GE73 Raider RGB 8RF - Volume too quiet, No Loudness Eq, Limited Options - Help

I encountered a strange problem with the sound just being too low. In games like Escape From Tarkov?. I miss the loud sound which made me feel like I'm inside the game.
What I have done so far:

- Tried different Drivers (lots of Problems, crippled my system which led to the next point, with the help of DDU)
- Reinstalled the system (followed the guide how to install everything in order incl. reboots as many as needed)
- various other things (w10 Settings.. no luck)

If I update the realtek driver -> nahimic won't work or the audio-jack would create a BSOD right after plugging in my headset (used different to test on other systems too with the same results) which results in a complete MESS where I'm not able to revert back or make it work again? I'm afraid of changing something but the sound is like 70% instead of 100%.

There is no loudness EQ in Realtek and Nahimic?. both of them are so limited in options and dull to use. The next thing is the complexity reg. what driver to install for my system. I feel like my head is going to explode and MSI support WAS NOT ABLE TO HELP ME OUT.

Are there any other drivers I could safely use with that system? Or is that system damaged? I don't know what the problem is? I can't seem to fix it or even find a tool which makes a test and check if something is not right with the volume.
Currently, Nahimic and Realtek (Whit- window-edition? not that msi-black-red color) is working. I'm so frustrated, that gaming laptop is a damn mess =(

For any help?  thank you!

Realtek Driver:  (many won't work with Nahimic and/or create a BSOD when plugging in a Headset into the audio jack)
Nahimic: 1.2.17 (Settings do Nothing to improve the volume)
(Both Drivers are the only one working in that combination, every other driver Fails/cripples my entire system)
