hmmm tried to run the standard realtech hd 2.14 driver today.
version is 393, my driver is 404 or something.
the card was heaps lowder and more distorted.
the menus jumped round like no one's business.
I suspect i can only run spaciffic drivers for my laptop.
the old 384 driver I have is the best sounding, unfortunately I really can't 
run games with the card right at least not all of them.
