Adjusting your PC's Sound
by John Anthony


Sometimes the volume adjustment of a sound source on your PC gets out of whack for any number of reasons. If you are hearing very low sound or none at all first check:
  1. Is your PC speaker cable properly plugged into the Speaker port on your PC sound card?

  2. If the speakers are the powered type make sure they are ON and that the volume control is up.

If these checks are OK then proceed to check the Volume Control.


For Windows 7 and Windows 10
  1. Locate and click the Speaker Icon in the task bar.

  2. Use the Speakers volume control will adjust the overall volume of the sound output.

  3. Each volume control has a spe4aker symbol at the bottom which is used to mute sound.

For Windows XP
  1. Click Start, Programs, Accessories and then Entertainment.

  2. When the Entertainment list opens you should see a Volume Control icon. Click it to open the control.

  3. You will see a vertical slide control for each sound source on your PC and one for the main volume called Play Control.

  4. Make sure each slide control is pushed up and that none of the controls have the Mute box checked. Then try to use your sound device again.
