Windows 7: 2.1 Stereo System - Using headphones ->volume is soft...

2.1 Stereo System - Using headphones ->volume is soft...

Hi All

I have a 2.1 Stereo System with 2 normal laptop speakers and a small sub. Now the system comes with a control knob where you can plug your headphones into. Problem is, with the headphones plugged in, the max volume (maxed out in Sound, Media Player and on the headphones them self) is too soft...

How can I increase the volume on the headphones? Software? Drivers? or do I need a better sound card?

I have a standard Microsoft High Definition Audio Device Sound Card (Came with the MSI motherboard - onboard)

Thank you

Visit MSI and get the proper sound driver instead of the default Windows driver.

Thank you Stormy13, I downloaded he latest Realtek HD Audio driver (actually released 3 days ago) and it has some great enhancements, equalizers etc, but at full max(headphones), the sound is stll soft...no improvement there really...So I guess I need a better soundcard or some hardware boost?
