    octane,

    Thanks for the link. I'm downloading now. I will install this afternoon when I get home from work. I'm not going to hold my breath, though...last two updates didn't do anything. I am also running into the 5.1 issue with my speakers, i.e. not getting sound through three of the five. When I do the "test run" through Realtek's HD audio program they work, but when I use iTunes I'm only getting stereo sound out of the left and right speakers plus sub. It seems this is still an issue as well. I will run the new 2.39 driver to see if that does anything and get back to this thread. Thanks again!

    Still happening unfortunately with 2.39... and here's what Realtek's support told me in email:

    Dear Sir,
    The newest driver 6.1.7600.16385 is Win7 inbox audio driver. Not Realtek audio driver.
    Since inbox driver has the same issue, we consider it is not driver problem.

    The pops and crackles might be caused by some application or device drivers.

    You can test the sound with pure Win7 OS ( do not install any driver).

    Best regards,
    PC-Tech

    Holy crap i love you all!!!


    I cannot express my undying gratitude to all of you for your help in solving this matter. The 5898_PG281_VISTA_TurnOff_PullMode_Upd drivers worked like a charm. Everything is fixed and back to normal. No more choppy flash videos, no more stuttering in games, no more popping crackling sound, and I can finally listen to Pandora and surf the web again without wanting to rip my hair out!

    I had tried everything I could over the past couple months, from messing with voltages, overclocks, underclocks, a new cpu cooler, drivers, bit rates, you name it. I was even about to purchase a sound card for my aw9d-max board, which now I know would have solved the problem by avoiding realtek drivers, but I am glad I did not spend the 80 bucks... yet. I think this whole issue was a combination of windows 7 64 bit, DX11, and the realtek drivers. I notice that in the name of the update there is "TurnOff_PullMode" and then in the 2.39 version notes also something about "pull mode". So I am assuming this is what realtek is fighting with atm. Anyway I just wanted to throw up another host for all those that need the file. Thank you soooooo much once again! I will be buying a new audio solution soon to avoid dealing with realtek all together in the future.

    Sounds awesome - whenever I try to install this driver, however, Windows doesnt load. It gets stuck on the Welcome Screen.

    I am done with realtek.


    So turns out it fixed some issues but caused a few others. Namely in Team Fortress 2. I am going to buy a new sound card to replace my audiomax card that came with my motherboard. So long realtek, it's been... real. I will let you all know if this solves my issues completely.

    Just installed this...it seems to have reduced the crackle, but it's definitely not gone completely and has brought back the crackle in windows media player, which I had gone for a while

    5898_PG281_VISTA_TurnOff_PullMode_Upd is not a fix. It only reduced the crackling sounds. Any ultimate fix on this? I'm using Realtek Soundcard on my laptop.

    Hi, I've been having this problem ever since I purchased my acer desktop several weeks ago. I almost feel like just sending it back to acer and telling them what I think. The problem is usually triggered by a game or screensaver or something but it goes away after a restart. So I'm having to restart often and I can really only use my computer for internet surfing because of this horrific sound popping crackling and skipping. That's a waste and not what I was expecting obviously. I've tried about 50 different things at least and none of them work. I have a usb creative sound card coming tommorow and hope this fixes the problem, this is absolutly unacceptable and I feel sick because of this.

    Aaron,

    This problem is not limited to any computer make nor 64-bit Win7, I get the exact same behavior on a custom built machine running Win7 32-bit.

    Next time it happens do me a favor, go up to the taskbar and open the "Realtek HD Audio Manager".
    Mine literally blinks on and off changing screens while at the bottom it repeats... "loading audio devices"

    I can't tell for sure but it looks like the Realtek driver is losing either the mic or line Input device and resetting. It's the reset that's causing popping, crackling and skipping.

    I just downloaded the (turn_off pullmode) drivers posted earlier, they seem to be working but who knows, I'm liable to play a youtube video and it will start up again.

    If it starts again I'm going to try a couple ideas.. if I have any success will post back.
