RealTek/Windows 20khz Cut Off

Q: RealTek/Windows 20khz Cut Off

I have previously on a different PC recorded the stereo mix in Audacity, whilst playing a CD and would get the full frequency range of the CD. On my current PC I now get a 20khz cut off, despite changing the settings (the sample rate and bit despth) on the playback and recording devices in Windows and also in Audacity. Does anyone know why this would be, and if there is any way of correcting it?

A:Windows Realtek Audio Popping Problems (Realtek ALC662)

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?

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've been trying to figure out my problem for months and months now. I even contacted Realtek but have no luck getting a reply back.

The sound and all works perfect. It's just when I try to record sound from the sound card from my computer for MSN voice clips. It doesn't detect any sound? - I have tried everything from settings to updating drivers. Updating drivers just cause my recording to not have "Stereo Mix" anymore. Also when I'm mastering a song or something it sometimes get a popping sound. I'm still wondering to this day what is the problem? Did Realtek make a crappy onboard card which can't function perfectly on the 64bit system and now avoiding it?

Anyone know what is the go?

A:Can't install driver for Realtek Realtek ALC660/861.

Win XP drivers are not compatible with Vista/Win7/Win8. Some audio functions are handled differently in later Windows versions and the reason XP drivers will not work, or work properly.

If you can't find a driver that will work with that Foxconn motherboard you will have to install a separate PCI (or PCIeX1) sound card that is compatible.

Where did you download the drivers from?
What is the Full model # of your Sony Vaio E series laptop? (eg)

Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager any devices with Yellow Flags need to have drivers installed.
Go to the Sony Drivers site Support for VAIO? Laptop & Computer : Sony India Type in or find your model# and Choose your version of Windows (eg) 64 bit or 32 bit and download the Chipset and the Wireless LAN driver and any other drivers you need from the Device Manager.

Hi and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you have Realtek onboard audio there would be no problem to install the Realtek drivers.

You also can always revert back to the Windows drivers by uninstalling the Realtek ones, restart and let Windows load the standard drivers.

IF it's available in your specific versions, go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound/Sound. In the Sound Panel click on the "Recording" tab. If the System Mixer is shown, Right Click on it and Select "Set as default device". If it is NOT shown, RIGHT click in an empty space on the panel and then LEFT click on "Show Disabled Devices". If this does not show the System Mixer it means the System Mixer is not available in your RealTek driver. Check with the PC or motherboard vendor to see if there is an updated driver.

Hi, my Acer machine came pre-bundled with Windows Vista, i used it for a year and then came to XP SP3, which i used until a week ago when i did a clean install of windows 7 ultimate.

Now i am having issues with Windows 7 and realtek. Whenever i play ANY kind of sound on my computer it makes a buzz/ fuzzy noise alongside the sound being played.

i have tried:

re-installing driver and software from realtek website
updating BIOS
but still my issue persists.
NOTE that i can play music when i uninstall the realtek driver. it is buzz free but it is however at low sound and low quality.

Need any more details? Please ask.

i have attached a dxdiag report and a recording of a tune being played (only 91.5 KB) so you can understand what i am talking about.

Any help would be appreciated greatly.

I think I have found a solution to this.

I recently had problems my self.

First you have to install this, from Intel: Intel® Desktop Board D910GLDW? Audio: Realtek* ALCxxx Driver

Second, install the latest drivers from Realtek, R2.22. I uploaded the zip file to filefront, as their ftp server is running by mouse power. Download File

I hope it will work. for you. I had a lot of trouble finding the solution. Everything has to do with Intel's high definition codec that for some reason Realtek choose not to include in their driver packages.


Let me know how it goes!

and instal K-Lite Codec Pack

nothing more and my audio are fixed for now

Not sure what the dealio is but if anyone has had success with this update let me know.

I have a Gigabyte EP45-DS3R with RTL8111C chipset.

I reverted to drivers with a date of 2/26/08, version 7.2.1127.2008 but may check with Realtek directly soon to see what they have.

