10. Your Realtek HD Audio card plugged and unplugged problem has been solved.
Note: This trick is works by disabling the front jack panel and make the back panel as the default jack panel. You SHOULD plug your audio cable (Line in, Line out (speaker), and Microphone on the back panel because the front panel has been inactive. This is because the problem is come from the front jack panel.

Thanks buddy. I was struggling to find a fix for quite a long time. Thanks a lot, finally, i get rid of the messages.
Your version of the audio driver is old. Some things are different now. Also, saying “click on the yellow icon” doesn’t help at all since other versions don’t have a yellow icon. How about using the NAME of the icon instead of what colour it is? I also have to state that I don’t think shutting off all the advanced features of the board is a solution. The odds are that just one of the things you did solved the problem, I highly doubt you needed to do them all. Thanks for the info though. I will try these one at a time and keep the one that works. By the way, your twitter/facebook like/tweet thing is blocking the text on your page.
So if the audio driver is old and my Mobo manufacture only has the audio driver, what should I do?

I would like to ask which verson of realtek driver is this one, beacause i dont have the Device Advanced settings button
Ğäyäň Šaňgēēţh Mąđušnkã
Realtek high definition audio driver (3.30)R2.63
wow Thanks! it works..
I have slightly different settings given that it’s a newer version of the Realtek HD Manager but setting them to what was stated didn’t seem to do it for me. I’m runing Windows 7, 64 bit, on an Asus U46E. The mic doesn’t seem to be working at all.
If I uninstalled RealTek all together, might that do the trick or do you have any additional suggestions?
I don’t have that option “Disable front panel jack detection” What should i do?
so thanks i solve my problem using this tutorial.
Hy,my problem with Realtek HD Audio Manager is that :i don’t find icon”yellow folder” on the realtek hd audio manager,i can’t have posibility to get signal to spdif out coaxial jack,the spdif cable is not detected,i made update from realtek official site to the new version 2.71.Something is happened during the instalation i think,because in the settings tab of the manager is apear in bottom left corner instead realtek logo is asus logo.I have a ASUS P5LD2-X/1333 MB,i using Windows 7 Home Premium SP1,front panel is HD audio,front and back panel jack input’s are detected.All work fine just spdif out is problem.I hope you can help me and i thank you in advance.
I have also the same problem it just keep popping up that you just plug/unplug a device from audio jack. Updated drives, disabled notification from front panel jack detection but still the problem has not solved. Hoping that Realtek should come up with a solution.
Deactive plugged and unplugged notification by uncheck “display icon in notification area” option and click “OK”. – the stupid tutorial ever, that just disables realtek icon in task bar
this advice is pish!!!!!
I don’t have a yellow icon. I’m using an Ausus laptop, so I just have an analog audio jack at the front and that’s it. There’s no yellow icon or “device advanced settings”, by that matter. The audio just plugs in and out intermittently. It’s really annoying. Please help.
I don’t have a advance setting
it is really helpful! thanks!!

A lifesaver. Some suggested turning off the popup message, but that doesn’t fix the underlying issue and I found snagit wouldn’t render the video correctly. You correctly identified the cause and now all works. Many thanks
This is not a solution of real problem, it just disables notification but sound is still interrupting. Sorry but this is lame.
here is my version, working good with this tutorial
