    Do you have speakers / headset? If speakers you should upgrade to Headsets ( if you play games get wired but if you watch movies get wireless ones so you can move around while listening to your movie ;) )

    Speakers usualy dont produce great sound unles you have surround sound around your ears or something =D

    useing both speakers and headset same problem both ways. but I just put my old creative sound card back in and that works fine. I guess the sabrent card is bad
