Is this because by default the seperate sound source volumes are set at 50% even though the overall master volume is at 100?

Have you tried upping the individual volume level for a particular program in the audio mixer while it is running?

For me, it's the opposite. Everything is much louder with my sound card.

I would say update your driver.

Windows Experience Index lower than in Vista?
Hi, my WEI in Vista was 5.9 across the board. Now, in Windows 7 Beta, my Hard Drive speed is down to 2.9!!:cry: It's RAID, so I'm sure it's got to be over 5.9. Anyone else experience this? Thanks!
