Hey, hopefuly this will be easy to sort!!

I have just built this comp so it has never been any other way.It is an ECS K7S5A Mobo, it has on-board sound and when i listen to music through headphones it is really really quiet.i have turned the volume up on all the bits i can find but it doesnt make any differance really!!

Any ideas??

Thanks

Daniel

unfortunately most boards with built in sound do NOT have much audio output. The best thing is to get a set of speakers with a built in amplifier. If you want to use headphones, get a set that has a headphone plug.

Are you sure you have the headphones plugged in the correct jack? Even unamplified it should be loud enough to hear.

I believe its the green one on the left.

i could be wrong, but i believe that board needs to have the audio drivers installed.

have you installed them yet??

ye i did.I also downloaded some from the website to see if changing them made a difference.But nope!!!I only could install the audio codec bit, not the rest under the sound video game port heading in device manager.

Thanks again for the reply....

If you have any more ideas let me know!!

Thanks

Daniel
