I have a question about my audio driver.
I've bought a new headphone but there wasn't much bass when using with my laptop (with Conexant as the audio driver). On my phone, the headset's audio is completely fine (with bass of course). I had a Conexant audio driver and searched on the internet on how to improve the audio. I searched for some tutorials and found a new driver called High Defenition Audio Device by Microsoft. So I updated the driver and now it's High Defenition Audio Device. And my headphone audio has slightly improved.
However, the "Dolby" tab (Sounds > Playback > Speakers > "Dolby" tab) is now gone! And my computer sounds like an old radio (no bass, only mid/high frequency really)...
Is it possible to get Dolby back? Or is Dolby not compatible with the High Defenition Audio Device driver by Microsoft? I've tried the Lenovo Vantage and saw Dolby options, but they don't work anymore too...
Thanks in advance.

Ehm well, it brought the "Dolby tab" back and the laptop audio is fine now. But the now there slightly no bass on the headphone anymore. Like I said: Has it something to do with that Dolby is not compatible with the High Defenition Audio Device driver by Microsoft?

When it comes to laptop, notebooks and all in ones it is always best to use the manufactor's drivers (video, audio, network est..) even for some prebuilt desktops.
Edit: Because within those devices is/can be proprietary hardware and in most cases will need proprietary or altered software to run them correctly.
