I have not reopened my other thread that has been solved for the most part in having Realtek drivers now installed over the windows 7-ones that came with the 32 bit Ultimate. The sounds have improved greatly, but there is still less quality then what it was with XP. I would like to learn further and find appropriate drivers or software to enhance and bring out the rich bass and loud instruments. WMP 12 doesn't have sound, but videos are nice and better pictures. You tube videos play alright as does other sites that has players or use You Tube or Viehmo, etc...There appears to be a lot of issues with WMP according to my own research.
If any ideas as to how I can get going w/finding how I can get regular sound as good as before with XP, lay it on and thanks alot and within this weekend, I can check back for any possible replies.
