View Full Version : too quiet!
03-06-03, 06:32 PM
my onboard sound chip is ac 97 and it is painfully quiet. i dont know much about sound cards or drivers but as far as i know everything is cranked including all sliders in the volume control icon. My speakers used to go very loud on my old motherboard.
What do i do to get some more volume?!
Have you tried getting the latest drivers?

The volume level on AC97 soundcards varies alot. Some motherboards will give decent levels, some will be very silent.

no, as far as i know, ac 97 sound is not a brand but a standard of sound chips, and i dont know the brand or model of my chip. how do i find this out?

Si sandra should tell ya everything ya need to know. I have the a7v8x with built in sound and was not pleased with performance as well. I even down loaded the latest drivers from the board maker and still was disappointed. Yesterday I bought the sb audigy 2 . needless to say I find it much more to my liking. Bottom line : if your an audiophile, the on board sound will not be enough. If your a heavy gamer,on board sound will not be enough. If your the average pc user/number cruncher/online web browser/ on board sounds is gonna 'do you just fine..........tr
