Windows 7: Realtek Audio not detecting analog inputs

26 Feb 2015   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

YES, YES, YES! Solved!

Thank You, BrockH and jdneff!

This is copy of them posts, and it work's! :) (I changed just the first one instance).

"I think I have a solution. I was having the same issue. Only digital outputs were showing as options, and analog outputs were greyed out showing no device in and wouldn't auto-detect. Perusing the internet, I finally found a forum suggestion that worked. Full disclaimer here, I know editing your registry has it's hazards, and I essentially just followed someone else's instructions and trusted them (well, plus others had said it worked). Please do so at your own risk. Here is the post from jdneff at the HP forums (I would rather he get credit, since I'm just passing on the solution):"

*** I was having quite similar problems and was finally able to resolve it.

Something seems to be completely borked with the realtek drivers regarding automatic jack detection.

After attempting to use the method described here (easier if you can) Vista and Realtek Front Panel Audio not working – Solution freeweelee, I discovered that I was completely unable to shut off the jack detection in the Realtek audio manager (no folder icon).

For those of you who (like me) have no folder icon, I managed to find another way to disable the jack detection.

Using the registry editor, find all instances of ForceDisableJD and change the value from 00 to FF.

After making sure I got all of them, I was able to reboot and everything works fine now ***

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I know this is an old thread, but I recently started to experience the exact same problem as the person in the first post:

I removed the current drivers using add / remove, rebooted, then installed the latest drivers from Gigabyte, then I tried Realtek directly, and finally the default Windows audio drivers. I also tried removing the drivers with driver sweeper, directly from device manager, etc. and installing a fresh set of drivers. Additionally, I disconnected the front audio jacks from the motherboard in case that was causing a problem. Windows detects the sound card and there appears to be no problems in device manager.

I've gone through every available option in the Realtek sound control options, but I'm at a loss. I have a USB headset that works without a problem, but I can't get these darn analog speakers to work. Any advice? Before anyone says it, 'set default device' is grayed out as an option for the speakers.
I ended up purchasing an audio card, bacause I thought that the issues were in the integrated audio card in my motherboard. This didn't solve the issue.

After that I found out what BrockH suggested for solution and tried to disable front panel jack detection. This gave me tiny improvement and now for the first time in about two weeks my speakers say something. Only now I'm getting audio only on the right hand speaker. This is very frustrating.

windows 10 32 bit
I have SOUND now realtek after windows 10 upgrade

I followed an older post from 2012 From Bunno and it worked!! I went to the control panel (his words below)
In the realtek audio manager (mine shows up in the system tray as a little orange speaker icon) there is an unlabeled icon that looks like a folder. It doesn't even look like something you should be able to click on, and what the heck does a folder have anything to do with sound, your audio devices, or front panel jack detection? Nothing, that's what. You'd never know that if you click on it, there is a single checkbox option within to "Disable Front Panel Jack Detection", but there is. Go in there, check the box, and Realtek will no longer rely on this broken detector to populate your Microphone and Speaker panel tabs, and you'll be able to get sound again. I know some of this was hinted at in other posts, but there it is.
As soon as I clicked on that folder and changed the setting walla I had sound!
