I'm expiriencing the same problem with my audio. But once the Realtek audio speakers comes back, the default speakers and headphones goes away and I continue to have the same problem with the Realtek driver. I am pretty experienced with drivers and sound settings but this problem has me stumped. I attempted to reformat the computer with windows 10 and erase all drivers but Realtek was already installed. It appears to be installed correctly and working.
Second, computer speaker systems have a built in power amplifier so the lower level isn't a problem. Don't worry I'll try to help you out. Navigate to Driver tab, click Uninstall. Go to the motherboard manufacturer's site for example Asrock and download the sound driver. The sound is coming from the internal speakers.
See if it will work when you switch from the Realtel driver to the Windows native audio driver. It's my second time having this no audio problem ever since I updated to windows 10. I really need some help to resolve this. If the solution provided worked for you, please mark accepted solution for this post. Ronnie et al, Let me add my voice to the previous post. A more specific scenario, which is the most common for me is, I plug my Headset in, Realtek asks me what device I plugged in, I select Headphones.
I tried all kind of drivers, from laptop manufacturer, to Realtek's, to the ones in Windows Update Catalogue. If there is no driver for Windows 10, try 8 or 7. Sound is playing as the volume leve indicator is moving up and down and is green yet no sound. Despite Updating,Downgrading and installing drivers from a whole new start this issue does not vanish. Bios says onboard audio enabled.
This topic is rather old but still. Definitely, there is nothing with hardware, as it is ok on another operating system. I'm having the exact same problem with my install of Win7. I assume it is required for this specific laptop? Maybe I'm just screwed till Microsoft puts out more updates. If it worked when the laptop was new but no longer works, you can find out for sure if it is a hardware problem by performing a system recovery return the laptop back to its original factory configuration. I've installed and re-installed several times the latest audio driver software from the Dell website. The speakers are fine as I have tested them on my mobile.
Thank you for all your advice Mr. Realtek High Definition Sound Problem: Hello! You should start your own thread. Have you tried the speakers in the headphone jack on the front or a headset? I don't even know what it is. I even tried to uninstall the driver and roll back to 2. But none of the suggestions I've seen seem relevant to my particular situation. Look at the Device Manager, Sound, Video and Game Controller section.
I've searched everywhere for a solution, but seemingly can't find one. Also you can update your realtek audio drivers easily. It even correctly mutes the laptop speaker. It appears to be installed correctly and working. However, that isn't the device that I need. Select ' Driver ' tab and select Roll Back Driver check if the issue persists. I had this same issue and fixed it by installing a new 'optional' windows update.
Although, if you do decide to go with a dedicated soundcard route, make sure it supports what you're looking for, so that you don't run into the same problem with a new card as well. Try to play audio and check if that resolves the issue. Anyway hope this helps : The above did not work for me and additional their was no audio driver under optional this is was I did 1. The only difference I have is that either my Headset works then the speakers will not if I take them out, or the Speakers work, then the Headset will not once I've removed it and even if I plug it back in. I have tried uninstalling the driver, and trying to install vista's ac 97 codec.
They told me if I want I can ask a motherboard replacement on the laptop, however I'm a bit confused if that would help or not, they were not sure either. Open the Device Manager 2. The green bar goes up on the volume control tho. Internet Speed: 5Mbps Browser: Internet Explorer 11, Firefox and SeaMonkey, Edge when absolutely necessary Antivirus: Windows Defender Other Info: Also running Linux Mint on a Desktop and a Notebook. Check to see if any 'optional updates' are available. I'm using Realtek High Definition driver and it worked good before. I've tried a driver reinstall, I've tried updating everything, which everything was already up to date.
