Issues with onboard Realtek ALC888

Hello all,

Setting up a computer using my old components, and I cannot seem to get the onboard Realtek sound to work. It keeps seeing "HDMI Digital" as not being hooked up, but I cannot seem to get it to use my speakers. I have tried several drivers from Realtek, and nothing seems to be getting it to see and use my speakers. Before these parts were put in storage I had no issues with the drivers. I did a clean install of Windows 7 pro 32 bit onto the system. Any help would be wonderful!

  1. In addition, I have tried uninstalling the drivers to let windows re-detect, and it keeps reinstalling drivers for HDMI Digital sound, of which I have none.
  2. Finally figured it out, turns out the radeon card i have was taking priority over the onboard card, had to turn it on manually in BIOS. hope anyone else that has this issue finds this fix!
  3. Is the HDMI on board or on a graphic card?
  4. Glad u got it.

    I had a similar problem getting the 5.1 sound to work on my HP a6245n working.
    The motherboard is: Asus IPIBL-LA

    I went into the BIOS and:
    1. selected PCI-e x16 for the video card (I also have a radeon)
    2. set the onboard audio to ENABLED (rather than auto)

    problem solved.

    thanks for posting the resolution
