How to find out if the sound card is by Realtek

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

this may be a stupid question, but how do i find out if the sound card is by Realtek? I'm trying to find a sound card that's not made by Realtek so that I am able to play Battlefield Bad Company 2 without sound problems.

Go into the Device Manager, select "Sound, video and game controllers" and it will tell you there. Not all Realtek sound will have issues in BC2 so... You might as well try it out first.

I have tried the sound card on BC2 and it has a weird echo and stuttering effect on the game. That's why I want to buy another sound card and i'm wondering if its possible to check if its by Realtek without buying it

Post a link to the sound card?

Also if your using a dedicated sound card disable on board sound in the bios.
They maybe conflicting with each other.

It is highly unlikely that a stand-alone sound card you buy will have a Realtek chip; their primary market is on-board audio that is embedded into the motherboard.
