My sister has a new computer and there seems to be a problem w/ the sound card. The problem is as follows: the sound is very faint w/ the master volume turned all the way up. The card is a RealTek ALC888 7.1+2 Channel High Definition Audio Codec. I have uninstalled the original drivers and installed the Vista Driver (32/64 bits) Driver only version R1.78 High Definition Audio Codecs, from the RealTec site. I have adjusted all of the settings many times and still the problem still persists. I am on the verge of getting her to buy a new card. Is there anything that you guys can think of that I may be missing?
Any help would be appreciated,
BTW, the PC is an HP Pavilion a1250n running Vista, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ w/ 2G of ram if that helps.
