Angry Audio enhancements issue
When I try to change the Audio Enhancements settings, it always reverts back to the last settings I had. I used to be able to change them, and I'm not sure what changed.

Please help!

If you usually don't want audio to go through HDMI then I think it might work if you go to your Playback Devices and just disable the HDMI connection. (Right-click, Disable) Then it shouldn't switch back to that all the time.

If that doesn't work for some reason, then depending on your video card and monitor, you could try using a DVI cable instead of HDMI.

I'm still having problems with my audio. I still can't change any enhancements options or even turn them off, audiodg.exe uses a good bit of CPU whenever I use audio, and sometimes some programs will just stop playing any sound for no apparent reason.

Any help?

When I change the enhancement settings, confirm, and reopen the enhancements dialog, none of the settings are saved.
This also happens with Realtek's custom audio manager.

Also, the two enhancements I have enabled are Headphone Virtualization and Loudness Equalization, which are both Microsoft enhancements.

Sorry for the late response

I uninstalled the audio drivers, and then I went to the HP Compaq website and reinstalled the audio drivers (my computer is an HP Compaq Presario CQ56). Now it's telling me the audio device is disabled, and I can't figure out how to enable it.

Please help!

I'm thinking that I downloaded the wrong drivers, there's 18 different models of Compaq Presario CQ56, but I'm not sure which one is the one I have, How would I find the full model number?

Edit: I found the model number, it's CQ56-219WM.

Edit 2: I tried installing the drivers for my model, still got the same error. I tried going to the Realtek website and installing their drivers, and I still get the same error. When I go into Control Panel, it recognizes the drivers and says the speakers are enabled, but the speaker icon on the taskbar has a little red X and it says "No Audio Output Device is installed".

I used System Restore, so now I have the audio back, but I still have the original problem of not being able to disable audio enhancements.
