I installed the driver and it just didn't help :/ I think my problem might be due to lack of RAM though, I only have 1 Gb, and if I'm not running any other programs, the sound is better.

I have the same problem with my desktop-pc at work. It has a Biostar k8m800 motherboard. Same poor sound quality. But this system has enough memory (2Gb). It doesn't matter if the CPU is heavily loaded or not, sound-quality always sucks. I tried a variety of different drivers, from the Realtek website till the Biostar-supportsite. Nothing seems to resolve the problem.

Hi Pixie. It's then most likely due to a CPU throttling feature in the bios. Disable the feature and test it out.

If that doesn't do it, then it's possible an actual bios update will fix it.

I have a question for that. Do i update the bios through the vista or xp driver download? I upgraded from xp and I have windows 7 now. Last time i tried updated the original xp bios and I froze my computer, had to reinstall. (this was all to fix my sound problems too)

Bios versions and updates are not related at all to the operating system you're running.

Some manufacturers however, require you to be running a certain OS to update from within Windows.

In all cases, if a dos utility is available as a method, updating bios is best done by booting to a floppy disk.

See manufacturer's specific instructions for your model of motherboard.

Thanks for the help, but i guess i shouldnt have gone with HP they have no windows 7 drivers on their website it's really annoying. Thats the only way i know how to update the bios through their support and drivers page. Example: WinFlash for HP Notebook System BIOS (for Notebooks with AMD Processors) - Microsoft Windows/Vista-Based HP Pavilion dv2000 CTO Notebook PC - HP Customer Care (United States - English) like i said this screwed my computer last night. :/

You can try again, only this time, close everything not needed for Windows to run. Everything - including antivirus and firewall. Use task manager to close things too, after normal way. Google about them if you aren't sure.

Then try the update.

Sound quality while using webcam
Is it normal that my sound quality gets a lot worse after I start a videocall in MSN with my friends? The sound gets lower (which is normal, if I'm right) but the quality also gets a lot worse. It gets somewhat muddy, the bass goes worse and so does the treble. Is there some way to fix this?...
