Skullcandy Crusher mic not working with ASUS Realtek HD Audio Manager

Q: Skullcandy Crusher mic not working with ASUS Realtek HD Audio Manager

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!

I have a year old desktop with which I am using a 7.1 speaker set. I have had the speaker system for some years and it has always worked ok. Now here's the problem - the PC has on board sound which has worked fine with my speaker system, playing sound through all speakers but a few months ago it started playing through 2 speakers only even though when I test the speakers through W10 they all work. The change is with the Asus Realtek HD Audio Manager. There is no longer any speaker fill option or sound enhancement options, (other than room correction), such as amphitheatre or concert hall etc. Is there any way I can reverse this so I can get this back or is my only option to buy a 7.1 sound card?

I don't use headphones but you can try:

Right click your speaker icon in the Task Bar and click Open Volume Control and then left click Options, then Properties and select the Mixer device for HD Audio front microphone if it's selected HD audio render.

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 ?

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 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.

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.

A:"Realtek HD Audio Manager has stopped working" at Windows Startup

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.

Download the High Definition Audio Codec R.275 64 bit OS version.

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?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and I have a problem with sound. When I plug my speakers in front panel I have output audio, but in back panel I don't.

My Audio Manager looks like this, but front panel is enabled and back panel is disabled. It does not recognize back (ANALOG) jack.

I tried with settings in this manager but without success, I cheked Control Panel > Sound and followed instructions but still no sound if speakers is in back panel. What to do?

Recently, I started getting problems with my audio on my alienware X51 R2 (I'm on windows 10). After a long time of searching for solutions all over the internet like on forums, I've come to the point where the only possible solution to my problem is using the realtek hd audio manager. The problem is: I can't access it on my alienware device since it is completely replaced by your poor version of it "Alienware Audio" wich does not have any of the options I need. How could I restore the original version of this software or at least disable the alienware audio version?

My Realtek Audio chips in my ASUS motherboard started to play "Chipmunk" music, which I researched and was informed that the Data rate on MP3s was set wrongly, and that I should re-record. (I have just one thousand-odd tracks, so that's not an option).
The other advice was "take out the drivers and device" Which I did.
Then I tried re-installing from the oriignal disc, no go.
Downloaded the latest Realtek driver, 4.22 no go.
Went into regedit and took out some very odd looking Realtek lines which appeared to have calls elswhere, (long strings of 3-4 interlinked addresses). Cleaned up the registry generally.
But nothing will re-establish the Realtek Audio. Windows XP SP3 tells me the device is present, but cannot read the install disc, the downloaded driver fails.
I'm stumped., any suggestions?

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.

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 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.

Hello, I'm having a problem with the audio manager listed above.

Because that audio manager offers things that my current one does not, I tried to install it to my computer. I went through the process, and restarted the computer as the process told me to, however I was unable to successfully install it, and it does not work on my computer. It will not install. can anyone help me with this?

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.

A:Realtek HD Audio Microphone Problems (ASUS MOBO)

I have an asus P5GC-MX, with the same dodgy Realtek HD Audio. I have had the soft microphone issue since the MB was first used.

Today I tried downloading the drivers from Realtek and installing. I also ran the "MicCal.exe" program, as mentioned in the other thread. There seemed to be no effect. I also enabled the "output" microphone control and switched on mic boost. Still nothing.

But then I restarted the pc, and everything works now! Unfortunately I don't know which action fixed it. But keep trying, you will get it!

Regarding the sounds being recorded, you can mute certain sounds using the recording controls in windows mixer. To access these, go to Options -> Properties and change the mixer device to "Realtek HD Audio Input", enable all the controls, and start playing around

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.

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'd first try just reinstalling Realtek using the latest version you find from your system provider or motherboard mfr.

To remove it, first look in Add/Remove programs to see if Realtek listed and remove it there (that should remove applications, control panel applets and drivers). Then check Device Manager and, if still there, uninstall it from there too

The following is what came up. It sure is gorgeous.

I'm not sure if the new color scheme and design is an MSI P67A board exclusive or if all the new P67A boards after the recall have it.

The MSI boards also have a new UEFI BIOS setup as shown here.
MSI P67A-GD65 Intel Socket 1155 Motherboard Performance Review - MSI P67A-GD65 Motherboard UEFI BIOS - Legit Reviews
Since MSI has redone the BIOS setup, the Realtek HD Audio Manager shown below may be an MSI exclusive. The Gigabyte P67 board I had prior to the recall had the usual Realtek HD Audio Manager, most of us are familiar with.

Two things I noticed on the Realtek HD Audio Manager is that when you adjust the EQ settings, small numbers appear. At least you can write down the number for a configuration, if you ever need to reinstall it. It can take the guesswork out of what the last settings were before the reinstall......that is, if you remember to write down the numbers. Also, there are 4 configuration presets that you can save....A, B, C, and D.

