VERY LOW VOLUME LEVEL ON SPEAKERS

EVEN WITH SPEAKER IKON AT 100%

Posted by on

  • kathyaquaria Jan 04, 2009

    The volume is improved quite a bit, but I would also like to know if there is a way to improve bass response. I also have a Dell notebook which has great bass sound when connected my external speaker system (with sub). This LG by comparison with the addad speakers does not have as good a bass. Is there some way to adjust that? Thank-you KK

Hi,
If you go to Control Panel > Sound, then click on the speakers and click Properties, there should be an enhancements tab, where there will be a box that you can tick for Loudness Equalization. Then click Apply.
If you play a song or a video while you do this, you'll really notice the difference it makes.
I tend to enable Virtual Surround too, just for the cool effects during some movies..

Hope this helps

    Hi Kathy,
    I'm afraid the only way to toggle bass is to experiment with the various presets in environment (in the same place in the sound control panel) settings..
    Of course you should make sure you have the latest drivers for your sound card. Your LG uses Realtek RTL8100CL/RTL8110Sb NIC Driver, so you could try updating that from the device manager in control panel. Or go to the Realtek website and try the HD Audio codecs, but they might not work if your notebook is a few years old. I would have given you a link, but the Realtek site seems to be taking ages to respond just now, so I'll leave that with you..
    Good luck

The sound output is very low even using earphones can the audio output be upgraded to give a normal listening level.


Probably not without using separate amplified speakers. Check the mixer levels are set correctly.

My volume went low.


These are speakers with their own power?


No? - Get some.



Yes - Win7 - If you speaker icon is missing go to Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Manage Audio Device > Sound. In Playback Check levels and configure speaker setup, like 2.1 or 5.1.
You should also check speaker connections for left speaker.

I can't barely hear sound from my Gateway laptop speaker m305crv? only headphones and extra speakers work! PAUL TUMINO


1. Do you have an external volume control on the side? If so adjust it.
2. Do you have a speaker symbol in your lower right hand toolbar? If so, right click on it, go to open volume control, and adjust the slides.
3. No speaker in the toolbar? Left click START, choose CONTROL PANEL, find the ikon that says SOUND AND AUDIO DEVICES, double left click it and adjust the volume.

The volumree on my acer aspire 5532 is very low jashley01@att.net


If you have turned it all the way up on the manual setting then try and go to your control panel and go to speakers, then change your setting to laptop speaker and then ensure the volume is turned on and all the way to 100. If it is still too low then an aftermarket speaker may be in order.

I have had that laptop once and had the same problem. I knew that it was the maximum volume of the speaker so I purchased external USB speakers to connect to the computer and the sound was clear and loud enough to hear anything played on the computer.

Laptop speakers won't work after installing logitech USB speakers


Okay, go to the HP website and download the speaker drivers. It will require a reboot.

Also, try checking the Control Panel Sound Settings if the volume is low from there. This is because increasing the system volume won't work if there is a mute enabled on the speakers themselves.

Also check if the item 'Use This Device (Enable)' is selected. Go to your speaker properties. It is in the dialog box that appears now. Loom at the bottom of it for a drop down menu.

The volume settings are available in the other tabs. Make sure the volume is at 100 and the mute is unchecked.

Please rate this answer. I want to get to a higher level. I am a great contributor to computers in Yahoo! Answers too.

Acer Aspire 5630 - Low speaker volume, poor quality, OS=Vista


It's likely that the speakers are blown out if it's quiet and making a crackling sound. To fix that, the speakers can be replaced or you can use external speakers.

Loudness Equalization : on

Equalizer: Choose one (Jazz seems to be loudest setting but sounds of hallway effect so I use powerful for clarity.)

This has more than doubled the level of volume on my acer 5570.
