I have the latest Realtek HD Audio Manager installed, but I have this rather wierd issue. Whenever I'm watching any video (music or otherwise) the Audio Manager pops up and keeps saying I plugged and then unplugged a device from the audio jack. The manager keeps saying it's "Headphones", but I haven't done anything.

It doesn't matter how many times I click "OK" it just keeps coming back, saying "a device has been plugged/unplugged" and I have to shut down the window with the video source to get it to stop. I have uninstalled the audio manager then re-installed the latest version form the manufacturer's website and I've also disabled the front IO panel detection thinking it might be something screwed up there, but the behavior continues.

Any ideas and/or suggestions on how to fix this weird behavior would be appreciated.

Also, I went into the HD settings, clicked the little "i" icon and unchecked "Display icon in notification area". This has not helped, either. The manager still pops up whenever I'm watching something and either says I've plugged/unplugged headphones or some speaker (it's usually a rear one).

I had no problem with it, but now for some reason, whenever I plug in my headset/mic, it won't respond like it usually does. Usually it will tell me "an audio devices has been plugged in" or something similar to that, but now it won't respond at all. And the headset itself has no problems because I tried it on my laptop. My speakers will not work either. Nothing works. I didn't even touch any settings that would have caused this. I use the onboard sound card for the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P. Is there any solution to this, or any reason why this happened?

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?

Sorry for bad english

Hello everyone!

I got my new headphones today, but the sound isn't working. I plugged them into the audio jacks, and realtek audio manager recognized them and said that an audio device has been plugged in. The mic is working fine, its just the headphones that don't work.

The headphones aren't muted, "Realtek digital output" is set as the default device (I'm not sure if that's the headphones, my old headphones broke and I haven't had any for a few months now so I don't remember what it was like before). I've tried inserting them into the audio jacks on the back, but that doesn't work either.

Any suggestions?

I'm on Windows 8.1 64 bit if that matters.

A:Realtek audio manager recognizing headphones but no sound?

Huh, I seem to have fixed it myself. I'll post the answer here just in case anyone is as clueless as me!

I was going through all the devices listed under "playback devices". I right clicked on all and looked at the "jack information" section. I found out the Realtek HD Audio 2nd output was the one that was connected to the front audio jack.

When I connected my headphones to the audio jack, when the Realtek audio manager asks you what type of device it is, I had to click "Headphones" instead of "Line In" like I did with my previous headset.
Then you go into playback devices and set the Reaktek HD Audio 2nd output as your default device. If you're using a program like Skype you might have to go into audio settings in the program and change it there as well.

If you don't have the Realtek HD audio 2nd output in your playback devices: Open the Realtek audio manager, and at the top by the close/minimize button click the settings button. Go into options, and tick "Make front and rear output devices play two different audio streams simultaneously".

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.

Since I got my new Alienware X51 with Win7, I have been getting the notifications: "You just plugged a device into the audio jack" and "You just unplugged a device from the audio jack" These notifications repeat over and over and don't stop.

I have tried reinstalling audio drivers, that didn't work. This only occurs after my PC has been running for a few hours. I have turned off the notification completely, but that doesn't change the fact that there is something seriously wrong with my PC. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

What is the status of the RealTek in the Device Manager? Showing an error code? Showing Working OK? In either case, RIGHT click on the entry for the RealTek and then LEFT click "Uninstall" DO NOT check the box to uninstall the drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. This fixes a lot of problems and my fix yours.

Hi there,
Ive been getting this problem for a while now, even after system restoring.
Whenever im running something that requires audio, eg. itunes, ventrilo, youtube video etc a balloon will pop up from 'Realtek HD audio manager' saying a device (my headphones) has been unplugged, it will then say the device has been plugged in again.

It cuts the audio for about a second (very frustrating) and if i am in game, will make me lag also.

It seems to occur more frequently when i am in vent and in game, if more than 2-3 people talk at once it will happen definately.

I have tried reinstalling directX10, playing around inside the Realtek HD audio manager.. but to no prevail.

Where is the problem? What can i do to resolve this?

Thanks, anyone who bothers to read this

A:Realtek HD - balloon says device unplugged - cutting audio constantly!

