Buy some external speakers or use headphones is the only real way - laptop speakers aren't generally designed to play music. You may be able to mess around a bit with bass levels if you go into Control Panel and look to see if there's an 'audio manager' icon (Realtek cards, for example, will have a 'Realtek Audio Manager') and there may be some options in there to change sound characteristics.

Also changing the sound adapter sometimes helps. I've used an external usb sound adapter that had better reproduction than the built in one.

You could also try RIGHT clicking on your speaker icon in your taskbar lower right (you may need to click on < at the left end of the icons there to reveal that), selecting
- Adjust Audio Properties, and look for a setting to select that boosts the bass or the overall output. Some sound software has that. .
- Open Volume Control - Options top left - Properties - there may be a Bass volume control you can select that is hidden by default.
.............

In some cases the speaker icon does not reliably show up in your taskbar, or that hasn't been enabled.
Go to Control Panel (- Classic view) - Sounds and Audio Devices.

If there is no checkmark in the small box before Place volume icon in the taskbar, click on the blank box to insert a checkmark in it, click on OK at the bottom of the window.

If there IS a checkmark in the small box before Place volume icon in the taskbar, but the speaker icon is NOT in the taskbar - you may need to click on < at the left end of the icons there to reveal that - (I have had this problem frequently with Realtek sound adapter software / Realtek sound adapter chips), click on the box to remove the checkmark in it, click on OK at the bottom of the window, then go back there and click on the blank box to insert a checkmark in it, click on OK at the bottom of the window. The speaker icon will be there in the taskbar until after you have restarted Windows.
