Windows 7: How do i get generic sound driver back?

How do i get generic sound driver back?

I've been trying to get the original sound driver back on my machine, so I can get the original Windows 7 equalizer. (Exactly as the pic looks) I've already tried rolling back the drivers, it does nothing.
(Screenshot of what I'm looking to have)

I have an on-board sound card, nothing fancy. I ****ing hate realtek's equalizer, its bass boost is shit. So i'm asking for help to get it back so it would look as the pic above.

Does anyone know how I could do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, Here is a screenshot of my current audio panel.

I don't have a realtek sound card but have you tried to uninstall with "delete driver" selected? This will give you the "High Definition Audio Device" and you should get the original Windows 7 equalizer
