Go through some troubleshooting with rshaffer61 first... but if you end up needing a sound card, probably any of them that are compatible with Windows 7 will do you just fine if this is for gaming purposes.

rshaffer, maybe a driver didn't install correctly, or didn't install at all?

  • Go to Start (Windows Logo)
  • Right Click "Computer"
  • Select Properties
  • In the left pane at the top,
    Click "Device Manager"
  • Are there any red X's or yellow question marks?
If so, this is a driver problem if it's the sound card that has the exclamations.

Also, have you tried just updating your driver? Or trying an older driver? Did you use the motherboards disk drivers or did you download them from the manufacturers website?

Follow rshaffer's steps first, then mine. Good Luck, :D

Thanks Ferrari and even with a new system the installed drivers may already be out of date and we will check on that also. I just want to make sure the volume issue is either software or a hardware issue. This will check the OS first to make sure if there maybe a setting not right.
Then we can check the drivers for sure after that.

You loaded the driver from the MOBO disk correct?
Can you give me the MOBO make and model again and I will see if there is a newer driver available. Maybe there is a known issue with it and the manufacturer may have a fix for it also.

OK I found the newest driver HERE dated for 2\11\2010 version number 6.0.1.6037/5.10.0.60
That is the newest straight from Asus.
Drop down menus are as followed:
Motherboard
LGA1366
Rampage III Extreme
Then you will have to pick your OS as Win 7
Then scroll down the list to Audio
