Dell Inspiron 1525 only has a pair of 2 Watt speakers, there's nothing wrong with any setting or your computer, they are just very weak speakers.

If you have identical sound hardware and drivers then it has to be the speakers. I wouldn't necessarily call it a defect unless you've compared the sound output with the exact model. Laptop speakers are so small you can get more sound out of a small set of MP3 player expansion speakers plugged in to the headphone jack.

Dell 1721

Hi Tom,
The Inspiron 1720 &1721 series was released more than a year ago and is no longer available new, only refurbished. The comparbable machines currently on the market is the Inspiron 1525 & 1526 series. The 1525 &1526 series are comparable in price and specs, and the specs are a little better as far as graphics and sound cards. The 1730 series is still available, but it has a price of approx $2500. Hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
