I want to use my headphones to listen to music and Games on my PC but the sound i get is to low. I have set the Master and Wave volume bars to the Top and i have the Speaker settings to "Stero Headphones". I also have looked up the net and tryed to find a "Volume Booster" with no success and i dont want to use the speakers because of family watching the TV with the two sounds clashing Can sumone please help??

do your microphone's have a volume control on them? also have you tried updating the driver for your soundcard? sounds like you have an onboard card..you may need to update the whole chipset to get the driver for the audio

You know when i come to think of it the driver for the sound card is a bit doddgy i think i downloaded a Driver ID and it ID'd the driver as a "Intel® 97 Audio Controller" which i thought was a bit odd but installed it anyway. how do i find out if that is the real driver?
