Q: Confused about Realtek Audio Drivers

Hey all,

I have an Asrock Pro4 Z77 with ALC892, running Win 8 64bit Pro.
So I wanted to install new drivers for this audio device and downloaded the R2.70 drivers from Realtek.com and installed them without a hitch.
However, when I went to the Asrock website and clicked on my mobo I saw there's another driver version for my ALC892; ver6699.
Since these 2 drivers have different version formats, I'm wondering which one is newer, the R2.70 or the 6699??

Also, while googling I noticed there are several versions (station-drivers has 6818, Intel has 6804, others 6702, etc.). Are any of these fit for my mobo? Since they have higher version numbers than the 6699 one on the Asrock website, I guess they're newer?

Thanks in advance,

John

Preferred Solution: Confused about Realtek Audio Drivers

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.)

A: Confused about Realtek Audio Drivers

The "preferred" drivers are the ones from your PC or motherboard vendor, and in this case ASRock. I have one PC with an ASRock Z77 Professional Fatal1ty motherboard. I'm using the drivers supplied by ASRock and everything works perfectly for me. Same way with my other new build PC using a Gigabyte motherboard -I'm using the Gigabyte supplied RealTek driver.

Most PC or motherboard vendors supply drivers that are customized for their hardware. The "generic" drivers from the sound chip manufacturers may or may not work properly and/or fully.

Hello All!!

I have seen similar threads here but my problem is slightly different.
I have ASUS P4S8X-MX which have built in audio of Realtek AC'97 .
I am using Windows XP SP2 for quite a time and everything was fine unless i tried to install an updated driver for my sound. After updating, i got Code 10 error , device cannot start.
I uninstalled the drivers, Restart my PC and then installed my previous version of drivers.
Everything was fine and i can see volume icon in task bar. But when i tried playing an audio file there wasn't any sound. I clicked volume icon to raise it but it was disabled.
I double click it to open Mixer .. there are only 3 options (normally it use to have lot ..wave,speaker,etc..) Now it has only Wave , SW Synth, CD Player.. and No recording device.

I did try re-installing the drivers again and again but no LUCK..

I tried using Drivers Sweeper to remove the tracks .. doing that in Safe Mode and then again Installed Old drivers. It all go well but in the end its same situation with sound disabled.

I don't want to reinstall my Windows , is there any way to fix it ?

One thing i noticed is every time I install drivers the sound manager shows up at task bar but in moments it disappears while the soundman.exe is running in Processes and I can't find it in Control Panel as well (where it use to be) .


Its been 8 hours since I am struggling with that. But No LUCK!

Hi muazzam

Is best to upgrade to SP3 (if only because MS has dropped support for SP2) but can start, for now, looking at your problem while you continue running with SP2

Let's start with these initial steps
1) List any Problem Devices

Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
2) Generate and attach a DirectX report

click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
Notice progress in lower left window corner
When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the report. (If you don't see icon you may need to first click Go Advanced)
3) If there were no Problem Devices (step 1 above) then also check on your Windows Audio service if Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic

I'll have a look and we can take it from there

I find it very very helpful!
I makes the sound so much better in my opinion.

Because you can set the EQ, to rock, pop, powerful, ect.

I have a problem with realtek audio drivers. Somehow with realtek drivers there is no way to access the enhancements in audio devices, they are allways on. This makes everything sound like super compressed trash. Only way to turn the enhancements off was to revert back to the original microsoft drivers and then turn off the enhancements. Now HP support wants to automatically update my drivers to the realtek ones, the ones that have the enhancements on all the time and make all audio on the computer sound like crap. Nice job Realtek and HP. Hope you get your drivers fixed soon because with the realtek drivers the audio is unusable!

A:Realtek HD Audio Drivers R2.19

If you're not experiencing any problems with the current driver then no. Realtek is one of the more "generic" brands of sound adapter, which is used in a wide variety of systems. To make it a little easier, look at the change log for each driver to see exactly what that version is targeting to fix or change and then rule out if the driver gets a download. Of course the perfect solution is to disable the onboard sound and get yourself a good dedicated sound card

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.

