Ever since I was forced to use my recovery dvd to fix VISTA after an unrecoverable crash that damaged and corrupted my drivers,
I have been unable to turn up the volume on my laptop to a decent level at all.
The sound is working and so are my speakers because when i test the audio device the test sound (Jingle) plays at the correct volume.
It also plays at the correct volume when I configure the Speakers so it cant be a driver problem can it?
I`ve tried connecting external speakers (VERY) loud ones but It`s still low.
The Master Volume and all levels are at max.
It cant be the Apps i`m using I dont think, because all system alerts (Beeps ect. ect.) are low too.
Please help, It`s driving me insane! :thumbsup:

I`m using an advent laptop with VISTA home premium.

I would appreciate any help or advice at all. Thanks.
