Tonight I went to a lan party, and when i got there a few things changed.
(i use headphones)
Normaly i have the volume about 60% and wav volume about 15%.
when i got there, i ended up putting both at 100% and it was almost as loud as normal.
When i got back i noticed my extension to my headphones was shorting out, stereo/mono
so i pluged the headphones directly into the computer, its stereo again, but the volume is way less
