    I reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows 7 and don't know where to find the Beats Audio Software. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

    The Beats Audio software is part of the "IDT High Definition Audio Codec", which can be found here. The only Beats Audio function I lost after the clean install is the ability to turn Beats Audio on and off using FN+B. After the clean install it just stays on all the time (which actually isn't that bad).

    the fn+b stuf comes from hp tonecontrol which should be in your swsetup folder (which you were supposed to back up)

    Thanks for the heads up! I backed everything up before I did the clean install. However I didn't wanted to find out which program I should install for the fn+b by trail and error (and thus reinstalling all the crap that made me do the clean install in the first place). Furthermore I think the fn+B is only to show of how much better the Beats Audio sounds to your friends anyway.

    the beats shortcut (fn+B) still exists... all it does is turns treble and bass all the way up in the windows audio controls

    All you need for the Ctrl B Beats Audio option is the Audio driver provided by HP and one small program that basically changes Window's tone control options. I have the tone control program as stand-alone and can upload it to somewhere if MODs will allow.
