    Toshiba Satellite laptop. Sound volume decreasing. Have it at max and can barely hear it. A month ago it was almost too loud. Any way to adjust this? Seems to me I had heard someone else say that their laptop volume had decreased and there was a way to adjust it. TC

    I think the F3 and F4 function buttons should control the sound level for the internal speakers. Also from the start menu find the "control panel" link and look for audio settings there.

    Everything is at max but that is just barely audible.

    Do you have anything plugged into the headphone jack if you have one on your computer?

    Check the audio settings from the control panel and see if anything is on mute. Beyond that I'm at a loss to explain your problem. Perhaps a tech savy friend can diagnose the problem for you.

    There are a number of places that computers control their volume:

    <ul><LI>Control Panel, Volume Control
    <LI>Control Panel >> Volume Control >> Advanced (make sure master, wave, cd, etc. are up)
    <LI>Volume control in system tray
    <LI>Laptop function key volume (could be Fn+F10-12 or Fn+PgUP/PgDn or...)
    <LI>Control Panel >> Sounds and Audio Devices >> volume control in each tab
    <LI>Volume control in media players -- open up all of the media player programs on your computer and turn their volumes up</ul>

    I have an HP laptop with their premium sound card but the volume was never high enough for me. If there was any noise in the area, I couldn't hear a DVD, for instance. I downloaded and installed "SRS Sandbox" for $29.95 and now I have to turn the volume down.
