Hello All!

I'm looking for directions on how to use the default Microsoft HD audio driver for my laptop. Currently the Realtek HD audio driver is installed. I was going to try "uninstalling" the driver but it then says it will remove the device completely. Will this make the Microsoft drivers just take over automatically?

I can provide any needed information promptly.

Thank you in advance!

My other laptop uses the driver. I like the bass boost (selective by frequency and db boost amount) on the Microsoft driver. The Realtek driver has horrible bass boost.

I know opinions vary on using enhancements, but I'm not that picky.

Thanks!

It could very well be using special software to get those effects. What kind of sound cards are we dealing with?

Can you run the following on both computers:
