I had a Radeon HD 5750 that I was using the Realtek HDMI Audio driver with so I could get an equalizer in the sound settings.

I just bought an R7 260X. I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 64-bit and installed the Catalyst drivers. Then I installed the Realtek driver (R2.75) but the AMD HDMI driver remained in use.

I tried manually switching the driver to the Realtek one in the device manager but that resulted in a BSD at boot (Stop 0x000007e). I had to use a restore point to boot up again.

Am I doing something wrong, or is the Realtek driver no longer used for AMD graphics cards?

No realtek is working normally on my computer. I would check with Intel and use their driver update tool. Also run Windows Update and look for a relevant uninstalled "optional" or "suggested" update.

I'm running an AMD system, but I will check the if there are newer mobo drivers. I did run all Windows updates including optional ones.

I do not, but isn't that for a soundcard? I'm not using a sound card at all, just the HDMI audio device on the graphics card.

No...I have no sound card. Check the Realtek folder in control panel...also msconfig has it listed. Maybe you have to choose on-board/intergrated sound in the bios.

You could also check the REALTEK downloads. Plus there are many links using Google....' Realtek HD Audio Manager'.

I think I might know what the problem is. I'll check when I get home.

Forget it. I'm just going to give up on my dream. I was right about the mistake I was making. I was trying to install Realtek sound card drivers, when I should have been scrolling down to download the ATI Graphics card drivers (R2.70).

Even so, the drivers installed but did not work. The sound control panel said the device was not plugged in and the Catalyst Control Center said my display did not support sound. I tried various things, but nothing worked.

In the end, I reverted back to the HDMI Audio drivers included in the Catalyst drivers and got sound, but unfortunately those crappy drivers don't provide an equilizer like the Realtek ones do.

 

So much for my upgrade. I got this card because my old Radeon was dying, and now I'm losing functionality that I used to have.
