Question about PC Desktops
If your audio adapter stays only on low volume, even if audio settings are correct, and reinstalling updated drivers did not help, then the audio adapter is faulty.
For about $20 you can buy and install a replacement PCI audio cards with far better performances that the built in audio adapter:
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy SE PCI Sound Card

Check for any other software that is running and set to 'mute'. The slider only displays the status of the volume mixer device, and the device itself is shared between all the programs - if any of them changes the volume, others should move their sliders accordingly (if they don't, it means they are sloppily written.) If one program keeps muting the volume, setting it in another won't help.
Also check if (if you have a laptop or a multimedia keyboard) the 'volume down' key isn't stuck. Thanks.
