Hi, I reinstalled Windows 7 64bit a few days ago so i could put programdata and the Users folder on a different harddrive. Now when I installed Realtek again, my monitor speakers dont work. The case is, when i delete the drivers, my monitor speakers were recognized, but when they're installed again, my monitor speakers aren't recognized. Before when i went into the sound devices to set defaults, i had more than 4 options to select, now i have 4 1 of which is the hdmi port that isn't being recognized. Please help and I probably forgot to add something. Also the reason I need the drivers is because my headset won't work if i dont have them.
Double click the speaker icon in the lower right hand of the desktop, this will bring up the mixer, or single click to bring up the volume control.
But in case the volume is missing, corrupted, or the audio is otherwise non-functional:
you check whichever audio was installed:
click start, control panel, add remove programs, look at the list...
which audio software is shown on the list? delete it, restart the computer.
now visit the motherboard manufacturer or computer manufacturer's website
look up your computer drivers by model number
download the latest audio drivers, save on the desktop...
turn the antivirus off,
if you have multiple security programs installed, turn them all off
(your driver may not install if security systems are turned on)
now load your new audio driver, restart, turn the antivirus back on.
