Windows 7: Realtek High Definition Audio Troubles - Not Detecting Anything

Realtek High Definition Audio Troubles - Not Detecting Anything

Hello, thanks in advance for reading.
Previously I had Realtek HD Manager installed, but under the direction of another, I uninstalled it, as it wasn't detecting any devices plugged into it.

I am still having the same problem, and when I attempt to install Realtek again, it comes with either :

Or this, and it will repeatedly come up no matter how many times I allow it, until it eventually just closes itself.

edit : This is for any of the drivers available on the website, the first one being RC266 Vistax64, the second one being AC97.


Here is an image of the playback devices :

Previously, instead of "High Defintion Audio Device", it was shown "Realtek High Definition ect ect."
It used to show "Digital Output" being the only one plugged in, and on the HD Audio Manager, nothing else was detected.

Device Manager :


AMD Athlon II X2 250
A780L3G Mobo [Integrated Sound]
AMD Radeon HD 6670
Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

High Definition Audio Device suggests a generic Windows installed sound driver rather than the RealTek driver.

Make sure you are getting the correct driver, either Vista or Windows 7 for 64 bit OS, from the PC or motherboard vendor's site. Windows XP drivers are not compatible. If you get the warning on a valid driver, click the Install anyway and it should install.

Correct driver, 64 bit and Windows 7.
After clicking install, it will load for a few seconds, then pop up again.
It will do this repeatedly for 5~10 times, then it will close itself.

Download the zipped version of the audio driver from Realtek and extract the contents to a folder. Now, follow the instructions in the following Tutorial, remembering to browse for this folder when instructed.

Nevermind, fixed that problem with this :
Take Ownership of a File/Folder [I took ownership of C:]

But now I have this, and still no sound.

"Speakers" I believe is the front and back audio jacks.
Still says not plugged in, Digital Output gives no sound.

The Digital Output is for the S/PDIF jack(s) in the back. You would use these, for example, if you are sending the audio to a digital receiver/amp that has it's own speakers. One jack might be for using a single wire cable and another might be for an optical cable. Or you may have a combination jack. Fill in your system specs and someone may be able to give better personalized help.

In any case, if you are plugging speakers into your PC for sound, you want the Speakers to be the default output.

Thanks for the insight.
I know I need the Speakers to be default, but it shows as not plugged in.
I have no optical cables or HDMI cables plugged into the Comp.
Normally I'd be using headphones plugged into the front jack [3.5], but my monitor [HF225] has speakers built in, that I can plug in the back if I choose to.

Filled out my system specs.

Check to see if there's a BIOS update for your motherboard. Is this a new or recent build?

BIOS updated, then downgraded back, still does not work.
Built it around July ~ August.
