Realtek Drivers Do Not Recognize Subwoofers


I have a 5. 1 sound ( logitech ) but when i use the realtek drivers for my system the subwoofer ins't detected so, i lost my surround. But, if i change the realtek sound driver ( actually using the latest one 2. 43 ) to the windows default, the problem is gone. The weird thing is: this issue just happen on seven, using vista the sub-woofer work's fine.

Realtek Audio Drivers And Applications Problem

I recently upgraded my vista x86 machine to windows 7 ultimate x86. Here is a brief summary of the hardware. It wasn't a fresh install.

Gigabyte: ga-ep35-ds4 rev 2. 1
Intel q9450 quad 2. 66ghz cpu
4 gb ram

Prior to upgrade i

Flashed the motherboard bios to f6
Updated all the hardware drivers from the website gigabyte motherboard drivers

After the upgrade i re-applied all the hardware drivers from the gigabyte website, just in case.
Post windows 7 upgrade, i'm experiencing issues with all applications that interact with audio

Switching between applications that use audio causes applications to hang. Trying to access the speaker volume controls results in eventlog entries like "the program sndvol.exe version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 stopped interacting with windows and was closed". Skype 4. 1. 0. 178 will not answer phone calls. If you make one it will ring the pc speakers indefinitely (very annoying). The only solution is a pc reboot to stop the ringing sound.

If you open windows media player then another application that need to use the speakers, media player hangs. (This is consistent accross all apps that want to send sound to the speakers). When i try to use remote desktop (with remote audio being brought to my local pc) the application just continuously tries to connect, but never gets further. If you switch off sound transfer in connection options and your can use remote desktop again.

Games like call of duty 4 will not open, just hang. It would seem that windows 7 dynamic sound switching between application is part of the problem. The windows 7 hd audio drivers are the microsoft v6. 1. 7600. 16385 edition and trying to install the realtek ones seems to work then they get replaced by the microsoft editions as soon as there is a audio failure.

Ok so it was a bit of a fluke to work out that the audio drivers are causing this application behavior, but my big concern is that windows 7 doesn't seem to be recognizing the issue and reporting the problem to microsoft via the "action center".

So how do i report the issue to the various people and even better, how do i solve this problem?

Realtek Driver Problems

Ok so yesterday i installed the lovely new windows 7 ultimate. All installations fine, fully updated and what not. Then today i realized my back two speakers on my 5. 1 surround sound are not working. So i download drivers, install and restart pc. When i test speakers via realtek i can hear that its recognized all speakers on my system. But i can't seem to get it be to the default driver and to play my music through all my speakers. I did get it too at one point but it was echoing which isn't ideal. So if anyone has any ideas on this that'd be grateful. I have a built in sound card on a asus p5k-se mother bored.

Realtek Audio Driver Error 10

Conexant cx20468 @ intel 82801fbm ich6-m - ac'97 audio controller [b-2] pci so basically thats
My audio hardware on this laptop, i dl realtek (it should be i cant remember if it was realtek) but it came with a error 10 it can't start. Other people say its conexant driver but non of them install it it always says istall failed. Now i found a interesting thing 

1. Install realtek audio driver (wdm_a380 or wdm_a381, doesn't matter).
2. Reboot
3. Download and try to install the conexant ac 97 audio driver. You can get the one from gateway (d00245-001-001 driver), or any other manufacturer that uses this chip in the notebook. Pay attention to where it stores the files. For instance the gateway driver uncompresses to c:cabsdirectory name.
4. Go to device manager, find the realtek ac 97 audio item under sound, video, and game controllersť. Right click on it and select update driver
5. Select no if it asks to connect to windows update, click next
6. Select install from a list of specific locationť and click next
7. Select dont search. I will choose the driver to installť and click next
8. De-select show compatible hardwareť.conexant should show up under manufacturer since you tried to install the driver earlier.
9. Click on conexant on the left, then select conexant ac-link audioť on the right and click next the driver will install. It may ask you for the location of some files, point it to the directory the conexant driver uncompressed to in step 3.
Reboot, and you should have working audio!ť

It nearly worked my audio driver seem to be working, when i clicked on the sound to regulate the sound it showed that the sound driver was getting the sound, but nothing was coming out of the laptop(i tried regular ones but still nothing. Is there a simple driver that i could just install and it works or do i have tot to something harder to get it work. Btw i have windows 7 and i doesn't find any updates for it.

Realtek Ac'97 Sound Cards Problem

I went through every step ms support could come up with and the issue is the same. In xp pro, my sound was perfect. The upgrade to w7 did something strange to the sound i couldn't put a finger on. Then a speaker test revealed distortion in my left (front) speaker and the center speaker. They were also very low compared to the right side.

Installing the driver vista_win7_r238.exe turned all my speaker levels to an equal arrangement, but there was extreme bass distortion from the left and center. What was really fun was when my speakers suddenly stopped working altogether. There appears to be damage from high frequencies sent to my speakers. How w7 screwed up on audio is beyond me. This is the heart of any multimedia setup.

