Where the heck is my Realtek HD audio manager?

It's not in my control panel, I've reinstalled drivers 3 times from 3 different places, I looked in the Realtek folder for an exe that I'm pretty sure is called RAVCpl64 and found nothing. I found the aforementioned exe in my driverstore folder, but when I run it NOTHING HAPPENS!

Help, please.

I forgot to mention I'm running Win7x64, and am using a custom built PC with an Asus M4A77TD board.

It should be in system tray. Try uninstall it successfully, then install it again. Installation is corrupted.

It's not in there, and it's not in the list of programs when I go uninstall a program from the control panel.

Dont you see any uninstall option when try to install driver? Use 3rd party driver uninstaller and use ccleaner soft to clean your windows drive.

Make sure onboard audio is turned on in your bios. If it is not activated, the realtek software often doesn't load.

Strangely the same thing happened to my system last night, after running combofix and rebooting. I checked Realteck folder, which was still there, and msconfig confirmed that Realtek HD Audio Manager is arranged to start on boot. Then I simply rebooted the system again, and it came back alive.

I suggest you to open msconfig, and see if Realtek HD Audio Manager is listed on boot. If it is, toggle it on and reboot. If not, go to Asus homepage and download the driver and install again.

Well apparently all the Realtek drivers on Asus' website are gone and there is this thing called "VIA" instead. I installed that, restarted, and now there is a shortcut on my desktop that's called HD VDeck, which looks like their version of the Rt HD Audio control panel, I think.

Yay?

I'll see if I can get this to do what I want.

Look like you install wrong driver. your audio chip is VIA and you need via audio driver.

Well if you read the OP, you would know that it isn't there.

I figured out the problem already, though, now how do I close this?

I finally found this. I went into the realtek folder in program files and opened the largest size file and it opened the audio manager. once there youll see a small folder icon in the top left corner just underneath "device advanced settings" click that and it gives the disable front panel detection option. everything works fine now filename was RAVcpl64 theres also an earlier version labeled RtkNGUI64
