Windows 7: Less bass and quieter

06 Aug 2010   #1

Less bass and quieter

Hey guys, yesterday I updated my Realtek drivers since they were outdated and after I installed them I had restarted my computer and it said I successfully installed the new drivers, but I don't have the Realtek icon anymore on my taskbar nor in my control panel and the sound has become significantly worse. Before I updated the drivers I had it set on "rock" on the equalizer in the settings and the bass was fine and the sound was good. But now there is a significant loss in bass after I updated and the overall quality of the sound is just way worse than before.

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

In the Device Manager you can Rollback drivers. Display the Properties for the RealTek and click the Driver Tab and then the tab to rollback the driver. Somtimes new drivers are buggy. I'm holding off right now with my ATI Radeon video card as the new drivers have problems.
