Audio Drivers

In reply to: CPU front audio jack not working

Just install audio drivers perfectly according to your current system status.
This will surely solve your problem.

Re: Realtek HD Audio

In reply to: all drivers installed

On my Windows 10 PC I find Realtek HD Audio Configuration as a Control Panel applet (it's not under Sound, but it's it's own applet starting with R, so a little bit higher in the alfabetic list).
Isn't it there with you?

Check drivers version

In reply to: all drivers installed

Just check that the drivers version you are using is compatible with your system or not. By the way, is it windows 8 or windows 10?

- Can you explain what you mean with "is fine" if apparently it isn't?
- Open the case and check the connection of the cable from the jack to the motherboard. Is that all fine also?
- The obvious workaround is a 10$ USB audio 'card' connected to one of your front USB ports (if those are connected ...)

front Audio jack has no hardware issue

In reply to: Re: front audio

the audio is jack is working fine it doesn't have any hardware issue i guess there is some kind of driver issue in my pc
and i already have a usb sound card but the sound quality is not worth and has no bass, so can suggest me any driver or something to sort it out please

A little history lesson.

In reply to: CPU front audio jack not working

Up until a few years ago, detection of something plugged into audio jacks was not available.

If your hardware supports it, the driver from the laptop or motherboard maker is required to enable this.

Working properly in windows 7

- You're sure you installed all Windows 10 drivers after upgrading?
- It stopped working the exact day of your upgrade?

Re: apps menu

In reply to: all drivers are installed

Whatever the apps menu is, it's unlikely to contain a driver. And what is a "driver manager"?

Moreover, audio should work with the driver that comes with Windows (although it might offer less options).If it works on the audio on the backside, I don't think it's a audio driver issue. So as a work around, use that, possibly with an extender cable, so it's easier to reach.

audio manager

In reply to: Re: apps menu

i meant the realtek audio driver is installed but i can't find the software in programs to open realtek audio manager and when i try to search it in start menu "realtek audio driver" nothings shows up
and earphone does work in backside audio jack

Re: audio manager

In reply to: audio manager

It's not in the Start menu, it's in Control Panel. Easy to find if you list the applets alphabetically and look at R.
And note that a driver isn't a manager.