I just switched from Windows XP Pro to Vista 64-bit Home Premium a few days ago. Since the change I can no longer get all of my audio to work. My headphone jac seems fine because I can plug my headphones in and hear sound or if I plug my speakers into the headphone jac I can also hear sound through them. I've checked and make sure that nothing is muted and checked to make sure every device is "enabled". My microphone with my headset doesn't work either now.

My only suggestions would be to first go back into Device manager, click on View and enable hidden devices and re-check for red/yellow flags. Then expand the sound tree again, right-click on the Realtek HD audio device and un-install the driver. Then re-boot.

Then go into the Realtek Audio Manager and reset to default settings.

These are the only drivers I've had trouble with, and I was wondering if someone could give me directions on exactly how to install the drivers. No one else seems to have had trouble installing them, so I must be doing something wrong.

To easily install, go to device manager first. Then right click the Realtek audio, choose uninstall and also check the box to delete the driver.

This saves you a reboot in the process to install. When you run the installer, it won't demand a reboot before actually installing the driver.

Are these drivers from ASUS, for your motherboard? or did you get the drivers somewhere else.

That may not be the issue with the mic static, although its a place to start.

Do a System Restore back to a date PRIOR to trying to install the new drivers. That will give you a "fresh start". Try installing them again. Install them "Run as Administrator" and see if that helps.

I bought an MSI K9A2GM

http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1436&maincat_no=1

I had problems in Vista x64 with the onboard audio, namely even though I installed the drivers manually and it registered correctly on rebooting the system; later on it will randomly loose them. What happens is I'll reboot, normally Windows would play audio during this process, nada. Then when I do enter into Windows I see the New Hardware Found icon in the system tray and it begins reinstalling the RealTek audio drivers I'd already had?!

It's done this abunch of times but not just in Vista x64, in XP x32! I was amazed when I saw the same thing happening to the audio on XP, I couldn't fathom what would cause Windows to randomly reinstall audio drivers as if they'd never been installed.

Could this be damage to the onboard audio chipset? Pretty strange if it is since the audio does work once it's been installed. But the problem is whenever it does this all the settings are lost so I need to change all the volume controls again.

It's really very weird and I'm torn between thinking the mobo is the culprit to some unknown factor with the software.

Help!

What's even more bizarre is that it's totally random, it just happens or doesn't. There's no real way of causing it to occur!

My moniter's audio works though(nivida driver). So I tried reinstalling the drivers from realtek's site, gigabyte's site(my motherboard), and even cnet's version. All these downloads bring up their install screen and tell.me restart but their are no.changes to where they supposedly were installed , so the drivers weren't installed. Also this may not matter but when they install they extract the files, are these files supposed to go.to my program files? Sorry for the run on sentences.

Depending on the version of Realtek driver you are installing
The first time you install the driver, it uninstalls the older driver.
Then when you reboot, you must again run the driver install software.

I am installing a new Win 7 build on my new-build PC. I have a question...

My Asus P6X58D-E motherboard has onboard Realtek HD audio, for which one would expect to install the Realtek HD drivers. I just installed my nVidia graphics card driver (before installing the sound drivers) and the latest beta gives you the option to install or not install the "nVidia HD Audio driver".

Now, I will want to use audio over HDMI sometimes to output from my PC to my TV via HDMI - so I opted to install the nVidia HD Audio driver. My question is: do I also install the Realtek HD audio drivers? There are currently 4 "NVIDIA High Definition Audio" items showing up in device manager, plus one separate "High Definition Audio Device".

Any advice? Do the Realtek drivers offer much benefit over the built in Win 7 drivers? Any issues with conflicts if the nVidia and Realtek drivers are installed together?

Thanks.

A:Realtek HD Audio Driver AND nVidia HD drivers?

