I upgraded today from Windows XP to Windows 7 using a copy I paid for and downloaded from my school's software store. After upgrading, everything works great except the sound. I get no sound at all. My motherboard is a BIOSTAR TF560 A2+ and the onboard audio is RealTek HD Audio. I cannot find any Windows 7 drivers for the motherboard but I found Windows 7 drivers for the audio device, but still nothing. Anyone know what could be wrong?




Hi there, yesterday afternoon after unplugging and moving my computer the strangest happened, my audio stopped working, but the thing is its only from the onboard audio, being the rear jacks on the motherboard and the front jack by the power button. even the my speakers were set as default device and default communication device there was still no audio, but my devices manager does pick it up, and when i plug in a jack into any of the ports my realtek audio manager does pop up saying ive pluged in something to whatever jack it is and it does chose the correct speaker or microphone option. but if i run audio threw my graphics card via HDMI to my screen then threw the sound output it works. please help!




Hi,

I have already done a search on this forum to see if anyone has been having a similar problem and many do, but so far no suggestions have helped me......

My problem is I have an Acer 6920G laptop running Windows 8 (and 7 on another drive) and no matter which Realtek audio drivers I use, I cannot get 5.1 digital output sound to my Creative Inspire 5.1 system. I have the correct optical cable (which worked fine on Windows 7) and I am currently using Realtek v2.70 HD Audio drivers. When I select the digital output, I can only select properties and not configuration (which is greyed out) and therefore this is no option to setup a 5.1 speaker configuration.

If I use the internal speakers built-in to the laptop (for 5.1 sound) I have no problems, but not with the external speakers.

Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Jez




Hi, I have a dualboot PC, Windows 7 and XP Home. Sound works fine when I run XP. In W7 I have no sound from the soundcard on then mainboard, but I am able to get sound via a USB sound device. I have installed the latest drivers for my mainboard and sound device from MSI home page. Could anybody help?

I figure here is a good place to put this, if not, please move it to a more appropriate forum.

The only problem I've had with Vista and now with 7 is the sound. I'm sure 98% of others are able to look past it and get on with what seems like a great OS. I have an on-board sound card and 5.1 surround speakers. In XP, with any program, the sound gets distributed across all 5 speakers and low sounds properly played fully on the sub. Music was the same way, encoded in two channels or not, it would distribute the sound and play a full bass when it needed. With Windows 7, however, it fails to do this miserably as far as I can tell.

Yes, I know about speaker fill, yes I know about bass management. Neither of these operate the 5.1 with the same quality that Windows XP naturally did. Yes, I know I'm an audiophile. Testing the speakers in Speaker Setup yields positive results: all speakers including the subwoofer work fine. Up to here, the experience is identical to XP. Once I open up Windows Media Player or Winamp, I am disturbed that only *some* of the sound is being processed to the subwoofer and no sound is being processed to the center or satellite speakers. Playing with the mixer levels, the subwoofer volume does not affect it.

It makes sense that songs that are only recorded in two channels be forced to play in only two channels, but why is XP able to do this and 7 not?

Also, I'm using Realtek's Vista HD Audio R2.22 drivers. The same version, for XP of course, works great for me in XP.




Hi all!

I just installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. Everything is working fine, except for my 5.1 audio system. the front speaker is barely making any sounds, you can hear something coming from it, even if i put the volume up its not making it lauder. all of my other speakers are working as they should( side speakers, subwoofer), it's just the center speaker. All the cables are pluged in correctly (triple cheked them). All the latest audio and video drivers are installed( from my motherboards official site,realtek audio manager's site etc.), all are updated! No errors of any kind. I know it has something to do with windows 7 64bit, but the thing is i had this problem before, about pne year ago,exactly the same thing, but theni managed somehow to fix it. I use the same hardware and software like back then.
I welcome any ideas and help!
Thank you in advance!

I have recently upgraded from windows XP Home to Windows 7 Home Premium. In XP I had no problem getting all my audio to come out of my 5.1 surround speakers and all was dandy. Ever since I upgraded I have faced the issue of various applications not making use of all channels.

Namely: WMP/iTunes/Windows plays audio through left and right only, not centre rear left or rear right. (This was never a problem before the upgrade to 7)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 however does use all channels and I get a good gaming experience just like I did before.

I have tried doing an auto driver update, only for windows to tell me the drivers are up to date. I have tried using the disk that came with my motherboard to find that it isnt supported in this version of windows. And I have played around with every combination of settings in the sound control panel to no effect.

