Realtek HD Audio Issues

Realtek HD Audio Issues
Views: 84
Just bought a new computer and installed Windows 7 on it. I have a Asus M3A78-CM AMD 780V/SB700 Chipset w/Integrated ATI video, 8-channels, Gb LAN, S-ATA Raid, USB 2.0, Single PCI-E MB motherboard and am using Realtek HD onboard audio. I am experiencing some popping, ventrilo lagging inbound every now and then, and as soon as I launch any game there is a constant hiss in my headphones.
The only time the hiss goes away is when the game is booting up or a map is loading. I am using the newest drivers from realtek's site. I am using my mobo's latest bios, but I have not installed the chipset driver, because there is only a Vista driver.

Realtek HD audio problem

Realtek HD audio problem Icon
I have an onboard Realtek HD audio device, which I have installed many drivers for, including the latest released as per the sticky thread. I have changed the speaker settings to all available options. Basically, I have tried every option I could think of. But, I still have playback issues where everything has a sort of popping/static sound to my mp3 and movie files.
Laptop is an Acer 5050-3785. I had no problems in previous builds with my sound.

Surround Sound Windows 7 Issues.

Surround Sound Windows 7 Issues. Icon

I currently bought a logitech z506 5.1 surround sound.

Mobo : MSI z77a-g43
Sound Output : Realtek T.T.

Did my research, updated drivers / uninstalled reinstalled / Windows sound setting / Realtek Audio Manager Sound settings / Updated Windows / Basically everything I could do for free.

I do understand some people got rid of this problem with by upgrading their Soundcard or switching Audio cables.

I can't switch audio cables and sound cards are out of my range. I even double checked the Audio Headers on the Mobo no problems. and Windows 7 wow.

 

One Speaker not working

One Speaker not working Icon

I have an HP Pavilion Elite HPE-510y. It has no "speakers" you have to plug them in, the computer is about a year old and sound only comes out of one of everything. Headphones, speakers, etc.

And both speakers work while in other devices. I have never really done anything out of the ordinary that could have broke anything. Is there a way to scan to see a problem, or why sound is only coming out of one speaker?

This is the audio stuff from the computer. I am on Windows 7 ultimate 64bit Sound/Audio

*Integrated audio is not available if a sound card is installed.

Very low sound leve and no video on wmp just crackly sound

Very low sound leve and no video on wmp just crackly sound Icon

A while back I got Uniblue powersuite (maybe a stupid move?) to check the drivers on my machine. I had heaps of out of date ones according to the program. Ever since I updated them I've been having audio issues.

I have a ASUS M60J laptop, intel i7 processor, running Windows 7.and, I think my machine came installed with Realtek HD Audio.

Over the past couple of months I have installed: (1) Vista_Win7_R258.exe and then(2) Vista_Win7_R259.exe, both downloaded from the Realtek website, in an attempt to fix the problem.

Under Device mananger > Sound, video and game controllers I have the following: > Bluetooth hands free audio

> High Definition Audio Device
> High Definition Audio Device
> High Definition Audio Device
> High Definition Audio Device
> Realtek High Definition Audio

I have deleted the "high Definition Audio Device" entries several times but they just come back (maybe during windows update operations?)

Current symptoms are:

Very low volume levels (when I've shifted it to full volume) when watching any youtube video.

WMP: No video works, just crackly audio when I move the time bar VLC Player: I get the video, but no audio

Crackling from my speakers when I go to certain websites (might be flash?) When I go to the Realtek Sound Manager in the hidden icons tray it sometimes says that I don't have Windows Vista and therefore it can't run, or something along those lines.

 

"You just unplugged a device from the audio jack" upon loud sounds

"You just unplugged a device from the audio jack" upon loud sounds Icon

I've recently replaced my old Hard Drive, making my PC actually worth doing something on, but a problem showed up recently. Sometimes, when I'm playing a song with strong vocals or bass, or a sound intensive game (Shift 2 Unleashed, in which case it ended with a brutal BSOD), the message balloon pops up saying "You just unplugged a device from the audio jack" for about 4 seconds, and then working normally again, that is, until something loud happens again.

This does a good job of pissing me off every single time I shoot something in Serious Sam 3, or listening to a song, it even happens when I'm using headphones. Here's my sound analysis by Speccy:

Can't Upgrade from Windows sound driver

Can't Upgrade from Windows sound driver Icon

I recently upgraded 2 PCs to Windows 7. Both of them are clean installs. 1 of them I used 32 bit (4GB RAM), the other 64bit (6GB RAM). They both have the Realtek High Def Audio sound cards built in.

On the 4GB PC, Windows uses its OWN High Def Audio sound driver, which works but sounds like crap, no dept, no bass. On the 6GB PC, Windows 64 FOUND the Realtek High Def Audio sound driver so it sounds great.

I have tried on the 4GB PC to install the Realtek High Def Audio sound driver (from downloading it) BUT upon restart Windows 7 reverts BACK to its own High Def Audio sound driver, I have tried disabling it and removing it before installing the Realtek High Def Audio sound driver but upon reboot it always goes back to the Windows driver.

The download is an executable (and runs w/o creating a folder) so I can't point the Win driver to it.?!?!?!?

 

Front panel audio jack doesnt work after sleep mode until restart

Front panel audio jack doesnt work after sleep mode until restart Icon

I have realtek ALC898, part of gigabyte Z77 UD5h mobo, windows 7 ultimate 64bit. Rear jack speakers always work, sound always works. But after sleep, the front panel audio jack does not work, ie headphones silent.

Workaround 1) go to device manager, disable realtek high definition audio, then enable it, then front panel audio jack works properly. workaround 2) restart the computer and it works again.

I tried disabling sleep and using hibernate, since I read somewhere that hibernate is like a restart, but apparently it is not. Using hibernate, once it resumes from hibernate, front jack still doesn't work just like using sleep mode.

It sounds like resuming from sleep mode or hibernate mode, that windows 7 is failing to reinitialize some of the realtek audio drivers, at least those associated with front panel audio jack for headphones. So have to restart or disable/enable realtek high def audio in device manager.

I have most recent realtek drivers, tried both from realtek, and most recent from Gigabyte, both have same issue. My windows 7 is fully up to date.

 

No audio through HDMI on Dell XPS 15z

No audio through HDMI on Dell XPS 15z Icon

I recently bought a Dynex HDMI cable. When I connect to my tv there are no issues with picture quality but there is no sound coming from my TV, just my laptop. The option to set it to default device doesn't work because it is grayed out and says not plugged in I've tried updating my [LINK], and am 100% sure they all worked. Looking at my drivers I have:

Nvidia high definition audio

Audio Jack Reassignment without Realtek

Audio Jack Reassignment without Realtek Icon

I am trying to re-map my rear audio jacks (bass, l/r or whichever) to be the default audio output (green jack) as my front jack is broken ( I have to tape male 3.5mm at certain angle) and the tip of another male 3.5mm is broken in rear normal (green) jack.

I found the sticky thread pertaining to realtek drivers/audio manager, but I do not have a realtek sound card. Despite this I searched through my registry to get to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E96C-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0000\Settings\DevType_0888_SS147b1083 or ending in DevType_0885_SS18490890" but it does not look the same.

When I check what my drivers are under device manager -> Sound, video and game controllers, there are 5 items that drop down:
