Hello, I can't recall what exactly I was thinking of but by accident I deleted all the realtek sound manager files. I have tryed to google to find help (or download possibility) so far without success. Does anyone have an idea?
And: Oh, yes I am a complete amateur when it gets beyond average user knowledge.

Did the little Realtek symbol appear in the system tray (usu lower right corner) or as a gadget or anything?
If so, you need to enter that and define your speaker setup, and then how your speaker jacks are assigned to the outputs.
It may depend on the motherboard, but on mine when I change speaker configurations, I SOMETIMES have to UNPLUG the speakers and then re-plug them to get the sound setup program to recognize them. It isn't consistent. Sometimes I can configure them without unplugging and replugging, and other times I can leave them plugged in and just switch which speaker is assigned to which output.
There's also a sound test module under the "Audio I/O" tab in the sound manager.
Thanks for your answer John!
I downloaded from Realtek as Meat_of Evil told me to. When finished ( I plaaced it under my music files) I click to instal....it shows InstallShieldWizard..click to finish....nothing
no Icon no symbol in system try or else where...
please help me
I would have downloaded all the Realtek drivers and support programs from the motherboard manufacturer website. They can be mobo-specific, or provide enhanced features only if downloaded from the mobo manufacturer.
If you want to go that route, then remove the drivers you installed (or go back to a prior restore point (but review what going back to a prior restore point may do to other programs or data/settings. If this problem is all you've been working on then it shouldn't be a problem going back to a date before you re-installed the drivers downloaded from Realtek)). I advise making a system partition backup using Macrium Reflect Free Edition or DriveImageXML before doing so. Both freeware programs may be found at majorgeeks.com and other download websites.
You should also end up with this program (or similar), which I believe is the HD audio control panel.
On my version there is a "radio button" that must be selected to have it show up in the system tray (although that should be the default upon installation).
I am a total amateur with a little knowledge about PC ...so most things you wrote is like SF to me
I dont have a jounger person here that might help me so I`m afraid i have to call someone and let him do all needed to have sounds back.
Thank you so much John...but alone I can`t do much
That's great news. I hope it does what you need it to do.
But if you need /expect HD audio (don't know the details of your setup...which I really should have asked for earlier) I think AC 97 won't provide it. I had assumed you were using HD audio (e.g. for Blu-ray, and other high-definition video/audio sources).
There's also a difference between AC97 and HD front panel connectors, in case you were using those. That might also cause what seem like audio driver issues and might be why AC97 works when Realtek didn't.
