    1. What is your Realtek model exactly, HD Audio 7.1, 5.1, AC'97 ?
    2. Control Panel > Device manager, right click Realtek > Properties, does it show any errors?

    That is a network adapter driver....

    You may want to look for newer drivers in Windows or the Realtek site, or your manufacturers site.

    Use the free program called: S.I.W. (System Information for Windows). Run it and it will tell you everything you need to know about your hardware including the hardware and drivers.

    Click the link below and download the portable or free-standing version and run it.

    SIW Without Installer (English-Only) [​IMG] Download

    After that go to: Realtek to download the correct driver.

    Unimodem full-duplex refers to your modem for dial-up connections. The high definition audio is your Realtek driver area.

    Go here to download the Realtek High Definition Audio Codecs and install them. It will ask for a system restart after the install is finished then you'll see an amber or orange speaker icon in the system tray after the restart. Click on it to open up the Realtek configuration window and test your speakers from there.