My ASUS P7P55D-E PRO has both installed.
It appears on mine the Nvidia is for graphics card output for HDMI, built in monitor speakers, etc. from the graphics card.
The onboard audio is for the motherboard audio outputs which also would include front panel in/outputs if you have them on the case and wired to mobo.

So you need both if using now or in the future.

Also Realtek Hd drivers are not installing on my pc. I am currently using VIA drivers. Both my motherboard and cabinet's front panel supports HD Audio. I tried re installing the drivers and also tried removing graphic cards hd audio drivers but nothing helped me. Also checked the device manager. Please help me! and thanx for reading

A:Help needed in HD Audio and installing Realtek drivers.

First on the drivers. If you have VIA sound chip then you need VIA drivers. If you have RealTek sound chip then you need the RealTek drivers. According to Gigabyte this motherboard had RealTek audio.

I would suspect a wiring problem in your HD audio connection, if you only hear one side (assuming you are inserting the connector properly). Also with the AC97 issue, that also suggests a wiring or case headphone jack problem.

Do you get proper audio if you connect the headphones to the GREEN speaker jack on the rear? If you do that also suggests a problem with the front panel assembly or wiring.

One comment, I see you have Windows 7 64 bit. With only 4GB of RAM the 64 bit is not doing anything for you and in fact is hurting you as the 64 bit OS requires more memory than the 32 bit version.

well, first of all, i have read all of the threads related to microphone problems and i havent found mine.

i have bought a new computer and here are the details:
Windows XP SP2
Intel pentium Dual core 2.GHz
2.00GB ram
I have turned all my audio hardware connections in my back rears (My columns, my headphones and my microphone)
When i plugged my microphone, it detected as Mic IN and it goes for INPUT connections:
(Image 1 is attached...)
Sorry, but im portuguese^^ And i just put some english stuff to understand =)

(Image 2 is attached...)

The problem is: When i talk to someone in any program (MSN,Ventrilo,etc....) that person/people listens to everything instead of my voice.
I'm going to be more clear...the person that im talking to in any voice chat program, listens to: -Every music/sounds that i do in my computer (ex: deleting file to trash sounds, even music is going in windows media player, the sounds when i click in my foulders,etc...)
-Listens to himself, i mean, when he talks, he is listenning to his own voice.
And when i talk, he listen really quiet.

Thanx in advance^^

It sounds like your .wav out is being redirected to your recording line, instead of the microphone. Try this:


Open Volume Control (Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> Volume Control)
Switch to "Record" mode (Options -> Properties -> Adjust Volume For; select Recording, make sure Microphone is checked, then click "ok")
Select "Microphone"
Test your apps

Hopefully this'll help...

Ok so I've had this problem before but now it doesn't seem to want to be fixed.

Windows Update installed Realtek audio drivers, which effectively disabled my sound altogether. Great. So I went looking for a fix. Apparently that fix is to download the Realtek '97 drivers, and install them, after uninstalling my previous driver. So I do that, but during the setup for the driver windows says it cannot verify the author blah blah blah, what's new? The problem is, when I click install anyway, it pauses for a minute or so and prompts me again.. I went through this little runaround about six times before I gave up. Any ideas?
 

A:Solved: Vista and Realtek audio drivers...

Run the exe as administrator and it could get through more likely.

Anyways. Go to motherboard/computer(if it's a factory-built box) manufacturer site and download latest audio drivers, not just any Realtek AC97 drivers some random person on teh intrawebs links to you. Then do the above.

I recently installed my Creative sound card (with 5.1 support) on a motherboard that already has onboard audio.

I knew there would be a problem so I tried a couple of different approaches but nothing worked so far.

Going into the BIOS, I was able to disable the realtek 97 thing located in there. I didn't uninstall the realtek 97 driver though in add/remove programs. From there I installed the creative sound drivers with a cd I received.

I got no sound from doing that. I went into the Realtek console program once booted and I can do a sound test and hear noise from each speaker though, but if I go to listen to an mp3 for example, I hear no sound.

