  1. Ok.
    So I have a Realtek AC'97 audio driver which is built onto the system. For the past month now, I have been receiving difficuties with my speakers and headphones. I do not beleive its anything to do with the speakers or headphones, but, all i can hear from the headphones is crackling, when the computer is turned on. I have tried reinstalling the driver, updating it. I have done everything. I don't know what else to do.
    Do you think i need a new sound driver?
    Thanks in advance,
    James Bell

    ignore that guy, he's spamming. Try to upgrade the sound driver from the manufactors website. They might have an updated driver for you to try!

    Thankyou, but i have tried that, twice actually, and the downloads took about half an hour each.

    Wow cykablja...wait til the mods get to you. A quick delete of post and permanent ban should set you straight.. :haha:

    Bell1313, it would help if you tell us the rest of your computer's specs, especially the motherboard's model + brand. Maybe we can find some drivers you havn't tried yet...
    It sounds like you have eliminated the possibility of bad drivers though

    Before anything else, make sure that your volume control is not muted :D

    Do you have Realtek software that comes with your drivers? For me, I have Realtek HD Audio Manager on my taskbar which controls volume and everything else involving audio. You must select the correct device that you plug in (select headphones for headphones, select line out for speakers, etc.) on the Realtek audio manager.

    Can you try your headphones / speakers on another computer and confirm they work?

    Another possibility is that the integrated audio on your mobo has ceased to function correctly. If you can get a sound card, install it in your system and then check if the audio from the sound card works.

    Good luck :)
