Windows 7: System sounds are loud, everything else it too quiet

System sounds are loud, everything else it too quiet

when I got my Toshiba satellite it had been a display model and the audio driver had been deleted so when I downloaded one (realtek hd audio) the sound was really quiet even with the volume turned all the way up.
The weird part is that while the sound is quiet for things like videos and music it is loud for system sounds like the startup and pings.
I've gone into the control panel sound setting and checked but they were both up, I turned the system sounds down but I would like the regular audio to be louder if possible.

The preferred audio driver is the one from the PC vendor. Check with Toshiba for a driver for your exact model, as a first step.

update all the driver of your hardware...sound, chipset, bios, gpu...manually. then check every driver version for its validity. sometime it's the driver.
