Windows 7: Realtek HD Audio Manager Completely Missing After Clean Install

15 Aug 2012   #11

Windows 7 x64

I was wondering if anyobody could help. My fiance had his computer reformatted yesterday and since then the microphone part of his headset won't work. When he goes into his recording options his mic isn't there, it just says there are no drivers installed. He was using Realtek HD Audio Manager before it got formatted and since he got his pc back he's been trying to reinstall the manager but to no avail. He tried installing drivers and even tried the link posted above but still can't get it back. He has Windows 7 x64 OS and it's a Dell computer that he got back in 2008.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Lissi!
Did he try going to the Dell site and looking up his computer model and OS, and seeing if they have drivers for the Realtek HD Audio Manager for it? I assume by reformatting, you mean cleaning off the hard drive and starting over, like the clean install I had to do? My audio manager disappeared too, but luckily, going to my computer brand's web ste, and downloading the drivers for it worked. I have it back. I don't know any where as much about computers as the people here, so I'm sure if your fiance still can't get the audio manager, someone here can talk him through it, as they did me. Good luck!

Realtek Audio Manager

I have kind of the opposite problem; I have the software installed, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I click on the file or the icon, and nothing happens.

I'm loath to uninstall it, just in case I can't get anther copy (it came with my Samsung laptop).
