  1. sound/realtek audio


    Reltek driver updated on my laptop, and now the sound sounds weird and has a weird echo like surround sound effect. It plays the sounds in both sides of the headphones but its more vivid in either the left or right side. Ex; if there were drums in a music video it might switch the beat from left to right then left again in rhythm, or it will be completely on one side while other elements of the music plays in the other side.


    The best way I can describe it is like surround sound, but I don't have that option enabled or available since its greyed out in the device settings for Realtek. It seems best fitted for gamers who like to hear things happening to either the left or right of them and it gives a better feeling for the game, but I don't like it. Is there a way to get another device other then Realtek or maybe there's a setting that I can adjust to stop the slight echo and switching sounds between ears?


    If anybody knows of a secure way to help fix this problem it'd be greatly appreciated!

    :)

    Sound Quality


    One thing that sticks out from looking at your "My Computer" specs. You list "ONBOARD 6 CHANNEL (5.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)" which suggests you do not have the correct sound hardware driver. Your motherboard has Realtek sound and the first step is to install the Realtek sound drivers. My ASUS also came with Sonic Studio 2 which is a sound enhancement package. Check the ASUS install disc to see if you have something similar.

    May not be a speaker problem.

    1.Go Open up device manager
    2. Go under sound,video, and game controllers
    3. Find Realtek High Definition Audio
    4. Right click and hit update driver
    5. Browse my computer for driver software
    6. Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer
    7. Click Have Disk and hit browse
    8. Click on the Realtek HD Audio mod folder and look for win64
    9. Click on the HDXRT4 and click ok,
    10. Click Next and Yes
