Difference between Realtek HD Audio Manager & Realtek HD Audio Driver

Q: Difference between Realtek HD Audio Manager & Realtek HD Audio Driver

It's been a year since I migrated from Windows XP to Windows 7 which I downloaded Realtek HD Audio Manager R2.70 and audio has been working fine except the only issue it didn't come with 'Stereo Mix' preventing capability to record sound direct from the soundcard. 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.

Thanks

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.

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 a generic driver, which might not be as good, or even cause problems.

Help. I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 64bit (on my HP Vista 32 machine). Life is grand! My problems started when I tried to listen to the microphone input through my speakers. The front microphone inputs did not work so I downlaed the Realtek HD Audio Drivers (recently updated) from the realtek site. The inputs now work and I can record from the microphone through the Sound Recorder app in Accessories but can not hear the microphone through the speakers while I am recording. 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. Does anyone know where I can get it (if I really need it). The Realtek site only has the driver download (not the manager). Am I missing something, am I confused, or both?

Well, I'm doing a fresh Windows install and I'm having a little problem. With my old system, along with the Realtek driver install, came an Audio Manager (with nice features such as an equalizer). Now with my fresh install (different motherboard, but on-board realtek sound), I just installed the latest driver for the Realtek High Definition Audio (R2.67) but there's no Audio Manager on my System Tray and according to Windows, It's using a Microsoft audio driver instead of the Realtek one. I need some help. Why is Windows not using the Realtek driver and how do I get back the Audio Manager?

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.

Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

So I recently got a new motherboard and because it's a new board, it came with it's own audio drivers, and my old ones were useless (obviously). I installed these new audio drivers and i found that it changed the look (and most likely the software itself) of the Realtek HD Audio manager, before i got the new Manager, my microphone and audio both worked fine, now my audio still works fine, but my mic is messed up, when i talk, it doesn't pick it up, but if i blew air into the microphone, it picks it up but it is crackling, if i blew into the mic for 3/5 seconds then it would completely stop picking up the sound. Nothing happened to my mic during this process.

I have five speakers and one subwoofer connected to a Samsung HT-Z310 DVD-player, and then connect that to my MacBook using AUX 2.

(I have no idea what AUX 2 is, but that's what the tiny display on the DVD-player says.)

The problem is that the Mac only plays stereo on them.

When I open Realtek HD Audio Manager, in the "Speakers" tab, and the "Speaker Configuration" subtab, "Speaker Configuration" is set to "Stereo" by default. And it's grayed out, so I can't change it.

Further than that, I only have two options: "Full-range Speakers" - "Front left and right" and "Headphone Virtualization".

I have also tried "Control Panel", "Hardware and Sound", "Sound", marking the speakers and clicking "Configure", but the only option displayed in the list is "Stereo".

I have no idea what's wrong. The rear speakers work, but play the same sound as the front speakers.

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.

My computer has Realtek HD Audio Manager installed on it as the main audio manager. I have 4 speakers plus a subwoofer, so I set it as 5.1 speakers and unchecked the button for a center speaker in the manager so that it won't make my sub act as a center. However, on the back of my desktop, the jack for the sub is also the jack for the center speaker. So, whenever I listen to my music, it won't use my sub, but if I check the option for having a center speaker, it tries to make my sub act as a center speaker, which makes it sound awful.

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.

However, the center and subwoofer output use the same jack, and my subwoofer receives no signal when I uncheck the center speaker. If I leave the center speaker box checked, it tries to make my sub act as a center speaker, making my music and videos sound horrible.

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

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.

I have gone into the vista control panel and selected "Show Disabled" and "Show Disconnected" but with no avail. Again Thanks.

Hi, bretzero, and welcome to the forums.

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

Well, I re-formatted the other day and have a problem that I've never had before, so here goes.

I currently have my Hi-Fi and my headphones plugged into my machine, they used to work perfectly together. I mean that the same sound off every program played into both of them at the same time. If I didn't want to use my speakers, I'd simply turn the volume down on the front of it.

Now, after re-formatting, I can't get them to combine in Realtek HD Audio Manager. I don't know if this is to do with RHDAM or if it's a Volume Mixer problem. It's seriously starting to annoy me. Even if I could just choose the programs that each device used (So that I could put all programs onto both of them, that would be great.)

I'm using the front Headphone and Mic socket for my headphones (Pink & Green.)

For my Hi-Fi I'm using the back black and pink sockets. There are 4 other sockets that I could use, but I've tried them all and to no avail. The other colours, just in case it's relevant are blue, black, green and bronze.

Can someone help me please?

Thank you.

P.S. I searched and couldn't find anything that related to this exact problem.

P.P.S. I've found that, the same as before, if I blow into my mic, or move it, the sound comes through my Hi-Fi speakers.

Hi there

Someone pleeeeease help me. This is driving me nuts! I have an Acer TravelMate 2480 Notebook. It came pre-installed with the Realtek HD Audio Manager. For the first few months all was well and then I started having problems with sound. The on board speakers work well but intermittently I would experience problems when plugging either the headphones or external speakers in. Sometimes it would work, sometimes it wouldn’t. The on board speakers do cut out (mute) when externals are plugged in which is correct but no sound is heard from them (externals). If I then unplug the jack the on board speakers work. Initially I thought it was a hardware problem with the actual headphone socket but too many people in forums scattered around the net have had the same problem that I seem to feel it’s a software issue. I followed a lengthy piece of advice this afternoon which involved completely uninstalling the Realtek program and drivers from the system (including the registry) and re-installing the latest version which I downloaded but I am still experiencing the same problem. Is this problem familiar to anyone and does anyone know of a solution? I need good quality sound for the work I am doing and the on board speakers are not sufficient.

Thanks

Having some issues. My friend just downloaded it onto my computer that he made for me, and I've never used it before.

It's not letting me have a headphone. I'll plug in the headphone and microphone jacks but it still plays through the main speakers and I can not figure out how to get my mic to work and how to get it to go to do the headsets.


Any help is greatly appreciated.

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??

You could try updating your sound card drivers, and software. Also make sure you havn't messed with your media players equalizer.

I know I have it because it's opened right now. But the reason it opened was because I plugged in an audio device. So where do I open it manually? There's nothing in the Program Files folder.

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.

Help me get my Realtek Audio Manager back please!!!
Thanks in advance, Jon.

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.
