Speakers sound too soft

Hi, I just built a new pc and I plugged in my standard stereo 3.5mm jack speakers. At 100% volume, I can barely hear anything.

I updated to the latest Realtek HD drivers. I've also double checked all the sound settings. I then plugged the speakers into my macbook pro and they sounded just fine. I also plugged in a set of earphones into the front audio jack and those sound good as well.

Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks.

My build:
msi 770 c45
AMD Phenom II x2
1 tb WD caviar black
HIS Radeon HD 4850

edit: I found a quick fix to this solution. I just plugged in the speakers and when the Realtek hd audio popped up asking me what the speakers were for, I just chose "headphones." The sound is louder but only at a medium volume when turned all the way up. If anyone knows a permanent fix, that would be great. Thanks!