What is pretty stupid though, is that when "testing" the speaker configuration in control panel, the dinging noises all come out of the correct speakers at the correct time, so why doesnt any other sound from windows do this? There must be an answer and I'm determined not to have to buy a new sound card (and having read around it seems that even creative sound cards dont have a lot of luck with windows 7)

PS in terms of my hardware, I think I have built in Realtek, however my software disk wants to install "SoundMAX" software. My Motherboard is an ASUS M3A32-MVP Deluxe.




Hello,

I searched before asking but none of these solutions helped me.

Three days ago my Fujitsu Siemens Pi 1536 suddenly crashed - the screen went crazy and I pushed my laptop's power button off. Then I turned it on and everything went okay - then I realized I have no audio drivers anymore. No sound, nothing.

http://i33.tinypic.com/11742eb.jpg - 'No audio devices are installed.'

http://i38.tinypic.com/23hlqw5.jpg - Windows can't detect a problem or automatically update.

I tried to reinstall them (Realtek) but this didn't help me. Tried every possible way to make things work. Uninstalled them; reinstalled them; installed them over the old ones; disabled and enabled... Still nothing.

Of course, after that I decided to reinstall my Windows 7 (clean install). I never had problems with installations until now. I boot from DVD and it loads the files, but then black screen comes with a cursor and restarts after 3 seconds. So it's kinda a restart loop. Burned Win 7 on five different DVDs - none of them work! It's the black screen with cursor over and over again.

Anyways, I finally succeeded to reinstall my laptop (clean install) and now I'm using Windows XP. After that I also installed all of my drivers and the only problem continues to be the audio.

http://i36.tinypic.com/8w04f8.jpg - In Device Manager there's no Realtek option.

So I still can use my laptop but there is no sound. I'm stuck and I'm going mad now. What the ... happened with my Fujitsu??? Is it a virus? Is my sound gone forever?

Anybody has a solution? I'd be sooo thankful!

Just tell me if you need more info about my laptop:

Processor Intel (R) CPU T2300 @ 1.66 GHz 167 GHz

I am having a problem with multiple BSODs that is driving me CRAZY! I’ve been trying, off and on, for over a year to solve this. About every two to three weeks, the PC crashes out of nowhere. At times it has gone almost three months between crashes, and at others, it has crashed more than once in the same day. This is not my computer, so I never get to see the crashes as they occur. In fact, I’ve never been able to replicate the error. All I know is that this computer has crashed about a month out of the box, and has gone down about 30 times since then. The PC in question is a Dell Optiplex 580 running x64 Windows 7 Pro, SP1. Here are some of the basic specs:

Manufacture Date: 12/29/2010
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional, SP 1 (OEM install)
System Type: 64-bit Operating System
Motherboard: MiTAC International Corp. (Dell p/n 39VR8)
Processor: 2x AMD Phenom II X2 B55 Processor
Memory: 4GB, Non-ECC, 1333MHz DDR3 (2x2GB)
BIOS: Version A05
Hard Disk: Western Digital 250GB SATA 3.0Gb/s and 8MB Data Burst Cache (model no. WD2500AAJS)
Display Adapter: 256MB ATI Raedeon HD 3450
DVD/CD-ROM Drives: HL Data Storage DVD+/-RW 16x (model no. GH50N)
Network Adapters: Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx Gigabit Controller
Sound Controllers: Realtek High Definition Audio
Power Supply: Dell 255W Model No. L255P-01 (Dell p/n T164M)

Using the Windows Debugger tool, no less than eight different stop codes (atikmdag.sys, win32k.sys, ntkrnlmp.exe, Ntfs.sys, Pool_Corruption, fileinfo.sys , win32k.sys, rdbss.sys) are shown as possible culprits. I know, I know… where to start? I have been given advice that this ranges from out-of-date/corrupted drivers, to failing memory, to bad disk sectors on the hard drive. I have approached this from each of those angles, but have come up with more questions than answers.

