What Can Be Done About Laptop Audio Volume Levels?
June 5, 2007 3:12 PM Subscribe
My laptop audio is so bad (low volume) that when I try to watch a movie, I literally cannot hear what is being said unless I am right on top of the laptop. I have tried all the software tricks to increase the volume, but it's still very low. It's AC97 onboard audio and tinny speakers so I don't expect great full heavy-bass audio - but I'd like to at least hear it! The only solution now is to carry along a couple of powered speakers, but that greatly increases the bulk when traveling. Would adding a PCMIA audio card help at all with the volume issue? Any ideas would be appreciated!
