    When I first got my current laptop (Dell Inspiron M5110) a couple of years ago I found that the sound became distorted if I tried to play any music that had loud notes in the higher registers and I managed to find an alternative audio driver which completely solved the problem. I've recently had to do a factory restore and the audio problem is back, but I cannot find the audio driver that solved the issue the first time around. Does anyone know of any and where I can download them?

    The default Dell ones are:
    AMD High Definition Audio Device
    IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

    Thanks, in the process of trying to install that I accidentally fixed it by deleting the IDT driver and Windows kicked in and sounds perfect without needing a third party driver! I guess that's what I did the first time around!
