Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio Manager not in Control Panel

A very long shot this.

Go back into Control Panel, click the View By drop-down list and choose Icon View then check if there's an icon for Realtek HD Audio in the alphabetical list.

There may be something in this user manual that will help: http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/services...-05%5B1%5D.pdf

I'm just wondering whether it's worth going into MSCONFIG and disabling Realtek Audio (if it shows) and just using the Windows sound system.

I would, but I use Realtek HD Audio Manager to separate output channels. I have 2 jacks, one in the front and one in the back. I use the front ones for Skype (listening and talking) and the back one for my speakers (usually to listen to music through the speakers whilst talking on Skype through the headset).

I tried the other solution you mentioned but with no luck.

Just had another look in Device Manager and I've noticed that there's a item under Other Devices called "Audio Device on High Definition Audio Bus". When I click update drivers, it installed as "High Definition Audio Device". There's is now 4 "High Definition Audio Device"s as well as 1 "Realtek High Definition Audio".

Does this have any relevance?

Well, it proves that the Realtek drivers have been installed, but it doesn't explain why there's no icon in the Control Panel.

You could right-click the device in Device Manager and try to update the driver from there or uninstall the device, and then restart your computer to see whether Windows puts things right for you.

I'm afraid I've tried that too. :S Maybe I should re-install Windows...

In light of no fresh ideas that may be the best option although it somehow feels like a defeat when a re-install is all that's left.

If that's what you do decide we can keep the thread open so that you can let us know the outcome.

Just sorry we weren't able to find a solution for you.
