    My laptop speakers used to go pretty loud, but now I have them on full volume and I can barely hear it? Why? Its an HP notebook and I've had it for about 2 years. Is there anything I can do to fix it? Its really annoyyyinnnngg.

    start>settings>controlpanel>sounds audio devices>speaker settings>volume
    if there isnt a +10db option, try moving the sliders up to full

    I already looked there and everything is at full volume :/. This is so odd.

    too much gabba? maybe you blew the speakers... if you can or know how to take it apart it might be worth sticking a vaccum in there as if its old its probably clogged with dust etc which might be related. what sound card do you have?

    Oh man if I start taking things apart it never ends well. It's probably the dust thing then, my house is always dusty :stress:. I have no idea about the sound card. You are lovely for trying to help.

    My laptop used to have really low sound too, but then I turned "3D Depth" right down (i think that's what it was called) and the volume was fine. Do you have that option in your master volume controls?

    Oh it's fixed! I don't know how but one of the settings was changed to desktop speakers instead of laptop speakers. Someone must have been fiddling with it :tard: All better! Thanks guys

    ah! well good thread. i was having the same problem, and couldn't figure it out. then i realized my speakers too were set to external desktop speakers, and not mono laptop ones. then i read your last post. and though.. what a coincidence!

    anyhow. thanks. glad yours are fixed too
