Firstly a big hi to everyone...

I run a system having dual os ie Vista premium and Windows 7 ultimate.
Primarily it is an HP pavilion desktop.
So when i boot in vista, the realtek hda manager is enabled automatically on startup and icon is visible in notification area.
Whereas when i boot in win7 it doesn't start automatically.Every time i have to start it manually from control panel.

Welcome to the forums!

i had the same problem...when i installed the drivers for the soundcard after a clean install of windows 7 , the OS loaded drivers on its own. But when i installed the vista drivers for the card via manual install, the sound died out a while later while i was gaming. When i uninstalled it, after the reboot the sound was back to normal. Uninstall the drivers from Windows7 and allow the OS to detect and install the hardware.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

Install the Vista driver on Win 7, and make you sure that the realtek manager is on the start up list of your PC.
