Can't turn up the volume in Vista.

June 18, 2013 at 15:52:00
Specs: Windows Vista
I know where the volume and balance controls are, but I can't get the volume above a wisper on my remote wired speakers or earphones. There is no sound on the front earphone jack.

I have my sound card connected to my home stereo. That way, I have full control & the sound is much better.

Is this something that has suddenly happened? Is it a new build? Can you try the speakers & headset in an mp3 player, phone or whatever, just to confirm that it is definitely a problem with the computer?

First, make sure you have the speakers plugged into the correct socket - for normal stereo speakers it's usually the lime-green one on the rear. The front jack problem may simply be that the header isn't connected to the motherboard.

Do you get a pop-up of any sort when you plug in ore remove the speakers/headset?

As well as the standard Windows sound volume you may have more controls in Control Panel - look for something labelled Realtek, or anything else sound related - you may have it set to some weird 'ambience' option.
