    I just recently fixed some sound card issues on my computer with the help of some people on this site, which can be viewed here . After my sound card was working, i tried two different set of speakers, but my volume still remains incredibly low. I have gone to the volume main controls and put everything as high as they will go, but i can only hear sound if there is basically silence in the room. I've used an old set of speakers from our first computer, which are Labtec brand and cant be plugged in any more, which gave them the ability to adjust the volume, and a set of Polk Audio speakers, which dont have volume controls at all, but came with an HP Pavilion, where they work great. Is it possible that it I need a set of speakers that can be turned on and had their own volumes adjusted to get louder volume?

    If not, what should I do?

    What I meant about the old set of speakers is that they can either be powered by plugging in an AC adapter or 2 C batteries apiece, but neither method works for giving them power. When nothing is connected, they still work, you just have no control over the volume from the knobs that are on the speakers.

    no one ever posted, but for future reference, i put in a better set of speakers with their own volume control, and tried plugging my sound output into a home stereo system, and both methods worked.
