Poor sound level on Sound blaster 5.1 vx


BOBFIX

Likes # 0

Hi, I have just installed a new SB 5.1 VX card in my Pc after my old SB Live 5.1 failed. All indications are that the card was successfully installed, I have the latest drivers but to get a barely decent volume ( i.e enough to drown out the T.V) I have to have all the all the sliders up to 100%. At this level set on my old card, I would have no ear wax left!!! Have tried different headphones/speakers to no avail. Any ideas or have I bought a knackered card. BB
