HP Envy laptop purchased less than 5 months ago from the HP store. I have tried to put up with the poor speakers but they are now unbearable. The sound from the speakers is poor and too low even on full volume. If watching something on the laptop I need complete silence in the room or it is difficult to hear. I am sure this is not how HP or Bang & Olufsen speakers are made to be experienced.
Things I have tried;
1. I have checked in device manager that the speaker is enabled. There are 2 speakers listed; Conexant ISST Audio and Intel Display Audio. Both are enabled.
2. I have tried increasing the output equaliser to maximum in the Bang & Olufsen control panel. This made no difference.
Please advise how to resolve this issue.

Hi, Thanks for your help.
I ran an audio test and it passed.
I looked in device manager but I am not sure which drivers I uninstall?
Under "Audio Inputs and Outputs" there is a "Speakers (Conexant ISST Audio)" driver
Under "Sound, video, and game controllers" there are 2 drivers; "Conexant ISST Audio" and "Inter(R) Display Audio".
Can you please advise which I uninstall before installing your link.

Are you still waiting for help two and a half years on? I hope not, but can't see anything to say the issue was resolved.
I have similar audio issues with a ZBook 17 G6 that supposedly has "Bang & Olufsen" audio, although I suspect Peter Bang & Svend Olufsen would be turning in their respective graves if they heard the fidelity of the acoustic output from my HP that, now almost ironically, bears their names.
