Realtek HD Audio Issue - Sounds flat
I just recently upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7. I have always used Realtek HD Audio drivers because they provided the best sound for what I was looking for.
However, with the recent upgrade to Windows 7, the sound is very much different, giving sort of a flat sound to it.
Before upgrading, I would use the Rock equalizer for the best sound in my opinion.
Now in Windows 7 it sounds rather flat, but that is with all settings. I have tried turning the equalizer off but that does not give my favorite sound either.
Is there a way to get my old favorite sound from Windows XP?
Oh and I am still using the same headphones. They are 5.1 Surround Sound, Turtle Beach Ear Force HPA2.

First thought, does your PC vendor (or motherboard) have Vista/Windows 7 drivers for your RealTek sound? You didn't fill in the "My System Specs" so we have to guess or talk in generalities. In many cases you need vendor supplied drivers (especially Dell's) as non-vendor sound drivers may not work or work correctly. I do a lot of support on the Dell forum and we find the Windows "HD Drivers" also leave something to be desired.
