yikes is what i say to this update... am scared to def (haha) to update drivers just when i got them working both here and the laptop with the 2.14's. Quirky install that was. Laptop recognized being HD, but never got any sound. had to uninstall and load'em again to get sound. On desktop the drivers with win7 install worked at first, then lost them? somehow? Used the 2.14 and got everything back.

Basically i'm going with.... aint broke dont fix approach, lol... maybe when i get the courage and a few more replies to this i will attempt the conquest. Thanks for the heads up tho Brink
Thanks for the input guys. I too have Realtek on board sound. I downloaded the November '09 drivers and still no front speaker sound, just back speakers, even though I had to load the drivers twice to get the new version to appear in Device Manager. I disabled the onboard sound and installed an Audigy 2 ZS board and downloaded the latest Creative drivers for it. All that did was move the sound from my two rear speakers to my left and right front speakers (I have front left,center, front right and two back speakers). I have ordered an Audigy 4 sound card. I understand from this forum the Audigy 4 works. I will report back on this "fix" for the Realtek sound problem.

Windows 7 build 7600

I tried the latest Realtek driver and sound isnt that good.

I used to have far better sound that this. Its somewhat dull id say. And speaker fill doesnt work so good. I get all speakers but get random hiss and rear speakers work without any vocals (ROFL) and with heavy hiss. Very poor sound.

This only for me or what?

Note: i saw a lot of forums and i have to say this one is really great! Great work guys =).

Edit: i ran the DPC latency thing someone noted and i get mostly 50-70 maximum was 274. Is that good ? XD

Karaoke Mode?

Like many I was getting horrible sound under windows 7 (but working fine when I went back to XP). I note others mentioned that speech, youtube etc was distorted (me too).
I just realised the Karaoke mode is ON when it has a red cross (Voice cancellation) and off when it hasn't.
For some reason it had defaulted to ON (which looked like OFF to me).
Changing that improved audio dramatically - I can actually hear radio broadcasts.
Seems too obvious, but I missed it, so I hope this helps someone else!

Seems to be working OK for me. At least Realtek are making an effort in updating their audio drivers - the same cannot be said for some of the other manufacturers.

The only thing I find when updating these drivers is the audiodg.exe processor usage requirements go up and down (2.36 and 0-2% now).
