low sound after win 7 installation

Post by vultusprime » September 7th 2017 - 7:29 pm

Hello everyone.

I have just reinstalled win 7 pro on a new hard disk but the sound is quite low compared to before. Maybe I should uninstall and reinstall the sound drivers (I think!). But which ones? I have Nvidia High definition audio - Nvidia virtual audio device (wave extensible) (wdm) - Realtek high definition audio.

Which one should I reinstall?

thanks

Depends for which use and how your configuration is set up.

Personally I would go for the Realtek ones.They are not bad and very versatile.

why do u have 2 different manufactures drivers?
do u have a card audio card and audio on board?
I would think you should be using one or the other. :hmm:
see if either have Loudness Equalization, which would help.

that is a good question, I don't know why there are 2, I do not have a sound card. The Loudness Equalization you mention, where is it?

Realtek high definition audio is not for your speakers. Nvidia High definition audio is.
(Right-click speaker icon, Choose Playback Devices > Right-click NVIDIA HD Audio Device > Enhancements tab > Tick Loudness Equalisation > OK).
