I just bought a Gateway laptop (Win 7 64-bits) with a Realtek high definition. I listen a lot to classical music and I am disappointed with the sound quality of the card.
I listen the music with a good Seinheiser headphone. The problem is not the headphone because I switched back and forth between the new laptop and a 6-years old Compaq desktop and the desktop sounds much better. On both computers, I have the equalizers set as flat and no audio effects.
The problem on the laptop is that the sound sounds "muffed", with no treble and no color. I checked the drivers
and they are the latest.
I am pretty sure that this is a good quality card and the sound should be good. What should I try?
