A:realtek high definition audio and high definition audio device problem

First, the AMD High Definition Audio Device is ONLY for HDMI audio. It has nothing to do with the PC audio (speakers and/or headset).

Are you sure it was a BIOS update? Those are normally not automatic. The BIOS is the heart of the PC and controls the hardware configurations.

The basic Windows installed High Definition Audio Coded/Device is a generic audio driver. It can be installed for the PC audio and/or the HDMI audio. As this is a generic, basic function driver, the correct hardware driver needs to be installed.

Without the actual HP model number, I can't research what actually belongs on your PC. Apparently it is RealTek, but as it isn't functioning properly, or conflicting I still need to research the PC's specs.

I am running XP SP 2 on Intel Motherboard DH55TC, Core i5 CPU. UAA High Definition Audio class driver is resulting in high hardware interrupts that uses upto 10 to 12% of CPU. The interrupts goes away if I uninstall UAA Bus driver through Device Manager. But this also disables RealTek audio driver which means I hear sound no more.

I tried updating the UAA driver to Version 1.0a but still the hardware interrupts wont go away. Please help how to fix this issue.

A:No Sound on PC (Realtek High Definition Audio Driver)

So today i downloaded Assassins Creed 1 and proceeded to install. The installation worked fine and when i click the Assassins Creed Icon on my desktop i get this message:

"Your Sound-Driver is currently used by an other application. Close any application using your Sound-Driver and try again... else you'll not be able to hear and sounds or musics."

I looked in Device manager under the 'Sound' tab and my sound drivers are working fine. I have sound and haven't even had a sound problem since i got this PC. I thought it might have been the download but i downloaded a bunch of different ones and i keep getting the same message. Any help would be amazing. Here are my specs:

Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire V3-571
System type: 64 bit

I don't see how re-installing my sound drivers would fix this problem because everything works fine... so instead of suggesting that lets try something else.

I have a Dell Laptop (Inspiron 5558 Signature Edition) Windows 10.

Recently I turned on my laptop to find a red 'X' on my audio. I tried to fix this by downloading a new driver, but instead of having one 'High Definition Audio Device' and one 'Realtek', I now have two High Definition Audio Devices and the Realtek one is completely gone.

I don't know what Realtek Driver I had before and I don't know how to fix this.

My audio now has an echo and some audio comes out of my speakers rather than my headphones, even when I have my headphones plugged in.

How do I find out what Realtek Audio Driver I had before and how do I replace one of my High Definition Audio Devices with it?

A:Somehow replaced Realtek Driver with High Definition Audio?

Hello EmeraldBlue.

Considering that you have W10 Home 64-Bit you should really have posted this at our sister forum:

However I can tell you that your audio device is Realtek ALC3234, I mean you can of course download the audio driver from Dell Support site:

I recently installed the program, Driver Sweeper, which picked up a problem with my audio driver, Realtek High Definition Audio after my speakers had been making some static sounds while playing audio. After running Driver Sweeper and cleaning the driver I restarted the computer.

When I returned to windows my driver had been uninstalled. Windows ran a troubleshooter when I clicked on the volume controls. Then it automatically installed the same driver back again. My speakers continue to make the same sounds after this and if I run Driver Sweeper again the same thing happens again. I'm not sure whether I should install a different audio driver or something.

Thanks for the help

Hi there,
I have just had to reinstall Win XP home, onto a Sony Vaio VGC104, and everything seemed to go well ... when I checked the 'Device Manager', I saw under 'System Devices', two entries for 'Microsoft UAA Bus driver for high definition audio', one was fine - the other had the yellow warning triangle!. The error message read 'not enough system resources, and to disable one before it could solve the error with the UAA Bus driver etc... '. Firstly, do I need two entries? or how do I get rid of just the error one. Any ideas/help will be just great.
Many thanks

A:conexant high definition audio and intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI

The Conexant HD Audio would be the device that supplies the Stereo Mixer, if Gateway enabled it. Some vendors have not enabled it to avoid DRM (Digital Rights Management) issues. I've seen a couple of Dell's that way.

Have you tried reinstalling the Gateway supplied driver? If not, give that a try first.

Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / NV Series / NV54

If that does not work, unless you can find a compatible Conexant driver somewhere else you may be doomed.

A:Realtek & high definition audio?

You should either "rollback" the drivers to RealTek or reinstall RealTek. Usually, the "High Definition Audio" is a generic driver that Windows (Microsoft) provides. Do not allow Windows to automatically update/install the sound driver (some of the other drivers are OK).

If you want to try the rollback first, to to the Device Manager, and the properties for the sound device. Click the Driver Tab and then Click the Roll Back button.

I'm not exactly sure how it happened but I lost my sound.

