    Realtek audio ports are all kinds of messed up


    My motherboard is a Fatal1ty B450 Gaming K4, I just bought it last week. When I refer to things that happened "in the past", I mean with Realtek audio on other motherboards.

    I keep speakers plugged into the back panel and I have headphones plugged into the front panel. This was never an issue in the past, I could switch between them at will. Now, however, they're both bundled together into one "Headphones" output, and I don't have the ability to split them up. The back panel is used if nothing is plugged into the front panel, otherwise the front panel is used. There should be an option in the Realtek control panel to split them, but there isn't.

    The sound control panel window lists the jacks as recording devices, not playback devices, even though it's recognizing the jack as a playback device. I don't really know what's going on.

    Rear audio ports always show as “Not plugged in”


    I've been having this issue with Windows for about a week now which NONE of the back panel/front panel connectors (speakers, microphone) are being recognized by Realtek audio manager. The only audio input/outputs that are showing are the optical.
    Troubling shooting steps I've tried (none worked):

    • COMPLETELY uninstall all Realtek drivers/reinstall
    • Tried using windows drivers
    • Reinstall Windows 10
    • Upgraded chipset driver
    • sfc /scannow
    I called EVGA and asked for RMA but then I booted into a Ubuntu OS and all the ports work FINE. It must be a problem with windows 10.
    Can you think of any other troubling shooting step I can try to fix this annoying issue? Thanks!

    After looking in Device Manager under Audio inputs and outputs, I don't see any speaker/microphone listings, only the optical crap:

    The Ultimate Realtek HD Audio Driver Mod for Windows 10

    I had the realtek error when using the installer, so I did these step and It Worked

    1.Go Open up device manager
    2. Go under sound,video, and game controllers
    3. Find Realtek High Definition Audio
    4. Right click and hit update driver
    5. Browse my computer for driver software
    6. Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer
    7. Click Have Disk and hit browse
    8. Click on the Realtek HD Audio mod folder and look for win64
    9. Click on the HDXRT4 and click ok,
    10. Click Next and Yes
    After it is done, restart the PC

    You should be good then and also make sure before doing these steps that you have driver enforcement disabled.

    The audio (Realtek) on my Lenovo 320S is not working - both microphone and speakers

    Hi,

    You need to troubleshoot the Audio Driver, follow these troubleshooting steps:

    1. Go to Device Manager>Sound, Video and Game Controllers.

    2. Right-click Realtek High Definition Audio and Update Driver Software.

    3. Browse My Computer for Driver Software.

    4. Under Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer, select Install High Definition Audio Device.

    5. Once it’s finished, repeat steps 1-4, and then install the latest RealTek High Definition Audio Version.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Kind Regards,
