Realtek HD Audio Manager + 2.1 speakers - not working right

Q: Realtek HD Audio Manager + 2.1 speakers - not working right

I just got a brand new Klipsch Promedia 2.1 system for my laptop.

These speakers have amazing ratings, and my friends who have had them before said the ones they had sounded amazing for them, and yet they, like me, notice the following problem in mine.

The bass is great, but for some reason my system seems too bassy. Like I know I can turn down the subwoofer, but it's as if all the low/bassy sounds are always drowning out the higher/vocals, which always seem to be a bit dulled down.

I have a Lenovo Y560p laptop with Realtek HD Audio. I was thinking perhaps I have this sound problem because it doesn't let me select 2.1 for my settings, and it's stuck on "stereo". I've tried downloading and installing drivers from Realtek's website.

I had my computer for a few months now, and not long ago, i recently found out people can hear through my speakers, it is at random also,i can be using the mic, and all of a sudden people would hear what i'm hearing, as in if i was listening to music, people would hear the music and not my mic, i play steam games alot, and sometimes when i test my mic, my mic would be muted, but it would echo the last sound that my speakers heard, its hard to explain, but its just that people can hear what i can at random, and its starting to bug me, i know i'm not in detail, because its hard to explain this, but if anyone has a vague idea of what i'm saying, please help

A:Realtek HD audio manager - hearing through speakers

Yes, if you mean if what you're hearing through the headphone is transmitted via the mic.

In Vista, go to control panel > sounds > recording tab. right click > show disabled devices. Now, right click on mic and enable. Then, right click on Stereo mix and disable. That should do it.

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager ''Mute Rear Speakers'' HELP

My RealTek HD manager has a "Device Advanced Settings" option which allows how the headphone/speakers act. Yours does not appear to have this option. Some Vendors include this and others do not, and using the generic RealTek sound drivers instead of the PC Vendor (or motherboard on a custom built system) drivers does not always work or work correctly.

Using USB audio devices is a separate function and the reason it worked with the USB device.

A:Realtek Audio HD Manager does not auto-detect speakers

Apparently a problem with the AMD drivers. I assume you are connecting via HDMI to the TV.
Roll back the AMD drivers to the previous version and see if that fixes it.

When you are using HDMI, the PC sound, e.g. RealTek is not being used. The sound is generate in the Video Card.

When an HDMI cable is plugged in the Video Card detects that and sets a flag for Windows that HDMI is connected and Windows will automatically make the HDMI the Default Playback device.

A:cant get klipsch 5.1 speakers to fully work on asus with realtek hd audio manager

I could be way off, but the Realtek audio software usually gangs the sub into the speakers. So, 5.1 = 6 speaker config. 7.1 = 8 speaker config.

Not sure how you have things wired back/panel and in the software, but perhaps trying the 6 speaker setting may fix things.. unless it's for Dolby surround only (which expects your speakers to do the crossover/encoding).

I just bought a MSI Z77-G43 motherboard and I did a clean installation of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and when it started up the audio was already working which is normal. Then I installed the basic drivers (chipset,lan,audio).(Ok just so you know the situation)

Now the volume changes on the new Realtek software are working, but the EQ presets, Graphic EQ, Environment settings, Voice Cancellation and Karaoke settings are not working. So basically the whole "Sound Effects" tab is not doing anything to the sound when being adjusted.

What could the problem be here ?

Hey, I'm a new member here with a problem!

I have a pair of Skullcandy Crushers with an arguably great built-in mic that turn on with a press of a button. However I built a new computer a few days ago and installed the latest version of the ASUS Realtek HD Audio manager, and while the audio on the headphones work, the mic refuses to work and isn't even recognized on programs like Skype and Hangouts.

I have tried the front two ports and tinkered with the settings and nothing has worked as of now, please help ASAP!

Yeah thats because Skullcandys aren't really built for computers, just iPhone & Android. I had the same issue with my Skullcandy headphones and decided to buy a legit for PC headset. Sorry you spent your money on them!