I installed the High Def Audio Codecs from the Realtek website and executed that - nothing.
I uninstalled the device and went to add new devices - it found the device, and still didnt work.
The exact description of the problem is -
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.
Theres a ton of things in the sound, video and game controllers that have yellow exclamation marks by them. And I need the sound before I go back to college.

A:RealTek High Definition Audio problems

Each port has it's own use. Check the motherboard User Manual for specifics.

With that said, the "green" port is the standard audio out port. This is where you would connect your speakers or headphones to hear the audio. It is a standard stereo output or in multi-channel mode, the front left/right.

Did the front panel ports ever work? They need to be connected to the proper outputs on the motherboard.

If they have worked in the past and/or they are properly connected, then you most likely have a driver issue. Several of the Realtek chipsets do not work well with Win7, especially 64bit.

I have a new Dell PC that has Realtek High Definition Audio. As best as I can describe it, while watching videos or in a game, it periodically and with no particular intervals of time, will momentarily (no more than a second) pause and I'll hear a buzz. It then carries on as if nothing had happened. There is no rhyme nor reason to when this happens. Any ideas?

A:Realtek High Definition Audio problem

That sounds like what a bad speaker or speaker connection would do. Do you have a headphone you can connect to the headphone jack (or the rear GREEN speaker jack) and see if does it with the headphone? That would help to isolate the problem.

We have also seen audio problems caused by wi-fi or a cell phone or cordless phone close to the PC/speakers.

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.....

A:Realtek High Definition Audio Troubles - Not Detecting Anything

High Definition Audio Device suggests a generic Windows installed sound driver rather than the RealTek driver.

Make sure you are getting the correct driver, either Vista or Windows 7 for 64 bit OS, from the PC or motherboard vendor's site. Windows XP drivers are not compatible. If you get the warning on a valid driver, click the Install anyway and it should install.

Hi all.I upgrade from Window 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 Pro.As part of this upgrade I tried to turn on Cortana so that it would speak to me but all I got was the message to the effect, Cortana may not work with/recognise Realtek audio.As it stands, my voice input is via a desktop microphone which works well with Skype.Here I am totally lost, how/what can I do to get some program that is recognized by Cortana?"Thinking hurts my head that's why I live in West Australia"

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 any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Hello. I just recently updated my Lenovo Y530 Ideapad to Windows 7 Ultimate x64 from Windows Vista Home Premium x64. After I updated my laptop, I went to adjust the sound and I noticed that I had 3 sound devices that all said Speakers. I then went to the Device Manager and saw that under the Sound,video, and game controllers tab that one of the sound drivers said "High Definition Audio Device". Before upgrading to Windows 7, the driver said it was a Realtek driver. I have tried to get back the Realtek driver, however, when it finishes installing I end up with no sound. Is there anyway I can get back my Realtek drivers?

A:Realtek Driver replaced with "High Definition Audio Device"

Download the latest Realtek driver.

Or, you can get the Lenovo older driver, which may be more compatible with your hardware.

ALC887 8-Channel High Definition Audio Very Quiet It was enough to fill my modest sized room with loud clear sound and rich base when listening to music I had them connected to the audio jack on my ASUS M A L LE using the Realtek audio described in the title At some point I chose to reinstall Windows I installed and updated all the drivers etc and set the speakers up the same way as before Only this time the audio was around of the volume it was previously with volume up full In games it's barely audible at all unless I put my ear to one of the speakers I first tried using different Realtek drivers including the ones shipped with the motherboard the latest on the ASUS web site as well as the latest from Realtek's site All of these drivers yield the same results I also tried tweaking many settings in Windows and with Realtek's audio manager Nothing seems to raise the volume So I decided to test the speakers out without the Realtek audio Plugging the jack directly into my monitor and using an AMD HDMI Driver Surprisingly the speakers were now much much louder However without the use of the sound card the audio became quite distorted when the volume or base was raised And in general just wasn't as good quality I'd like to get back the loud clear sound and deep base I had originally but I do not know what else to try Any theories suggestions help or advise would be greatly appreciated

What do you show in the Device Manager, for sound devices? You should only have two, the AMD HDMI and the RealTek. If you have the generic Windows installed HD Audio Codec, uninstall that, then restart the PC and see if that changes anything.

Assuming you have a Win 7 (or Vista) RealTek driver installed.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the RealTek entry and then LEFT click "uninstall". DO NOT check the box to also uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. If there were some type of corruption between RealTek and Windows this will fix it.

What is the Problem know please can anyone help me ?

A:5.1 Sound doesnt work at Realtek High Definition Audio Device

Do you have the VIA HD Audio Deck installed with your sound driver. It may be in the control panel, systray or not installed. It should be compatible with your realtek onboard audio. I usually have more luck using this to configure my speaker setup than windows as in may versions it supports jack switching.

