Sometime ago my laptop speakers have been playing at a very low level even though the volume is turned up to the max. What can I do to rectify the problem?

The make and model of your laptop would be helpful.

It is probably worth your while checking the volume settings in whatever system you use for playback, soome of these have internal volume control sindependent of your speaker volume settings.

 

As an example, I use VLC as my default media player and it has an internal volume control. It is possible to turn the volume all the way down in VLC itself while the taskbar speaker control still show 100%.

I don't think that changed anything for me.

What Operating System ?

 

You could right click the Speaker Icon in the System Tray , and check Volume Mixer Settings , or Playback Device - Speakers { Click }.

Also may depend on what Controls your Audio as to Type and Drivers etc.

 

If still the same , uninstall Audio Drivers and then Reboot , or check for any Updates for them.

I've honestly tried all of those things before, but I'll do them again just to make sure. It's Windows 8. This problem started happening around the time I was using my bluetooth dongle to connect to some headphones. After which the internal speakers never regulated their levels.

I hate to hijack your thread, but I'm having the exact same problem and have tried all of the aforementioned solutions to no avail. I didn't know if I should start a new thread since I created this account precisely for help with this or not. I'm running Windows 10 on a Dell Latitude. My volume has been wanky for maybe a week.

It is typically a good idea to create your own thread. While it might seem you have the same problem, many times it might turn out that there are potential differences. So, it is best to start your own thread and provide the specific details for your computer.

Just out of curiosity, what happens if you remove the drivers for the Bluetooth dongle? I not suggesting this as a permanent thing, but just to see if the internal speakers start working properly again after you remove the Bluetooth dongle and its drivers. This might help narrow down the problem and maybe then help figure out a way to get the speakers working AND still use the Bluetooth dongle if it does appear somehow related to the Bluetooth dongle.
