Question about HP PC Desktops
There are several volume controls which can be adjusted, and work together to control your volume. If you are looking for "stereo-rock music level" loud, though, you will probably not get this from a PC without special (and costly) speakers.
With a typical desktop setup (as you haven't specified equipment involved) there will be volume controls on the external speakers, on the PC, within the operating system, and typically within the application you are using. Speaker and PC controls should be obvious and their location will depend on the specific equipment. I would normally leave these turned all the way up, and then you can adjust downward through the software, if you want generally higher volumes.
If you are on Windows (XP), you should see a volume control in the lower right corner of your screen. Clicking it will bring up a slider, which you can slide all the way up, or double-clicking should bring up a window with controls for all the various components of sound to adjust the mix as well as volume of each. Then, within the particular application, such as Media Player for instance, there is another volume control, and you can slide this all the way up.
So, the long and short of it is that you should have (generally) 4 volume controls, all of which can be set at the highest level. It would also be a good idea to check the basic speakers to make certain that they are turned on, powered up properly, and functional, and then the rest should follow easily.
