I have ac 97 onboard audio and I just stuck in a Creative Soundblaster Live card. I have disabled the ac 97. My speakers are nothing great( getting ready to buy new ones) but the problem is that the sound is significantly lower with the volume maxed and I know these speakers played much louder under the ac 97 audio. Is this just a matter of me needing to tweak the graphic equalizer or does the new sound card detect that my speakers are crap and will only play them at this volume?
Also, now I can't hear the modem dial out, the auxillary volume is not muted. I use Windows ME.
I am lost.
Any help will be appreciated
