Windows 7: Realtek Hd Audio Manager missing

07 Oct 2011   #1

Realtek Hd Audio Manager missing

I have a problem locating my Realtek Hd Audio Manager, I have read through many posts such as updating your drivers, uninstalling then re-installing, restarting your computer, make sure to check my BIOS, check in control panel, things like that.

And in conclusion I think I have 2 possible explanations, the first one is that the current driver (updated) doesn't support the realtek hd audio manager? (I read on someone else's post that he had to rollback/downgrade his drivers for his audio manager to appear.

My last solution is... that I don't even have the Realtek Hd Audio manager chip on my motherboard? Possible Nvidia Hd Audio? Because I have 4 Nvidia Hd Audios, and only 1 Realtek.

This is what i'm using, - SONY VPCF116FX/B NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 16.4" 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 500GB HDD 7200rpm BD Combo NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M

You have a RealTek - those HD audio's are from your video card's HDMI/Digital inputs. I've had this happen to me as well. I basically had to remove the drivers and delete the hardware from the device manager. Reboot and let it find the new hardware then install the newest drivers.

So I should delete every single driver then let it update?
