Recently I had sound problems which I think are now fixed (refer to Sound issue (Conexant sound driver)
for more info)
What I did was i went to device manager, uninstalled the conexant high definition audio AND drivers, and restarted my computer with the hope that it would install some newer version drivers from conexant.
When I restarted, it started to download drivers, from microsoft instead of conexant. And was just wondering if this would affect my computer in any way (having microsoft sound drivers instead of conexant that came with the laptop). The conexant drivers supported dolby digital surround sound (built into my computer), and the microsoft doesn't but it has stopped my sound issue (as far as i know).
So my question, would my packard bell laptop be affected if it has microsoft sound drivers instead of conexant thta came with the computer. If not, where can I download microsoft drivers if I ever need to upgrade/reinstall them? And is there any way i can get microsoft drivcers that support dolby surround sound like my old conexant drivers? Here is my driver info:
if anymore info is needed let me know
