I can't get my speakers on my computers to get very loud...even with the "volume" tab scrolled all the way to the top, the sound level is not very high...

Is this something intrinsic with computer speakers? Am I doomed to not ROCK?

Did you double click the little speaker icon in the system tray and move the sliders up?

Easiest way to explain it: control panel, sound options. Play there for a while, you should find it.

In Windows, doubleclick on the speaker icon in the system tray. The little slider in the system tray (when you click the speaker one time) only adjusts the MAIN VOLUME. You need to check your "Wave" volume setting. It's probably cranked way low. If it's Music CDs that aren't playing loud, adjust the "CD Player" volume slider.

Edit: Frickin' Specop 39 damn seconds!



Neener neener.

What kind of speakers?

If they are light shitty little desktop speakers, I wouldn't be surprised.
If they are laptop speakers, I also wouldn't be surprised.

I went in there; they are pegged at the top...

And yes, they are shitty little desktop speakers ("Polkaudio" that came with my HP).

Really, the volume is audible, but not satisfying.

I'm not looking for Spinal Tap "11" setting, but no joy here.

Ya get whatchya get with little PC speakers.
Go drop 100+ bucks for a good set and you'll get Spinal Tap 7.

Hook up the PC to the home theater with 1000+ watts.....Spinal Tap 11.

Yeah, but its one more...

Why not set the max to 10?

Because, its 11! For when you need that little push more!

yup.

The wave was set to about 2/3.

My friend sent me a .wmv and I had to actually pick the speaker up and hold it to my ear to make out the dialog...

Find and reload your motherboard sound drivers. I have had this happen before.
