Problem with Windows sounds in XP

    I'm using the onboard sound on an Asus A7V333, and sound for winamp, games, and other stuff work perfectly. However, when I get any Windows sounds (error messages, etc), only a fraction of the sound is played. I'm using the drivers that came with the mobo, and I've also tried the newest drivers from windowsupdate.com. Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

    Other Computer Stats:
    Asus A7V333
    Athlon XP 2100+
    Asus GeForce4 MX 440
    512MB PC2700

    Thanks!

    Someone else had the same problem but I don't think they have found a fix......yet.

    I found someone else that uses an Asus and XP and has the same problem as I do.. I wonder why I didn't hear about this before I got the mobo. :( I'm going to stick an SB in the computer and hope that fixes it.

    I've found out that this is a pretty common problem with people that use Asus' and XP.. I wonder why I hadn't heard about this before.. and why there isn't a solution. :(
