Sound is very quiet

The sound is very quiet and can barely be heard and even when I mute the sound I can still hear that very quiet sound. Tried reinstalling drivers but nothing changed, still the same.

Yes, I did. No matter what I do its always the same and like I said before even with sound muted I can still hear it, just very quiet.

I suppose that you have a simple set of two speakers,are those plugged in the (usually) green input at the backplate of your motherboard?Did you try playing with the connector,a bit in or out?Can you verify that the speaker set is operational?

its not my computer and I'm using headphones which work perfectly fine on my computer. Yes, its plugged in the green input, though have tried all inputs/outputs just in case, but only while plugged in the green input that little sound can be heard.

Communications(microphone) Causes All sound to go quiet
Please help! I have it set in the option under control panel>sound> communications to NOT reduce the volume when using the mic, but it does it anyway. I believe it happened when i installed Realtek audio drivers (which did nothing...) but maybe screw up the fact that my computer was working the...

Microphone way too quiet. Tried two different mics and sound cards.
Audio samples at various gains/input levels My microphone is picking up sound WAY too quiet (even with it at max input level). I can boost up the gain to max (20% for Soundcard, 30% for on-board) and the voice quality it picks up is good, however with the amount of gain used there's hissy noise...

RealTek Quiet Sound
Hello All, I'm running XP32 bit and W7 64Bit in dual boot. On W7 the audio at max volume is less than what Xp volume is at 50%. Using latest 2.35 drivers and all settings in the control panel seem to be correct. Any ideas? Oliver
