my sound card is the SB audigy 2 zs platinum. Back in XP the drivers
usually worked fine and produced the right 'loudness' of sound.
in vista i had to try a few different sets of drivers but got it working correct.
however in windows 7 the drivers that were automatically installed upon the OS installation do NOT play audio at the regular decibel levels.
It seems to only produce sound at the 50%-70% levels compared to XP/vista. i know this for a fact since i've done testing. it's annoying to have the volume up 100% all the time with it STILL not being loud.
any ideas? thanks.
