Sound problem between PC and Amp

I've had my PC connected to my amp via an optical audio toslink cable. Never had any issues until last week when I noticed the sound levels were very low. Turning up the amp to extremely high volume works, but when I switch the amp from PC duties to TV I inevitably forget to turn it down.

I've checked my sounds settings and can't see any issues there so assumed it was the cable. I've just replaced the cable but still the same problem.
Can anyone advise what I should try next, or what info you might need to help me sort the sound issue out.?

Check windows audio mixer and that the digital output volume is not set too low, also try rerunning the windows speaker configuration for that output.

Last resort option is go into your media player and try enabling audio normalization.

For example in VLC go to preferences->audio->normalize.

I've tried the above but everything seems to be set up as it should be. I think my next port of call is the amp.
Not looking forward to worming my way around the back of the amp though!

Well you could check if the amp has auto volume level that might correct the difference between the two.
