Today I received this sound card :
it works, but it's sound is abnormaly low. It's so low that I had to crank up the sound all the way up on my amplified speakers and under mixerset under DOS as well as on the game itself (I tried doom) to get a normal sound. But as one can expect, doing this makes it sound like crap (a lot of hiss sounds, etc)
When I first got the card, these two jumpers were missing :
I don't think I placed them wrong (I tested both positions anyways), when they are in this position, the card should amplify the sound but it doesn't. The two big amplifiers are still becoming warm so I guess they still work.
What could be the problem here ? Bad caps ?
