I'm using external speaker that connects speaker jack to the computer.
My problem is its sound almost no bass.
So I tried the followings;
1. Open Control Panel window
2. Select Sound
3. Select Configure
4. Select Quadraphonic or 5.1 Surround (from Stereo)
5. Select all next and finish
Then, I can get the normal sound.
I think because it all sounds are included and output to speaker jack port.
But if I reboot the computer, it returns to the original settings.
That no matter to application "HP Audio Control".
Could you please help me?
