Hi, i have a Dell Latitude D520 laptop with windows XP professional.
When i try to turn the volume control up, set the sliding scale at its highest, the sound is still very low. Also the quality of sound isn't very good ( sounds tinny). Is there any way i can upgrade this, or is there a solution to improve my sound. I have went into my "sounds and audio devices" on control panel to try and improve volume, controls are all set at the highest.
This is the following details of my A & Sound,
Sound and Audio Devices properties, Volume tab, Sigma Tel Audio.
Audio tab;Default device,Sigma Tel Audio; MDI music playback, Default device, Microsoft GS Wave table SW Synth.
If anyone could help would be greatly appreciated

:thumbsup: Lenny

Are you talking about the volume control in the System tray? What about Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainment> Volume Control. See what those are all set at
