Is it my Realtek chip that is causing BSODs? Or should I just reformat?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ever since a while ago the audio jacks on my motherboard have been having contact problems, basically they get disconnected/connected very easily with just moving the speakers connectors a little tiny bit.

I've yet to replace the onboard sound chipset by a sound card, but for now, I'm having another problem besides that.

It seems everytime I connect/disconnect the speakers connectors a bit to make it contact right, the PC BSODs with a Realtek driver error (I know the file that appears in the BSOD).

This didn't happen until a while ago, even after I started having the contact problems.

Should I just reformat, or is this something really hardware wise (the BSODs)?

Yeah that's the Realtek driver. Where you streaming? What are your speaker config? Is it on 2.1?

Realtek drivers got a bug. If you set your speaker config to 2.1 it BSOD or crashes. The fix is to get a stable version of the driver.

This is a stable version without the but.
http://downloads.guru3d.com/Realtek-HD-Audio-2.35-Driver-download-2408.html

If it works then you can try a newer driver after that. But first try that driver to see if that's the issue or a other problem.

I was having Realtek BSODs as well. It turns out they were caused (from what I've gathered so far) by me forgetting to disable onboard sound after installing my sound card.

I say you completely uninstall the Realtek sound drivers. Use DriverSweeper after you've uninstalled them to get anything like a library file that it didn't get. DriverSweeper is fine, don't worry. After that, reinstall the newest drivers.

If that doesn't help, you can try a reformat.

My onboard sound is Realtek. After uninstalled the Realtek drivers and disabling onboard sound and updating to the latest Creative drivers, the BSODs have stopped.

Thanks guys, I'll try installing those drivers when I get home and see how it works...

And if I'm not mistaken, I'm currently using 2.59, or maybe 2.60, not sure. But I think it is either of those.

I also do happen to have my system in 2.1 mode, since I don't have the rear speakers connected right now.
