Windows 7: Realtek hd audio manager does not open

Realtek hd audio manager does not open

NEWEST UPDATE
I fixed my stuff. the realtek hd audio manager open now.
I fixed it by going to asus and downloading the realtek audio driver for my motherboard. That simple.

Wish i knew how to play separate sounds tho, 1 from speakers 1 from headphones but i guess i'll just ask in another topic .


I fixed part of my issue . I have sound but now my realtek audio device does NOT want to open and i do not get a pop up when i put a new device in ( headphones, mic, speakers or similar ) . Sound works just fine and everything is good but now i have this issue with it not opening and that other weird issue where i have a lot of devices in the playback devices of the sound options ( REFER to the end of this huge text )

UPDATED. I DONT KNOW HOW TO HIDE THIS TEXT BELOW ME, OR PUT IT IN SPOILER TAG OR SOMETHING, OR SMALLER LETTERS BUT I BELIEVE IT'S IMPORTANT. I FIXED ONE OF THE ISSUES BY INSTALLING THE OTHER REALTEK FILE FROM THE MENU.MAIN ISSUE IS ABOVE THIS GREEN TEXT
Hi. Get ready for a lenghty post detailing what i did and how i think i F ed up.

I wanted to have sound coming in my headphones which are connected on my front panel and also have different sound coming to my speakers which are connected on the back panel. I tried messing around in REALTEK Hd audio Manager , tried making the jacks separate but it did not work, they were both registered as Speakers . Both could play the same audio and i had to make one of them main source so that the other will disconnect ( example, i play a song, i plug in headphones and both headphones and speakers play the sound untill in the audio manager i click that the new device which got connected is headphones, then the sound only plays on headphones and vice verca )

Someone suggest i try Audio Router. i tried it ,not much luck so i was told to update drivers. Went to the official realtek site, downloaded drivers ,installed rebooted and now my hd manager did not want to open. Sound was still working fine

I read online to update my driver through device manager, sounds, realtek.
In my sound options of the device manager i have
NVIDIA High Definition Audio
NVIDIA Virtual Audio Device (wave extensible) (WDM)
Realtek High Definition Audio
I clicked realtek, update, browse, let me pick, picked one of the two options ( currently trying the second one ) , PC restarted and then i had no sound.

When opening the playback devices, speakers are still set to default device, it shows green bars , but it does not play sound on neither headphones or speakers.

in my playback devices i have a lot of stuff such as
NVIDIA Output, disabled by default
NVIDIA Output, disabled by default
SMB2330HD, disabled by default, this is my monitor which is also a tv with speakres, it's disconnected
SyncMaster, this is also my tv but this is Enabled .

There 4 are Nvidia High Definition Audio
but Speakers and Realtek digital output is Realtek High Definition audio
