Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook

Lack of volume

I can't get the sound to be audible enough when watching a video. It seems to be attenuated. Is there a way to increase the volume level besides going to the volume control?

    Hi, I'm well aware of the process that you mentioned and I've exhausted that aspect of it. I spoke with someone in reference to my situation and he said that I need to purchase external speakers in order to enhance the volume, the speaker output is minimum, but it works better with CDs.or headphones. Do you find that to be the same situation with your computer?

    Hi there!
    That makes a lot of sense. The separate power source seem to be the way to go. I'll check that out! I really like my computer, but the volume situation is the only portion that I'm not happy with. So, thanks for the information and have a blissful New Year!;

You can try to turn the volume up on the laptop itself or in the video program itself. If you haven't already double click on the speaker icon in your tray and make sure the appropriate volume is turned up

    To embelish on the advice the other person gave you, It would be better to get external speakers with a seperate power source. If you get speakers that need to be plugged in to the wall you will get a lot more noise out of them

No volume when playing movies


The Problem> Sound: Placing the mouse pointer over the ICON to the lower right of your screen should indicate the percentage of Volume your speakers are adjusted for. Right click and you get the Open Volume Mixer section. The playback devices can be your computer speakers or a separate headset with microphone. Here you can make adjustments accordingly. At the bottom are Volume Control Options that allow you to increase or decrease the audio reception. Generally, when you insert an external Headphone with Microphone into the sound port in; an automatic disconnect may occur preventing computer speakers from working. This is common with Laptops. If you lack sound, you may need to update the sound drivers, change cables, and/or check to see if the speakers work on another device.

How do i increase sound for you tube


If it's general sound on your laptop that is soft, you can try checking Control Panel > Sound > Playback > (Right-click your sound device you are using) > Properties, check if the volume is at 100, and try using the Equalizer enhancement and putting all the freqeuncies on max, and you can check your volume mixer.

If it is just youtube, try watching the videos in VLC, by doing this: http://www.thesofthelp.com/2009/08/how-to-solve-low-volume-problem-of.html

How to increase speaker volume


Use VLC media player to play videos. It supports almost all format and plays videos smoothly. It can increase your sound to upto 400% . but be careful. Use full volume only when the sound is less or the speaker may get damaged.

Re Sony VAIO F12 (new unit): Audio is barely audible using onboard and external speakers, even though volume bar indicates volume is at highest level. Any way to increase audio volume? Thanks.


1. Yes, check to see if you have the volume up for the wave file turned up that is on the program you are using to listen to the Mp3 or sound wave with.
2. check the speaker connector/ Use another speaker that is know to be good and test. Use a set of earphone in the output jack also to test the output.
If these things are doing the same then you have failing sound card and it needs replacement.

My new Acer Aspire one D 250 laptop has a very low volume output . All the volume controls are up including wave output but with no success


Right click on the speaker icon in the task bar, lower right hand corner of the screen.
Select "Adjust Audio Properties."
In the popup box, go down to "Speaker Volume." Click "Advanced"
In the new pop-up, make sure that "Laptop speakers" is selected. Click all the OKs you need to in order to establish that setting and clear out of "Adjust audio properties."
Now you SHOULD have much better sound from your speakers.
For some reason, my D250 keeps defaulting to "Stereo headset" which produces much lower volume sounds when a headset is not inserted. So low that you can't watch and hear a video through the speakers and understand what is being said. Once you switch to "laptop speakers" you'll be able to hear stuff. It won't be high volume, these things just don't put out high volume, but it will be reasonably audible, if this was the problem.

Want to increase volume on speakers


You may have already reached the limits if you have adjusted the settings through Control Panel (?). Are these external speakers you are listening through or is it the internal speaker?
In Control Panel (reached from the Start button, bottom left), choose Sounds and Audio Devices. The Volume tab is the first one. Make sure the Device volume slider bar is all the way to the right. Next,choose Advanced and make sure all those slider bars are up to the top with no Mute boxes checked. Finally, at the bottom choose Speaker Volume and make sure those slider bars are all the way to High.
If none of these help and you're using external speakers, it is time to buy a new set. If you only have an internal speaker you're listening with, keep in mind that they aren't powerful enough to give you the kind of volume needed to listen to some things on the web.
Let me know if you have any further questions. Please rate my answer.

Crackling Audio


Is there any other programs running in the background IE Anti-Virus programs, or anything that could be using quite alot of Memory other the stuff your watching?
It could be either down to Lack of Memory being allocated to the Audio & Video (Probably the case if the machine has built in Shared Sound & Video Card). Try opening Task Manager and setting the Application that you use to play Music/Movies to High Priority.
If it's not that try lowering the Master Volume on the Mixer Device by going into the Volume Properties in the Task Tray (By the Clock).
