This is a very small thing that has become very frustrating as I am usually able to fairly quickly diagnose and fix PC problems on my own. Every system sound, such as the sound it makes when you connect or disconnect a USB device is far quiter than it should be. Other sounds such as music, vidoes, games and teamspeak are fine. System Sounds are at full volume in the windows volume mixer, which is the only thing I have been able to find on google. Any ideas?
Apparently I was a little hasty to post this. I switched from google to bing for my search and discovered an audio setting regarding communications I had forgotten about that reduces sound volume by 80% when communications are detected. For some reason it was only affecting system sounds.