Realtek - I Get No Sound After Win 7 Pro Install

I installed windows 7 pro 64 bit on my toshiba notebook replacing wndows 7 rc. I left rc on the system and can still boot to it. I get no sound from any source for both speakers and headphones. I have tried the driver that came with windows 7, the realtek driver from their site, and the realtek driver from toshiba. I have checked all of the various settings and everything is enabled and working properly except there is no sound. When i click the sound button on the taskbar, select playback devices, select speakers, advanced, and test, i get the message "failed to play test tone. " Device manager says everything is working ok. Using sound from control panel and selecting sounds and any sound from the list and test gets no sound but no error message. Playing an audio cd opens media player but will not play the tracks. It just goes into a loop with no error message. When i select a library music file with media player and then select a title the message "windows media player encountered a problem while playing the title" appears.

When i boot from windows 7 rc everything works perfectly. This eliminates a hardware problem. The driver in rc is the original release version, 4/9/2009. I installed windows 7 pro on my desktop and it works fine. This is the only major problem with 7. It is a shame to waste 2 days already on this.

Problem With Realtek Rtl8139 Ethernet Driver

So when the ethernet controller is installed again, again and again i need to re-enter my ip addresses again, again and again. While i was using windows xp i didn't have this problem. The pci ethernet controller is driver integrated and windows xp didn't recognize it like a new installed device after restart.

Connecting Realtek Hd Audio Sound Card To Surround Speakers

If anyone can tell me which cable i need to connect my old logitech subwoofer and speakers to my new pc. The sound card is the realtek hd audio, and only has one outlet. The speaker system is called xtrusio dsr-100, and has one digital plugin, and two analog for front and rear: i used to have it connected to creative sb live sound card with a digital outlet to the "digital" plugin in the subwoofer. The cable was with two trrs 3, 5 jacks, but that cable doesnt work with the realtek soundcard.

Realtek Driver Won't Load With Ati Radeon Hd5670

Realtek driver won't load with ati radeon hd5670 - defaults to hdmi - no sound i built a system using an intel dx58so motherboard and gigabyte ati hd5670 1gb. The motherboard has on board audio, and it is enabled in the bios (checked multiple times on many reboots). Sound was working fine for a week (system was built last week) but suddenly went out. On reboot, device manager shows high definition audio device only. Clicking the volume icon shows digital audio (hdmi).

I do not have an hdmi ready monitor, and i do not have an hdmi cable plugged into the video card. I found previous solutions online that mentioned ati's hdmi driver tries to take over as default and have implemented the solutions to no avail. I have tried installing the latest realtek drivers (5/15/2010), but doing so does not install the audio manager console.

Realtek is also not listed in device manager. I have previously uninstalled and disabled (separate reboots) the hdmi driver to see if then rebooting would cause windows to default to the on board audio with no success. Either the hdmi driver gets reinstalled automatically (microsoft driver version 6. 1. 7600. 16385), or i end up with a "no audio devices" message. The operating system is windows 7 home premium.

Realtek High Definition Audio Not Recognizing Rear Panel Speakers

Everything worked great until last week. I had not made any changes and the update logs did not show any updates.

Issue: using "realtek hd audio manager" in the control panel. The back panel is not showing any speakers connected. (Tested speakers and working on other systems. ) No sound at all until i disabled front panel jack detection. Now i get sound threw the rear speakers but with static at 1/2 volume, no mute, and the "realtek hd audio manager" still shows no rear panel speakers.

Things i've tried:

Checking connections (cleaning connections)
Different speakers.
Un-installing drivers and software.
Updating drivers.
Rolling back drivers.
System restore.

Note: the "realtek hd audio manager" shows the digital connection and front panel as available but has faded out the rear panel even though the rear panel are the only jacks in use. I can usually solve these problems on my own and this is the first time i've used a forum to ask for assistance in 15 years. I'm just stumped.

Realtek high definition audio (onboard asus cg5270) - current driver v6. 0. 1. 6043

Os: win7 64-bit

Win 7 Wont Recognize Second Monitor

Since the installation of windows 7 64-bit, i have not been able to connect my flat screen to my computer as a second monitor. I know how i am supposed to go about connecting the 2nd monitor and i had done it numerous times using windows vista 32-bit. When i right click on the desktop and go into screen resolution, it shows me a picture of a screen with a 1 in it and it has two buttons beside it; detect and identify. I assume if everything was working the way it should, a second monitor picture would appear when i press detect, but instead nothing happens.