Here is a list of things I have done over the last few months:
· Fully updated (at least to my knowledge) all drivers
· Scanned for viruses/malware using MBAM and MSE (no evidence of malware found)
· Run full Dell Diagnostic Utility (found no RAM, HDD, or other errors)
· Stress tested drivers with Verifier.exe (have let run for up to 36 hours with no BSOD)
· Run sfc /scannow (no integrity violations)
· Run CHKDSK C: /F /R (results attached)
· Run several sessions of Memtest86 with no errors (both sticks at once, each individually, every slot)
· perfmon /report seems good (results attached)
· Used SeaTools for DOS to run diagnostic on hard drive (passed with no errors)

Everything I have checked out shows that the system is in good health, yet it’s only been 3 days since its last BSOD. I am running out of patience/ideas/options with this issue. I am still holding out hope that someone can point me in the right direction to fix this, but so far, I’ve had little to no success.

In addition to the info requested when submitting a question, I have attached a few other items, including a recent MBAM log, a sfc /scannow log, a System Internals report, the results of a CHKDSK command, a list of non-Microsoft drivers installed on the PC, and a Blue Screen View summary. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Join Date May 2012 Age 36 Posts 11 Re: x64 Windows 7 BSODs... Too Many to List in Thread Title! It's probably nothing, but I noticed something while checking out the RAMMon report. It says that DDR3 slots 1 and 2 are empty and that slots 3 and 4 seat the RAM. This is contrary to the way the slots are numbered on the motherboard. They are numbered 4 - 1, starting at 4 (closest to the CPU) working outwards towards 1. If I am to believe Dell, then I have the memory installed in slots 1 and 2. Accourding to RAMMon, the memory is in slots 3 and 4.

That makes me wonder, could the motherboard be marked incorrectly? Does it even matter? Lets assume for just one moment that the memory really is seated in slots 3 and 4. Would that actually cause instability? I can't tell you how many times someone has looked at the bug check code and told me it was probably a memory error. Yet I can't get Memtest86 to display any actual errors. Am I grasping at straws here? Or am I potentially on to something? At this point, I am pretty much desperate for answers. Files attached...

Hi all

Recently, I've been having problems with my computer constantly rebooting itself, blue screens and just freezing. It happens no matter what I'm doing, even when left idle I would come back and I would find its frozen or rebooted. This PC is mainly used for gaming, as well as University work, but it seems to freeze when nothing is running or just the internet.

The freezing mainly happens on start up and within the first 10-20minutes of the computer being on, after that it's usually fine. I've had problems with it freezing on the motherboard splash screen, and while windows is loading at start up. Sometimes the computer would freeze on startup with a completely blank screen, and all lights on (disc tray etc).

I've tried a few things, like reinstalling sound and video drivers and cleaning the registry using software recommended to me but nothing has fixed it. I only did a clean install of windows 7 a month ago, as the problems were before that but not as bad as this.

Here are my computer specs:

Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800 CPU 2.50 GHz

ASUS M2V motherboard
250GB HDD
3GB DD2 RAM
GeForce 9800GT GPU

Any advice or help would be great and really appreciated, also if anymore information is needed please ask. (I've attached the .dmp file but only after reading this forum I set windows to not automatically restart and dump to the minidump folder).

Thanks

There is an outdated Driver that is pretty old that is notorious for BSOD. It's one of your Asus Utilities. I would recommend to remove all the Asus related utilities then go to C:WindowsSystem32Drivers and rename ASACPI.sys to ASACPI.old

Uninstall your Realtek Audio Driver and download a fresh copy from vendors website and install it. Don't sue Windows Update to update your Driver.

Good Luck,
Captain




first post so be gentle if i did a mistake =]

i noticed that my left speaker doesn't work so i tried to fix it with Realtek HD audio manager and that
didn't work
i tried with the normal settings of windows 7(Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage audio devices > Speakers(configure at the bottom))
and i don't know which one caused that but now i have no sound at all except for the subwoofer(2.1 system)

i tried everything i know, i re-installed realtek hd, i changed all the settings the way they were, went back to a restore point etc, no idea,
although i did notice something, if i switch the connection at the back(from green port to any other, black, orange, yellow, blue, pink) and then when Realtek asks me what i just connected, it shows a list of rear speakers, subwoofer/center, front speakers, side speakers etc etc and i pick front speakers it works fine

now i dont care what color it is on the back but i want to buy this week a logitech x530 system and it has 3 ports, i have no idea if they will work

Thanks for any replies!




I have an ASUS P5B-MX Motherboard I've been using in LINUX for the past few years with no issues.

I install Windows 7 and have no sound. I download the latest sound drivers for Vista 32 bit off the ASUS website. This updates my Realtek High Definition Audio in Device Manager, but there is an error with the device "Multimedia Audio Controller"

I've donwloaded Driver Guide at someone else's suggestion and it was unable to detect my Multimedia Audio Controller.

