Exasperating Realtek line out problem

By frankkaeb

  1. I have a laptop with an MSI board running Realtek HD Audio and WinXP 32-bit, with 3 front panel jacks. When I plug in my desktop speaker cable into the lime port I get a message from the Realtek Sound Manager asking what device I plugged in. I click on the “line out” option, then OK, and the speakers work fine.

    Every time I reboot, the speakers stop working and the Sound Manager has reverted back to the default “line in” option for that jack, forcing me to re-install the speakers again.

    The Sounds and Audio Devices in Control Panel is set up properly for Two Desktop Speakers. Drivers are up-to-date.

    Any help?

    Do you have loaded the latest sound drivers for the that device?
