Ok. As you can see my friend has a device advanced settings button.
I have this:
Now. He has a slighly different setup and card but has the option I've been looking for that I *know* the card supports. Is there a way without having to install realtek's stuff (maybe replace files) to replace my manager with his and attempt to do that without replacing the actual driver
. That could work? maybe?
As you can see I am trying very hard to solve this. I could really use help.
edit: his system as almost identical to mine except I have the acer variant of his mobo and a different realtek onboard card.
edit 2: this is not just a me problem on many sites and forums I see similar problems whether it be to do the same thing or something different some people don't have the advanced settings button: Speaker+Headphone at the same time Problem
edit 3: Front jack not working for Realtek HD Audio on Windows 7
this person's solution involves bios options I don't have thanks to Acer's beautifully locked bios. Now after rereading I don't think i'd have to make any changes to me bios since I have everything but the advanced settings dialogue. damn.
edit 4: It appears that some people have the realtek (not ASUS) version of the app with the advanced options available: http://www.blog.danamccall.com/wp-co...08/realtek.jpg
Now I'm more lost than ever.
edit 5: Again. Same problem. No solution. http://www.vistax64.com/sound-audio/...o-manager.html
edit 6: I found in a random thread someone with the same model as me who had a headphones option as an input device separate from the back audio jacks. So I was right about the card supporting it.
