There should be a small speaker icon in the notification area (aka system tray). Clicking on the icon will being up a volume control that you can use to adjust the sound volume. If the icon is not there, it may have been hidden automatically, so you may need to click on the small left arrow button to show all icons in the notification area to find the speaker. If it still is not there, go to Control Panel -> Sounds. On the Playback tab, select your output device and click on Properties. On the Levels tab, you can adjust sound levels.

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.

How do i turn my sound up


The Windows operating system on your Toshiba laptop contains a functionality that allows you to increase the volume.


Your laptop's volume is a measure of the decibel levels of sound that your Toshiba laptop will put out.


If you are having trouble hearing music of video files, you may need to boost the sound volume, which can be accomplished by following several steps.


Press the "Start" button on your desktop.


Click on the "Control Panel" icon then double-click on the icon labeled "Sounds and Audio Devices."

Click on the "Volume" tab then move the device volume slider to increase the volume.


Close the "Control Panel" when you have completed the operation, and your volume should be louder.


Hope this helps.

MAJIC JACK VOLUME IS TOO LOW.


Look into the Majic Jack software for volume controls. You could try increasing the volume controls that are in Windows.

Click Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound. Open it and increase the volume.

You can also get to the Audio or Sound by clicking the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the volume.

Hi, My Name is Henry. I am one of the technicians here.

Have you tried increasing the volume from the control panel settings.

Go to Start - Control panel - Sounds

When that opens double click on the speakers/headphones. Go to levels and increase that.

I hope this helps.

The sound is very low about 30% of what i would expect it to be, Can i do anything to increase it, thanks.


Notebooks are notorious for having very poor sound quality. In order to keep notebooks small and light, very small speakers are used, which results in very quiet output, with very poor sound quality.

Before giving up, check all of your sound settings. Go to Sound from the Control Panel and make sure that everything is set where it should be. Also make sure that the master volume is turned up, as well as the volume control in whatever program is providing your audio.

Outside of that, check out some nice headphones or external speakers, whichever works better for your situation.

Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
