Sound distorting after win7 install

Hello guys,
I recently had my computer formatted and upgraded my os to win7 ultimate. Since then i have had a problem with my sound being distorted and i cant seem to do anything to get it back the way it was....

This is what it says on the spec for my comp:- Integrated Realtek ALC888S high-definition audio with 7.1-channel audio support, S/PDIF (Sony/Phillips Digital Interface) support

Can anyone help?

Sounds like we need to update your audio drivers.
If you upgraded it's possible you are still using a lot of the old drivers.
The top download here
Realtek (you'll have to check the box and click okay)
should contain the most recent driver for that realtek device.
