Wierd Sound PLZ HELP

Specs: Windows 8.1
I recently built a pc and the sound with my headphones were working perfectly but after a few days i turned it on after school and the sound when i watched a video was really really low at max volume and speech in vids are fuzzy and muffled and can only hear loud music.
I called the guy that I bought the parts from he said its issue with drivers and could it be cause I didn't install the drivers with the disks i got cuz i didnt include a disk drive in my build so i cant use the disks. I downloaded the drivers manually.
I downloaded everything from here which is for my motherboard drivers:

And I downloaded the gtx 960 driver from the Nvidia website

He also said windows update could of installed the wrong driver.
SOMEONE PLZ HELP I WANT PROPER SOUND.
Build:
AMD FX-8350 8 core
Evga GeForce GTX 960
Asrock 970 extreme3 R2.0
8 GB ram
120GB Kingston SSD

Click on the speaker icon in the tray (lower right corner) and adjust the speaker volume from there. It sounds like you might have the system volume too low and have cranked the speaker's volume too high to compensate. If this is the case then you are trying to over amplify a very minimal signal so what you hear may be the result. If you plan on using the speaker's volume control then try to keep the system volume control roughly in the middle range and adjust as needed to get the best overall sound (experiment some). If I am right, the fix is in and you are done. If I am wrong, you wasted 10 seconds...Maybe.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

If it was working for a few days it is odd that the drivers suddenly went wrong. If this is not a hardware fault it seems more likely it relates to something you have done.

Look in Device Manager and see if any errors are showing (usually yellow exclamation marks).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have a job to think of any fault on your computer that would make music loud and commentary low. More likely the way it happens to be on the website. Can you try one of these websites on another computer?

If you are using an equaliser and have set the bass and treble high compared to the rest this might cause it because speech is in the middle range. Sometimes instead of an equaliser you have "named settings" (church, hall, bathroom etc). Some other setting might help but then you might not like the sound of the music - it might have to be a compromise.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I don't really think there is any correct setting - more a matter of what you like best, bearing in mind both music and speech. There might be another setting that brings the voice up a bit.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Try turning off all effects that you can find. And set the volume
on every volume control to 60% or more. Each program that uses
sound has its own volume control in the Windows Sound Mixer
which is only available while the program is running.

I've previously heard of the situation where background music
is audible but foreground narration is not, or is terrible quality.

Check all the settings for Playback under Sound in the Control
Panel. You may be sending the front audio to the sub-woofer,
or to speakers you don't have, instead of to the front speakers.
