Messed up sound

    Messed up sound


    Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
    Computer is Asus P53E

    Control Panel–Sound
    playback Speakers “Realtec” High Definition Audio
    recording Mic “Realtec” High Definition Audio
    communication box checked for 80% reduction

    Control Panel-“Realtec” High Definition Audio Manager


    Control Panel-Device Manager–Sound, video and game controllers
    “Intel” Display Audio
    “Realtec” High Definition Audio Control Panel–Sound

    Sound was OK when new. Since then I was trying to increase volume and thought that one of the settings could influence volume. Boy! was I wrong. Now, even "Utube" sound is not understandable. Cannot understand anything. If I could get all of the devices Back to default, maybe, the sound will return to normal. I have set all the sound system defaults that I can find. Maybe the speakers are bad.
    Any ideas?

    Unfortunelly, the problem has existed for more than six months. My restore doesn't go back that far.

    You didn't say if you tried re-installing the drivers. Preferably the ones from the Asus site.

    I installed newer drivers from RealTech and that solved the problem. Now if I could increase voluma a bit. But I am not going to "Mickey Mouse". That's what got me in trouble in the first place.
