    Windows 8


    This did not solve my problem Speakers work fine but when I try to use my Beats, the sound is distorted and almost sounds as if it's underwater, UNLESS I specify L or R only on the output.

    Yes I do have the jack plugged in to the right port, and I tried to disable the microphone but neither worked.

    Any thoughts? I have an Asus Q400A Windows 8 laptop.

    my pc errors out and says it cant be installed.

    what should I do?

    Win8/64 bit/ 3MBram L3 Cache
    aspire v3
    intel core i3-3110m
    intel HD Graphics 4000
    500BG mem

    ok I have version 6.0.1.6873
    but this is what my enhancement tab looks like now... I have no effects....Why? where'd they go? and how do I get them back? they were also missing in the previous driver - that is why I did the update...

    Hi Lucido,
    Welcome to the forums, uninstall the Realtek drivers, re-boot and let Windows install it's generic drivers and see whether it helps. The attachment is while using generic driver.

    EDIT: I have just installed the Realtek driver and it seems OK.

    Hi
    Thank you for your quick answer
    I try yours tips but windows don't detect analog back panel Jacks as speakers, only TV hdmi audio output (if it plugged) or spdif (if it unplugged)
    and yes enhancements are presents
    To detect speakers I need install realteak drivers (or intel audio drivers) and enhancements gone
    too bad

    The R273 RealTek drivers, which are for both Win 7 and Win 8/8.1 change the look of the RealTek HD Audio Manager.

    Here are the Screen Shots. The second screen is the option screen and this is accessed by the "gear" icon in the upper right of the main screen. I assume mine shows "ASUS" as that is the motherboard (P8Z77 LE Plus) and the original drivers were from ASUS.
