Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio

Realtek HD Audio

Basically it is unpredictable. Any speaker or 2 can stop working at any given time. The fix seems to be to take out the chords and then put them back in. i have had trouble with every driver i install, it is just always different but randomly fixes itself. This problem is persistent though and it drives me mad.

i will sit and watch a movie with no trouble and then sit to watch another one later in the day and two speakers will randomly be out.

could it be a connection problem? The chords appear to be fine.

And also VLC seems to be linked to my media volume key. i have no idea why this started.

i also think that the max volume is sometimes different.

I had a similar problem some time back and I got some contact cleaner and sprayed it on the speaker jacks that plug into the computer and plugged and unplugged each jack multiple times to try and clean the internal contacts.

Seems to have worked.

Realtek ALC889 audio, audio fine on S/PDIF, nothing from rear output

So in the sound manager I changed the output to...
