I just built my PC a couple months ago, so it's relatively new. For some reason, my audio on my PC has suddenly become much quieter a few days ago. It used to be that when I was using my headset, if I turned the volume all the way up it would be loud enough that someone sitting next to me could hear it, but now even I have trouble hearing stuff with the volume all the way up and my headset on. At first I thought it was a problem with my headset, so I bought a new headset, but I still have the same problem. I don't know if this is a problem with my drivers or if my audio jack has become damaged. I checked, and it looks like all my drivers are up-to-date. I have no idea what could have caused this. One day it worked perfectly, and the next I could barely hear anything.

 

Thanks for your help!

And you've tried a secondary set of cheap headsets? (DO the headsets themselves have a volume adjustment knob, either on the cable, or, on an earpiece?

 

WHich OS? (All sliders in assorted menus checked?)

 

Try a set of cheap PC speakers on the PC sound output in question...

The weirdest thing just happened. I plugged in some speakers and the volume seemed normal. Then I plugged my headset back in, and the volume has returned to normal. I have no idea what caused this, but I guess my problem has been solved! So thanks, I guess.
