Disabling Realtek HD from Startup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if disabling the Realtek HD Audio Manager from startup will actually do anything? I disabled it before, nothing changed, but I had no way of testing if it actually "interrupted" my 5.1 standard settings. If it's not needed for startup, I want to do away with it. I have no special settings set.

You can do away with it as long as you have the drivers for the hardware installed,

I stop it from starting up in boot,

I appreciate your help. Thank you!

Yeah, it's just a fancy GUI for controlling your sound card's driver. It's not necessary for normal operation, though it does make it easier to make setting changes. But you can just launch the control panel later for that if need be.
