Bad sound quality( after installing Realtek latest driver?)

I just installed the latest driver and now the sound qulity is notso good as before even i ddint change anything in my realteck manger. I dont know if it counts but I my windows is installing automatically another driver HD audio device but I dont think that matter since I have that disabled and even uninstalled once just to see if affects the quality but nothing.

here some capture




My system specs are on the atachment

About the sound quality I will try to make a descriprion even my english is not 100%

its like my system is trying to reproduce an rough coarsed acousting sound and my sub sounds are distorted with a tremble. plus anoying scarts and squeakies, screechings when u play for ex a instrumental track.

Un check speaker fill, set sound effect to room, enable room correction, set the speaker distance and set the rear and sub speakers to +10 db and leave others at 0db.

Hello StefaNafetS and welcome to Seven Forums.

Was your computer having any audio problems before you installed the updated Realtek driver? If it wasn't having any problems I'd go back to the previous driver. You can use a previously made Restore Point.

System Restore

Or, you can roll back the driver.

1. Open Device Manager.
2. Locate the device that you want to roll back the driver for (probably under sound, video and game controllers.)
3. Right click on the device's name or icon > click on Properties.
4. In the Properties window click the Driver tab.
5. Click the Roll Back Driver button (If it is disabled, Windows 7 does not have a previous driver to roll back to.)
6. Click the Yes button and the previously installed driver should now be restored.

@ Invader thanks but it gave only some minor chnages ( and btw the default 4.56 m distance is not a proper one?)

@Marsminar Im glad someone have briefly responded to this but I cannot say im glad Im on this forum cause from start u know someone has an headache and doesnt know what else to do ))

I installed the updated driver from Realtek site just as an hint for making a relatively new game stop crashing.
You could be surprised but I did restore my sistem previously with some days before this upgrade but the audio quality was still very crappy ( I know the difference cause I listen music everyday ). So I I laredy done that rstore I cant make another since the other past restore points weer deleted. The roll back driver is disabled obviously cause Ive done that restore and doesnt have a previous driver to roll back to. HELLLPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!

4.56 meters is like 15 feet away. I don't know about you, but my speakers are only 3 feet away and it makes a big difference for me.
