    Have you checked your mixer settings, so that your volume level isn't just turned down?

    Strange... do you have any unusual setup, like digital sound or anything? Is there anything special with this SoundMAX card?

    Yeah, but do you have like a digital link to the speakers or anything? Is there anything in particular that is special with this sound card?