I think my question is this how do I set up VSX- a Pioneer AVR in Control Panel Sound and Hardware Sound so that its driver is Realtek HD Audio and not the Intel Display Audio one In Device Manager under Sound Video and game controllers I have two sound card drivers Realtek High Definition and Intel Display Audio I don't understand Audio Realtek Definition and High Intel Display Audio how Realtek High Definition Audio drivers work in relation to the Intel Display Audio drivers If I go to Control Panel Hardware and Sound Sound then Playback there are four options as you can see from the picture below I'm guessing that if I choose Realtek High Definition Audio and Intel Display Audio the receiver as my default device that I'm using the Intel Display Audio drivers and any of the other three options that I'm using the Realtek drivers Is this correct If the receiver is the default device everything works fine I Realtek High Definition Audio and Intel Display Audio get sound from sites like cnn com and I can listen to internet radio etc However if Speakers are the default device I don't get sound Is this normal If so what's the reason for having Realtek If it isn't normal will I notice a difference if I use the Realtek drivers If I would see hear a difference how do I get them to work

A:Realtek High Definition Audio and Intel Display Audio

The RealTek is for the regular PC sound. The Intel Display Audio is for HDMI sound. If an HDMI cable is plugged in Windows will automatically default to the HDMI as the "default playback device". If you have an HDMI cable plugged in and want the PC sound you must manually change the playback device. If you want both HDMI and PC audio, you can't have that as Windows will only allow one default audio playback device.

Does this answer the question?

My computer quit playing sound over the weekend. I used the microsoft troubleshooter starting off basic checking speaker connections. I tried playing different sounds from numerous other files and I could not get any of those audio functions to work either. The more I got into the troubleshooting I found of my device manager that the UAA bus driver for high defintion audio could not start and it gave me a code 10. Is this something I'll have to take my computer back to the manufactuer or something I can fix myself. It sounds pretty major to me.

A:Uaa Bus Driver For High Definition Audio

You may be able to fix it yourself by reloading the drivers.

If the audio card is built in to your motherboard the drivers will be on the cd that came with it.

Go to the device manager (control panel/system/hardware/device manager) and double click on the UAA bus driver.

That will open a box. Click on the driver tab, and then click on "update driver"

When it gives you a choice where Windows will look for it, choose your cd.
Put the cd in the drive and have it install the driver.

If it is a seperate audio card it should have come with a cd too, so use that one instead.

You can also download updated drivers from the manufacturer's sites, either the motherboard if the audio is onboard, or whatever manufacture made the sound card if it is seperate.

A:Via High Definition Audio Driver for Win8


I have tried my best for someone else and they report back the same issue, even after some hacks I tried.

My advice is to make SURE you are installing with Administrator privileges. That means that if you are installing by device manager, then make sure your current account is as Admin. If you are installing by running a .exe (even on Admin account), then right click that and choose "Run as Administrator".

In the meantime, I will check on your driver and make it so Windows 8 can install it. Maybe you will have better luck. I shall return....

Are you running Windows 8 x64 or x86?

...and your post and your system specs say different motherboards. Which is correct?

You could try installing from ASUS page:

Install the audio drivers. The HP site should have a driver package for the audio chipset.

The nVidia HD audio that you are referring to is the audio chipset for the HDMI port. So you should likely see at least two audio chipsets listed in Device Manager.

The driver says the problem code is 0000000A
driver version is 6.1.7601.17514
Manufactur is Microsoft and not Realtek

Hi NG1,
As you have an Asus, use the inbuilt Asus updater, it will check all your drivers and tell you what you need, and the option to install.

A:“SigmaTel High Definition Audio CODEC” driver for “Windows 7 64bits”,

SigmaTel was purchased by IDT about 5 years ago and rebranded IDT. Some older SigmaTel devices will not work with the newer IDT drivers.

Do a internet search for IDT drivers, but no guarantee they will work.

The generic Windows installed basic function HD Audio Codec drivers, if installed may be the best you can do.

That is the default Windows audio driver, and I don't think it can be uninstalled. Best is to not worry about it and just install the Realtek driver.

Uninstall the Realtek driver or do a system restore to before you installed it.

I just bought a Gateway laptop (Win 7 64-bits) with a Realtek high definition. I listen a lot to classical music and I am disappointed with the sound quality of the card.

I listen the music with a good Seinheiser headphone. The problem is not the headphone because I switched back and forth between the new laptop and a 6-years old Compaq desktop and the desktop sounds much better. On both computers, I have the equalizers set as flat and no audio effects.

