Left click the volume icon in the system tray in windows.

A slider will appear which you can drag up and down to change the volume on the computer.

If the volume icon is not in the system tray, do this:

Go to Start->Control Panel
Pick Sounds and Audio Devices
Open the Volume tab
Tick "Place volume icon in taskbar"

Now you should have an icon in the taskbar.

If you cannot do this, then you do not have the proper sound card drivers installed and you computer will be playing no sound whatsoever, which is unrelated to your question.

Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean the level goes down, by itself, whilst playing or it changes to the default when you power off and back on again?

How do increase the volume on my acer aspire 5741 laptop

I hope I can help!

If you want to use the buttons on your keyboard to adjust your volume, just hold the "Fn" button just to the left of the windows key, and then push the "up" arrow or "down" arrow. To be clear, those are just the main arrow keys, up will turn the volume up, and down will turn it down (of course).

I hope that helps!

I cant turn the volume up or down using my keyboard volume controls??? What can I do?? I have a Acer Aspire 3000 Laptop.

It may easily be that you need to update the driver for it.

Go to Windows Update, look in the list of optional updates for any drivers and select any that appear.

It should look something like this though Windows XP has a slightly different format.acidburn07.png

If this does not work to locate the driver, try manually looking for the driver in one of two ways:
1. Go to "Start", "Computer" and right-click it instead of left clicking,

select "Manage" from the list that appears. On the screen that pops up, go down to "Device Manager" from the list on the left.

Then, look in the list for any devices that are missing drivers, they will show up with an exclamation point next to them

My HP drivers are a good example of this is the picture.

If these options do not work, you may have to go directly through the manufacturer but you will have to make sure you put in your exact model number.

I hope this helps.

My touchpad still wont work for my acer 3000

There is a button to turn on and off the touch pad. Is there a button on your keyboard that has the letters FN on it? if so hold that down and see what comes up. If not search for any kind of switch near your touch pad or that is on the keyboard that is not a normal typing key.
