Windows 7: Realtek HD audio manager missing playback device in advanced settings

Realtek HD audio manager missing playback device in advanced settings

As the title says

When going to the settings of my Asus Realtek HD Audio Manager , i am not able to set different audio to come to different ports, such as one audio to Spekers and different audio to headphones.

I need this option to play one sound on speakers and the other sound separeted from the speakers to play on headphones but of course both being connected to my PC. I tried a few reinstals but nothing seemed to work and i usually just made it more difficult.

Both devices CAN transmit the same sound if i click on AC97 Front Panel but i have yet to figure out how to play different sounds . . .

Any information regarding this?

Note... i had to install asus realtek manager because anything from their official website made my audio manager ( that window in the screen ) not open up ( more details here : Realtek hd audio manager does not open Solved - Windows 7 Help Forums )

So my question is , can i set up 1 sound to play through the speakers and another sound to play through the headphones. Both devices are connected and labeled as speakers , they are both counted as ONE.

EDIT: I now listen to myself while on microphone. . . So somehow i messed up even more, i have a microphone set up and when talking in it or tapping or whatever i hear it on my speakers. The worst part is, when i disable the microphone in the playback devices it STILL PICKS UP SIGNAL..... the only solution is to disconnect it. Help :|
The last thing i did before having this issue is activate stereo mix, make it as default and click on it to listen to stuff but nothing worked so i turned it off and disabled it back again. Now i hear my microphone EVEN if i disable it or mute it in playback devices.... if i click to listen to it i hear a higher pitched version of me and the lower quiet version of the same voice... basically i hear myself twice ( almost un noticeable since its the same input device.. )
No i dont have another mic set up or internal microphones.

First, Windows will only allow one default audio playback device and one source. There may be a 3rd party application that allow what you want to do, but basic Windows does not.

You need to mute the mic in the Recording section, not Playback (If its even listed in playback).

Stereo Mix is usually what is set as default recording device. If you want to record audio from the internet you need stereo mix.

The microphone was set to listen to itself in the realtek hd audio manager ( which i'm pretty sure i didnt do.. ) so it's fixed now

So about the sound, there is no way to have my headphones register as headphones plugged in on front jack and speakers connected on back jack ?
i'm pretty sure the advanced settings of hd audio manager has those ( as i've seen them in various pictures and examples on google ( Example : ) ... i don't have this, and my realtek does not look like that ... so is it a wrong version or is it "that" 3rd party app you were talking about.

what is the hardware ID number of your realtek audio device in your motherboard, Frikster?

example > hardware device ID number on my Hewlett-Packard Pavilion m8417c desktop PC is using "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0888&SUBSYS_103C2A6C"

This is what the Realtek HD Audio manager control panel app looks like on certain (not all) ASUS motherboards like my friend's ASUS M5A78L-M LE/USB3 board (using a Realtek ALC887 audio device with hardware ID "HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0887&SUBSYS_10438576" - speaker setup only but no microphone connected):
