Hey everyone,
I recently bought a 5.1 surround system, and I was wondering if there was a program that I could use on my laptop to control the output (set it up for surround, make the subwoofer work more, etc) I have Altec Lansing speakers on my laptop which is an HP dv9000z as far as I can tell my soundcard is the Conexant HD Audio, I know that Realtek has a program like this, which is what I am looking for. Any help?

thanks,
Jack

windows does this, as do the sound drivers. check control panel and your start menu.

Yea i don't have anything on my computer to do it. I mean I know i have the right drivers because the speakers work, and the headphone jacks work, but they aren't optimized for surround. I have something in control panel that says SmartAudio but it does not exist, its a blank icon. Hmm...

And the drivers are updated. What i need is the program itself, I've already updated the drivers, I need i guess the UI

Right, so you could always get a laptop soundcard. I think creative has a few to offer as well as other brands.

To answer your question though, are you running Windows XP/Vista? 32bit or 64bit? If you are running Vista 64bit, try looking in the control panel and look for "View 32bit Control Panel Items" and look in there for something specific to your onboard sound.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
