Hi,
Is there any way to crisp up my sound tone? It's not bad about half the time, but at other times it's muffled like listening through cotton wool.
Online movies and TV programs are especially badly muffled.
My external speakers are about 4 years old, there's a 'Tone' knob on them but it has barely any effect.
I've gone into my Win XP Home 'Sounds and Audio devices' settings (Realtek HD Audio) looking for a tone control, but apparently the only sliders I can see are just for volume, nothing to sharpen up the tone, or am I missing something?
Any advice? Thanks

Let me put it another way- is there a 'tone control' in Win XP Home as well as volume controls? I can't seem to find one

Best I can do.... Using Volume Control
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Okay guys i solved it by buying a pair of new speakers (20 GB pounds/ 28 US dollars) and their tone control works a treat..:)
