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 have several computers of differents (HP, Toshiba, etc) and It happens the same problem. The audio device has an exclamation mark in Device Manager.

I think this problem is caused by some update windows. My OS is Windows 7 Home Premium 32bits .

Does anyone know what Windows Update should be uninstalled ?

Thank You.

Hello,

I have no sound coming from my speakers and when I look at the device manager the "Realtek High Definition Audio" has a yellow icon with an exclamation point. When I right click and click properties it says, "This device cannot start. (Code 10)".

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers several times and have even done a fresh install of Windows 7, but no luck.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Under my sound card driver hardware ID it is listed as:

HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0887&SUBSYS_1043837B&REV_1002

Available OS Memory: 6144MB RAM

A:Realtek HD Audio (Code 10)

What do you show in the Device Manager, Sound section?
Post a Screenshot of that.

Code 10 can be driver or can be some other hardware issue.
In the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek and then LEFT click "Uninstall" ALSO check the box to uninstall the drivers. Then restart the PC. If there are no hardware problems or conflicts, when Windows starts it will detect and and install the generic, basic function, "High Definition Audio Codec" for the sound driver. If this is installed, check to see if you have sound, and if the Speakers (High Definiton Audio Codec) is set as the default Audio playback device in the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound, Playback section.

If this works, you can consider reinstalling the RealTek drivers. Where did you get the drivers you have now?

Hello everyone,

Havent been here in a while so sorry if im doing something wrong, well my problem is with a Toshiba Satellite L505D-LS5005 after having an issue with freezing at start up I ran several antivirus and spyware scans and all came up negative but the freezing continued so I then was able to go into safe mode and do an MSconfig and unchecked everything booting up. That took care of the problem with the freezing and I was able to uninstall Norton and McAfee which I believe was the problem. (enabled one by one to identify the problem so far everything is playing nice no conflicts)

Soon after getting things back to normal I noticed that the audio drivers weren't working. This computer has the "High Definition Audio drivers" but it has "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" status on the drivers. I have tried the following solutions with out results:

Uninstalled drivers from the device manager and reinstalled them using the drivers from the Official Toshiba Website. After installing I restart but still no audio and the same "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" message on the status

I have also tried uninstalling all Realtek drivers such as Ethernet controller and Wireless device controller and done one by one. All other devices install and work after installation except the audio drivers.

I have also gone to Add or remove programs and uninstalled the Realtek audio drivers and reinstalled the drivers from realtek.com and still ... Read more

I'm running windows 10 on an HP Omen and after most recent windows update, my computers internal speakers are unavailable, as are any wired connected audio devices. Sound icon says no speakers or headphones are plugged in. Device manager, under sound, video, and game controllers does not show realtek HD audio. This only appears when I go to view and select show hidden devices. Then, under properties, I can see Code 45 (hardware device not connected. To fix, reconnect). I have attempted driver fixes including driver version 6.0.1.8591. Troubleshooters for audio detected nothing. I have tried rolling back the windows update.

I cannot find any sites that recommend steps beyond checking driver for the device. I've also tried calling HP tech support twice, and both times representatives told me they needed more time to find a solution (which they have failed to do).

Anyone who has dealt with this issue or has thoughts, any advice appreciated.

Hey guys! This is my first post and I hope I can get some help!
A few days ago, I set up my desktop and installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro. Of course, I had to get all my drivers manually, and I did. Everything was all fine and dandy until I realised that I had no sound. so searching I went until I found the driver I needed: Realtek AC'97 Audio. So I restarted and figured I would have sound.

In the text box it said: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"! I cannot seem to fix this issue! I went to RealTek and downloaded them.

Hey hello everyone, I am new member here. I already checked couple threads with this same title, but I didn't really find any solution.

Here's a thing. Yesterday I went to clean my computer for dust, so I opened case and unplugged all wires. Now everything is backup except there is no sound. In device manager I got that yellow/black '!' next to Realtek AC3'97 Audio. I reinstalled drivers couple times already, but nothing. I mean, I was just cleaning dust...

So I came up with that idea that it might be the problem with the front panel pins, which I probably connected in wrong ways. I don't even know in which way those pins should be facing when connecting. So the motherboard is Asus A8N5X (from 2005, yea old), computer runs on Windows XP SP3. I tried many combinations with those pins, but nothing. I get that yellow/black '!' next to device or I get nothing at all (it won't show the device at all).

