I recently upgraded my PC from Vista Home 32-bit to Windows Home Edition 64-bit; wiped my hard drive and all that, and reinstalled my old programs. Basically a very successful clean install, and I love the new OS. However, my 8 year-old Altec Lansing speakers beg to differ. They have not really been used since I discovered them in heaps of my dad's old stuff in September, and on Ubuntu and Vista they worked marvelously - they're pretty damn expensive speakers, they're just from 2002 or so. And they weren't open when I found them, so obviously no problems with them. But as soon as I upgraded to Windows 7, I encountered a few problems. When listening to music on Winamp or iTunes, the speakers seem drowned-out, the treble is almost uncomprehensible in some songs, and the mids seem to either be too loud or too quiet. The bass, on the other hand, is better than ever. It's nothing to do with the EQ's in iTunes or Winamp, those are set to the way I had them in Vista, and on games the speakers seem to work fine. Could it be a problem with porting the songs from Vista to 7, or is it a problem with the OS and speakers themselves? If it is a problem with the songs, what could I do to fix them? I'm a pretty big music fan in general, and it seems like every other of my 4,000 songs has the problem. Thanks to whoever helps, and happy holidays.
