Default Alternative Audio driver - 11-12-2008, 12:34 AM

Does one exist? I'd much rather use the windows volume manager, or at very least a simpler one that doesnt require a program of that size to load up everytime.

Please do not send me support requests via PM.

agreed - quite the sound driver for such a lackluster sound system! even my XPS1710 doesnt have such a big driver!

A question,

How does one go about determining how "big" a particular driver is?

I mean, I can see the audio application that it's insisting on having in the system tray, (of limited usefulness except for the EQ. "powerful" balances out the audio from the tiny speakers a little better for me) but how do you go about determining what resources a particular driver is using other than mere drive space?

I don't think I've really paid much attention to stuff like that in the past. :?
