    Hi!

    Pretty impressive post there!
    I have a question for you if you don't mind.
    I have a G46 and my friends have been telling me I sound terrible when we are in a Skype call.
    I listened to myself using the Skype testing service and well, it just sound like I'm sitting in a cardboard box or something.
    I am (obviously) using the inbuilt mic.
    I already changed the "mic boost" from 30db to 0, it helped a little but it still sounds pretty meh :/

    I could post a sample sound if that's necessary. If you cant help then no problem and I'll probably just make a new thread for it.

    I never used skype, I have no idea about how it works. But for what is worth, I am using a pair of headphones and they are rather good (and cheap). Easy fix, get a pair. I have not seen sound so bad on other series from anyone, like these G laptops offer us. It's so beyond me why Asus made them like this.

    First at this point I am using VIA 10600a drivers. This is important. I have them from here.


    Second, the player migh play an important part so I'll put it as well. I am an old user of KMPlayer and after the team dropped the suport on it to develop PotPlayer, I have that. You can get PotPlayer from here. Do not download the DirectX or whatever it might complain about.

    PotPlayer will ask you for a speaker setting. You can choose whatever you want, it can be changed later.





    There is also a LFE setting that will give you a bit more low freq.

    If other settings are checked in this section, make them to be like mine or test your own to suit your needs.

    I find PotPlayer to be a very nice program for music and movies. It has internal codecs, uses full GPU power when needed, is low on system resources, has a ton of options, it's very stable. The bad part with the x64 version is that it will minize to tray everytime.

    The VIA Deck settings:

    Volume control - I set Bass Filter to 50.



    Speaker setting



    Default format - programs might use different settings, so I didn't change a thing here.



    Sound Equalizer - the part you all want.



    Here are the values for them:

    60 = +5 - there is hardly any improvement on low freq. with this any higher.
    170 = +15 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this.
    310 = +5 - higher value will not help sound quality much.
    600 = 0
    1k = -10 - Sub and speakers both are affected by this, for a Sub a range 'till 1k is quite a lot.
    3k = 0
    6k = +10
    12k = + 15 - Above 12k sound quality on speakers will be poor.
    14k = 0
    16k = 0

    If you have questions, please ask.

    I did not change anything in Windows.

    Is the stock G55VW sound system / speakers the same as the G75 machine?

    Will these settings also work for the G55?

    Sadly, you can't. The g75vx comes with a totally different sound card . it's realtek instead of VIA.

    Realtek actually produces better sound. and much louder. although it still has the issue with the subwoofer. this is going to be asus who needs to patch this on a BIOS update.

    I had the G75VW for a while, got rid of it for a G75VX.....

    Here are some observations....

    I thought the bass quality and quantity of the G75VW with the VIA chip was much better.

    As a matter of fact, when using the equalizer of the G75VX with the Realtek HD audio drivers.....moving any of the sliders below 1K did absolutely nothing to the sound. I could move the 31, 62, 125, 250 and 500 all the up or all the way down and it did not change the sound one bit.

    With the G75VW and the VIA chip, moving all these frequencies around actually had an effect on the sound (except the lowest bass slider)

    The only way I can think is to adjust it through the HD Audio Deck... at least that's how I do it on my VW. Theres a slider for 'Bass Filter' and it seems to work best when it's lowered to about 40% of whatever the speakers are set to.

    Using 6.0.10.1900 driver, and working fine on my side.
    Actually I'm using headset mostly rather than internal speakers (no equalizer needed), but if I have to use speakers - now the sound is better
    c_man, thanx for this useful post!
