Built In Equalizer?

Is there a built-in equalizer in Windows 7?
I'm looking to make adjustments, but there aren't any settings when I pull up the volume controls, etc.
I have a
C-Media AC97 Audio Device

Not with that audio chipset I believe. What kind of EQ problems are you having?

Well, I would like to adjust the bass and treble when watching movies online, or streaming tunes.
Windows Media Player is all fine and dandy when watching stuff I own, but for You Tube, and Sirius Radio, I'd like to adjust the audio.

There is a graphic equalizer in WMP. Open the little arrow under "Now Playing" and go to "Enhancements".

But is there one that can be used "system wide"—sort of like what WMP has to offer, but for everything?

I have some settings in my Realtec Audio Manager (see picture). Maybe you find some in your audio manager.

No, mine definitely doesn't look like that. It's pretty sparse. (I'd like one like you have, though...)
It probably won't work with this card I have...

Depends on the Chipset, but...

There should be some options when you right click on the audio icon, choose Playback Devices, then highlight Speakers (or the output of choice) on the Playback Tab, next, choose Properties, then Enhancements, to see some of the built in mixer settings. Also, on the Levels Tab, depending on Soundcard or motherboard manufacturer you may have more or less Audio Editing Settings.

Just an FYI, you might want to keep an eye on the date. this thread is more than 4 months old, so I suspect it has been fixed.
