I just got my computer back after sending it back to the company to fix the motherboard. Well, now I can just BARELY hear the sound coming out of my speakers even with the volume cranked up on the speakers and set to max in volume controls.

The sound output is so quite, I initially thought my computer wouldn't output sound at all, so I uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. Now I come to this forum, desperate to know, how do make the sound at a normal audible level?

I know you said you adjusted the sound in volume controls, but I think this is where your problem lies. Depending on your OS, you'll have 2 places you can adjust the sound settings. Look down in your system tray (by the clock), do you see a little speaker there? Double click it to bring up the volume controls. You'll need to not only adjust the volume levels, but also the Wave and possibly CD player controls. Start by matching the wave with the volume, try something in the middle. Then play a sound file, or CD or whatever music you might have.

If no luck, go into control panel and go to sounds and audio devices. Check the device volume, also check the speaker set-up. You have speaker volume control here, as well as speaker settings. Click the tab at the top for audio, make sure the default device is correct.

Hope this helps. :tazz:

Summarizing what I have found out (I'll go more in depth later), my audio out jack is ruined (due to the motherboard, I assume). I changed the sound mode to 4 speaker surround and have my desktop speakers set to the rear speakers. They are hooked up to what would have normally been the audio input jack, which evidently works. Now I just need to find a way to get audio out for desktop speakers going through the audio in jack. I wish there was a program that could do that for me :tazz:

Kind of a confusing picture there, will just go with the first and say both aren't working? Line-in and out? Can't change them as far as I know and putting in the time if it was possible would be not worth it much. Don't believe there is anything you can do manually in win32 to change those outputs.
Now I'll assume you have tried both jacks for your audio and have only one wire that needs to go into the jack and tested both jacks with that one wire....so with RMA for a replacement again or just go out and buy a PCI sound card.
