If you look in the Device Manager at the Sound, video and game controllers do you see any errors?

Do you have two sound outputs on your computer for the speakers? If you have a speaker out and a line out, they will have different signal levels, the line out being smaller.

There are audio outputs on some cards that will have multiple outputs, but these generally will be for specific applications, such as 2.1 or more speaker systems. These will have specific outputs for front left front, front right, and sub-woofer, and any combination with other surround systems utilizing more speakers.

The outputs of these types of 2.1 or more speaker systems will have specific output jacks color coded to their application.

The line in and line out, are not interchangeable. The signal level will be inconsequential because they are input and output signals, completely different applications of the audio system.

I'm refering to some cards which have both a line level out and a speaker out, one of which has enough amplitude to drive speakers without the need for the speaker to have an internal amplifier.

Creative made alot of these types of cards, I don't know if they still do. I just wanted to verify that the wire was in the right green hole before we started software troubleshooting.

The first post left me wondering. The second makes more sense.

Have you checked the settings on the XP volume icon, which should be in your taskbar/quick launch area?
