Having some audio driver issues with my HP laptop, it comes with beats audio. None of the effects in the manufacturer's control panel work, and I can't find music listenable on my headphones without a bass booster. If I uninstall the driver and use the generic Microsoft one, the sound works great and I can enable effects in the "enhancements" tab of the sound settings.

However, within the last few weeks, sometimes when I have headphones plugged in with the Microsoft driver I get no sound. If I unplug the headphones, the sound comes out of the speakers just fine. This doesn't happen with the manufacturer's driver. Any suggestions as to what I should do, allowing me to get the audio effects I want without weird compatibility issues?
