    Question Long story

    As most of you know, i don't know that much about puters.Just learning , and learning.
    Here is the deal.Two weeks ago my mobo,proc.,fans,etc went to hell.
    I took it to the shop.They made me a new one, all except my old HD.Got the thing home and find that my volume is about half then before.
    I did all the things of course,volume control etc.
    I call the shop, ask what the prob. is, do i need a sound card, and of course why would i???Guy says no, i think it's the speakers.Now, my question is, why would it be the speakers, if they were perfectly fine before???Help...i need my music back at blast, LOL

    What I would do:

    1. Test the speakers with another computer, just to verify that they work properly on another computer.
    2. If speakers pass that test, take them into the shop and demand that he hook them up to one of his computers to test them. Assuming they work properly there, tell him to fix "his" problem.
    3. You can always add a sound card, however that is more money out of your pocket.

    Don't wait, warranties can be short for some OEM equipment. This will be a learning experience which ever way it goes. It is unfortunate that the dealer doesn't want to stand behind his work.

    Maybe next time you will feel confident to do the work yourself.

    Maybe you need a better driver?

    Here is the deal.
    Did driver updates etc. today.Nothing helped.Callt the shop, and one of the guys told me, that the mobo has a on board sound card vs my old system.LOL
    I told him i want my old sound card back..or else I was to stupid to take my old stuff back,LOL
    So, i'll take it in in a few days, and hopefully the problem will be solved.
    As always, thank you for your help guys.

    For future reference, always keep the old components. You should have a processor and mobo, sound card, maybe a nic and modem. Keep all . You never know when you may need one of them.
