Beats audio only 3 speakers

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv7 6180sl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP Pavillion dv7 6180sl with windows 10 6bit.
The notebook is equipped with Beats Audio 4.1
The sound only from 3 speakers and the subwoofer does not work.
I tried different drivers, the last is sp71886.
With windows drivers work only 2 speakers and microphone whistles (I keep it at low volume).

With Windows 7 worked perfectly

It only has 2 speakers at the front




and 1 subwoofer at the bottom




It specs


4.1 does not mean it has 5 speakers.

Hi, @marcoa81 :


The only suggestion I can offer would be to try this W10 IDT Beats audio driver.


Install and restart the PC.


This package contains the driver that enables the IDT High-Definition (HD) Audio in supported notebook models that are running a supported operating system.
