Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio Driver AND nVidia HD drivers?

Have a look in control panel for an icon for you particular sound card, be it VIA or Realtek, etc. Once you find it and run the application there should be options to reconfigure the jacks. Your Mic jack will likely end un being the center, sub channel. Some are auto sensing so just plugging in the cables may auto switch it. There should be a speaker test option in there somewhere too, to verify you've got it all plugged in correctly.

same 4 drivers

i also have the Nvidia drivers plus the realtek. I use the realtek for my lcd speakers and one of the Nvidia for my hdmi. i have the others disabled. My problem is i have an unknown device attached that i believe is coming from one of those drivers. can anyone help me in the right direction? I tried playing movies using the hdmi while others disabled and its like a 50/50 chance when it doesnt just freeze. I might have other problems as well but i just want to get started, thanks in advance

Your best option, for a good response to your problem, would be to start your own thread. You''ll get more looks/hits that way.

Thanks for the advice. I had a look for the option to reconfigure the jacks and couldn't find anything. This is an on board sound card, would that make any difference? Is there anything else I could do, like change the driver or something?
Thanks

The hardware has to support that function regardless of the driver. It may not work without the correct driver but the hardware has to support it in the first place. if it doesn't, it doesn't matter what driver you use. Both of my current PC's support that function with their onboard sound. One is Realtek and the other is a VIA chip-set. Get your driver from the motherboard manufacturers support web page for your model motherboard. You might also want to look at your motherboards manual to see what it says regarding the audio jack configuration.

Thanks all. Eventually used an online program to identify my motherboard, then used the intel website to update software. May have been lucky but now have surround sound though the 3 connections that normally do mic & input. Cheers for the help, got there eventually.

Well I have been reading all over about the 2 drivers clashing and only the 2. Seems realtek and nvidia dislike each other. After 4 days of vigorous work of installing / uninstalling ccleaners reg edit... You name it I did it. I saw someone say.. when they updated/ installed Nvidia it kicked realtek off. It was forced off in bios. Not sure why it did. I checked mine this morning and sure was the same. It kicked my on board off. Then nvidia HD audio was only showing. Check there might just be an easy fix. It may be reading your on board HD or another.

I dont get it. Do nvidia cards also process sound if you use HDMI? i have a sound card with its driver installed and also nvidia hd drivers installed, should i remove the nvidia audio drivers?

My suggestion is don't remove the drivers. Windows will use the drivers needed and leave the rest alone until needed.
