fetz, to get most volume, unplug audigy, go to Windows sound controls and increase volume to maximum (or use front sound controls), then plug Audigy back in and you will start from a much higher level of volume. Audigy sound volume is relative to the volume settings set before it's plugged in. Make sure youw Wave volume in Windows is also at maximum
The reason why some people disable onboard sound is due to IRQ conflicts... I sure seen many blue screens. Usually it occurs when I plug it my headset's headphone and mic plugs at the same time... IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error on blue screen pops up... Anyone knows how to fix that?
I have XPS M170 BIOS A05, so no option to disable onboard sound in BIOS
If I uninstall drivers for onboard audio, can I still play through notebook speakers using Audigy using Feature Mode Selection Utility?
