My laptop volume is so low at times on different sites that

I have to put my head down on the computer and at times this doesn't even help. I have checked and rechecked that the volume is at 100% on both my computer and the website I am trying to hear. I have called tech support numerous times over the last 3 years but they tell me there is nothing wrong. My warranty will expire in about 3 weeks and I need to get this fixed but don't know what else I can do.
This is a HP Pavilion dv-7 entertainment notebook with 64 windows 7.

You didn't tell us about the MIXER SETTINGS.

I know that most don't care but the MIXER SETTINGS may be at play here. Most folk know the volume control but what about the MIXER?

The 2 sliders for mixer volume are both at 100%.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