I have a dell inspiron 1720, a panasonic 52in plasma, and i am using an s-video cable to connect the two. What i have read online suggests that it might be my video card driver's problem, but i dont know how to go about fixing this, if indeed it is the problem. Im not sure exactly which video card i have, and my computer just says its the standard vga graphics adaptor.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Hard Drive

I am building two new computers and purchased two oem licenses of windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Both computers are using a biostar ta890gxb hd motherboard, amd phenom ii x6 1055t cpu, lg gh24 multi-optical drive, and 4 gb of kingston ddr3 1333 ram. The first computer was recycling a maxtor stm3320620as hard drive. This had been recently reformatted to ntfs, so essentially starting over from scratch. The second computer was using a brand new hitachi hd30500idk hard drive.

Upon booting up the first computer, i would get to the screen where i am to choose what hard drive to install on, but none are listed. The bios does show the hard drive properly. I tried going into advanced section to load drivers, but it can't find any drivers for the sata controller. I then followed advice i found when searching for a solution and i found how to get to the command line.

I am able to go to the c: drive. I was able to re-format the c: drive. After it was finished, i tried to go back in and it still does not recognize any hard drives. After a while, i gave up and tried working on the second computer. Upon booting up the second computer, i got to the screen for choosing the hard drive and it identified the hitachi hd. I was able to install the operating system and everything has been exactly what i was expecting it to be. S stated, they are identical except for the hard drives.

I have double checked all my connections numerous times on the first computer but everything checks out fine. It seems odd that i can access the hard drive in command line and in the bios, but the windows 7 installer doesn't recognize it. Any advice besides going out and purchasing a new hard drive?

Drive Will Not Recognize The Win 7 Disk

I inserted the windows 7 home premium disk. It opened as advertised and gave me instructions on what to do prior to installing. I followed all recommend procedures including deleting trend micro and photoshop elements 4, etc. After deleting trend micro vista asked to restart the computer. I did as it asked. After doing that, my windows vista will not recognize the disk. When i try to access the drive via computer/dvd drive e:, i get the message; "insert a disk". The drive will read other disks just fine but not the windows 7 disk now what?

Win7 Will Not Recognize Raid 0 Array

I can not get windows 7 to recognize my raid array.
 
To begin, this is a fresh install on an asus m4a78td-v evo m/b, amd phenom ii x4 955 3200 mhz, 4 gbs ddr3 memory, 2 western digital 2 tb wd20eads-00s2b0 sata 3g, and a benq dw1625 dvd burner. Nothing is over clocked and using stock video and sound.
 
When i install with a raid 0, 128 kb stripe block, fast init on, gigabyte boundary off, cache mode write through, and no use of the drivers for the raid array for the mother board as windows 7 ultimate x64, i can get to the point of the first re-boot and get a message of: windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install windows, restart the installation. If i restart, i get the same message.
 
Same setup, but this time i use the motherboard raid drivers downloaded from asus , ahcix64s. Inf, i get an error message of windows is unable to install to the selected location. Error: 0x80300001. So i partition the 3725. 9 gb raid to 1-100 mb system partition, 2047. 9 gb primary partition, and 1677. 9 gb unallocated and get the same message for each of the 3 drives as above. If i extend the 2nd partition of 2047. 9 gb, i get the message of: failed to extend the selected partition. [Error: 0x80042468].
 
Finally, if i delete the raid array and change the bios setting for the sata port 1-6 to ide, the install will complete, but without the raid 0 array. Please, what am i doing wrong or what do i need to get the raid 0 array?

Win 7 Wont Recognize Cd-rom

Ok, here’s the skinny.
 
I have a dell something.
 
Intel® pentium® 4 cpu 3. 20 ghz 3. 19ghz
3. 00 gb
32-bit operating system
Windows 7 home premium
 
My problem is that i am unable to use my cd-rom.
 
About a year ago my dc-rom took a dump and stopped opening so i just never used it. Well, about 2 months ago i upgraded from xp to win 7. The other day i needed to run an cd and decided to put in a new cd-rom. Took the old out and put the new in. Problem is that even though it is plugged in (long skinny data cable and what appears to be a 3-pring power plug) it won’t work. The cd-rom opens and closes but win 7 won’t recognize it.
 
Trouble shooting 101: yes, the cd-rom works. I took it out of this out of my last dell pc that it came in. The rom is a sonycd-rw crx216e. After discovering that it won’t work in this pc i put it back in the old dell. Plugged it in, tossed in a cd and bam! Works just fine. Took it back out of that old pc and put it in this pc and nothing. It should be noted the other pc is running xp.
 
So now i’m like ***. So, i decided to plug in the old cd-rom  that came w/ this pc that is broken and reboot. And win 7 still won’t recognize this one either.
 
Now i don’t know when i lost control of my cd-rom because i haven’t used it in so long. I don’t know if i lost it after installing win 7 or what. I do know i can’t get it to work now.
 
I’ve tried reading forums and can’t seem to find a fix. I even tried to run the built in win 7 troubleshooting program and it say’s it is not detecting an optical something or another drive. When i open my device manager it does not show any cd-rom installed.
 
I even tried going to dell and downloading the latest drivers for the rom, which was last updated in 2004, and running those. End result, nothing.
 
Anyone got any ideas?
