Star t> Control panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound > Right click speakers > properties > and another (properties) under control information > Change settings > Roll Back Driver .
3- install what you have downloaded . ( preferly make a backup of your drivers just in case - for me i took a copy of all folders in C:DELL/DRIVERS/ )
(Optional) 4- some service popped up from Internet download manager that needs to be disabled and then enabled with (automatic) chosen
to do so Right click my computer> manage > services and applications > services > look for Base filtering engine and click it > startup type :automatic > disable it > then enable it again > then start .
5- click Windows+x on your keyboard to open up windows mobility > change Functional key to multimedia key > close it

Hi I have recently installed Win 8 on a Dell Inspiron 7520 SE and after the installation no more Maxx Wave 3 has anybody had the same situation? If so what was your solution I've tried their web-site and no help there either! HELP me please.
When you installed the operating system, did you install the Dell System Software(if applicable) and the chipset drivers first? If not, the rest of the drivers will fail to install. How to Download and Install Drivers in the Correct Order
Start with the Dell System Software and the chipset drivers and follow the list.
Did you download and insstall the Realtek drivers from Dell's website

Hi I also have a very similar system setup and a similar problem after a rebuild.
Dell XPS 17+3D L702x - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, 2nd Generation Intel Core i7-2860QM processorNVIDIA GeForce GT 555M - 12GB Ram.
Completely rebuilt the machine as it was running slowly due to malware, runs brilliantly fast now, but I cannot get the Dell Realtek driver to work properly. The equaliser, Maxx Audio selections do not work. I use the machine for audio recording and the driver issue means that I also do not get a line-in record option on Adobe Audition CS5.5
Your help/assistance will be gratefully received.
