    I'm having a problem with Windows Media Player volume. Until yesterday, I had the volume all the way down at 9, and it was plenty loud through my earphones. Turning all the way up was actually painful. All of a sudden, it now has to be all the way up to 100, and is not as loud as it was on 9. Spoken voice is nearly inaudible. I checked the Control Panel, and the sound volume is full blast. The earphones are plugged in properly. Any ideas?

    First thing, make sure the "Wave" slider in the volume control isn't buried at the bottom of it's scale.

    What about your sound card driver’s app. Some sound cards have a secondary application that also controls sound and volume. It’s usually in the start menu. Check that out. Also make sure that you don’t have a shortage in the cord.
