I got a very strange problem where my volume is very low. This is not Linux specific either. I get the same issue in Windows as well. My sound is all the way up but I can barely hear it. I thought perhaps the onboard audio may have died so I popped in a SB Live card and get the same thing. Anyone have a clue what may be causing this? It's not the speakers I've already tried 3 different sets + headphones all with the same result.

I suppose the first thing to try would be to bring up a terminal window and run "alsamixer". Make sure all the "master" & "pcm" volumes are at 100%.

I've done all this.
