Windows 7 Ultimate x I'm running Win 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 on it. If I choose to customize my taskbar and place the Realtek Icon on the taskbar it disappears after a few seconds. The only way to access it is to go to my C Drive, Program Files, Realtek and manually open it from there.
The Realtech icon then appears on the taskbar; however, if you hover the cursor over the icon for one or two seconds it disappears. If I'm lucky enough to open the Sound Manager application before the icon disappears I must right click on it and select "Open". It cannot be opened by a left single click or double click. Once the Sound Manager window is open it displays nothing.
The Sound Manager window can be closed only by using the Processes tab in Task Manager and shutting down the process itself. It cannot be shut down by clicking Realtek in the Task Manager Applications tab. Dell has tried on three occasions to fix the problem, to no avail, by taking control of the laptop. Realtek Audio has been uninstalled from Programs and Features and then been reinstalled, and the drivers have been uninstalled and reinstalled from within Device Manager.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled the OS on four occasions while attempting to fix the problem. I did two reinstalls using the recovery partition, one clean reinstall from the Dell provided OS installation DVD, which contains the OS only no free third party applications that came with the laptop and one reinstall from the Dell DataSafe Backup DVDs I made upon receipt of the laptop.
A new sound card was installed at Dell's Texas repair facility just last week. The problem remains unsolved. Thank you in advance for your time and any assistance provided. Windows 7 Ultimate x64 CPU 1. Intel Core iQM 2. Backlit Mouse Microsoft Wireless; 2.

Non-Dell either do not work or do not work correctly. You can consider this, if it gets to that point. That should be the best place to get an answer. It makes no difference.

I was finally able to once again open the Sound Manager after several hours of trying. I have attached a screenshot showing what I see when the Sound Manager is open. I have no access to any of the settings. I thank everyone for your time and assistance. I appreciate it very much.
I'm simply going to have to live with the problem. At times when I click the tray icon, I see a full panel of options e. Sound Effect, Equalizer, Volume, When I went clicked on Realtek, it shows it was blank. It gave a message as to why, I forget what it was.
When I go sound, it shows that's it's working I have attached a screenshot. Sound only comes out of the front L and I just installed the latest R2.

Actually, Realtek prefers that I use the driver from Dell's download page because of Dell's customization of the Sound Manager. It doesn't really matter because the problem remains as none of the drivers eliminated the problem. Dell has escalated my problem concerning this issue but they've done that twice before and I never heard from them again so I don't expect to hear from them this time. The motherboard was replaced a few weeks ago and the sound card was replaced last week.
My only remaining option is to ask Dell to send me a new hard drive with the OS and third party software already imaged on it, although I don't know why that would help me in any way. What I find hard to understand is that I can find no evidence of anyone else having this problem. The audio is working fine and earphones work fine when connected to the laptop. I simply cannot find a way to keep the icon on the taskbar, the Sound Manager either won't open or opens to a blank window and the Sound Manager window cannot be closed unless I manually shut it down in Task Manager.
The hardware has been replaced and the software has been replaced. Thank you for your prompt reply. Find More Posts by fireberd. Originally Posted by fireberd I do a lot of support on the Dell community support forum, but mainly Desktop Hardware.
The driver from Dell does not help. I have already used the Dell recovery partition via F8 on two occasions. It did not solve the problem. I appreciate your time and assistance. Originally Posted by fireberd I havent' checked your post on the Dell forum this morning, but Jim probably responded to you. Hey fireberd, I've spent hours and hours searching online and through several forums. I appear to be the only one experiencing this problem and Dell after three attempts via live chat, a motherboard replacement and sound card replacement seems unable to solve the problem.
I'm almost ready to ask Dell to replace the laptop. Similar help and support threads. What Happened to my Realtek Sound Manager?? Contact Us Legal Privacy and cookies.
