Hi Fred,
Go to the , Control Panel / Sounds / Playback
Highlight the soundcard, then tab to, Properties, and press the spacebar to open.
Control tab to the Enhancements or Advanced tab, now tab through to turn off any bass boost or audio enhancements settings.
I don't know what options you'll have, but once you're in the right area you can experiment to see what sounds best for you.
Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Bill, you are right in what I said.  The computer works fine but just very
basey audio and practically no treble.  The problem is not my speakers as I
use two computers with one set of speakers.  I thought of calling the
microsoft help line but the problem seemed to have started during dell
updates and I thought dell might have the solution.  I have been working on
this problem now for about a month.  Anyway, thanks to all that has or will
try to help me.  I can be contacted off the list as I do not want to clutter
up the list.

Thanks again,

Hi, Marten. Fred wrote the following:

So, Fred is saying that his audio has too much bass, and not enough treble.

What exactly is the problem?
Your computer becomes slow?

Maybe disable the Wavemax audio driver.
Open the startmenu, type:
Tab when this program opens and you are in a list.
Find the Wavemax audio driver. I don' have the exact name, something with
Wavemax I thought.
Right click on it and choose properties.
Set startup type: disable.

Your sound will still work without this driver.

Kind regards, Marten
