Hello Wizards,

I listen to the radio on my office computer (at weekends!!!). It is a Dell with speakers built in. The volume is very low. I have gone into the Master Volume box and every control is set to maximum and all the 'balances' are in the middle. Is there anything else I can do to try to increase the volume?

Many thanks for your kind assistance.

Can you increase the volume on the software itself?

Hi Halmer,

How would I do that?

Most laptops also have a manual way of changing the volume, my Toshiba has a little rotary control near the jacks on the front. My daughter's HP has + and - signs with an illuminated bar at the top of the keyboard. If you can't find a manual control, take a look at the Dell manual for your model, if you don't have a hard copy you should fing it on the Dell website.

Thanks a lot chub_tor. I'll have a look on the website for the manual.

How do you actually listen to it i.e. what software?

you use the volume slider bar and round blue button in the top left hand corner.

Hi Halmer,

When I listen to Radio 5 it comes through Real Player and the volume is not too bad but could be improved.

When I listen to Magic Radio I just follow the links and I don't actually see what is playing the music although the volume is poor.

Is this any help? (I fear not.)

to see what I get with Magic Jim.

Thanks, Halmer.

Magic plays on mine with a similar bar at the top right hand corner (via Windows Media Player) with a blue volume button which can be adjusted.
