Thanks for the reply.
 
When I use any sound recording program and record from the stereo mix recording device for the inbuilt sound card, the recording has less range of frequency and sounds worse than the sound I hear at the time of recording.
 
So for example I play an mp3 in VLC or mediaplayer classic or a video on youtube, I record the sound using the Stereo Mix recording device (which records what you hear generated from the inbuilt sound playback device).
 
I looked at the link you suggested.
 
1. I've checked volume settings its not that as it would be quieter instead of sounding worse,
2. its not the mute setting as i wouldn't hear anything at all.
3. I've used external speakers and headphones, obviously they sound better than the laptop speakers, I've recorded from stereo mix and then played back the recording and it sounds worse than the original recording, so it doesn't make a difference whether its coming from the laptop speakers or external speakers or headphones as expected.
4. trouble shooting tool in windows didn't help.
5. updated drivers to HP's and to the original board manufactures - no improvement.
6. checked its set as the default audio device - it wouldn't record what I was playing back otherwise
7. yes performed a hard reset - that made no difference.
8. Yes updated the bios to latest for my laptop.
9. resorting my laptop didn't help.
 
At the moment I'm pretty sure its a bug in the audio driver.
 
Can you think of anything else which might cause the stereo mix (what I hear) to not sound exactly as the original playback sounds?
