Default Get Back to Realtek Audio, not ATI Audio

Today i got my HD4850. i installed it. with the drivers and such. not paying much attention did the recommended install. So it installed the ATI HD Audio Device. but my monitor doesn't have speakers.

So..

How do i get back to have it be the original Realtek Audio instead of the ATI High Definition Audio Device?


Its prob a easy fix but I am all thinked out. so any help is appreciated.

just go to the device manager, or the control panel sound options and disable the ATI audio device.

In Windows 7 you just right click the speaker icon and click Playback Devices, right click the Realtek device and set it as default. In XP you have to go to Control Panel and Sound (or Multimedia, I forget) and select the default audio device from a drop-down list and apply. It is OK to have more than one sound device installed at a time, you don't have to uninstall the ATi one.

I had the same problem, I had to disable the ATI HD Audio by going into Device Manager, and then I had to renable the Onboard Audio through the BIOS.
