HP Elite 8000 Realtek HD Audio drivers and Software problems
At our school ICT like to do pod casting, sound recordings etc. We have a newish ICT suite with HP Elite 8000 Desktops with Realtek HD Audio chips intergrated to the motherboards with multi function front ports, e.g. the ones which you can insert either a microphone or another set of headphones. Well anyway the Realtek software takes away the windows volume settings for microphones and forces the user to choose which device they have plugged in and also forces them to calibrate the microphone before they can start using any recording software within windows. This is becoming a night mare, no teacher expects a class to sit there for 10 minutes and calibrate recording devices. The operating system is XP Service Pack 3. I know in the past you can just get the .inf files etc and point device manager to these for the drivers. If anyone has these or any suggestions that would be great, also if anyone has a vbs script to reset windows sound levels on login for all users via gpo that would be even better.
