Digital Output with Realtek Audio

Hello Everyone,

I got a problem and hope that you could help me.
I have Fujitsu-Siemens Laptop with Realtek Audio card built-in.
Initially when I open the Realtek Audio Manager it shows Speakers and Digital Output as well.
I have disabled the Digital Output at certain time, and now cannot find a way to enable it again.
I've searched in the Control Panel, tried trouble shoot utility from the Control Panel and have got no idea how to enable Digital Output back.
Any suggestion are welcome, I'll try.
Thank you

Have you tried re-installing the realtek driver?

Do you also have the Microsoft Speaker Icon in the System Tray...
Right Click on it and select "Playback Devices", then right click on the Digital Output and select "Enable".

If you don't see the Digital Output post back, there's a way to make it visible.

Hello Aphelion,

I did the right click on the Speaker in the Tray but in the Playback device there is only the Speaker.
Digital Output is not visible.
The way to make it visible is what I'm looking for.
Thanks in advance.

Hello Aphelion,

I've found the way to show the Digital Output back under the speaker.
The fact that you said there is a way makes me think and try some more actions.
Now it is back, thanks a lot for your input

Good work Nguyen! Now, did you right click on it and then select "Enable"?

Nguyen35, how were you able to solve your problem? I am facing the same issue and cannot get the Digital Output option back.

I had the same problem. Go to Control Panel and open the sound controls, click the Playback tab, then right-click in a blank area where the devices are listed. It will present you with the option of "Show Disabled Devices". Click that and it should show the Digital Output option again. Then follow the other instructions to enable it again.

It is pretty odd that the previous posts never get around to saying how they actually got it to happen!
