At the top of your keyboard you have some icons with pictures of some speakers. One shows 3 curves coming out of the speaker which signifies the loudest sound, another shows a speaker with just one curve in front of it which signifies low sound, and the 3rd speaker has an X on it which signifies no sound. Click on the speaker with the most curves to control the volume. Also, at the bottom of your monitor you have a picture of a speaker with curves in front of it. Click on that icon, and you will see how much sound you have. To make the sound louder, click on the bar with your mouse and raise it up to increase your sound. It should also tell you the percentage of the sound that you will hear. To lower the volume, click on the bar and lower it.
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.

Have you got the volume control at the bottom right of your task bar? If you have, can you open the volume control, if you can, does it show it moving? Have you tried a pair of headphones? that will check the speakers and headphone socket contacts. Have you entered and adjusted your Sound Mixer?
you will see a speaker icon on ur toolbar i.e the vertical bar at the bottom of your desktop page.. click on it to adjust the volume.. if that doesn't solve the problen, go to "control panel" and click on the "sounds" icon check if all the accessories shows "working".. if not, the problem is from the sound card and you will have to get it replaced
if you have a little speaker icon on the bottom action bar, click on it and see if it's set on mute. un-check it and all should be right! if you don,t have the icon, then click on 'start' click on 'control panel' click on 'sounds and audio devices', somewhere there you should find an option to put the volume control option on your bottom bar. good luck from there! if that doesn,t work, then your audio may be fried! let's hope not!!
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.
Check the balance settings in the Volume Properties. At the bottom right of the screen you should see a Volume icon. Right click and select 'adjust volume properties'. In the box that shows up, adjust the slider bar to middle under the 'Balance' column.
If that does not work, then there could be a defect with the internal speakers. Since you only just bought the laptop, you should be able to get it replaced under warranty.
