Laptop volume too low

I've checked that all my volume/speaker settings are maxed out under Control Panel and Taskbar. This isn't a new thing, my laptop has always had low volume. I really don't want to get external speakers or use headphones. Would getting a new soundcard help? Are there any sound boosting programs I can DL? Trying to watch DVDs and especially Netflix is hard with me having to sit really close to the computer.

Re: Laptop volume too low

Try opening all of the media players you have on your system and turn up the volume on those. Windows Media Player, etc., whether you're using them or not. I seem to remember that working years ago when it was driving me nuts.

Unless it's just a really quiet laptop and your ambient noise is high and that's just how it is. Chances are your sound is integrated into the motherboard.

Re: Laptop volume too low

Thanks for the help Donnie. I tried maxing all of my player volumes and it didn't seem to help. Are there any audio enhancers or anything else that would help? Are there any plugin sound cards that would boost my volume? It seems like my laptop just doesn't put out much sound in it's stock condition.

Re: Laptop volume too low

I don't know if this works in other operating systems, but if you have windows 7, right click on your volume icon in the system tray area. Select Playback devices. Right click on your speakers (should have a green checkmark on them). Select Properties. Go to the Enhancements tab. Check "Loudness Equalization" and Apply the changes.

I had a similar problem until I did this. Worked miracles for me.

Totally worked Gorg, thanks! I had done this before but I think that I had clicked the "OK" instead of the "APPLY" button. The sound is about 30 to 40% louder than before.

Re: Laptop volume too low

Glad you posted that Gorg, I haven't dug into the sound stuff on Windows 7 much, and was just reminded I have long-forgotten sound card sitting in my PC, doing nothing. LOL I thought I'd given it away