I tried reading the manual, but the wire names are different on the actual wires than shown in the manual:

And the names on wires are:

GND (black wire)
GND (black wire)
Mic Bias (yellow)
Mic In (green)
Spkout L (red)

Spkout R (white)
Spkout R (white)

As you can see names duplicates. So I tried various combinations, but nothing. Once looked like I fixed it, after loading Windows up, there was sound icon in the tray, but PC suddenly restarted and next time there was no audio again.

A:Realtek AC'97 audio controller not working -- error (code 10)

Apart from the audio driver, it is critical to have the right chipset driver installed. The VIA southbridge needs to work properly to interface with the vinyl audio processor.
So try installing the chipset driver first, and then the audio driver. And of course make sure all MS updates are installed, including the MS UAA driver.

A:Realtek ac'97 audio drive not working, error code 10

No sound?

Try the simple things first. Speakers on and working? Plug them into a MP3 player, test that they actually amplify. Speaker plug in the correct socket in the PC? ( I mean not the Mic socket?) Have you looked in 'Device Manager' for a yellow warning by the entry for your sound option? Assume you know all the above, it's most likely still to be the wrong drivers. Go into 'Device Manager' and uninstall any sound drivers. Then go to www.drivereasy.com and download their free program, scan your PC and you will get the right driver I would think. You might also find a few other drivers out of date too. And NO it doesn't cost you to use that program. Hope this helps.

Hello,

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.....

I have an ASUS A54C laptop less than a month old.
-Windows 7, service pack 1.
64 bit.

About a week ago Asus live update automatically installed some updates (I didn't realise I could disable auto update, still getting used to this laptop)
when it restarted a few errors kept popping up and the webcam was not working. After googling I came across forum posts saying you have to manually download the drivers from the website. After doing that the webcam software showed a message "no audio device found" I thought ok, no problem I'll just re-install the audio driver (I had done this a few weeks previously because the built in mic was acting up).

The first half of installation completed, laptop restarted but then gave me the following error when trying to complete the second half:

Install Realtek HD Audio Driver Failure !!
[Error Code: 0x00000002]

Things I've already tried:
-I have tried several times to install the audio driver
-Tried installing different versions
- downloading directly from realtek
-System restore a couple times but it failed.
-Updated the BIOS (although I have no idea what this actually does)

I don't know what else to do.

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

OK you probably thought of this first thing but don't laugh when I ask: after the clean install, did your friend run the motherboard disk for his machine? Because the AC97 drivers are on that cd. He should disable it in "devices' and install the driver from the mobo cd and then enable it again and reboot. Should have sound. Only other thing is it could be disabled in the bios - you could check that too.

Do you have external (stand alone) speakers - if so try swapping them around to check if one is faulty - if you only have onboard speakers LHS one still could be faulty too :(
Also try looking in Control Panel> Sounds and Audio Devices>Device Volume>advanced and check that balance etc is OK.
Another check in Control Panel> Sounds and Audio Devices> Speaker settings>advanced>speakers check that you have the correct setup selected
Also could check device manager and see that there are no yellow exclamation marks next to your soundcard. Right click My Computer>properties>device manager look for Sound,Video and game controllers.

Hi, I'm having a few problems with certain sound drivers in windows 7. I recently done a clean install of Windows 7 and my sound is quite crackly.

In Vista everything was fine and I had the Realtek HD audio software installed.

Now whenever I try to install the same software it says there is no driver to support or something along those lines.

I'm just a bit confused as to what to do next. Whenever I open the device manager to check the driver it says "High definition audio device" and whenever I try to update the driver it says it's already got the latest driver installed.

Any help would be much appreciated
thanks

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire 8930 laptop with Realtek High Definition Audio. When I play some song that is stereo, both speakers on my laptop work. However, whenever the left speaker is supposed to play a part while the right is silent, the output of the left speaker drops by quite a bit and is severely muffled. Notice I said "drops", which means that at the very first moment of its solo operation it works properly, but then quickly falls down to a muffled rumble. I suspect that there is something wrong with my settings, however I can't be too sure because nothing I have tried works. Balance is set to 50/50 - that was the first thing i checked. Any suggestions?

