Hey! I had this problem when I first got my computer by I was so happy with it, I let it slide...
Here's the problem: I have two(left, right) speakers and a subwoofer. With ALL available options jacked up, I still get barely any sound from the speakers. Just barely.
Also, another problem the front panel audio ports (for my headset/mic) won't register my headset (which IS compatible) but the the 'Front' green port on the back panel registers my headphones, and so does the mic port in the back panel.
My dxdiag is as follows:

I hope the info provided helps in some way. The speaker box did say they were compatible with Vista, and the computer was purchased through ibuypower.com. I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!