So, the title says it all. The speakers of my Acer Predator 15 (Predator G9-591) are not working and taking a look at the HD Audio Manager says that the headphones jack is plugged in, even though there is nothing plugged in. I already used high pressure air cleaner, but that didn't work. I still think there is something wrong with the port.

I re-installed my drivers (based on the drivers from the Acer site), so I have no idea what else to do.

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 a generic driver, which might not be as good, or even cause problems.

Try the R275 version on the RealTek site. Its the latest version and will work on your PC. When you run the Realtek installation the first thing it will do is uninstall the current version you have installed and then restart the PC. After the restart it will continue and install the R275 version. This is the version I have on all my PC's for both Win 7 64 bit and Win 8 64 bit.

Help. I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 64bit (on my HP Vista 32 machine). Life is grand! My problems started when I tried to listen to the microphone input through my speakers. The front microphone inputs did not work so I downlaed the Realtek HD Audio Drivers (recently updated) from the realtek site. The inputs now work and I can record from the microphone through the Sound Recorder app in Accessories but can not hear the microphone through the speakers while I am recording. After searching the web I noticed a lot of chatter about setting things up in the Realtek HD Audio Manager. This app does not show up in my control panel. Does anyone know where I can get it (if I really need it). The Realtek site only has the driver download (not the manager). Am I missing something, am I confused, or both?

Hi all,

I'd be grateful for any advice to my problem....

Last month I bought a new PC, a Dell XPS 8500 with an Intel Core i7-3770 processor. The PC has onboard audio (Realtek High Definition Audio).

I didn't buy new speakers as I have a perfectly usable set of Creative 6.1 speakers.

My problem is that although my computer plays Windows event sounds through all the speakers, applications such as iTunes only emit sound through the front pair.

I have googled the problem and as a result have configured the Realtek to use 7.1 audio but without the side pair.

Also, I have disabled the Realtek driver and have reloaded by asking Windows to select the best available.

But still the problem persists.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,


A:No audio except front speakers (Dell, Realtek Audio)

First, for proper operation you must use the Dell supplied sound driver. Non-Dell will either not work or install or will not work properly, and that includes the basic function Windows installed HD Audio Codec.

6.1 is an oddball speaker configuration for current technology systems, its either 2.1, 5.1 or 7.1.

I used to do a lot of support on the Dell users forum (community) and recall that certain applications will only play audio through "stereo" speakers only. My experience on the Dell forum (I had over 37,000 posts and am still registered) also is the reason I note the Dell supplied sound driver.

You could also post on the Dell community Desktop hardware section and one of the user experts there may have more suggestions.

I just went through this with another user and a Gigabyte motherboard. Never really resolved it as the user didn't want to do a complete reinstall. Everything else had been done and the user still had the problem.

However, lets try on yours.

First thing, go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek sound and then LEFT click "Uninstall". DO NOT uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound.

If that does not fix it, uninstall the RealTek in the device manager but ALSO Uninstall the drivers. Then restart and when Windows starts, it will install the sound but it should be with the generic Windows "High Definition Audio Driver". See if the sound works with this configuration. If it does, it sounds like the RealTek driver you have may be corrupt. Download the R2.75 High Definition Codecs driver direct from RealTek and see how that works.

When I plug in my headphones to the back of my computer where my onboard soundcard is located, it seems that realtek detects my headphones as speakers, and as a consequence, the volume is way too low.

When connected to the front of my computer however, realtek detects my headphones as headphones, and the sound is much louder, however for practical reasons I prefer to have my headphones plugged into the back of computer, but the low volume is a bit of a problem.

Hi there, I've noticed that out of the blue, when I play any sound through the Dell speakers on my system, the vocals and some of the music sounds like it's echoing or very distant. I've played the same music through a pair of USB headphones and it sounds fine so I can only deduce that it's a problem with either the speakers or the sounds card/driver.

Hello Techspot,

I have just built a new PC using the GA-P55-UD3P motherboard, I have tried almost everything to get my Microphone working correctly, I have been over many threads and possible solutions through various websites, nothing seems to work!