Realtek ac 97 audio is what the motherboard disk has on it.
i've tried to vista and xp driver on the disk, but doesn't work.

i've tried to download a windows 7 driver from this forum and it doesn't work... wondering if vista and win 7 drivers are similiar.

i can't connect to the internet because the pc is at work...


I'm working on a home build pc with windows 7 ultimate.
it's my 1st experience with win 7.


It has a msi 945 neo 2 motherboard.
1.5 tb hdd. etc.
2 gig of ram.



everything works fine except no sound.

device manager shows that all the drivers are functional.

the audio driver.... shows that it's working, but no sound.
i've uninstall and reinstall several times.

i'm about to give up... but wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions.


thanks if anyone can help.

A:Realtek ac 97 audio problem... help!

Have you gone to the MSI site to download drivers for your motherboard.

Is this the right motherboard. If it is, I would download the Chipset and Audio and any other drivers you might need, then you will not have to go back to the site.

I've had this problem for a while, in a few different forms.

Basically, i'm not getting full 5.1 from my Creative system. I'm getting sound from my sub and two side speakers, but nothing from the center or satellites. It's the opposite if I plug my audio cable into the satellite socket on the sub, is it just a case of getting a splitter for my audio cable?

It's not a problem with the speaker system, i've tested all the units serperately and they all work fine.

MOBO: Asrock 4Core1600-D800

Specs say it's 5.1 compatible.

When trying to configure my sound, all I was able to do until recently is select either Stero or Quadrophonic settings. After a driver update the only option is Stereo.

I'm by no means confident enough to go deleting drivers trial and error, but am assuming it's a software problem or needing a splitter.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
 

A:RealTek HD Audio 5.1 problem

I had a logitech 5.1 surround system (can't recall the model) but I had a similar issue. What I ended up doing is just putting them on my laptop desk and using a splitter on them and plugged them into the two headphone jacks on the front, worked fine.

Hi guys, Something has been bothering me a lot lately,
see...

Everyone knows that there is a Left audio and a Right audio... right?
For some reason, I don't have my left sound, only my right side seems to be working...

My hardware:
ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 (yeah i know, its not the greatest)
Realtek HD Audio output
AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+
DirectX 9.0c

My Problem:
Left sound seems to be disabled

My trials:
-Checking control panel
-Re-rolled, uninstalled, reinstalled driver
-Formating Oo
-Plugging into the red/blue port and changing it to "Headphones" via Sound Effect

I don't really know what to do... i mean.. my soundcard is inbuilt so yeah

If anyone has this problem and also has a solution, i would love to hear it

A:Realtek HD Audio PROBLEM!!!!

Have you tried other speakers ?

Also go to start => all programs => accessories => entertainment => volume control and check the balance settings.

Check that you get a stereo output and not a mono output : set the balance completely to the left, if the left speaker is dead or if the left audio is disabled you shouldn't hear anything. If you hear the same thing than when you set the balance fully to the right it means your sound output is set to mono somewhere.

the rundown:

The drivers are there and working properly but when I went into control panel and open "Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices", it says there's No Audio Device under the volume tab. Under the Audio tab it states that there's no MIDI, Playback, or Recording devices.

My device manager has the following which are all working properly:

Audio Codecs
Legacy Audio Drivers
Legacy Audio Drivers
Legacy Video Capture Devices
Media Control Devices
Video Codecs

None of these devices have a ? or ! indicating that there's a problem. I should have a Realtek AC '97 Audio device in this list, but it is not there and I don't know what happened to it

I recently moved house and when I set up my PC at the new house I found that the volume level on my PC sound system was very low (on a scale of 1 - 10 it is now at 3 max) and nothing I tried could increase the volume level. I have a basic Logitech LS21 sound system that has never caused issues in the past. My PC has Realtek HD Audio. Could the sound card have moved ever so slightly on the motherboard when I moved house or is there a simpler solution?

