Low sound at max

I have a Inspiron 660 and my sound has to be at max all the time because it is not even close to being loud. So is there a way for the sound driver/card to be louder? Plus I have done no tweaking in the sound settings to mess it up.

Hi Thespeedkarter,

Does this happen with both speakers and headphones? Did this situation start recently or have you always had the problem?

I see two sounds cards under drivers for the Inspiron 660. Which do you have?

There may be a background application overriding the volume.

There are three I found I don't know what one it is

1. Conexant SmartAudio HD

2. Intel(R) Display Audio

3. Razer Surround Audio Controller

I wonder if it's the Razer controller?

Go to sounds, playback tab, and see which output device is default.

Grab the Conexant driver from the link I provided above and install that.
