Sound issues

I just recently purchased this laptop, and everything is great except audio is too quite.

I found some posts suggesting going in to the THX software and changing it to External speakers, which probably resulted in a 25% boost in volume. I would say my Studio 17 has easily 50-100% louder volume out of speakers. What I don't get is, I have a Turtle Beach USB surround sound spdif card I use to power my EarForce X41 surround headphones and..... they are quite as hell.

I just don't get it, I could previously cause my teeth to hurt with this combo, now I can only make the volume barely irritating. Even more odd, if I enabled the EQ in the turtle beach control panel it easily doubles the volume, so its a software issue obviously.

I tried removing the THX software, but it didn't work.

Any suggestions?
I did it because I was looking for a project and it was either take over the world... or learn French. So I took over the world.
