    There are 2 options , either the settings are wrong or the realtek audio service keeps crashing on you.

    if it's settings....see below (1) , if it's the service , you may need to re-install the drivers but a quick fix is to open the realtek control panel that will re-start the service.

    (1)
    Open the Control Panel the click on RealTek HD Audio Manager then in the window that opens select Speakers.

    In the right hand column under digital or analog, depending on your settings, you’ll see your mic and headphone inputs represented by small circles.

    If nothing is plugged in then they should both be greyed out and unavailable, plug in your headphones if they are not already plugged in.

    The headphone circles should now be accessable, by that I mean not greyed out.

    Right click and select “Connector Retasking” You’ll get a dialogue box pop up that says “The current connected device is”, Select “Headphones”.

    You will also see “Enable auto pop up dialog when device has been plugged in” check the box next to it and click OK.


    Your speakers should now cut out when your headphones are plugged in and you will get a dialogue box allowing you to change the setting should you wish.

    First, if you do not have the correct RealTek sound driver, that is the first item. If you only have the generic Windows installed "HD Audio Codec" you need to install the correct RealTek driver.

    The Realtek HD Audio Manager, in many systems, has an option for speaker/headsets. On the systems with the option, you can have the speakers mute when you plug in headset or do not mute the speakers when the headset is plugged in.

    In mine, the Blue color "Device Advanced Settings" in the upper right of the panel is where the headset/speaker option is found.