What can I do? Is there something I can do to fix it? Should I purchase a cheap sound card?




I have Asus M2A-VM motherboard with onboard sound:
ATI Radeon HDMI @ ATI RV710/730/740 - High Definition Audio Controller PCI or
Realtek ALC883 @ ATI SB600 - High Definition Audio Controller PCI (not sure why there's 2 listed, used Everest to gather info)
upgraded video card:
ATI Radeon HD 4770 (RV740) Video Adapter

Problem:
Ever since installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (had to format XP off the hard drive first), windows is saying there is no sound hardware, which there is cus it's onboard. Aswell, when I go to play World of Warcraft it says "Failed to find suitable display device" yet there doesn't seem to be a problem with it, unlike the sound which has the little x on the speaker in my taskbar...
I have downloaded multiple drivers and checked my BIOS to make sure that Plug & Play OS was enabled, but still no changes... Please help.




Hello there,

I hope you can help?! Ever since I bought my P6320UK HP Pavilion Desktop i have been having intermittent issues playing sound. The audio stops and starts and is distorted. I have gone down every available avenue, been in touch with HP, PC World and had the computer away for repair but still to no success. the computer has 6GB ram and lots of memory so playing sound shouldn't be an issue. My speakers (both monitor and separate powered speakers/subwoofer) are all working correctly.

Initially I had to have the memory replaced on the computer but the memory seems to be working fine now, it's just the sound that causes issues. I have Realtek HD Audio on the computer (and there is also an option for realtek digital output but i disabled this as i don't use this). I have monitor speakers and my own speaker/subwoofer as well, which i set up as a multi-channel set up.

i think that it may be to do with Windows 7 set up- as i notice a few other people have posted comments on windows 7 forums that it seems to be a windows 7 problem. it's nothing to do with the software as i've tried a system reboot and it doesn't make any difference to the sound.

I hope you can help - it would be much appreciated because it is very frustrating!

Many thanks
Morven




Hey everyone,

Just to be clear on what kind of motherboard I'm using and the onboard audio in said motherboard, here's the model number: GA-M57SLI-S4 (AMD - socket AM2)

and the onboard audio is by Realtek. The mobo itself is a bit outdated I guess, at about 4-5 years now.

I listen to a lot of music and also dabble in FLStudio, so the ability to hear both the left and right channels is super important for me.

The problem I'm facing is that even after installing the drivers/codecs for Realtek HD audio several times from the Gigabyte support site, automatic updates or other driver downloads, this happens:

When I set the audio balance to center, I only hear the left channel audio - but in both ears on headphones or both sides on speakers. Setting the balance to 100% left gives the same effect as mentioned with center balance, while setting the balance to 100% right yields no sound in the right channel, actually no sound at all.

It seems that I'm either going to have to fork over some extra cash for a proper sound card, wait till Realtek gets real with their drivers, or just live hearing the left side of everything :P

I've looked at dozens of posts regarding audio problems but they seem unique to each system mentioned. I've even run tests on the control panel for the left and right channels with the same result - there's audio on the left, none on the right. Upon checking the device manager, there seems to be no problems detected.

I'm not expecting a solution to this anytime soon, but I'd like to know if there are others out there with the exact problem and if they were able to solve it. If I happen to miraculously figure out how to fix it I shall post over this for anyone else in my situation.

Cheers,

H




There is no sound and the icon on the bottom task bar shows the x. I checked Programs and it shows Realtek High Defination Audio Driver....what must I do to get sound? 4th computer and never had this problem. When your used to sound on the computer this seems weird. Any help would be appreciated.

My PC is running Windows 7 64-bit with onboard Realtek HD Audio. I've checked all obvious places, Device Manager, Volume Control, RealTek HD Audio Manager, etc. I've tried a dozen different fixes involving regedit, services.msc and uninstalling drivers, updating drivers, rolling back drivers, etc.

I uninstalled the free version of AVG Anti-Virus because I found someone who linked their similar issues to that. I've installed Microsoft Security Essentials (because it rated high on this website) and run a Full Scan just to see if it was some malware or virus. Came back clean.

Out of desperation, I bought a Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! external sound card and disabled the onboard audio in BIOS and uninstalled all related sound card crap I could find before installing the X-Fi drivers. Still the same issue.

iTunes simply says "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly." iTunes then loads fine but will not do anything when clicking Play. I've uninstalled Quicktime with no results.

All games, YouTube, Mozilla Firefox 12, IE 9.0.6, Windows Media Player 12 are silent. I have Adobe Audition and it simply does NOT show any sound hardware available.

So I know it is not a hardware issue. I haven't played in Windows Tech World for a few years but I've tried everything I could think of with no success. I searched all the threads here that sounded remotely similar with nothing near to this posted.

Any suggestions or solutions would be greatly appreciated!

I'd be glad to provide any other information... my PC is less than 3 months old.

Processor: Intel(R) Pentium (R) D CPU 3.00GHZ
Memory: 2.00GB of RAM
Sound: RealTek High Defintion Audio
Display: NVIDIA GeForce 7350 LE

I have TRIED EVERYTHING to fix this issue with my computer and I can't stands no more! I contacted RealTek and they gave me a diagnostic tool to figure out what my issue was. They claimed they couldn't find anything wrong with my driver so they believe that it is something else.

I have ran the DPC latency checker and have disable numerous drivers and the only thing I have concluded is this:

This is what it looks like with the internet on (eventually the pops and static return):

This is what it looks like without the internet on:

And here's a dl link of just how terrible the audio sounds:
zSHARE - Sample of crackling noise issue.wma(The sound at 1:33 is halloween sound effect worthy!)

Another thing is that since updating to windows 7 from Vista (ALMOST A YEAR AGO), the internet icon on my toolbar has not been correct since. It has the warning logo and says "unidentified network" when I am connected to the web. I truly think that my NIC has something to do with this problem.




I'm about to lose it....so I'll make this quick as I can...Sound card drivers, no matter if they're for onboard or PCI will not install properly. This is the only thing I can't get to work on Win7. I upgraded from XP. Also, my keyboard won't work during bootup so I can't get into BIOS to disable onboard sound. Until I can find a keyboard that works, drivers for onboard sound are what I'm focusing on getting to work. Here are the details and everything I've done so far.

Onboard Sound Card: Realtek HD Audio
Hardware I'ds:
HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_103C2A4F&REV_1000
HDAUDIOFUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_103C2A4F

PCI Sound Card (physically removed from the pc currently to force pc to use onboard, but needs to work):
Sound Blaster Audigy SE (model:SB0570)
Hardware I'ds:
PCIVEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_100A1102&REV_00
PCIVEN_1102&DEV_0007&SUBSYS_100A1102
PCIVEN_1102&DEV_0007&CC_040100
PCIVEN_1102&DEV_0007&CC_0401

Here's what I've done:
- started out trying to get the Sound Blaster to work but stopped once I read onboard sound needs to be disabled in BIOS which i can't access using this keyboard for some reason
- device manager showed exclamation point in a yellow triangle and gave the error "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" for the Realtek card
- uninstalled drivers thru device mgr, ran the install file for the downloaded drivers (retrieved from a link posted here in this forum) using Vista sp2 compatibility mode and run as administrator
- install started but inevitably stops and I get "Driver software was not successfully installed."
- it starts to detect problems and gives me "Problems Found: Realtek HD Audio has a driver problem-- Not Fixed"
- i get no where at that point....
- i've installed all the Windows Updates available so far
- i attempted to run a BIOS update from Compaq for this pc model but it won't start. I get the error "Your system does not meet the minimum requirements for this update. Update has been cancelled. (9998)"
- also along with the Realtek it shows Microsoft Trusted Audio Drivers..same error in device mgr (cannot load device driver...code 39)
- my keyboard is a Logitech black/thin illuminated, USB connection...works fine after bootup...just won't respond to ESC or any F keys during bootup....in case someone knows why this is happening too

I'm literally about to wipe this freakin OS off and put XP back on. I love everything else about Win7 though and would hate to lose it. I need sound...no doubt...before I pull my hair out. Thanks in advance for all guidance and suggestions




Hi, I'm running Windows 7 RC 7100 and everyhtings working fine apart from the sound. When i install the latest Realtek High Definition Audio driver it installs fine and when i restarrt i have sound and the Realtek icon is in the taskbar, but when i next restart the computer the drivers are gone (windows seems to have replaced them with the standard drivers that were already installed), the Realtek icon has gone from the taskbar and obviously i have no sound. The Realtek software is still listed in the installed software list though and uninstalling and reinstalling makes the sound work again...until i next restart the computer.

Very annoying, any ideas?