Anyway, Updated my driver from the Gigabyte mobo website and all is good now ... so far! Driver date 7/30/2009 and version 7.5.730.2009 ... now lets see how TF2 works.

A:Realtek Hd Device problem on my Windows 7.

According to the HP site, they do not support Vista or Win 7, only XP and Win 2000. As you need a Vista/Win 7 specific driver, there may not be any available. We see this on the Dell forum on older systems that are not supported and in most cases the user is out of luck with the built in sound. You could try using an external USB sound device that is Vista/Win 7 compatible - probably your only hope.

A:Realtek HD problem after installing Windows 7

Try looking at this thread.

It might help although I know you are using Windows 7.

It at least covers a few different possible problems it could be.

It worked the first time I installed Windows 7, now it doesn't work at all. I tried uninstalling the driver and installing it again and it still didn't work.

A:Realtek AC 97 Dosen't Play With Windows 7

I notice that under sound card in your specs you have listed Realtek High Definition Audio Driver. That would actually preclude Realtek AC97 Drivers from working. I am curious, what model computer do you have or if you built it yourself, what components does it have? It would help in troubleshooting this. If you're not sure, you can use HWInfo32 from

Additionally, is this Windows 7 32 or 64-bit and what specific errors are you getting? Also, are you downloading the drivers directly from the Realtek website or from your computer manufacturer's website?

I am hearing nothing but pops and clicks in my audio. I have looked all ove this forum, found some solutions, installed all of the latest Realtek audio drivers, un-installed, re-installed, rebooted, updated BIOS and all that, and nothing has been working. Any ideas? Also, I can't seem to get Windows to install the latest Realtec AC'97 codecs. My computer keeps telling me that the vendor is unidentified, and when I try to force install, the installer just asks me the same question over and over again. Thanks all!

From the website of Gigabyte, we can tell the specifications of your mobo:

1. The audio compenent of the Gigabyte MA790GP-UD4H (rev.1.0) is the ALC889a.
We should install the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver but not the
Realtec AC'97 Driver to enable your ALC889a work.
You can refer this to the Gigabyte's download center for your mobo:

2. The newest Realtek HD Driver is v. 2.26, you can download it from the official site of the Realtek:
(You are advised to google a better place to download, every time when
the Realtek releases a new driver, their officila site shoud be just paralyzed.......)

3. I downloaded the manual of your mobo, and from page 88 to 95, there is some explanation of the configuration for the sound system of your mobo.

The above is just my imagination, perhaps it helps not, but I believe you will find the answer soon enough here in Windows 7 Forum!! Good luck.

A:Realtek hd audio problem in windows 7

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.

I have a Realtek HDA ALC883 audio chip.

I have looked at many posts, and saw that many people with Realtek cards have no 5.1 audio on Windows Vista and 7.

- My Headphones port is also my SPDIF port
- I have internal speakers that switch off whenever something goes into the port
- When I plug in Optical or Headphones, it says Analog Headphones, which is weird because I plugged in Optical and expect Digital..
- Digital is a black circle in my Realtek CPL
- I have no speaker fill option

Any assistance?

A:Realtek - No audio above Stereo 2.0 on Windows 7

Here's a post from Vistax64, it might be of assistance:

I had a whole reply typed out but it seems to have disappeared, strange, anyways I'll try and recall what I said. To get 5.1 sound over spdif (Dolby Digital / DTS) you need to enable exclusive mode on your sound card. Outputting 5.1 sound requires exclusive access for the application outputting the sound. Any other application that tries to produce sound while another application is in exlcusive mode will be denied. 5.1 audio cannot be mixed, it 1 stream only. So to get 5.1 sound you will need something like ac3filter to do the passthrough. PCM audio is 2 channel and can be mixed which is why you only see the stereo option in control panel from your screen shot. Also when you use spdif passthrough (5.1) you will not be able to control the volume through your PC, the receiver will have to do that.

