Hi experts. I was happy this morning because my boss decided that I deserved a better computer than the Pentium II 400 Windows-95-based piece of junk I was using.
Everythink works fine so far, save for the speakers. This new CPU has a built-in mono speaker at the back of the case, which sounds fine but I prefer using my stereo desktop speakers.
However, when I plug the external speakers into the soundcard, the built-in speaker goes silent, but the external ones do not produce a sound as loud as they did with my old cpu, or even as loud as the current built-in speaker. Of course I already adjusted all the volume properties, and even disabled the "system speaker" hardware profile, but that did not solve the problem.
Note that my stereo speakers are not powered, but sounded fine anyhow with the old equipment.
Thanx a lot for your help.
