can't increase volume

August 15, 2007 at 18:58:09
Specs: Win XP Pro, intel/1G

The volume on my computer is really quiet yet I can't increase it any more. I have all volume settings maximized: on the volume icon in the task tray (bottom right on my screen), on the keyboard, on the speakers themselves, in the main volume control dialogue box (through control panel), and even in the advanced settings. It's still really quiet though.

You may have the wires connected wrong.

I checked the wires and they're connected pretty securely.

1 - desktop

2 - not really. But I just added speakers and it's quieter than it was before. Before, I had the audio cord connected to the monitor. It was a little louder than the speakers are now but not by much.

Are you talking about powered speakers? 3 ways are quite inexpensive anymore and most have enough power to boost the sound up considerably

I also think response 1 meant that you have the wires plugged into the wrong jack. (not if they are secure)

I don't think they're powered (no cable except those going into the computer). There is some sound coming out so I must have it plugged into the right port.

that is your problem then, you'll have to buy some powered speakers
