I have recently bought a second hand system from a friend and it came with a motherboard disc. I upgraded to Windows XP and now my speakers are very quiet. You can hear a whisper when they are turned up full, so the drivers are installed. Any one got any ideas ?????. Thanks
Go to control panel / Sounds, speech & audio / Sounds & audio devices / Speaker volume and set them to high. You can also click on the Advanced box (next to the speaker volume one) and check you have the right speaker set up and the performance.
If you click on the first advanced make sure nothing is muted and the slider controls are at least half way up
Another possibility is the Volume Control mixer - double click on the Volume icon in the Notification bar, check that the sliders are set to maximum and that anything that shouldn't be muted is correct.