Problem: My mic is plugged into the rear pink socket, If I leave the "Rear Pink" option muted I have no microphone sound whatsoever, yet if I unmute the "Rear Pink" option the sound going into my microphone comes directly out of my speakers rather than being recorded/used correctly on communication/recording software..
note: the windows/realtek audio options all have "microphone" greyed out.. the only way to control my microphones mute/volume/boost is through the "pink rear" option!

I hope this makes sense.

It shouldn't make any difference but im using the default software which was included with the motherboard!

Thankyou for your time,

To start Hi I am a first time poster to sevenforums and registered here because of the wealth of information threaded out over the years Well done to all Right now down to the serious I as many others have experienced the sadness of upgrading to Windows only to find that my rear surround sound speakers do not work I have - Checked conectivity of rear speakers - replugged to let HD Audio acknowledge and give options to what speakers are involved - swapped plugs to different colour ports - changed from to and diddled the side speakers settings - changed volume levels as per speaker - reconfigured registry - UPDATED the Realtek Audio drivers and Creative xtreme when soundcard inserted drivers as of Sept Audio/Creative No Realtek HD Soundcard rear Xtreme speakers. the list of to do's is tasking so will stop at none of the suggestions either worked or there was front speaker sound rear sound available The apparent behaviour that I experienced is channels even though da dah da dah has been inputed reinserted and reconfigured into either the Realtek onboard Sound Manager or the Creative Xtreme soundcard Audio Manager when the card is inserted I am a very experienced systems Realtek HD Audio/Creative Xtreme Soundcard No rear speakers. builder by profession but was gobb smacked by this little gem Why does Surround Realtek HD Audio/Creative Xtreme Soundcard No rear speakers. Sound Speakers Realtek HD Audio/Creative Xtreme Soundcard No rear speakers. Logitech work with XP with onboard Audio and with Soundcard straight out of the gates Why does the sound test from Windows sound off all the channels correctly and yet when playing music or videos does it revert to when same songs and videos on xp audio were surround Why does it appear that Realtek and Creative are aware of the problem and even though there are updates it still persists Gob smacked yes so I tested my system hardware and speaker setup and decided to Dual Boot the system with Windows and XP on it The result being that my surround sound was back with XP dead with W It relieved me no end that I was not going crazy and that the Windows audio is screwed somewhere so I conferred with collegues and we are going to test a theory that it may be the CPU make of the board that is - a My system is AMD oriented with Realtek Audio Manager b we will test this weekend with a Intel equivalent exact spec version with VIA Audio Manager Please if someone has an Intel motherboard with Via Audio and have had this problem with the rear speakers please let me know else will continue with the testing

A:Realtek HD Audio/Creative Xtreme Soundcard No rear speakers.

There are some differences in audio between XP and Vista/Win7/Win8. Some audio functions are handled differently.

Not getting full surround sound can happen with some media.

It has nothing to do with having AMD or Intel CPU systems. Its back to the OS, from what I've seen over the years. I used to do a lot of support on the Dell Community forums and sound was a major complaint when Vista came out and users were upgrading from XP to Vista.

Many older Creative (SoundBlaster) hardware are not Win 7 compatible or not fully compatible. Read - vendors want to sell you new hardware.

I probably just ranted and didn't really answer your questions.

As an off subject comment. I see you list 2GB of RAM but have a 64 bit OS. That is self defeating as a 64 bit OS requires more basic memory than a 32 bit OS does and leaves less RAM for programs. The 64 bit doesn't really do anything for you since the main reason to have a 64 bit OS is the ability to address more than 4GB of RAM.

couple of problems seem to be occuring with this programme. firstly the front mic port is highlighted pink even when no mic is connected. is this normal?

mic and headphones work fine but every now and then. in particular if i have speakers switched on it will pop up saying i have either connected or disconnected a device. can this be resolved?

finally, i'm guessing i should keep my drivers up to date. is there anyway i can check if it is the latest version and if not where do i go to get an update? motherboard website or realtek.

thanks in advance

A:realtek HD audio manager

Easiest place for the drivers,

You don't list your motherboard, but I would assume you will need the HD Codec driver and not the AC97 one.

