OK sorry! I get carry away some times.
take a look the computer itself (not the monitor). it should have the model of the machine on it. if you turn the machine around, it should have the manufacture name and the machine model on a sticker.
if you don't find any of these things, then it is a custom build machine, you have to find out who builded. he or she should able to answer my questions.

I am having problems adjusting volume

What type of laptop HP , ASUS , COMPAQ , ACER ?..........
Up the Volume on My HP Laptop
Open the "Start" menu and click on the "Control Panel" icon.
Locate and open the icon that deals with sound.
Depending on your version of Windows, it will say either "Sounds and Audio Devices" or "Adjust System Volume."
Adjust the volume under the "Speakers" icon.
To do this, click on the slider bar and move it up on the slider.
If you need to decrease the volume, simply move the slider bar down.
Click on "OK" when finished and close the "Control Panel" window.
Click on the speaker icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen for a faster volume adjustment. Simply move the slider bar up to increase the volume and move it back down to decrease the volume.

Volume on an Acer Laptop
Acer laptops are typically sold with pre-installed Windows operating systems that offer sound-adjustment features for increasing the volume on the laptop's built-in stereo speakers.
These same functions can also be used in tandem with external speakers or headphones to increase the volume, as well as mute all sound on the laptop.
If the computer should output an unusually low volume, fixing the problem may be no more involved than sliding a control switch with the computer mouse. Click once on the speaker icon in the taskbar on the lower-right corner to open a rectangular window with a slide control.
Click and hold the left mouse button on the slide control to drag it upward, increasing the volume to the laptop's maximum setting.
Click the "Mixer" button below the slider control to open another window with volume controls for "Speakers" and "Applications," adjusting each slide control upward to increase the volume.
Be sure the speaker icon below each control is not accidentally muted.
Click once on each speaker icon to remove the red circle with a slash through it, which will restore audio.
Click the Microsoft flag or "Start" button in the lower-left corner if the shortcut speaker icon is missing from the taskbar.
Click "Control Panel" to select "Adjust Sounds" from the Hardware and Sounds category.

Audiophile 2496 no sound

try either right click the speaker icon on the bottom right hand corner of the screen "open volume mixer" click :devices" and select the card you installed. if that fails, go to device manager and disable any other cards the the computer has so it wont conflict. if that fails take it into geeksquad at best buy to see what is going on.

My laptop sound is not working

First reboot, if you sound has worked before this may help. If not try a different file or you tube video it may be that the file doesnt have sound. Third mke sure your physical button on the laptop is turned up, and Fourth the speaker icon in the bottom right hand corner, if you right click it is it muted? Is it turned down? Get a file or disc that you know has sound on it and that has played before. If this still doesnt work it is a possibility that your audio driver has become corrupt. Try looking for an updated audio driver by using either that manufactures web site or the Microsoft Custom tab when you update windows.

Hello i have a proble with my speakers they do not

If you are using Windows Vista, or XP: look in the bottom right corner of the screen and you will see a small speaker icon. Click on this. Next you will see a check box for "mute". Ensure this is not checked.

Also, in the search box under the Start File Menu (bottom left corner of screen {windows button} ) go to control panel: make sure that Control Panel Home in the top left corner is slected. If not, select it: then scroll down and click on sounds and hardware. Here you will be able to adjust audio devices, sounds. etc.

After you have made any changes, restart the computer to ensure the changes are made, and test the speakers.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Sound output is low nowadays even at full volume whereas before it was ok. I didn't change anything with my computer nor did I change my speakers.

Two possible causes.1) Vol Settings changed in windows2) Bad hardware
1) Check your system's sound settings:

For Xp
  • Goto Control Panel
  • Double Click Sound and Audio devices / Sound, Speech, and Audio Devices
  • In device Volume Click Advance
  • Master Volume Control Window will open
  • Increase all the volumes to max, also make sure that Mute us UNCHECKED.

  • From the bottom right corner of your screen in system tray, double click a small speaker icon and open Master Volume Control.

For Vista and Windows 7
  • From system tray (its at bottom right corner of your screen) double click on small speaker icon, it will open Volume mixer
  • Increase the volume to max.

2) If this does not work, then test your speakers by connecting it to some other system and vice versa.
If you get desired sound volume when you connect some other speakers to your system, then you have to change your speakers. And if your speakers are working fine on other system then you may have to purchase a new sound card.

I did something on the internet and now my speakers don't work anymore. The icon at the bottom right hand corner is gone. What can I do to hear again? I don't have the manual for the speakers to refer back...

Looks like your audio drivers have gone. have you tried system restore? Go to start, all programs, system tools system restore, then choose a previous date when your sound was still ok.

My compiter sound is not working

If you are running windows,go to the bottom right-hand corner where the clock is and click on the little red arrow. A little row of icons pops out-there should be a little picture of a speaker, left click it and make sure the slider is all the way to the top and that the mute check-box is not selected. If that dosent help go to Start-Control Panel-Sounds Speech and Audio Devices-Sounds and Audio Devices and make sure that the Mute option isnt selected in the Volume or Audio Tabs. Also make sure that the volume slider are at maximum and that you click 'apply' for the changes to be applied.