If the content you are playing is only 2 channel you are better off setting your receiver to virtual surround (every receiver calls it something different) and have it simulate 5.1

Another quote:

i solved my problem, and it was staring me right in the face.

after spending many many hours trying to find a solution to this problem, and searching every blog and tech forum i could, i eventually did the following.

uninstalled all sound drivers, and codecs, then booted machine in safe mode and used a driver removal software to check that all drivers were infact gone (software found a few items still remaining in registry and system folders) rebooted machine, and installed R1.95 drivers. pretty basic so far.

i then installed ac3 filter AC3Filter and settup so that ac3 uses spdif pass through.
installed media player classic x64 version
(for some reason when i use vlc and setup to use spdif sound is laggy, jumpy, echoee, or plays ok for a few seconds the gap then plays for a few seconds then gap) [rather annoying]

then went back to digital properties and adjusted my output to 24bit 48Hz

and vola problem solved for me.

i think that because i was trying to use 24bit 96Hz output my amp would only see this as stereo.

so basically check your output sample rate and see if your amp/ digital reciever can infact decode the sample rate you have it set your sound card to output.

Rest of thread:

AC3 Filter:

Let us know if you need assistance.

I'm currently running Windows XP and it doesn't have any problem with the network(realtek Lan). I never ever install Driver for Realtek Lan, I only install Realtek Audio driver which using XP. But Win7 seems to install Lan driver by itself. And when I try to access my network in Win7, things hangup, only way is to hard reset(restart). I tried to uninstall that driver also but then I could not access my network. I also tried latest driver for the same, but when installing it hang. Can anybody tell me how to overcome this problem. By the way I have Win7 Enterprice(30 Days trial).

Just finishing a Windows 7 install (from Windows 8) and have a single driver missing that I can see on the web for the life of me!

Within the Device Manager / Other Devices / the 'Network Controller' is shown as missing. I am using a Samsung NP355V5C-A06UK laptop made October 2012 which originally has W8 installed as the OS.

Can anyone find the correct one please as apparently I cant!

edit; sorry, should have sad that the only reason I assume it is a Realtek was because that was what was in the search box when
I tried to look for a driver update, so I 'assumed' it used to be the right one before the install?

If there are no Vista or Win 7 drivers that will work, your only other option is to use a different Win 7 compatible sound card. This is what most of the Dell users are reporting on the Dell users forum, for older XP systems that have been upgraded to Vista/Windows 7 that are not supported by Dell (drivers).

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.

Is there a solution for the lack of good drivers for the l502x with windows 10 audio? I had to use task manager to prevent the Realtek drivers from loading at startup otherwise the machine never goes into sleep. I see the Realtek site has R2.79 but I don't know if that will address the messed up Equalizer and driver's in W10

A:XPS L502X- Windows 10 Realtek drivers solution?

Hello. Have you tried installing the driver that used to work for you, before you installed the audio-unfriendly Win10, using compatibility mode? If not, it might be worth a try if you feel you need to have Win10 on that model.
First remove all Realtek drivers that are in the system now. Go into the Device Manager and expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section. Right click on the Realtek and select to uninstall. Put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software, and then ok. Reboot the laptop and go back to the Device Manager and check again for a Realtek driver. Keep uninstalling & rebooting until Realtek no longer appears under Sound...Controllers and "High Definition Audio Device" appears in its place. "High Definition Audio Device" is the name of the Windows native driver. Download the Win7 64-bit or the Win8 32/64-bit Realtek driver, whichever that worked before.

1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win7 or Win8.

Uninstall, not delete. Yes you can remove it, but Windows Media Player does not play Real Audio files, it supports pretty much all other audio formats. Real Audio has file extension .ra or .rm and it is not very common or popular these days.

Hey there, just upgraded from Windows XP SP2 to Windows 7 Ultimate.

So far there have been a few kinks here or there that have needed working out and i've gotten them all taken care of with the exception of one; I have no sound!

I listed my system specs in my profile as best as i could find, and i have a link to my motherboard specs right here: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.

I updated my drivers from here: Realtek

Made sure to download the Vista/Windows 7 one.

Umm, can't think of anything else at the moment, going to try and get some sleep, will check back tomorrow. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to shout them out, i'm fresh out of ideas.

