Realtek HD audio driver buzzing on windows 7 64

Q: Realtek HD audio driver buzzing on windows 7 64

Today i have installed windows 7 on 64 bits and i just cannot get past this problem with the sound. I have a 5.1 surround audio system and have installed the latest Realtek HD audio driver on my pc to get all the speakers going.

After the installation of the driver every sound came with buzzing. The music, the clicking on folders, games, anything, every sound was buzzing, just like the static you get on radio, a blurred sound, if i may call it that way. This was the first thing to install on my PC after the Opera browser. I only have the standard High Definition Audio Driver from the windows, no other audio driver, so i don't think that anything can interfere with the Realtek driver. Can this be because it's 64 bits?

Can anyone help please? I've seen this problem on the net but there was no exact answer. Why is Realtek software acting this way? I tried reinstalling or tried older versions, nothing helped. :??:
Can anyone give any piece of advice?

Welcome to the Windows 7 forum.

If you have RealTek, you should not also have the "High Definition Audio Codec" which is the Windows installed generic sound driver. Normally, when you install the proper sound driver, such as RealTek, the High Definition Audio Codec, driver is automatically deleted.

Please fill in the "My System Specs". It helps us to help you.

Also, please post a screenshot of the Device Manager, Sound section.

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.

Hello, I hear a buzzing noise in my headhones when plugged into the headphone jack of my aspire 5760-6025. I can fix the issue by running the driver update executable file Vista_Win7_R249.exe However when i do this i can see no stereo mix channel under my recording devices on windows 7 64-bit. I need to see this option because I am a musician and I need to record the sound I hear on my computer, in order to capture the effects within the live recordings I do. I can do this if I update the driver with the Vista_Win7_R249 exported to program files folder named realtek then update the drivers through the device manager. However when I do this I get the buzzing noise again. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've got a headset with a mic and In the Audio Manager i've got the playback volume muted. When i un-mute it there is a faint buzzing noise. thats not a big problem but when i want to talk to friends on skype. I'm really quiet and they can hear the buzzing noise. When I try to use the Microphone Boost, the buzzing gets louder. Its a Deep Buzzing noise. I've done many things to try and fix this, messing around with it, going online to find a fix.

I know its not my headset or my mic causeing it; did a test with another headset.

If this problem has been solved already, please link - Thanks

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager, Buzzing noise in playback

Do you get the Buzz with speakers (only) too? If you hear it with the speakers, physically disconnect the speakers from the PC and then see if you hear it in the headphone - with the Headphone only connected, not the mic.

Do you have any other AC powered device (other than a monitor) connected to the PC?

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.

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.

I am unable to find a suitable driver for my computer. I have a Compaq Presario R3000AP 3.2 GHz 2.5GB Ram and have upgraded to windows 7 with SP1.

I did a clean install and all the windows 7 drivers were installed and are compatible except for the Realtek AC'97 audio driver.

I downloaded and installed the Realtek AC'97 Codecs from the Realtek website, but unfortunately this was unsuccessful . Then I downloaded and installed the SP29586 Realtek AC'97 Driver version 6.0.1.6305 from the HP website and this was also unsuccessful. Finally I downloaded from the Microsoft website the same Audio Driver version 6.0.1.6305 and installed it but unfortunately again this was unsuccessful.
In the Device manager under Sound, video and game controllers it show below "Realtek AC'97 Audio device", version 6.0.1.6305 but in properties is shows "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Windows 7 does recognize the sound device, but is unable to completely install it, even though under the "driver file details tab" it show drivers installed in the windows directory.
I understand that Microsoft does not support the Realtek driver, but there must be some kind of fix or even someone out there that is able to rewrite the driver somehow. Seems a shame to have to get a new computer because of this, as it is very fast with windows 7 even though it is only a Pentium 4.

I have no more options and I am asking for help. PLEASE!

Recently I decided to go ahead and update to the Windows 8.1 version of the Realtek HD Audio Driver. I procrastinated because it told me I'd have to uninstall the original audio driver and I knew it would take a while to do everything needed. It didn't help that after uninstalling the original audio driver, then restarting like Windows told me to do, I kept getting error messages that forced my computer to restart until eventually my computer let me log in and install the updated audio driver.

However, with the updated version of this driver I had the same issue I got with the original one only much much worse. The original Realtek HD Audio Driver that I had on my computer made music and videos sound absolutely awful when headphones were plugged in. I found out that this is because the driver automatically puts on so-called "enhancements" whenever headphones are plugged in. This was a very simple fix, simply go to "Sound", then under "Playback" you click on "Speakers", then go to "Enhancements" and check the box labeled "Disable all sound effects." Then sound through headphones would return to normal.

Well, with the Window 8.1 version of this audio driver, I can do the same thing, but it never stays that way. Every time I plug in my headphones, it resets back to having enhancements. The strange thing though is that it says the enhancements are disabled but when I reactivate the enhancements(No difference in sound ... Read more

I thought that once Windows 10 would come about, the Realtek drivers would be updated to not only accomodate W10, but fix the problem that has been plauging HP's Beats Audio laptops for years: the sound leveling/fluctuation issue. I guess I was hoping for too much; the sound still  fluctuates when trying to "level out" the volume when internal speakers are plugged into the audio jack.  This makes audio--music, videos, movies, ect.--impossible to listen to.  The internal laptop speakers, however, still sound good with the two subwoofers.  This is the exact same issue that I was having in W8.1. I've rolled back to Microsoft's HD audio driver like last time.  Finally this driver was updated for W10 as well.  Now the laptop speakers are horrible as expected.  These steps were done to remedy the problem for me in W8.1.  I was also able to uninstall HP's audio driver, get rid of Beats Audio control panel, and replaced it with Realtek's own generic drivers in W8.1.  This allowed me to be able to have an equalizer to control the sound.  This driver also made the laptop speakers horrible, but I was able to take control of my external speaker sound, which is used 95% of the time.  I can't do this, however, in W10; it won't allow me to get rid of Beats Audio control panel no matter what.  This is and will continue to be an issue unless HP decides to supply an update to their Realtek ...

