The volume control is either an additional function key(usually in blue or grey on existing key board or F keys) accessible when the Fn key is depressed and held while pressing the other key.

or access go to start,programs,accessories,entertainment,volume control.

you can also put the volume control on the system tray by the clock...start,control panel, Sounds Speech and Audio devices(Sounds and Audio),under sounds and audio devices select place volume icon on task bar.

Volume control is normally located on the bottom right hand corner beside the clock, just double click on the speaker icon and you should be able to adjust the volume.

Dell speaker connection color code needed


  • *Turn off your Dell laptop.

    *Connect speakers to the speaker control box. The speaker control box varies depending on the speaker system you have. Two-speaker systems will have a female jack on the back of one speaker that you plug the other into the second speaker. If your system has a sub-woofer, all of the other speakers will plug into it. The connecting cords are color-coded to the jacks on the back of the control box.

    *Plug an audio cable into the "Audio-In" port on the back of the control box. If the audio cable is color-coded, it will be green.

    *Plug the other end of the audio cable into the headphone jack on your laptop.

    *Plug the speakers' power cord into a surge protector to protect your system from power surges. *Plug the surge protector into a wall outlet.

    *Turn on your speakers and set the volume at a medium level. Be prepared to turn the volume up or down after you turn your laptop on.

    *Turn on your laptop and confirm that sound is coming from your speakers.


    Thanks for rating

    Good luck

    Does the acer aspire ax1300 model have built in speakers, getting no sound for desired alerts


    It has a small speaker for bios events, eg. post codes beeps, but you would need to hook up speakers to hear sounds when you are in windows.

    No sound from speakers on acer 6706 desktop


    First check you dont have a red line through your speaker on your toolbar. If so click it and "UN-mute it.

    Check that the speakers are plugged into the GREEN port on the back of the computer and that the speakers are powered up with the volume at about 1/2 way.

    Open volume control.

    When the box with all the sliders opens up click on OPTIONS (top left)
    Click PROERTIES


    Make sure that Volume controls, Wave, SW Synth, CD PLayer, Line IN, and MIC all show on there and that the volume sliders are about half way up.

    Make sure noe of the sliders have ticks at the bottom, if so UNTICK them.

    If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else unles you know you want that item)

    Now close the slider box.

    Put a normal music cd in your cd/dvd player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

    You should now have sound out of the speakers.

    If not double check that you have no problems with your hardware from the device manager.

    Laptop speakers problem


    There are 2 volume control buttons on the laptop. 1 turns it up 1 turns it down. Try turning the volume up. It may be up high enough for you to hear with headphones but now loud enough to be heard through the speakers.

    I have a problem with an Acer travelmate 530 no sound output anyone got any ideas


    1. check the obvious first:(check... don't assume)
    a.everything is plugged in .. if possible test the speaker to make sure they're working
    b. is your volume all they way up (or at least not all the way down).
    c. click once on the speaker icon on your system tray (where the clock is) make sure you're don't have the sound muted or the volume is all the way down.
    d. now double click on the speaker again and check the mixer volume control.. check items like master volume, wave, audio cd and others are not muted or with the volume all they way down.

    2. if after doing step 1 everything check out ok you you may have a possible driver problem: note: if you see the speaker icon with a red cross (red cross means there's no driver for your sound controller) you need to check device manager for a possible driver problem, do check even if there's no red cross on the speaker icon as it may be a possible outdate driver (for device manager go to start>run> type devmgmt.msc then enter) and check if you have any ! or ? under sound devices. if you do unstill and reinstall drivers or better yet, download updated drivers from sound card manufacturer.

    3. if you got upto step 3.. you may have a faulty sound card, get another sound card and test if it works. (this is unlikely but possible)

    I cant get my built in mic to work for my acer travelmate 2313LCi..?


    I'm assuming your speakers work and you're running Windows XP. Please correct me if otherwise.

    There are two settings for the microphone in Windows XP. One is for the volume of the mic you hear through the speakers. The other is for the recording volume of the microphone (and the volume others here when you speak to them through Skype or another program).

    First check the recording volume:
    Volume Manager (double click on speaker icon on your taskbar) -> Options -> Properties -> Recording -> OK -> Make sure the Microphone slider is at least halfway turned up and make sure the Microphone is selected

    Next check the playback volume:
    Volume Manager -> Options -> Properties -> Playback -> OK -> Make sure the Microphone isn't muted and adjust the volume according to your preferences
