If you are running XP: start > run > type:mmc > ok > a blank console root should appear > file add/remove snap-in... > add > device manager >add > local comp > finish > close > ok > now the console root should have the device manager in it. open the device manager by double clicking it. scroll down until you find "sound, video and game controllers' then if there is no realtek.... click on the icon on the task bar that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass. it will rescan your computer for any driver, chipset changes and Plug and Play. etc a blank audio device should appera or the realtek device should appear. it will either reload itself and you will need to reboot or right click it and select properties ant then select the "driver" tab in the new window that will come up. try "roll back driver" and if this does not work select update driver and follow the wizard, you said you did not have the disk but the driver is still stored locally so don't panic.

Cannot get sound on any outlet port

Download and install Media Player Classic and use it.Are you using onboard audio or an add-on card? Make sure that the BIOS is set for one or the other (in other words, the internal audio disabled when using an add-on card), and installing the latest drivers for all.

Hi, I just reformatted my hard-drive because I wanted to start over fresh on my computer. However my computer detects no audio devices, I was wondering if there were any drivers involved with these...

if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers if you dont have a motherboard disc you will have to download the drivers
Realtek AC'97 audio driver package. The package includes: driver setup program, drivers for Vista/Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit editions.
hope this helps
Update your embedded sound from Realtek to the latest AC'97 codec.
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question mark? Right click to reinstall drivers or you can download the drivers

My audio on my pc is not working says no audio output device found i have a hp paVILION A6177C DESKTOP RUNNING WINDOWS VISTA

The problem here why there's no audio device detected on your system , the software or driver for the audio device is not installed on your computer system, so that's what we're going to do.
I will provide you here a link for the direct download of the audio device of your computer, so just download the audio driver and then once done you need to install the software. This is a executable file so once done downloading run the software to automatically install it to your computer and finally restart the computer to complete the installation.

Here is the link for the audio software that you need.

Failure of realtek audio driver installation

I had the same problem while installing a GeForce 7050M-M motherboard w/AMD quad core processor. I kept getting the message "install Realtek HD Audio driver failure!!" message. After many hours of futility, and reading possible solutions on the internet, I got it working this way: First, go into your cmos setup and disable your onboard audio. Then after you boot up, go into 'control panel' and then 'add/remove programs' and remove any program associated with high definition audio. The Realtek programs that I had tried to install were in mine, so I deleted them. Then I clicked on 'start' and then 'search', and put this in the search window: 'hdaud' for high definition audio. Several files came up, and I deleted them, which put them all in the recycling bin. I didn't empty the bin, in case I screwed up something and had to restore the files later. I then rebooted, and being probably overcautious, let the computer come up and then went back into 'add/delete programs' to make sure there were no HD audio programs in there, and then double checked for any files by going back into 'search' and searching for 'hdaud' files like before. A file somehow had appeared there associated with Realtek, so I deleted it. Then I rebooted, and at reboot went into cmos setup and enabled my onboard audio. When the computer came up, the 'found new hardware' message popped up. When you see this DO NOT let the computer look for the driver. Hit 'cancel', and load your Realtek audio drivers from your setup disc or from whatever location you have them in. You may see the additional message about the driver not loading and your sound not working right, but ignore it, it's because you clicked on 'cancel'. Just let it finish it's install from your setup disc. When mine finished successfully for the first time now, and it prompted me to reboot because of the new drivers just installed, I actually got the 'shutdown' sound out my speakers-the first peep I heard out of them since I started this adventure early yesterday. When the computer came up, lo and behold I had sound. I was about ready to give up and go out and buy a sound card, but stubborness prevailed. So in short review:

1. Disable your onboard audio in CMOS
2. Go into 'add/remove programs' and delete any and all HD audio programs
3. Go into 'search' and type in 'hdaud' and delete those files that come up.
4. Reboot and double check 2 and 3 above.
5. Reboot and go into CMOS and enable your onboard audio.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.

Realtek audio speakers crackling..

To fix this:
Go into realtek, go into every device and go to format, and select the lowest format (should be 16 bit) that should lower crackling SUBSTANTIALLY.
Then right click the speaker and click playback devices, now right click your speakers and click properties, then go into enhancements and click immediate mode and then click disable all enhancements. Works every time.