As for you other question you'll have to wait for someone that uses their Realtek onboard sound.

My computer has Realtek HD Audio Manager installed on it as the main audio manager. I have 4 speakers plus a subwoofer, so I set it as 5.1 speakers and unchecked the button for a center speaker in the manager so that it won't make my sub act as a center. However, on the back of my desktop, the jack for the sub is also the jack for the center speaker. So, whenever I listen to my music, it won't use my sub, but if I check the option for having a center speaker, it tries to make my sub act as a center speaker, which makes it sound awful. Can anyone help me?!!

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager

BTW, if this helps, when I plug my iPod into my line in input and have it set to no center speaker, it will use my subwoofer as a subwoofer and not as a subwoofer and a center.

My computer uses Realtek's HD Audio Manager, and I have 2 front speakers, 2 rear speakers, and a subwoofer. So, I set the manager to 5.1 and unchecked the box labeled center speaker to indicate that I don't have one. However, the center and subwoofer output use the same jack, and my subwoofer receives no signal when I uncheck the center speaker. If I leave the center speaker box checked, it tries to make my sub act as a center speaker, making my music and videos sound horrible. If I plug my iPod in and have the center speaker option unchecked, then it will use my sub. I run Windows Vista x64 and I do not use an external sound card.

If I'm understanding what you're trying to say, it sounds like your headphone port is not recognizing that the headphones have been plugged in. I would first try plugging in another set of headphones to see if the problem is the port or the headphones.

Also, did your headphones come with a CD, driver, or any other installation help? What about an instruction booklet from the manufacturer? Can you call the manufacturer's tech support to ask for help?

Also, have you checked your IDT Audio settings? Go to the Control Panel and open the IDT Audio Control Panel? Under "Speakers and Dual Headphones? go to the Playback section and then click on Settings. Check: 'Set as default.'

I recently purchased the new Logitech G headset The headset came with the default x mm inputs However it also came with a USB adapter After downloading the Logitech software for the product I Realtek Problem Manager Audio HD was told that you need to use the USB adapter in order to access most of the headset s features notably the surround sound So I switched to the USB adapter but when I did the left earphone stopped Realtek HD Audio Manager Problem putting sound out and the right earphone barely put out sound I took the USB adapter out and plugged the x mm inputs in and I was prompted by a Realtek HD Audio Manager popup As I always do if I plug any headset in that has a list of different devices I might be using I select headset and click on The sound then returned to normal coming out of both ears It appears in order for the sound to come out of both my earphones and at regular volumes and quality I need to click that quot Headphones quot option or any option on that popup The issue is the popup is not quot popped up quot if I use the USB adapter It is like my sound card driver is having an issue with the USB over the x mm input It seems like a Realtek HD Audio Manager problem not a Logitech problem Any thoughts help Thanks nbsp

I haven't changed any thing since my most recent re-installation, but when I put my computer to sleep mode for about half an hour and then woke it up again, there it was! The HD Audio Manager was back in my task bar and plugging in headphones muted my speakers as they should.

Where can you download the realtek hd audio manager? It doesn't seem to be included in the driver package you find at the site, and there aren't any other downloads. I need EQ so badly.

My motherboard is a P7P55D if that's any help.

This is all I got:

A:Where can you download the realtek hd audio manager?

Hello Quano,

From the specs of your motherboard at the link you posted, you have a VIA VT1828S 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC chip instead, and not a Realtek HD audio chip.

You can get the latest VIA VT1828S series audio driver version v8700a_20100923 at the link below.