A:Windows 10: New Beats Audio Realtek driver, Same Terrible S...

Well, since I haven't gotten a single reply from HP's mods, I actually found a way to stop Microsoft from automatically downloading the HP Beats Audio/Realtek audio driver to my W10 device. The KB update, KB3073930, is a standalone tool that allows hiding of pesky and arwy updates.  If you want to keep using the Microsof HD audio driver,  follow these instructions: 1.  Download the KB update tool here:  https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/30739302.  Uninstall the HP Beats Audio/Realtek audio driver and restart computer (it tells you to do so after uninstall)3.  After restart, open the tool and follow the steps.  It's pretty self-explanatory. Albeit a temporary solution, it's a breath of fresh air to not hear distorted, fluctiating, and compressed sound out of my external speakers when I play any media.  Now, If I can only use the generic Realtek drivers without it being overridden by Beats Audio's atrocious control panel...probably has something to do with the registry.  I, however, shouldn't have to go through these lengths to get clear, crisp sound out of my laptop.

The included the audio increasing in level  every time I started an application that used audio (Hulu, Netflix) or a flash video on youtube until I turned it back down and all the Maxxaudio settings were missing in the Dell sound manager (or the Sound Manager wouldn't even load on reboot.I tried manually uninstalling the Realtek audio driver from Device Manager and reinstalling but that had no effect. After communicating with Tech support I downloaded the most current audio driver package for Windows 10 from the Dell support page for each PC and ran the appropriate one on each system. The package completely uninstalls the driver and reinstalls it and the Maxxaudio software.Now audio is working correctly on both systems and all the Maxxaudio functionality has returned, except EQ presets can only be accessed from the Speakers/Headphones control panel in the Windows' Sound Control Panel (which appears to be some kind of Windows 10 glitch (or "feature"), which hopefully Dell or Microsoft will be fixing in a future audio driver update.

Hello all, I just got Windows 8.1 Pro as a gift from a friend and installed it just a few hours ago, and I noticed that I am having audio problems.

Basically put, it's sort of random when this happens, but it seems to happen when sounds play rapidly, as letting a audio que play it's part will play with no popping nosies, here is an example of me showing this by using the sound that plays when you change audio:
Vocaroo | Voice message

The first 10 seconds are me playing the sound slow, with no popping. Then the sound starts popping when I change volume rapidly.

I also checked DPC Latency Checker and everything is running smoothly:

I have all the latest drivers installed, and this happens with with no drivers. I just can't seem to figure out what the issue is here.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I've tried disabling drivers, removing the USB Keyboard and Mouse, as well as setting the audio to CD Quality.

Thanks in Advance to the person who could help me with this.

What type of speaker system are you using ? Monitor with HDMI, check video card settings ? Could be conflicting driver, possibly Video card. Also mattering to speakers used, check for loose connections, something could be disturbing speakers.

Lots of reasons for popping and stuttering. Integrated card or PCI Slot Card?

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.

When I install Windows 7 64 bit, they have a MS driver for my HD audio, I am wondering if I should install the Realtek drivers provided by Gigabyte? tia BTW, sound seems to work fine with MS driver.

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.

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).

Basically I've uninstalled the above.... I didn't realise I needed it in order to be able to play my Windows Media Player and iTunes files
I've gone to their website and tried to download it/install it again, but its not having any of it and I just can't seem to work out what's wrong! I've gone to the 'Restore' section under 'Accessories' in my control panel (by advice given on a website), but it comes up saying it's unable to.

I've been trying to fathom out the problem for near enough 3 hours now....and I really don't know where to go from here.

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!

Hi,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.7023", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.6954" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)?  Thanks. (confused now) @@

A:Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

I only installed audio driver ver. 6.0.1.6798 which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. 6.0.1.7027). Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

My computer's audio suddenly stopped working. The last thing I did before the audio stopped working was uninstall/reinstall the NCH Debut Video Recording Software and when it prompted me to restart to allow the changes to take effect, I did not. Instead I continued recording more videos.

I think something somewhere messed up my system and I don't know how or where I'd start fixing it.

Realtek is the manufacturer/developer and I have the installer for my chipset, I already uninstalled/reinstalled several times but that does not seem to fix what's wrong.

Still in the device manager, there is no entry for Realtek sound driver, all that is under the Audio seem like generic Microsoft programs that have question marks next to them..

Here are the technical specifications of my computer. I also included links to screenshots of the error messages I receive.

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.

We accidentally deleted the Realtek Audio Driver from our ASUS Transformer Book. So, we now have no sound on our computer. We have tried going to ASUS Support website, which seems to have no help for us. We have also tried several sites to find a new download for this Audio Driver. Any suggestions or help is welcome. We are a bit weary of downloading new things, as we recently got a virus on our computer that we can't seem to get rid of. So, something safe and secure is preferred. Thanks!

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...

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.
