    Going into the sound properties, there's even this little sound bar thingy that's showing the sound level - and it's only ticking the bottom couple of bars.. yet system sound, player sound, everything I know to turn up is maxed out. Can't play music or watch a damn movie on this retarded bubbleguming thing because the bubbleguming sound is too low. Anything I can do to boost this crap??

    $20 pair of external speakers will solve all of that. Or $10 ear buds.

    Speakers on tvs and laptops generally suck.

    Sound properties on PCs are over complicated and without looking at it it's hard to tell you what to look at. Be aware that you can have the Windows volume and another program as well as hardware and software all trying to control the volume. Before you go out buying other equipment; is this a sudden change or has it always been too low to hear? If it's a sudden change it's probably a setting or a hardware failure (less likely), if it's always been too low speakers may be the way to go.

    This was helpful... inspired me to look for additional apps that might be bubbleguming with my sound, and I found "Dell audio" in my control panel... never noticed that before. I cranked all the levels up in there and my laptop is definitely louder now.

    bubbleguming retarded bubblegum junk software they put on these things. :mad:

    Thanks though

    I suppose that truly is the most important part.
