I have received 2 updated drivers since my install of WIN 7. So the drivers
built into Win 7 may not be up to it. Though It did not seam to have any
problem's

Hi,
Maybe if you try installing Realtek HD Audio codec driver could solve your
problem:

Realtek drivers keep coming, along with many others, the only way
to be sure of getting the latest Win7 drivers is to use a Win7 compatible
driver update manager.

I have tried Realtek 2.37, worse then the MS drivers. I have just
downloaded 2.38 and these too are worse than the MS jobs. Looks like a
roll back to the originals.

BTW, anyone know why it is so difficult to download drivers from Realtek?

This is a general problem that has been around for years.
As long as i use the native Windows sounddrivers all is fine.
The moment i use 3th-party drivers they sound "always" scratchy.
This happend in Win95, Win98, WinXP and now in Win7 (can'ttell anything
on WinME and Vista since i bypassed these but i assume they suffered
from the same problem.
Also, it doesn't matter if you use a Creative card (whatever type) or
Realtek, the scratchy sound is always there if i used their own drivers.

Therefore, i don't buy aditional soundcards anymore and don't use their
drivers on build-in soundcards. The scratchy sound is always there.

For Win7 i thought, let's see what it brings but this problem still has
not been solved.
Used the 2.39 Realtek's and still scratchy sound. Back to the Windows
drivers and all sound is fine.

What do you mean by "scratchy"?
Maybe it is just that the drivers that you are complaining about
extend the available frequency range.
If you are relying on monitor speakers, they are not noted for
good frequency response, particularly at the lower frequencies,
use a 2.1 system, with a decent woofer, and hear the
difference. Use the remote to trim the balance until the sound
is to your liking. A bit of extra bass usually fixes it.
With a decent long-throw woofer you should be able to feel
it moving air.
