Hey guys

I have absolutely zero hope that anyone can help me, but I'm about to decapitate the person nearest me, so I gotta try everything.

I've been running XP, hooked up to my stereo, I used to be heard in the next town over. I bought a Windows 7 machine and now all I get is a whimper. I've Googled this, I've tried downloading Realtek drivers, enabling "Loudness Equalization", and all that jazz and I can't do ANYTHING.

If anyone can help, please do. I feel molested. Conned. Ripped off. If I don't have my music back I can't be responsible for what I may do to any unfortunate Microsoft employees I find. I'm about to cry here...

Auxiliary cable. Jack-to-jack.
That shouldn't matter considering that's how I connected my XP laptop. Analogue is the future.

Control Panel>
Sound>

That only works to a degree. If it was something immediately changeable I'd have not come here.

Win7 is on a desktop, while the XP is on the laptop - which further befuddles me.

sometimes people miss the obvious so i usually start there

however, are you using the headphone out or the LINE out on a sound card on the desktop
they have different impedance and output levels

on the desktop - the lineout would drive amplified speakers
also the sound card can be set to provide different formats 5.1 etc

whats the make and model of the PC
and did you buy a seperate sound card or are you using the one integrated into the motherboard ?