Hi Woody,

Welcome to the forum,

Check all of your plugs to make sure that they are not damaged or worn, if possible change the cables completely and try another Headset.

Try disabling all of the devices that you are not using (Realtek HD audio manager)
If you right click on one of the devices you will have the option to "show disconnected devices" make sure there is a tick in the box so that these devices will show up.
This might make it easier to troubleshoot.

You gave the example of Headphones as the device that is unplugged if this is the actual case, then start with the headset.

I hope this helps

hi, i just recently ran into this problem. I am running windows XP sp3, and for some reason my realtek audio jack is not recognizing my plugged in headset. it had been working fine a month prior. Sometimes the headphones on my headset work, sometimes when they do, the sound only comes out of one ear. the same story for the mic part, only it rarely works and whenever i am in a voice chat, the person on the other line can hear my audio, but not my voice.
Please help as this is an issue that i have been looking to resolve for a almost a week.
Edit- I was ment to say that i BOUGHT the headset a month prior, and before that i used a standard mic which worked fine.

Could you provide some further information on the actual hardware involved,
is this a desktop or laptop
is it a "major Brand" or "hand built"

Quite often with home builds the actual physical connections are not made or the bios settings can be incorrect you may want to check the bios first to see that the correct options are set anyway as many systems have alternatives

A:Audio Jack Reassignment without Realtek

The correct sound driver would be a first start, as it may include a panel that you can reassign jacks. You list "High Definition Audio Device" which usually suggests all you have is the basic function Windows installed sound drivers.

You didn't fill in the "My System Specs" so we don't know what PC you have. But if its a factory built PC (e.g. Dell, Acer, HP, etc) to to the vendor's site and download the correct sound driver. If no Win 7 driver is listed, but there is a Vista driver, it is fully compatible. If its a custom built, go to the motherboard vendor and download the applicable sound driver.

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.

Hi all,

I've just installed Windows 7 and was very happy to see all the hardware working, even my Realtek HD Audio sound card, except the front jacks.

On windows XP I could solve this by with the Sound Manager that comes with the realtek drivers, and select the "Disable front panel jack detection" check box. Unfortunately, after installing the Vista drivers, I could not start he Sound Manager app beause it said it worked only on Windows Vista.

So, if someone knows a way I could start the manager or how I could set the "Disable front panel jack detection" by modifying the registry, or ofcourse, any other way to make the front jacks work, please help.

A:Realtek Audio Jack Output Assignment Troubleshooting

1. I see you have the "High Definition Audio" as the device type. That suggests that you do not have the RealTek sound driver installed. Instead just the basic function Microsoft/Windows sound driver.

I have RealTek and I have a RealTek HD Audio Manager that will allow SOME (not all) jack assignment changes.

You can only have one default audio playback device and if I understand you correctly, you can't have different devices for different outputs. You can have "Stereo" (2 channel) or 2.1 speaker system that is connected to the Green speaker jack. OR you could have a 5.1 speaker system with the the THREE connections to the PC. But, you can't have one jack for one device or speaker system and another for a different speaker system.

If your sound card is on your motherboard, I'd just suggest getting another motherboard since it's most likely a jack malfunction on your sound card.

I have this on onboard Realtek HD audio card. And no matter if I connect the AC'97 or HD audio adapter to the motherboard, the sound that comes out of the frontjack is cracking. I have no phones or anything the like near my pc, the speakers are turned off and I reinstalled the drivers. Still I have this sound. Any suggestions how to fix it?

Thanks in advance

A:Realtek HD audio - Front jack makes cracking sound

If you really want a better sound output, check if your speaker or headset are plugged tightly.

But you can also lower the sound quality in the settings but this can eliminate the crackling sound. First, close the programs where sound comes out such as media players. Believe me, I had this problem on Realtek in Windows 7 too but I lowered the sound quality to 16 bits 44100 Hz, CD quality and the crackling sound was gone. I posted a screenshot. After you are done with that, refresh the desktop and play an MP3 file and hear if the sound got any better.

But if you really want some better sound, you need to buy a sound card that is fully compatible with Windows 7.

Hello all,

I rercently came with the following problem without any reason:

I have a realtek audio chipset with my mother board.

