My speakers won't give sound (Realtek HD Audio)?

To start off, I'll tell how it all happened. First, almost 3 months ago I bought a PCI Wireless card from newegg, it came in a week later and it was defective. I returned it for a new one and got it another two weeks later (Very slow shipping). It was working, but when I installed what was on the disk it came with, my HD Audio Manager went wacky and said I was plugging in and out audio devices. I just clicked OK on all of them. So I got good speeds but I realized I hadn't any audio coming from my speakers. The realtek HD audio was set to default playback device and both ports on the audio jack were securely in. It simply wouldn't work. A restart didn't fix it either. So I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers for the PCI Wireless card a couple of times, restarting time after time just going through troubleshooting processes in hope that one would fix it. So during the process, after the first time of uninstalling I found the card defective again only giving 0.8Mb/s download speed just as the first defective card. Over the whole convoluted process I hadn't fixed my speakers, my mouse drivers broke so I had to put it into a different port, and I have another defective PCI wireless card. So my question is, how would I fix my speakers? The speakers are in my monitor and what it's usually named is Realtek HD Audio or something but now it's named High Definition Audio Device. Are there any fixes I can try? Or is more information needed? Thanks!

I have a laptop running Windows 7 and I have run into problems with the Ethernet port.? Answered

I have tried to connect with several different wires and I have tested those wires and the ports in my router with another computer and they all work. I went to the device manager and saw an error for my ethernet port. The driver is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and the error is:             "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" My guess would be that I disabled one or more services required for this driver but that is only a guess. If someone could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

PC Card to USB mod?

Okay, just signed up and I need a little help with something! I want to know if it's possible to wire a wireless PC card up to a usb cable. I know it sounds random but Linux doesn't like my wireless card (Realtek 8187b) and I've got a couple of wireless pc cards spare that Linux would like. Only thing is my laptop has an Express card slot. I'm looking for a no/low cost solution. Cheers!

Computer not playing sound? Answered

Whenever I play music out of my computer, a thing keeps popping up called Realtek HD Manager saying that I've plugged something into the microphone socket! I've checked both of them (Front and back) and nothing is in them! So I disabled by going: Start > Run > 'msconfing' > Startup, then disabling it. It told me to restart my computer for the changes to work, and when I booted it up again it had no sound, so I turned it back on and rebooted the computer and it still dosen't work! And yes, I have checked all the obvious things like if the sound's muted. Thansk, Flannel UK

My computer is on the fritz part 2

So one day my speakers, scanner, and internet stopped working (about a week ago). I fixed the internet by reinstalling the driver, and I'm too lazy to reinstall the driver for my scanner. But what I'm most concerned about is that my sound doesn't work. I've tried reinstalling the drivers a couple times, and it works perfectly, except it doesn't work, lol. It's fine until it says restart my computer, after it does it it boots up like the driver didn't do anything. I'm using a realtek driver, I've both tried installing it off of the cd that comes with my computer and downloading the driver straight off of their site. I NEED SOUND!!!!

Assistance with Windows Vista, why can't my computer recognize analog outputs/sound does not work?

Okay, I have an HP Pavilion a6110n desktop computer, running Windows Vista ,Service Pack 2. A few days ago, I had the power supply fail, and had to replace it. After that, I noticed that my computer would not play any audio through any of the 3.5mm analog outputs. When I go into sound manager, the computer tells me that the speakers/audio outputs are not plugged in, even though I opened the case and confirmed that they are plugged into the motherboard. In addition, the onboard Realtek HD Audio Manager will not recognize any output other than the digital output, even though most of the analog outputs are integrated into the motherboard itself, and not a separate audio card. I have tried Googling to no avail, as none of the solutions I have tried have worked.  I have tried updating drivers, adding and removing hardware, uninstalling and reinstalling Realtek, even updating the BIOS, all to no avail. I have tried calling both Microsoft, and HP, and they are both unable to help me without me having to pay them. Since my computer is so old anyway, that would not be worth it. Basically, is there an easy solution that will not require me rebuilding my computer? If there is not, I won't even bother. Also, I've tried disabling, then enabling the speakers, from the sound manager, but that does not work either. If there is any possible way to help me with this, i would appreciate it. Thanks in advance. PS I've also included the two audio manager screens I get, hopefully showing the problem better. Edit: I've tried looking at this in Safe Mode, and it gives me a Code 45, basically telling me that the software is physically not plugged in. I'm seriously wondering why my computer can say that, even though the hardware in question is part of the motherboard. Also, if this were a problem, where would I look for blown capacitors?

