    I have a computer running some crappy speakers, and for some reason I can barely hear anything from them. I read other posts that talked about not having amplified speakers, and that I should just get amplified ones and be done with it. The only thing that gives me pause is that when I shut down for the night, and you get the windows "shut down" sound, it is really loud. So I tried them on another new computer of mine, and they worked fine. I have obviously checked all the volume settings and they are all on and turned up all the way. Any ideas why this might be happening.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi CluFunkBunk, and welcome to TSG.

    If you go into the "Sounds and Audio Devices" control panel and then select the Sounds tab can you play some of the other system sounds at a fairly loud level?

    If so, exactly when do you get lower volume levels? Does this happen with certain programs?

    Can you give us the details of what you have checked so far? We have no way of know what you mean by, "all".

    Some details about the sound controller hardware being used as well as what operating system you are running may help us to help you. Do you have a separate sound card or is sound built-into the motherboard?

    So here is what I know. The volume is really low, whether it is coming out the rear line out, or the headphone line out. It is part of the IntelĀ® Desktop Board D975XBX2, IntelĀ® High Definition Audio (Sigmatel STAC9227) driver. I have downloaded the most up-to-date driver for the Audio. It said the maintenance was complete, but nothing changed. All volume levels are up on the mixer, and nothing is muted (i can still hear sound, it is just really low). Like I said before, when I receive a chat, the BING! is real loud. When I startup, the startup sound is real loud, but nothing else is. When I go into the sounds and click on the different types of system sounds, the volume is very low.