What steps should I take to play music through my better creative soundcard? Thanks!

I've got all the patches and fixes that were available until Mai 07.
I'am using a clean install (Windows Xp Sp2 )and i cannot find a way to install the audio drivers.
It just cannot recognise the on board audio chip. and as a result ofcourse i have no audio.

I've tried with the supplied cd, by going to Asrock's site and in Realtek's site and downloading the drivers.
even i've set the bios value of the on board audio to on ,but nothing.
Here you can see an image of the message i get when i try to install using the supplied CD:

I really hope there is some kind of solution.

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.
Thanks in advance.

I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows XP w/SP3. Everything has gone smoothly, however XP will not recognize the fact that I have installed the proper drivers. I also get/got any error every time I try to uninstall one of the audio drivers I get this message. Warning "Removed Realtek Audio driver Failure!" So, to recap, Windows doesn't see/find any audio device, thus no system sound even though the drivers are installed and are the same from the last time I had them.

Hi, I recently upgraded my Yoga 2 Pro to Windows 10 and was excited to try Cortana but unfortunately I could not get it to recognize my voice. It turns out that the microphone level with the Windows 10 Realtek High Definition Audio drivers is abismally low. This also causes a problem with Skype and Google Hangouts. I have tried every driver I could find (Realtek.tw, Microsoft Updates catalog server, etc) and none of them resolved the problem. I also tried the "generic" High Definition Audio driver and that also did not work. Has anyone else experieced this problem and if so, has anyone found a solution?Thanks.

Hello guys,

I got a computer running Windows XP (SP3) with Intel motherboard (D915GEV). I currently have working sounds but I cannot use the "Stereo Mix" function to record what I hear through the speakers. I only get a short static noise every couple of seconds.

Looking in Add/Remove Programs I see these two sound drivers:
*High Definition Audio Driver Package - KB888111 (probably responsible for the working sounds)
*Realtek High Definition Audio Driver (that I see no evidence of being installed apart from the existence of Realtek folder inside "Program Files".

This is what I see in Device Manager menu (only the Microsoft UAA driver appears, no Realtek whatsoever):
Image - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting

Plus, in the past the PC used to have AC'97 driver installed as well but I unistalled it months ago.
I tried to remove the Realtek driver but I get this annoying error:
Image - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting
I also get the same error whenever I try to launch a newer version of Realtek HD Audio driver installer, or even execute the AC'97 driver installer.

I created another (second) admin account and the uninstallation worked as it should, but back to my current account it is still present under Add/Remove Programs.

Is my Registry corrupted? Or is this about User permissions not set right?
Thank you

A:Error uninstalling/installing Realtek audio drivers

The Microsoft driver showed Realtek at the end. So you uninstalled the Microsoft/Realtek driver that was downloaded from Windows Update automatically. And the original AC97 Reatek driver is still on your computer. To reinstall it, download it from the Intel Website: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...ng&ProdId=1674

Now I don't know where to get microsoft bus driver from, or which version to install. If someone could help me with this it would be much appreciated.

HI,
I have audacity for audio recording. I bought a headphone with mike. Intel mother board sound card which i have been using in windows xp, is not working in windows 7. When i Installed win7, it auto detected the HD audio drivers from Microsoft and updated to win 7. There is no problem in audio playback, but only in recording. I plugged in the pink jacket at the rear for mike, but the recording tab shows that in front jack. I do not have audio jacks in my front panel. How come this?
I went to Realtek and downloaded their specific drivers from this link and it install but windows alert compatibility of these drivers , by saying that it has no signature alert. If i install despite warning, it installs and somehow show. But, the microsoft sound icon still remains in the tray and it only has the sound meter control. If i click realtek nothing happens. How to solve this problem ?
I have one pink, one green and another blue jack at the back and nothing in front. Pl help

A:Realtek audio drivers (intel motherboard) does not work for win 7,

Hi,
And why the mike jack is shown in front instead of its usual plugged in position at the rear of the computer