The problem on the laptop is that the sound sounds "muffed", with no treble and no color. I checked the drivers and they are the latest.

I am pretty sure that this is a good quality card and the sound should be good. What should I try?


A:Realtek high definition - bad sound quality

Have you fiddled with the settings in the Realtek HD audio control panel, as shown below?

I'd turn off any special effects or enhancements to begin with.

I just began using Realtek myself, but have not done any critical listening yet to decide if I like it or not.

I downloaded these drivers:
Sound: (High Definition Audio Codecs)
and now my headphones or mic doesnt work. I can right click on my sound thing in the bottom right, and i can see speakers, headphones, and digital output devices. And when i goto properties of the headphones, then advanced, and test the headphones I can hear sound out of them. But thats the only time I they work.

Its like my computer doesnt recognize when I plug them in anymore, and i dont get that little message saying audio device plugged in. So my computer just keeps putting sound out of the speakers even when my headphones are plugged in.

Any help?

A:Headphones dont work after installing Realtek High Definition Drivers

Was there a specific reason for updating your audio drivers? If not, go into device manager, select your audio driver, click the driver tab and choose roll back. Let it reinstall the previous driver, then reboot and give it another shot.

I was wondering if there was any such program from IDT for High Definition Audio for my computer. The program I am trying to find allows you to adjust (referred to as an equalizer) the sound, for example like the one built-into Windows Media Player, as well as enhance the overall sound (by giving more control over microphones such as boost, etc). On my desktop, there is a similar program called Intel Audio Studio if that helps to describe the program more sufficiently.

My computer is the HP Mini 1000 and it is currently running Windows XP Home. Thanks.

Hi, Here are a couple of thing to check. 1.  Shutdown the notebook.  Tap away at the esc key as soon as you start the notebook to enter the Start-up Menu, then select f10 to enter the Bios Menu. Under the System configuration tab, expand 'Built in Device Options' and check that both 'Audio Device' & 'External Speakers' are both selected - save any change before exiting. 2,  If the bios shows the above options are already checked, try the following. Download the IDT HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the IDT device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the IDT installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

I'm trying to disable: 'MS UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio' in Task Manager, but every time I restart, the disablement gets cancelled and its back on again.

Have also tried uninstalling the driver, but it gets reinstalled when Windows next starts up.

Is there any way I can stop this happening?

It seems disabling this driver could be the answer to the high CPU readings I have been getting when installing ATI graphics driver.

A:Disabling High Definition Audio

Rather then disable it, why not update the audio driver from your computer manufacturers support/download drivers site.
If you want to disable the driver, go to Device Manager and open Sound, Video and Game Controllers and right click the driver here and choose Disable.

sorry if this sounds stuiped but what is a 8-channel High Definition Audio?? I have brought a pc with an intrigated 8-channel High Definition Audio soudncard on the mother board but i dunno if i will be able to add some 5.1 Speakers to the pc? Anyway thanks for any help you can give - Adam

A:What is a 8-channel High Definition Audio?

8-channel refers to how many different.... channels... your sound chip can split sound into. Your motherboard allows you to have 8 speakers set up, and each one will function on a separate channel, which means making their own sound appropriate to the music/game/sound effect etc.

Your motherboard also comes with software for controlling the sound chip. In this software you can configure it to work with varios setups, including 5.1 speakers. Just mess around with your settings, and you'll find it in there somewhere.

If you can't find it, tell us what your motherboard is, and someone can help you make the adjustments.

Hi scruffydog420

1) Go to Device Manager and uninstall the IDT item from the Sound... category.
2) Go to Device Manager and uninstall the graphics devices listed in the Display... category.
3) From the Dell Support Website download
-----> the Dell Notebook System Software
-----> the Intel Mobile Chipset Driver
-----> the Sigmatel Audio Driver

Install them in this order:
1) Install the Dell Notebook System Software
2) Reboot
3) Install the Intel Moblile Chipset Driver
4) Reboot
5) Install the Sigmatel Audio Driver
6) Install the Graphics driver that matches your hardware. It will be one of the following =
.....a) Radeon Mobility x1400
.....b) Intel G945GM
.....c) nVidia GeForce Go 7800
.....d) nVidia GeForce Go 7900S

The graphics drivers are on the following Dell webpages:
a) Radeon Mobility x1400
b) Intel G945GM
c) nVidia GeForce Go 7800
d) nVidia GeForce Go 7900S

If you are unsure which graphics device is in your laptop, visit, select Support, select Drivers, and enter the Service Tag number on the sticker on the bottom of your notebook --- it should list the device in your system. Note that you can find any other drivers that you might otherwise be missing there: such as for the network or the touchpad.

That should do it.
Best of luck
