Sound driver issue - VIA is horrible.

Level 7
I have two volume options, mute or very Fking loud.

I've followed every guide and every "fix" threads here and so far I haven't had any luck getting the speakers to work as they should. When I do uninstall the VIA drivers though, windows drivers make it sound much, much better. Asus should have stuck with Realtek hardware instead of this cheap VIA crap. Everything, as we all know, seems to point to really bad drivers.

With all that being said I will most likely rid myself of this laptop and wait for the next gen Asus machines. If anyone is looking for a new G55VW-RS71 please send me a PM, this thing is for sale. (Comes with box and all discs and serial number is unregistered for warranty purposes)
