Volume problem when using INTERNAL speaker

by boblalux / December 9, 2012 5:17 PM PST

On my Windows 7 laptop, when I plug in my EXTERNAL speakers, the volume is OK, also when I Skype using my INTERNAL speaker, again the volume is perfectly adequate with my mp3 and audio files. BUT --- when I try to listen to my mp3 and audio files with the INTERNAL speaker, I can hardly hear anything, very weak volume. The volume bars are all on maximum, so what can I do? Strange that when I Skype using INTERNAL speaker, all is OK!

Did it always do that?

If so, you have a warranty or "fitness for purpose" issue.

It's terrible to admit it, but I'm not sure. My second PC is an XP PC, which quite frankly I prefer!!!! Just about everything in XP I prefer to Windows 7, and also Outlook Express, MS Paint, Office 97 etc - just everything. Whenever I listen to anything on the laptop, I connect the external speakers.
Guarantee: It's such a procedure, I won't do it for the audio volume problem alone.
