Realtek HD Audio Troubleshhooting?

Hi people!

I've installed driver supplied with motherboard.
I've replaced drivers with a downloaded version.
Problems remain the same.

Playback and recording work.
Questions:

1. Signal in mic or line... isn't it supposed to sound through speakers as well? How can I monitor what I record?

2. The recording controls are all disabled except the main.
Also, need to mute the input I don't want instead of chosing what I do want. Is this normal for this driver? 'Cause if so this realy sucks :-)

    On the input side of the device there is not a option for Stereo Mix. i have CD and Mic/Line but no other options. There fore I can not record using my Roxio program. I need to know what the deal is and how to correct it. Thanks for any help.

I had the same problem with both my Biostar 550 and Gigabyte P35 motherboards, both of which use Realtek ALC888 HD audio. Its got lots of fancy eq and effects but a crippled record mixer with greyed out sliders. I emailed realtek and they responded that its a Mixer Record type audio mixer only and follows microsofts HD audio specification...so blame microsoft or Realtek...or both. There is NO workaround for this.

The solution is to use a sound card with AC97 audio or if youre lucky enough to find a newer one with HD audio and a less crippled mixer. Problem being the industry seems to have embraced Realtek who seems fixated on offering partially disabled mixers. I purchased a Diamond Xtreme 7.1 sound card from officmax for 30 bux. They also have a 5.1 version for 20 bux. The main rec output is set to a fixed level but the individual rec. sliders ARE enabled. Recorded audio ends up being about 10db low but you can always boost it n post production using a recording program like audacity (which the sound card comes with - there are newer versions of audacity available so dont use the included version). - The only way to get FULL functionality
- ALL sliders is to find an older AC97 audio card. There are good ones and bad ones so it may take a few. Try the Diamond Xtreme card first and if you dont like it you can always take it back. This link is for the $30 verson. http://www.officemax.com/omax/catalog/sku.jsp?skuId=21080508&searchString=diamond%20xtreme&category_Id=null

Dont hesitate to send Realtek a "concerned" (not nasty) email about this. Hopefully If they get enough...they MAY take it seriously...but I wouldnt cross my fingers.

Good luck,
Dave

The hd audio implementation for this realtek 888 actually uses the the output mixer for controlling the volume of inputs, hence the recording controls are useless and locked, the rear pink and rear blue etc is what you need on the output mixer. It's quite confusing and a lot of things don't work well with it, like the winamp tv plugin etc

I hav downloaded intel dg31pr audio driver for windows xp but while installing it appeard as "this driver version is older than the system one". please solve my problem...,,,


Well mahatab9, you have not told us if there is any audio driver installed on your computer or not. But the error message clearly stated that, you have an audio driver already installed for your motherboard model. So, if the driver is not properly working or you just want to upgrade it, you should use Intel Auto Driver Updater for best result. This will show if there is any updated version of your installed drivers are available or not. To do this, click on the following link to automatically identify and update your drivers and softwares.
Automatically Update your Driver
Now click on "Check Your System for Latest Updates" to start analyzing your computer. This will show whether your system requires an upgrade or not.
IMPORTANT: This utility is for Intel Motherboards only.
But still, if this utility doesn't show any upgrade to your audio driver, then you can manually download this driver as your motherboard INTEL DG31PR supports the Realtek HD Audio driver only for best response. If you have already installed any other audio driver than Realtek, please uninstall that and install this one. To download this, click on this following link:
Download latest Realtek HD Audio Driver
This installation will remove any previous version of Realtek and install the newest one automatically.
Hope this helps, Regards,
Mrityunjay

No audio devices installed


Did you try another available IO/SLOT on the motherboard? If so, go to the realtek website and download latest driver for that model number. Install audio card then update the driver using the new version. I hope this helps.

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.
6. Load your audio drivers from your setup disc-DO NOT LET THE COMPUTER LOOK FOR A DRIVER THRU THE 'FOUND NEW HARDWARE' PROMPT-PRESS CANCEL.
7. Reboot and hopefully, enjoy the sound.