A:No Sound, Realtek AC'97, Windows 7, ASUS P4S800D-X

ROFLMFAO I solved the problem and it was so simple... Yet, VERY unusual.

I was looking at the playback settings with some music playing see screenshot:

And i noticed that the computer was reading that sound was actually playing because the green bar was moving.

So i thought maybe it was my speakers, so i unplugged my speakers and plugged in headphones. Nothing, so i thought just for ****s i would plug my headphoens into the different slots, first one, nothing, then i plugged them into the MICROPHONE slot and BAM max volume Dragonforce Fury of the Storm straight into my brain, it was both painful and wonderful, and i laughed out loud for a good long while.
Well, problem solved, plugged speakers into the microphone spot and TA-DA! Sound!

Now i'm off to play some Champions Online till my eyes bleed.

I have already done a search on this forum to see if anyone has been having a similar problem and many do, but so far no suggestions have helped me......

My problem is I have an Acer 6920G laptop running Windows 8 (and 7 on another drive) and no matter which Realtek audio drivers I use, I cannot get 5.1 digital output sound to my Creative Inspire 5.1 system. I have the correct optical cable (which worked fine on Windows 7) and I am currently using Realtek v2.70 HD Audio drivers. When I select the digital output, I can only select properties and not configuration (which is greyed out) and therefore this is no option to setup a 5.1 speaker configuration.

If I use the internal speakers built-in to the laptop (for 5.1 sound) I have no problems, but not with the external speakers.

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.

Hey everyone!So I've been using windows 10 for a while now, but I've come across a really annoying issue recently. My laptop (y50) initiated an automated windows update a few days ago and now all sound effects are gone, and my realtek application claims that my current driver is only compatible with windows vista. I've tried to reinstall the driver from Realtek's site, but apparently the installer automatically picks vista for me. Any idea how to solve this?

A:Y50 - wrong realtek driver installed after windows...

Hi Faradin  ,
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
Windows would automatically update the drivers with its wn native drivers as it was a default on Windows. 
Every updates done are assigned with a restore date  that user may use to go back via system restore. 
And to prevent this from happening again as much as we hope , to disable driver update from windows and ways to uninstall such update similar to this guide .
Other option is to go to device manager and rihjt click on the audio driver properties to rollback driver aside from reinstalling drivers from the support site . 
Update us how it goes.

When I install a micro-wifi-usb 802.11n with "Realtek RTL8188CU" on a old notebook with Windows XP I get maximum 1.5 to 2Mbits/s. Though installed on a newer notebook with Windows 7 I get 30Mbits/s.

Other wifi-usb, Cisco Linksys WUSB100v2 does work on that Windows XP machine at 30Mbit/s, but the dongle is much larger
The router Cisco WRT320N is just 5meters away and I always have excellent signal strength.

I tried some other drivers without any luck. On the site of Realtek I don't find any driver except with some letter diverence at the end of RTL8188CU, which I also tried.

Does anyone have an idea why or where to find the correct driver for XP?


A:Realtek RTL8188CU wireless USB 802.11n slow on windows XP

Check to see what Wireless Mode the adapter is set to use. May be set for B only.

Click Advanced tab.
Click on Wireless Mode to highlight.
The Mode setting will show in the box at right.

S/PDIF -> Sony/Panasonic Digital Interface is to connect to an external receiver via optical cable.

Make sure you have your speakers plugged in properly and select Speakers as your default output, unless you actually have the PC connected to an external receiver via optical cable.

Hi all
I've been following various threads for a while re Realtek Hi Def drivers. And even went to Samsung Support Centre. ALL to no avail. I had to keep re installing the 64 bit driver every half an hour no matter what was suggested. ( the samsung guy to me to save all my files then re-install the whole chebang after he had unsuccessfully tried to fix.)
I'm no wizz kid but finally worked out what was the cause. SOMETHING was obviously conflicting so all I did was uninstall the AVG and SAMSUNG "tweek" programs and HEY PRESTO all is sweet and running like a dream ( though I STILL would like to wipe the lot and do a clean install of Windows seven.)
Just Saying.
Thankyou for all the posts that I read on the subject.

