Sound volume is weak.

Here is a strange issue.
Maybe easy for some... on a Dual boot XP and SuSE 9.1 Pro

On my dual boot system, (SuSE has the correct drivers) the sound volume is weak.
With system and all volume controlls turned all the way up, it is at about 1/8 of what Windows will play at.

Is there a setting someplace?

This is an Asus on-board soun card that SuSE found and installed correctly. I get sound, but weak.
The card is showing as working properly, but is like it is being quelched.

Any ideas anyone has come across?

Thanks in advance...
