On your TV link, underneath the display panel, hover your mouse cursor over the second from the right button.

It indicates "Open Volume Controls".

Sorry I can't help with your sound problem but what a good site!

I just tried a few of them (Reliant racing and Lawn mower racing). The sound is perfect on my PC.

All I need now is to find a way of downloading them so that I can put them on a DVD?

pj - glad u like it! wish i could hear it! grrr :@

stuartli - i did that and its on maximum. it wont get n e louder!

i still cant hear a thing online. it just dont wanna know! i dont know what it could be but its not my headphones or volume settings on the com,puter. where else are there any volume controls?

in control panel, double click
sound and audio devices you can adjust volume there also.

Hi, I guess you have checked the volume control in your taskbar, bottom-right, and in Control Panel>Sounds and Audio Devices.

Do you have separate speakers?

You need to check that: a) the output jack plug is inserted in the correct jackplug socket on your sound card (green) and b) that the leads' jack plugs are firmly inserted and making proper contact.