I'm having a slight problem, it's not that either input jack isn't working, they both accept input (the front and rear pink ports)
The problem I'm having is using both ports at the same time, if I plug something in to the front then it either disables input from the rear, or doesn't work. Is there anyway to make it so that I can use both of the pink inputs at the same time?
I have a 2 ended 3.5mm wire plugged into the front, linked up to a PSP, and a mic plugged into the back.
Oh yh, I should also add that the listen to device doesn't work for the input that isn't working, BUT in the audio manager the playback option allows me to hear it (but doesn't play it through anywhere on my computer, just through the soundcard back to my headset.)
 

A:Realtek HD Audio problem

As far as I know, you can only use one input or the other, not both at the same time. There is most likely only a single (mic) input on the audio chipset. The two ports are simply for ease of use.

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?

I was having trouble with my webcam's microphone not working so what I did was update my sound card's drivers via this site Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / GT Series / GT5620

I thought this would solve my problem but it actually lead to a much bigger one. Ever since I updated, my audio is no longer functioning. I have tried uninstalling my driver and installing again. I tried to update the drivers. I tried rollingback, disabling and enabling. I even tried using system restore but unfortunately my computer gives me and error message saying that the system restore points are corrupted. Every time I tried something different I would get the same results. In the device manager it said that everything was working and nothing had an exclamation point. I checked my sound settings via the control panel and it also said everything was functioning correctly but when I go to the volume mixer it just has a red "X" on the icon and when I open it it tells me that no devices are connected. At first I thought this may be a problem with my actual speakers so I plugged in my headphones from the jack in front of my tower and still no sound. So I am at a loss here and am now asking for your assistance.

I have seen a lot of problems on this forum where people cant use their mics with Realtek HD Audio but i dont seem to have that problem. My problem is with the playback i believe. For instance, while using skype, people that I'm speaking with can hear every sound my computer makes like game sounds or music as if the sounds were coming from their computer. At first I thought it was just my mic picking up on my speakers but people can still hear sounds on my computer even when the mic is unplugged! This is a very annoying problem so does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

I'm having a similar problem. I just built a new computer and properly installed the latest Realtek HD audio drivers. But when using Ventrilo voice chat and transmitting a sound, if someone else talks at the same time, they can hear what they said. And what they hear is twice as loud.
I've messed around with and tweaked every volume setting on my computer, and nothing has fixed it.
Does anyone know if this can be fixed on Windows control panel, or on the Realtek audio control panel? ... Or at all?
Thanks.

I recently purchased the new Logitech G430 7.1 headset. The headset came with the default 2x3.5mm inputs. However, it also came with a USB adapter. After downloading the Logitech software for the product, I was told that you need to use the USB adapter in order to access most of the headset's features, notably the 7.1 surround sound.

So, I switched to the USB adapter, but when I did the left earphone stopped putting sound out and the right earphone barely put out sound. I took the USB adapter out, and plugged the 2x3.5mm inputs in, and I was prompted by a Realtek HD Audio Manager popup (As I always do if I plug any headset in) that has a list of different devices I might be using. I select headset and click on. The sound then returned to normal, coming out of both ears.

It appears in order for the sound to come out of both my earphones and at regular volumes and quality, I need to click that "Headphones" option, or any option, on that popup. The issue is, the popup is not "popped up" if I use the USB adapter. It is like my sound card/driver is having an issue with the USB over the 2x3.5mm input.

It seems like a Realtek HD Audio Manager problem, not a Logitech problem. Any thoughts/help?

Thanks

Right click on Computer under the start menu, go to properties. Click on Device manager on the left hand side. Inside the device manager, find your sound card. Right click the sound card and go to properties. After that, there should be a button that says rollback driver. Click it. Restart and let us know if that works for you.

Ok, so I've read all the threads here that delas with Realtek audio problems, but none of them seem to solve my problem.

So here we go: None of the drivers on Realteks site works. When I download and install them I just get a overcrossed speaker symbol. It says: No audio device installed. But in the control panel it says it is installed and working correctly. And yes, I have uninstalled any previous drivers and restarted my computer. However, if I use the drivers on the CD that came with my motherboard, I can get the audio to work. But when I plug something in on the front, like headphones for example, a popup says something like: This driver is not designed for Windows Vista, please visit Realtek to install the correct driver.

Also, there is also a problem with the driver on the CD. With it installed, the audio works only 2 times out of 3 when I boot my computer. Extremely annoying.

Please help!
