Realtek HD Audio with no sound

I have tried searching all the forums and all of the internet for a solution and I've finally decided to just go ahead and ask away here. I can post my computer specs if necessary but for now I think just my motherboard (ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0) is enough.

The problem that I am experiencing is that I have installed the Realtek audio driver over and over again and I just doesn't work. I do not get sound but however the program realizes that I have plugged stuff into and out of the jacks and also the green bar in windows sound is playing when there is supposedly supposed to be sound.

I have tried reinstalling the driver, and also clean installing my whole computer but still no luck. Whenever I uninstall the driver it just reinstalls some High Definition Audio Driver from windows instead of Realtek if that helps anything.

    Yes mine currently looks like that already and I made sure nothing is muted..still no sound.
  3. any sound with headphones out of the front ports or rear ports?? there are settings in the sound manager to mute the rear ports if headphones are plugged in.

    no both the front and the rear ports do not output any sound. I have made sure that is not a problem with my speakers because they can play sound from other devices so its not that.

    The problem started when i plugged my headset in and it is USB so it started downloading/installing the driver and i unplugged it because I plugged it into the wrong USB port (to save time because that USB already had the driver). The weird thing is though is my motherboard has RealTek onboard but when i went to go change the source from windows, I noticed that I was seeing a different picture for the driver. Somehow, I had it ingrained in my head that I was using VIA HD audio drivers and I found files of this on my computer for this so this whole time I was using VIA HD audio even though I had RealTek and ever since RealTek has installed on my computer by default from windows its been broken.

    UPDATE:

    "Hi, did you ever get this resolved? I have the same problem and I can see output levels in Sound manager and my speaker are set to default but no sound from them or the front port either."


    I just fixed my issue. Forgot this computer has a Sound Blaster Audigy and was plugged into it and it had been working fine but assuming a windows update killed the Audigy drivers so I moved to the onboard ports and it's fine now.
  6. go to control panel>hardware and sound>manage audio devices then click on you default device
    you will get realtek in your controller information click properties in controller information the change settings and then roll back driver under drivers..this worked for me hope it does for you

    I created an account just to thank you for this. My audio hasn't worked since Windows 10 update a few days ago. This was the solution, I just had to roll back the driver. You're the man! Thank you!
  8. I'm extremely glad that I found this thread. I've been working for at least 10 hours since I bought my laptop. I experienced the same problem. If only I knew that it was that simple to fix.... But thanks a lot for your time to help us out!

    Best regards
