How do I reset my audio/sound card settings?
Resetting the audio card can be quite different depending on what sound card model and manufacture. In this article you'll find two example of how to do it. It's recommended you consult your manual, documentation or manufactures website to get the details on how you can do it.
Example 1, the audio control program is in the start menu:
1. Open the start menu and go to the "All Programs" window, locate the manufactures folder and select the appropriate program to launch.
2. That should do it. However, some manufactures have the option in their audio programs for controlling EQ/Effects/Settings. Launch the application and browse around, you should be able to find it.
Example 2, some use the control panel to hold their audio program:
1. Open the start menu and go to the Control Panel.
2. Select Speech, Sound and Audio devices
3. In the window that appears look for an icon that seems to be a specific one for your card. In this example it's called "Sound effect manager", the actual appearance could be very different from this.
4. In the program/control panel that launches you should be able to find a reset option. It's not shown here as it's so dependent on the software and card you have.
