Sound but not a lot of volume on Dimension4700, SoundMAX Integrated Audio

By witchezpet ·
I have sound from my Dell now, but the volume is next to nill. There are many jacks on the back for speakers, but I don't seem to be able to find one that gives me adequate volume. My jack plug, is in the green one,what others can I use. I have two larger speakers with their own jack, the speakers I'm using now, have two small speakers with one jack. System sounds are okay, but not the add on speaker's volume.

Go into your Control Panel and check if you have a SoundMAX Control Panel icon hiding in there.

It will give you a bit more control over your sound output and by default, is usually set at minimum levels (so as not to damage any audio equipment that might be attached from the very beginning, before power-on for the first time).

Make sure the slider for WAVE output is set to maximum, then adjust the slider for VOLUME to suit your desired output.

Also - these external speakers - are they AC mains powered? Have you tried turning them up/on?

*I'd be interested to know what speakers you are using.