I have problem with the realtek audio drivers, which was supplied by the vendor intel. INtel totally stopped support for this product at their web site. The peculiar problem is when i downloaded the authors drivers for vista, Which they say support win 7 also, the windows shows compatibility alert and if i click on for the online solution, it goes to the same page from where i downloaded the drivers.
It is a curse to have the intel mother board to have the xp version driver and now they would not support. Hell to them. Now even Intel interactive utility, when clicked, show that i do not have intel desk top board alert.Funny is int it?. Moreover if i download their offline utility, they show, the mother board details as intel desktop.
So, really what is the solution that would work for me?
If i just installed and reboot, the win7 os auto detects and update the drivers for sound, invariably microsoft HD audio drivers. When i insert the mike in Pink jack at rear, it shows, in front.

When i plug the mike at the rear of the PC, the Microsoft recording device tab show it as if i plugged in front. I do not have any jack . how to change this to the rear position.
When i was using Realtek, there was no problem. How to disable in Microsoft HD recording devices tab.

Just like the title says, I don't want the realtek audio drivers as it completely messes with my audio and also doesn't correctly switch when i plug in headphones for example.
It also doesn't allow for the 'speaker fill' enhancement to be used when playing stereo content through surround sound.

Windows itself does a far better job as opposed to realtek.

Every time i uninstall realtek it automatically gets reinstalled.

Sorry Microsoft, you don't know best.

Hi.

I have been working on a Dell Inspiron 531S and am unable to get the video, and now audio, drivers loaded and working correctly. Here?s the deal:

According to the Dell tag# info online, this cpu uses either the onboard Nvidia nforce 6150SE n430 video card or an ATI 1300 Pro. There is no external video card so the Nvidia should be right. This is confirmed by programs like HWinfo32. However, someone did install ATI catalyst software at some earlier point.

At first, only the video card driver was not loaded properly and so Vista (Home Premium 32-bit) was in VGA-compatible mode. I tried to load NVIDIA Nforce 258.96 WHQL drivers for Vista 32-bit, which completed without errors. Upon rebooting, though, I could see in Device Manager that the drivers didn?t take. I have also tried Dell?s recommended R166208 (an executable that loads Nvidia?s MCP61 ver.A01 drivers) and no matter what I do, Device Manager says I now have an ?unknown device? or a VGA-compatible display adapter. Unloading and reinstalling did not help. I noticed SP2 was not loaded so tried installing it to see if that would help. It loaded no problem, but then I saw (as another update) a Realtek audio driver update. I let it load and now have no audio.

I have tried both Dell?s recommended Realtek driver (R180772, which is for the ALC888 HD audio device and loads Realtek?s R1.85 audio drivers) and a newer R2.51 version for Vista that I got from Realtek?s site. Both install ... Read more

I bought a 27" monitor, keyboard and Logitech 5.1 Surround Sound System for my laptop; the only thing I can't get to work are my 5.1 Surround sound speakers.

5.1 requires 3 audio ports (as you probably know) but only two of mine work; consequently only either the rear speakers, front speakers or middle speaker can work at the same time. (It only likes to use one port at a time due to the current issue, it's either 2.1 or 5.1, not halfway) My third audio port is a mic port, but I've heard that using Realtek HD Audio Manager you can retask this port to act as an audio output port.

However after formatting my laptop months ago I have the Realtek drivers but not the manager, I can't find any downloads for the manager on the internet, they all appear to be driver only.
IMPORTANT: my soundcard is meant to support 5.1; when I go into device manger and sound properties it says so.
Thanks for reading, is there anything I can do? Or can I only use two speakers?

Thanks, I have a two years old Dell Studio 1745. When I go into control panel, "uninstall programmes" I can see "RealTek HD Audio Driver" which I downloaded from the realtek site, but it clearly said "Driver Only". I need the manager I think, but I don't know where to get it.

Thanks a lot in advance.
