I had a laptop with dell MaxxAudio pre-installed, it was amazing, everything sounded good. I now have a brand new computer and I searched for it online but I couldn't find a download link. Is there any way to get it or to get something similar?

well, closest equivalent without paying for separate hardware/software would be realtek's own toys, downloadable from manufacturers site:
http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z270%20Killer%20SLI/index.asp#osW1064

Realtek high definition audio driver ver:8051 (Realtek & DTS)

It should have all the necessary tools to adjust audio, including equalizer and such, which is pretty much all Dell's laptop likely had, the laptop speakers/sound chip is not all that great either, they likely just had well balanced audio/equalizer settings as preset there.

Hopefully that helps.

Edit: A page telling what Maxx Audio does, which is pretty much equalizer fixing the sound to sound "good" You should be able to do most of that with realtek's equalizer too.

said Dell MaxxAudio was quite likely drivers/software for the laptop's soundcard, said things will most likely NOT work on a laptop with different sound chip.

Past that, further research would require us to know both new computers type/model and old computers type/model

I think what rgd1101 is correct, It will check for correct hardware first.
Now, back to finding the driver, it took me a while to look but there are like "thousand" different dell Inspiron 5xxx models, finding your exact model is not possible with guesswork.
At quick glance, pretty much all of them, even ones advertized to ship with Maxx audio, are using normal realtek sound cards
Your current motherboard (No idea if it's Z270 or X370 though so can't link to the download) has same brand realtek card, downside is, your chip is likely different. You should get equivalent settings by installing the full realtek software suite though.

ASRock Killer SLI is z270, if it's not possible to download MaxxAudio do you know at least a similar software?