Since some time, the HD audio drivers keeps on detecting/undetecting a device plugged in my front jack (resulting is sound cutoff, which is more than annoying). But, there is nothing plugged.

If I plug something then, the detection works right.

I'm wondering if it is a software problem, or if there is something wrong with my motherboard or my front jack connector (some kind of shortcut or whatever).

If someone as a solution I would really appreciate.

Thanks a lot in advance !

I cannot uncheck the "reload" option in the realtek driver because I need to have this detection working right.

A:Realtek HD Audio Drivers - Constantly detecting/undetecting front jack

Sounds like a loose or defective jack. No software will "fix" broken hardware. When nothing is in the jack, it's grounded and the chipset ignores or turns off the jack. When you plug something into it, the open ground signals the chipset to detect a device and notify Windows of it's presents. Windows (driver) will then allow you task the jack as necessary.

You don't give any info on your system but some manufactures have spare parts available. Most front panel assemblies are replaceable. Also make sure the front panel connections aren't loose at the motherboard. Be sure to completely power-down the PC and un-plug the power cord before checking wires inside.

A:Realtek HDMI+NVIDIA = no sound+frezze screen using pc rear audio jack

Please clarify, are you using HDMI connection to your display monitor and audio? Or are you using a standard DVI or VGA PC monitor? And, are you using the RealTek PC audio to speakers? Or are you using the HDMI connection to speakers?

If you are using the RealTek, your "Speakers" should be set as the default audio playback device. If you are using HDMI connection (or have an HDMI cable connected to the PC) Windows will automatically default the playback device to HDMI and if you are using the PC's RealTek you will have to manually change the default playback device.

The problem with freezing and buzz with game play is not an "audio" problem. The buzz is just the result of the freezing which is some other PC problem. Either a Video issue that is causing the PC to hang, or some other hardware problem that is causing the PC to hang.

A:No 2.1 Audio option in Realtek HD AUdio Manager

A 2.1 speaker system uses "Stereo". There is no specific setup for 2.1.

A 2.1 speaker system only uses the Green speaker jack, which is 2 channel (stereo). Other systems such as 5.1 or 7.1 use more than just the Green speaker jack and have setups for those.

I am having some weird issues when trying to use my microphone on my laptop (Rog G551, Win10). Basically, when I plug in a pair of headphones and I check "Headphones' in the Realtek HD manager I can't use the microphone at all. On the other hand, if I check "Headset", the mic works, but I can only hear from the left cup.
Any input is appreciated. Cheers!

Hello Everybody!
This problem started after someone plugged the speaker into the Line Out (black) port.
1) there is no sound, though drivers and all other audio settings are normal.
2) Reaktek HD Audio Manager pops up and the check-box window asks: Which device did you plug in? 'Line Out' is checked. On the task bar, the icon pops up a baloon saying: A jack has been plugged in. The Audio Manager window keeps refreshing itself every minute or two.

So basically my Mic aint working...

This has something to do with the wonderful invention that is Realtek Sound Manager.

but I dont know what.. or how to fix it...

and it's driving me nuts.. this comp is like 3 months old, a bit early for it to start acting up...

Thr problem is that when I use the push to talk button in either counter strike source, teamspeak or messenger, it just relays my computer sound from the speakers threw the mic (or something like that) so instead of my jammering the other players only hear Game sound or themself.

Can anyone help me??

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 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.

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?!!

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.

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 got a new computer this Christmas and inside it is the RealTek HD audio manager as my sound, and currently when I am in vent or Battlefield 2, people can hear themselves AND my game over my mic even though I'm using a headset and speakers aren't even plugged in to my comp. There is another guy as well who has the same exact problem, is it just that realtek sucks or is there some sort of problem that can be solved? Please help if possible, 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.

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.

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.

A:Realtek HD audio manager problems

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

Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

Are there any alternatives to RealTek HD Audio Manager?

No or Yes and specify the name of the alternative.

A:Are there any alternatives to RealTek HD Audio Manager?

You would have to have a sound card that would support a different manager.

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 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.

This is what i'm using, - SONY VPCF116FX/B NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 16.4" 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 500GB HDD 7200rpm BD Combo NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M

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.

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.

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
