Poor Audio Quality in Windows 7

Hello forum,

I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate(32-bit).I earlier had Windows XP Professional 32-bit OS and it was working perfectly.Since i installed Win 7..the quality of the audio is pretty bad(not so sharp,clear).I have an on board realtek audio chipset(mobo from intel).
I checked the speakers,the were perfectly ok.Any Help would be much apprtiated.

Thank you

The latest driver can be found here. Realtek

The Realtek HD Audio manager has a 10 band EQ and Loudness Equalization, so that you can improve the sound.

You might also make sure that your speakers are set to CD/DVD quality
