    G53sw Sound Driver problems

    Hey!

    I got this computer back from RMA, and they did a factory restore, and everything was great, until I was installing my sound card drivers.

    The Realtek drivers just won't install.
    I keep getting an error.
    Am I installing the right drivers? I'm pretty sure I am. Was going off Chastitys Thread.

    Because of this. The THX studio thing doesn't pick up any sound devices, and that's installed but I can't use it, cause it says 'No supported devices detected." Probably cause the real tek stuff isn't installing.

    The Asus Live update thing tends to freeze when updating two drivers for something also.

    Helpp

    My sound sounds like crap.
    I'm pretty sure what's installed now is just some regular windows sound driver. :[
    It sounds horrible compared to what it used to before the factory restore.

    Hi

    The Realtek drivers your mention are you trying to update that?
    When you attempt to install it, try to: right click on installation file and choose run as administrator perhaps that would help.

    But you got to be sure that your installing the right Realtek drivers.
    Look at Asus Support and download the realtek driver from there (if you not already have done that.)

    Asus Live Update is a buggy utilitie and unstable so it may not work sometimes and crash. So I would recommend you to uninstall all bloatware from Asus and only use software that is good

    The best thing to do is download drivers with an early version from Asus support site, and then upgrade so no drivers would not work as it should do (if you install the latest driver right away :P )

    Hmm, that sounds weird :S That driver should be pre-installed on your notebook when you set it back to factory restore.

    Do you have your cd driver? On that CD there is a Audio driver, perhaps you could try that one

    EDIT: Have you installed a lot of new sofware or things like that after you got it back from RMA ? If no, I would reinstalled windows 7 (set back to factory settings, again). Just to see if that RT is still gone or the workshop you had it in, has somehow managed to uninstall that driver.

    Does Windows recognize the Realtek chip? That is, when you go to Device Manager, it is listed there as an unknown device?

    When you are in device manager, click on Realtek High Definition Audio Device, go to driver, see if it's deactivated, if it is, activate it.

    You could also right click on the speaker icon on the windows bar, click on playback devices and see if speakers is set as standard.

    He has no listing for the Realtek Device.

    @ Stallasaur: You can check to see if it's there and disabled by checking View -> Show hidden devices.

    Ahh my bad Thought High Definition Audio Device was the same as Realtek.