I had it working last night, I had speakers hooked up, but I moved the computer to it's primary location, and it delivers sound via HDMI cable. When I went clicked on Realtek, it shows it was blank. It gave a message as to why, I forget what it was.

When I go sound, it shows that's it's working because I can see the green line moving up and down. I've tried connecting audio cables from the computer to the TV, which is what is used for monitor. It still didn't work.

I had did updates since last night, not sure if that had anything to do with it.

I have deleted the sound drivers, and tried to reinstall Realtek HD Audio Manager. The sound driver came back (still no sound). but Realtek HD Audio Manger did not come back. I noticed there were two listing under audio/sound. One had a triangle with an exclamation point in it.

Hi Homer and welcome to Vista Forums

Sorry, but at the moment there are only preset options in the equalizer for the Realtek HD Audio Manager. There is a possibility that this feature might be introduced in a subsequent driver, but I wouldn't hold your breath. All I can suggest is that you keep an eye on the download site just in case a newer driver has this feature.

I have a problem locating my Realtek Hd Audio Manager, I have read through many posts such as updating your drivers, uninstalling then re-installing, restarting your computer, make sure to check my BIOS, check in control panel, things like that.

And in conclusion I think I have 2 possible explanations, the first one is that the current driver (updated) doesn't support the realtek hd audio manager? (I read on someone else's post that he had to rollback/downgrade his drivers for his audio manager to appear.

My last solution is... that I don't even have the Realtek Hd Audio manager chip on my motherboard? Possible Nvidia Hd Audio? Because I have 4 Nvidia Hd Audios, and only 1 Realtek.

A:Realtek Hd Audio Manager missing

You have a RealTek - those HD audio's are from your video card's HDMI/Digital inputs. I've had this happen to me as well. I basically had to remove the drivers and delete the hardware from the device manager. Reboot and let it find the new hardware then install the newest drivers.

A:Problem with realtek hd audio manager

Welcome to SF. Do you see something on the Realtek site here that is worth trying? Note that they highly recommend using the downloads via the mfgr's. site, have you exhausted the downloads available there as well?

Thanks to these forums I got the drivers up to date (realtek HD audio driver) and finally the Realtek Audio Manager appeared on the control panel.
I thought my problem was solved but when I click that shortcut it runs RtHDVCpl.exe but the manager doesn't open.
The process is running but no window opens.

Any idea why that's happening?
Or how I can access the darn thing?

I'm afraid I've gone as far as my searching ability can take me

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.

i had realtek audio manager before my mother board fried. i got it replaced, and i do not have realtek audio manager any more. i went to the realtek site and downloaded a bunch of High Definition Audio Codecs, hoping that it would suddenly appear after the download and install. but no. i looked all over the internet and found that i may need the actual software for the program. once again i search Google to the best of my abilities but could not find it.. anyone know where i can find this software for realtek hd audio manager? would be really nice to have sound coming from more than 1 set of speakers...

A:Realtek audio manager missing

Have you checked at your motherboard maker's web site?

I have a Gigabyte motherboard that uses a Realtek ALC892 chip.

In Device Manager, it appears as "Realtek High Definition Audio".

In Control Panel, I have an applet for "Realtek HD Audio Manager". When the icon is poked, it opens up with a representation of a listening room, with controls for volume, speakers, sound effects, and room correction. I never use it.

Is that what you are looking for? I've never played with it, but I'm reasonably sure I got the driver directly from Gigabyte, where it was shown as "Realtek Azalia ALC892 audio driver". When the driver was installed, the Control Panel applet appeared.

You may require a different driver if you have a different chip or motherboard manufacturer.

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.

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

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.

I use Logitch Z-5500 speakers (two front, one center, two rear, boombox). The optical cable is connected to an ASUS P5K motherboard.

I have the Realtek HD Audio Manager ( At times when I click the tray icon, I see a full panel of options (e.g. Sound Effect, Equalizer, Volume, etc.). But none of the controls do anything at all.

At other times when I click that icon, I only see this message: "You are seeing a blank page because there is no audio devices plugged in the system. To activate GUI please plug an audio device into the system."

I generally use the PLII Music or Movie Effect. Stereo or Stereo 2 only provides sound from the two front speakers.

What is going on? I know I need a 5.1 source (e.g. DVD) for true 5.1 sound, but what is the best setup to use in other situations (e.g. MP3s, YouTube, etc)?

Also in Manage>Device Manager, I see only "High Audio Drivers", it suppose to be mentioned "Realtek Audio drivers" right?

A:No RealTek Audio Manager and Headphone

High Definition Audio Device says the Realtek is NOT installed. High Definition Audio is the generic, basic function, sound driver that Windows installs. This is also probably the reason your headset does not work.

A:Realtek HD audio manager behavior

It is natural if they have been heavily used, or overdriven. What sound cards and sound chips do is burn out or wear out... Might be time to disable what you have, and install a low cost sound card.
For such a setup on a d945gcnl, you have some significant miles on it.
