Make sure you Press and Hold the FN key then hit the key that increases or decreases the volume. If the FN key is not held down while you press the volume keys, they will do nothing. The brightness works the same way, you must Press and Hold the FN key then hit the key that controls the brightness.

Dont know how to control the volume, i cannot find my manual


Most of the time their are multiple ways to do this.

1. On the speaker in the lower right hand corner left click and a volume bar appears. Slide it up and down. It should be adjust to 75% IMO.

2. On your keys there should be symbols that look like speakers that should match the color of you "fn" key. Press and hold the fn key and then press the corresponding speaker key to increase or decrease the volume.

3. There may be a rotary volume control on the front of the laptop case. It's as simple as turning it to increase or decrease it.

On the volume bar in windows verify that the muted in unchecked.

You may also look for a key with letters on them in the same color as the Fn key. You want to find the key with a speaker and a line through it. Press and hold the Fn+the key together. This mutes and unmutes your speakers. There is also keys for volume up and down, usually page up and page down, press and hold the Fn key plus the volume up key. There should be an onscreen display of the volume increase. Does this resolve your problem?
