  1. Realtek High definition Audio not working


    I am at my wits end trying to get my speakers to work on my Dell Inspiron 5675.


    The speakers are a set of Dell AE215 with subwoofer.

    Speakers are directly connected to woofer, which itself is plugged into the orange port on back of pc.


    I have tried other ports but it makes no difference.

    I can hear through headsets through front jack, but that's all.


    All Dell and Microsoft troubleshooting diagnostics says everything is working fine, but as I cant hear anything obviously everything isn't fine!


    I have flattened the pc, done a clean install from a factory image from dell.

    Realtek is recognised in control panel and device manager, there are no errors, and apparently it is working correctly. But all I get is white noise!

    I have uninstalled the device and drivers numerous times trying to get something to work, but I am on the verge of giving up!


    have I missed something or is it yet another hardware failure caused by Windows 10 updates!

    :)

  2. Realtek High Definition Audio not working

    First of all, the Realtek High Definition Audio Device did not automatically reinstall after uninstalling and rebooting. I had to go into Add Legacy Software and select it to install. The Device Manager crashed while installing it, which it always does.
    Upon starting it up again, the Device is there, but with a warning sign next to it indicating it is not functional.

    Second of all, when I did the rest of the steps, the Driver Manager told me specifically that the drivers for Realtek High Definition Audio Device are up to date.

    Thank you for trying to help so far btw

  3. NOT WORKING-Realtek audio drivers and Microsoft High Definition device

    I've seen some videos which just tell you to update Realtek HD driver to the Microsoft driver. Sometimes it works for a while then it stops working. I just go into Device Manager>Sound, video and game controllers> Realtek High Definition audio (right click)>
    Update driver software> Browse from my computer> Let me pick from a list of drivers on my computer> High Definition audio device. It should update.

    Realtek High Definition Audio not working

    Hello,

    Earlier today, my Realtek High Definition Audio stopped working entirely. I have an X555LA 64 bit ASUS laptop.

    I have done pretty much everything recommended in other threads:

    - Rebooted.

    - Right-clicked Realtek High Definition Audio in Device Manager and selected update my drivers. It tells me my drivers are up to date.

    - Uninstalled it in the Device Manager, went to the Realtek website, and reinstalled the most recent driver update. Rebooted.

    - Went through Windows Update. It tells me everything is up to date.

    I have done everything I can think of doing and my audio still does not work.
