PC audio to loud VS DAW output?

For the life od me,..

When playing youttube and music, mp3 on my PC the volume is at 5/100.
My daw is just cranked. The mixer is CRANKED for the output or I dont get any volume.

The slightest boo boo on the PC sends screaming rock music from windows audio at enormous levels. I have direct audio set fine on my mixer.

The mixer is Alesi mastercontrol and although its just what I need any inputs and outputs from DAW or Direct monitor is a whisper quiet.

Is this line level or +10/-4 DB thingamajig

At this point im thinking to ebay the mastercontrol. Its so so very quiet and my PC SCREAMS!

When I import the same MP3 into my DAW its just as loud! My synths and pre amps and guitars are CRANKED to the point they clip and I simply cant hear them!