My WiFi connection wont work on my desktop but it does on all my other devices.

On my desktop I can't seem to get internet no matter what network I try. I've tried giving myself a mobile hotspot and even that doesn't work. When I try and connect it either says no internet, or connected, even though I can't google / do anything with internet. Occasionally I will get 5 kb of internet for a second and then nothing which occasionally lets me load a quick google result before telling me I have no internet. I have tried rebooting / restarting the router, so please don't tell me that's the answer. All my other devices can connect just fine so I don't know what to do. Computer Info: Windows 10 Realtek RTL8811AU Wireless LAN 822.11ac USB 2.0 Network  I have both VirtualBox and VMware installed, but I have used them for a long time with no issue.

laptop queries?

I have had my gateway t-16 for about a month now, so no ive decided its time to start considering modifying it. i just recently got a new battery for it, only $47 off ebay. but ive got some issues with this laptop. well, not really issues but things i have a problem with. first off, the laptop has a phone line modem, im never going to need it, so im wondering, if i remove the modem card from inside the laptop will it continue to run properly? second, there is the Realtek wireless card, for barely average wireless connection distances, the card gets extremely hot, i dont have a thermometer, but i can easily say its hotter than 50 degrees, my cpu is at 41 degrees right now and the card is a lot hotter than it is (to the touch) third is the cpu itself, it can be a low enough temperature to turn off the fan, but thats quite rare, the fan is almost always running. ive been thinking about taking advantage off all the space in the cpu area and make a heatsink assembly that goes on top of the heatpipe, right above the cpu. the cpu is only at 40 degrees right now because im not doing anything, sometimes even low requirement games will shoot up the temperature to 70+ degrees, in just a few cases (less than 3) the laptop has shut itself off because the cpu reached its thermal limit, 95 degrees. i cant even watch the ben heck show without worrying about the temperature, and no form of cooling pad helps, cpu cover on or off. the cpu cover is also a problem, there is no direct intake for the cpu fan, the cover has no vent right there, just a spot where the plastic is a bit higher, otherwise the air for the cpu is drawn from the motherboard side, where the air is already warm from the chipset, im currently running the laptop with the cpu cover off. the ram gets warm, but its not out of any ordinary operating temperatures. last and certainly not least, is the apparent lack of bluetooth in my laptop, the case is even designed with a space for a bluetooth module, and there is a connector on the motherboard for a bluetooth module, and if i had one, i would put it in. what really bothered me is the fact that the gateway service staff had insisted that i was seeing things when i saw the bluetooth coneection, and that there was no way in the world that my laptop could have internal bluetooth. this ticked me off, because they designed the laptop and they dont even know whats inside it. i could definitely work around the heat problems if there were some really small blower fans, but im not sure if such a thing exists. also, why would my wireless internet turn off (and not turn on) when i plug in a usb flash drive?

My desktop is conected to my home network but cant access the internet?

Yesterday my desktop was working fine and could conect to the internet no problem, today it will connect to the network but has no internet access. My laptop and phone both connect and have internet just fine. I have reset my router and modem and that didnt help. I changed it so my Ip addess and DNS where not automatic and that did nothing. Currently it is set back to automatic and it is giving me no default gateway and the IPv4 Address is not what it should be. Like i said earlier, i have no idea what could have caused this as it just happened when i turned on my pc this morning.   Here is my Ipconfig /all from my desktop (the ipconfig /all for my laptop is below) Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.
