Realtek ALC662 + Windows 7 here.
I've been everywhere, from BIOS, to new, old drivers
, equalizing, desequalizing, been to every menu on sound I could find.
And certainly deactivated that "conversation setting" supposed to bring your volume down when in calls.
Yet, my sound is terrible. I'm pretty sure the "awesome" new sound processing system on Windows 7/Vista is screwing me over.
1.When listening to music, I can reach, generally, the 40% volume. Anything above that is dead. I can roll to 50, 70, or even 100 and there will be no change.
2. The music is playing. If a MSN sound, for example, is played too loud, my music will forcedly play at a lower volume at that moment. That's valid for EVERY sound. If I play a louder youtube music, my mp3 will be lowered. It's awful. Everytime the dullest random sound is played, my music will go down.
3. Obviously, the music is awful, as even louder parts in the own song are enough to push this "volume down" thing on the whole playback.
Is it a driver
issue? I know a lot about the cracking sound some people experience, so, my solution is also to wait for the correct drivers, like them?
I have seen more of that problem around, than mine, but still...
Or is there a setting I'm missing that keeps on dragging louder sounds down?
Thank you all for the time...