Hello All I have an alienware X with windows and I tried hooking my surround sound system to it But for some reason when I set it up as surround sound only my front speakers are working yet when I actually test it using the realtek driver all the speakers work After days of research I found out that I needed the updated driver for realtek which has additional settings to fix the surround sound conflict So I downloaded the driver installed it and now for some reason when I try to open the audio manager it does not open I checked my control panel and it shows that the driver is installed I also have the icon on the bottom left But when I try clicking it it doesnt open SO please if anyone can help me out Id really appreciate And if not (Does Manager open) R2.67 Realtek Audio you tell me to wait for the next update for driver can you please give me a guestimate when it should come out Thanks and I hope this thread helps others in need like myself -Andres

A:Realtek R2.67 Audio Manager (Does not open)

Best option would be to post it on the special users forum section Dell has setup just for Alienware users. There are people there that are familiar with the Alienware systems. Alienware Club - Dell Community

One note, we have found on the Dell users forum that in most cases you must use the Dell supplied sound drivers. Non Dell drivers in most cases either do not work or do not work correctly. I do a lot of hardware support on the Dell forum, but not in the Alienware section. I am listed as one of the Dell "Rockstars" as I have been giving user helping user support since 2002.

Went into my Realtek's folder and the only thing in there I found was MaxxAudio..
I think I found the actual Realtek HD Audio Manager but it doesn't open.
If I run it as an administrator, it asks me if I'd like to open it. I hit yes, but nothing comes up.

It runs as a process in my task manager. I'm not sure if this is just part of the drivers or the actual application for configuration.

Went to the site and installed the newest drivers. Still the same problem.

My Realtek folder and the file I was referring to:

I just want to set up my two audio outputs on my PC to be listed as separate devices. All over the internet are posts saying you can do it through Realtek HD Audio Manager.
That'd be great if I could even use it.

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager won't open.

Not sure if this will help Realtek

Oh and to post pics Emcitement try the snip feature mate it is much easier to use.
Start > type snip ad a window at the top will say Snipping tool > right click > pin to taskbar. When ready with screen you want to capture click on the snip tool the screen will go milky > left click hold down and out line the part of the screen you want (let go of the click) > File > Save as (pick a destination I put mine on desktop) give it a title and OK. When posting use the Manage attachments under the reply window > Browse > desktop > pick the snip you want > upload when the ref disappears > post your reply.

Sounds complicated but it really is easy no mucking around

now iam unable to manage sound through realtek audio manager. please help me...

A:problem with realtek audio manager

If it's present in program files x86, then theoretically, you installed the 32 bit drivers, yeah? Are you running a 64 bit version of Windows 7?

We won't email solutions on this board, you will have to keep us updated here (well, some may, but most of us won't, sorry!)

EDIT: Can you post back your model number, or more info on the unit itself?

So, I have Realtek HD Audio Manager installed, and the latest drivers. My sound is now working fine, but my microphone isn't even being picked up. I don't know what kind of problem this is, but I was looking for help. My motherboard with on-board sound is a ECS Elitegroup GeForce7050m-m. Thanks for the help

A:Realtek HD Audio Manager Problem!

Welcome to Seven Forums Glurft. If you have 2 channel sound, make sure it is set that way. Open Realtek HD Audio Manager, under the Audio I/O tab changed the 6 channel speaker settings to 2 channel. When it's set to 6 channel it uses the mic port (the pink one) as a center speaker and sub output. Also make sure if you are using the pink, back panel connector, that the disable front panel jack detection is checked. This is done through the Connector settings which is the little icon in top left hand corner of the window.

Hi well if it is still on the system you will see it in the control panel. If not check in add remove programs to see if it's there, if it is there maybe it got disabled from startup. Go to start where is says start search type in msconfig and push enter, next choose the startup tab do you see it listed there if so and there is no check mark beside it put a check mark and reboot it will then start.

This issue has been on here before but I am having problems with the answer due to my lack of knowledge. I have Realtek HD Audio Manager with Windows 7 (32 bit OS), and I understand that I can download the latest version from as the equalizer settings on the current one sound poor (eg vocal, classical, pop, etc), but the update has much better tweaking controls. However when I open the link and look at the choices for Windows 7 (32 bit OS) I am confused as to which to choose. I don't understand the options. Please could someone guide me here. Many thanks.
