I have a Microstar laptop with an AC97 onbooard sound chip. Recently, the volume through both the speakers and the headphone/line out socket has reduced significantly for all sound sources (Windows beeps as well as music). I have checked all the various volume sliders and they are all ay maximum.

Is my sound chip on the way out or is there a problem with drivers. I'd apreciate any advice.
