and i want to record some audio from my computer. i looked online how to do this and stereo mixer kept coming up. i looked in my sound and show disabled and disconnected devices are both selected and i do not see stereo mixer in the list of recording devices. can someone please help me on how to get it?

A:conexant high definition audio and intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI

The Conexant HD Audio would be the device that supplies the Stereo Mixer, if Gateway enabled it. Some vendors have not enabled it to avoid DRM (Digital Rights Management) issues. I've seen a couple of Dell's that way.

Have you tried reinstalling the Gateway supplied driver? If not, give that a try first.

Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / NV Series / NV54

If that does not work, unless you can find a compatible Conexant driver somewhere else you may be doomed.

I have the following problem since yesterday evening on my Windows 7 and can't find a solution.
The audio signal for the standard Windows Realtek High Definition Speaker output is loud and distorted (if I don't set it to a really low value). I noticed the distortion when I started watching a youtube video and I was just listening to music not even an hour earlier just fine. I didn't install any program or application during that time nor did I download anything.

This is the case for the headphone jack at the front and the back of my computer.
All applications (System Sound, Music, Firefox, Games, etc.) are affected. If I switch the audio output to my TV (connected via HDMI) or my Scarlett Audio interface (connected via USB) the sound is fine.

I've tried the following things to no avail (not in this particular order):
updating Realtek driver
using different headphones
making sure that no effects like EQs are enabled neither in the windows sound setting nor in the Realtek HD Audio-Manager
virus and malware scan (ESET NOD32 / malwarebytes)
running ccleaner (to clean registry etc. )
closing all running programs
uninstalling Realtek driver and letting windows automatically install one
installing older version of Realtek driver (and later updating again, I'm at the latest version at the moment)
updating BIOS
updating Nvidia GeForce driver
uninstalling video and audio codecs
testing different bitrates and samplerates in the windows speaker settings
disableing all other audio devi... Read more

A:no sound ,Win7-ultimate x86,realtek high definition audio card

Assuming you have a Win 7 (or Vista) RealTek driver installed.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. If there were some type of corruption between RealTek and Windows this will fix it.
