Recording trouble with onboard Realtek HD

Hi

I have recently bought a new asus P5G-MX motherboard with realtek onboard HD audio. My system runs Win XP SP2 on core 2 duo 2.00 ghz, 1 Gb ram.

When I record from my mic., I get a very faint (practically no) recording even on screaming into it.

I updated to latest realtek drivers and Microsoft UAA, and tried every option available in the audio properies and the audio manager of the realtek driver, but nothing changes. Even installed a fresh OS, but of no help. Tested the mic on other computer, it works fine. Moreover, all the options except master volume are grayed/disabled in the recording volume settings.

Please help...

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.

Realtek HD Audio Troubleshhooting?


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
