Hi guys....just found this site last night, first post for me, dont know a WHOLE lot about computer stuff, but know some basics....

 So my Toshiba laptop & windows 8 got that iStart123 virus/browser hijacker crap on it a couple weks ago, I followed a great tutorial online on how to completly remove it & that worked awesome....While I was deleting/removing stuff that was attatched to that, I found a few other things in the registry that I didnt think belonged there so I removed those too

    I went to plug my computer speakers back in to the headphone jack & the sound came out, for lack of a better word, "tin-y" sounding & had no bass....Sounds all funky....I cleand the headphone jack & that didnt do anything....I plugged those same speakers into another audio source & they sounded fine...

    Does anyone have experience with this type of thing? did I maybe delete a driver or something? very irritating, I use those speakers all the time....

   Any info is appreciated, thanx...

Just guessing of course, I would try different head phones, it,s a driver issue for sure.

Like I said I dont know a WHOLE lot about this stuff....what can I do about the driver? Install another one off the internet? Update something with my audio program(s)?

don't download another driver, that can make, problems. I would try other head phones.

Ok, I'll try that when I get home, but I really dont think thats it. I plugged that same headphone wire into my record player & it sounded fine....I'll try that first though

Ok, tried different headphones, went into the device manager thing & updated the drivers for the Intel Display Audio & Realtek & it still sounds the same. Tried using a different playback program, still the same, tin-y, flat sounding with no bass at all....Its like an equalizer is all jacked up, but its not ....any advice on where to go from here?

Nevermind, got it, did "scan for hardware changes" on the audio playback programs, then launched realtek's DTS thing & as soon as I did the sound was fixed...thanx for the suggestions though

Did you try adjusting volume controls? It,s not a driver.  Thanks, Chuck