Welcome to SF daldec.
Understand just because you have a 5.1 speaker set up the main sound will always be from the stereo pair and only when you have a substantial surround effect or sound will the others play. If you have a 5.1 surround movie with lots of action or a game with the same please test using it and let us know how that works/sounds. Oh I also trust you've made the 5.1 audio connections properly?

Good evening, folks!

I've recently bought an ASUS notebook, model K45a. After a few days, I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, but I didn't like it, so I formatted it and reinstalled Windows 7 64 bits.

I've installed all the preferred drivers from the asus website, but there is no digital output! I got the newest Realtek Audio driver, and no digital output option available.

I've been to Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Manage sound devices and right-clicked to select "show disabled devices" and "show disconnected devices" (sorry if it's not 100% accurate, I'm using a portuguese Windows version and trying to translate it accordingly) and nothing.

All I get is the speakers, no digital option, which means no 5.1 signal through both spdif or hdmi to my home theater. When I open Realtek HD Manager, it only displays the analog jacks.

Any thoughts on this?

Thank you!

I transported my PC from The Netherlands to Argentina in a suitcase.
When I arrived I noticed that the processor's cooler was loose but so far the computer was in one piece.
In order to place the cooler again and protecting the mobo I had to take apart the mobo.
When I try my pc everything was working but suddenly I noticed that Windows 7 doesn't detect anymore the "Speaker" interface, only the Realtek Digital Output.
Did I forget some cable to plug (don't think so)? lose cooler damaged mobo?
It is a Gigabyte EP-45 UD3, It's a self-assembled pc.
Already tried latest drivers and erasing it and re-detecting it in the device manager.

Anything is possible with the loose cooler but I doubt that it damages the sound chip since you have the RealTek Digital.

A:Cannot find Realtek HD Audio Manager in Windows 7

Someone else had a similar issue in this sub-forum within the last week. I'm not sure if he resolved it.

Try drivers from other sources--motherboard manufacturer, Realtek directly, or whatever.

Go through uninstall/reinstall via Device Manager as well as through the download directly.

It may be that the driver you are using does not include the HD Audio Manager. It can take a ridiculous amount of fiddling and you may or may not succeed.

2 firewalls and 2 anitviruses is over kill and not reccomended. You only need to run 1 of each. It is highly possible you are having conflicts between your anitviruses and them scanning in the background, thus using up recourses and causing lag. Pick one and uninstall the others. then see if your still experinencing the same problem

Is the Integrated Audio (or may be labeled HD Audio) in the BIOS enabled?

Also, when you first installed Win 7, many motherboards require "chipset drivers" and the chipset drivers usually need to be installed BEFORE installing sound drivers. One of the main things the chipset drivers do is define (identify) all the devices on the motherboard. Basically it's (1) Install OS (2) Install chipset drivers (3) Install device drivers.

A:Windows Update Breaks RealTek Audio

I can't say I've seen this or seen it "a lot" and I've been working this forum for a while and worked the Dell forum for 10 years.

I have RealTek on both a Gigabyte Z77 motherboard (with an i7 3770 CPU) and an ASUS Z77 motherboard (with an i5 3550 CPU) and the sound has worked OK on both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8/8.1 as both systems have dual boot. Both systems are up to date with Windows updates.

I can't say about all of your software and Windows 8.1. I do know you need the latest version of Aconis, older versions do not work with Win 8 (I used to use Acronis and went to Macrium Reflect). I have Office 2003 and its not supposed to work on Win 8/8.1 but it works OK. I have the latest Nero and it is no problem. I have a (home) recording studio and all my software (I use Sonar) and all my hardware devices work the same in 'Win 7 and Win 8.

Back to your sound problem. The first suggestion is to reinstall the Intel motherboard chipset drivers. The chipset drivers identify (define) all the devices on the motherboard. They are key to the on-board audio working correctly, although other problems can also cause sound device problems. But, I would, as a first step, reinstall the chipset drivers.

A:Windows 7 Ult.x64 w/ Realtek ALC665 StereoMix NOT WORKING!

In most cases the PC Vendor's drivers are the preferred drivers. Many times the drivers are customized by the PC vendor for their hardware. I don't know about Alienware, but other Dell's, such as the XPS or Inspiron desktop lines need Dell sound drivers.

The rumor is just that, a rumor and not substantiated as many PC's with RealTek, including two desktops and one laptop that I have with RealTek all have the Stereo Mix (System Mixer).

On some Dell's, as they were delivered the Stereo Mix was disabled. But, all that had to be done was go into the Sound Panel/Recording section. RIGHT click on a blank space in that panel and then click to show disabled and disconnected devices. If Stereo Mix is there it will now be displayed and you can enable it and make it the default recording device.

If the Dell supplied driver does not have Stereo Mix, you can try the generic RealTek drivers however they have a notice to get the drivers from the PC vendor.

You could post this on the special Alienware forum section on the Dell Community and see if someone there has an answer. Dell Alienware Club

Windows out Realtek HD Audio AL A codec Ive recently Realtek HD Audio cuts out sporadically in Windows 7? installed Win x and initially installed the latest drivers from the GB website Everything runs fine but i have a sound problem My comp is hooked up Realtek HD Audio cuts out sporadically in Windows 7? to Sony AV receiver speaker setup via Optical cable In the Realtek software i have enabled Dolby Digital Live to take advantage of it as every other option in software only uses speakers stereo The problem is this every so often every minute or so but gaps can be longer or shorter the sound cuts off for a second when playing anything with sound i e games web videos mp s This happens randomly and there doesn t seem to be a pattern to it When the sound cuts out the AV receiver seems to loose the signal i e it clicks from being in Dolby to nothing then back again like its being lost at the source The strange thing is when i disable the Dolby Digital Live in the Realtek software and just use speakers the sound doesnt cut out Obviously this isnt ideal as i want sound in games and movies that support it Ive tried various drivers from the actual Realtek website and Gigabyte there have been numerous revisions over the past weeks and the problem persists The AV receiver is working fine as i have various other devices working with it DVD Sky etc Also the optical port on the mobo amp and the Realtek chip itself seem to be working correctly because i have been using them when switching between a dual install of Win XP on separate partition on HD and the current Win and in XP there is no problem It seems like a driver problem but i was just wondering if anyone had any pearls of wisdom Or do i just need to wait for Gigabyte Realtek to sort it out Cheers Buz nbsp

My computer is a Toshiba Satellite C -B and I have Windows I only bought the laptop weeks ago I have not been able to get my computer to hear anything from my external device when I use the mic headphone combo jack I have an adapter plugged in that turns my conductor mm end into a conductor mm end I have set everything up using HD Realtek and can see the icon for the mic-in on my list of enabled recording devices However when I play media the sound bar doesnt move Ive checked with my recording programs and they cant hear the mic-in either I've work. mic) mic-in Realtek wont (external Windows HD 8 checked and HD Realtek mic-in (external mic) wont work. Windows 8 apparently all my drivers and software is up to date I even re-downloaded the recording device drivers and nothing happened Is there a way I can download a different driver for these devices I have seen loads of other forums where people had the same issue with their HD Realtek but nobody was able to help them Is there anything I can do aside from buying a mm to USB adapter that will make my computer hear the mic in Thanks

Do you have the "Stereo Mix" set as the default Recording Device? If some other device, such as an internal mic is set as default no other device can be used in most systems. Setting the Default Recording Device as Stereo Mix then any recording device will be heard.

The big problem is compatibility with Vista/Windows 7. HP does not have sound drivers for Vista or Windows 7, thus it is not supported. Non vendor (non HP) drivers may or may not work.

I used to do a lot of support on the Dell users forum and there were Dell's that were the same way - XP systems that Dell did not support for Vista/Windows 7. In those cases users were installing separate PCI sound cards that were Windows 7 compatible. You may have to do the same thing.

Vista/Windows 7 handles some audio functions differently than XP and the reason XP drivers are not compatible.
