hi,
down the bottom right of the system tray there should be a speaker symbol click on it and make sure the volume is up full and that nothing is muted

then if that doesnt help look at windows media player (assuming thats what u are using) and turn the volume up there and if u have volume keys on ur keyboard turn that up to full aswell if not try updating drivers for ur sound card or AC'97
goodluck

also if it is 5.1 surrond sound card then try to change the plugs and see what it sounds like then

Hello

I have tried turning up the volume on the task bar, that is ok.

I have a wireless keyboard with sound on it, i will try turning it up when i get home.

Also you said about Windows Media,,,, the volume on the Player is always at 10% is there anyway that i can put it to 100% al the time?

Thanks
Andy

well normally there is a sliding bar at the bottom of the player in which you can set it at different levels
i have a similar set up and when i had probs with my speakers (they were quiet aswell) try turning it up to 100% it should stay that way until you move it again.

also when you open the volume control (from the task bar) go to options propities and select front, subwoofer and anyother speakers you have connected sumtimes the front speaker volume can be at half or even lower so turn all of thoose settings to full and make sure it all isnt muted also turn up the setting "wave" this effects the volume aswell

also in the control panel there should be a shortcut to sound effects manager open that and play with the equlizer settings and see what it says and if you see anything that doesnt look right just put it up to full because you can always go back to your defult settings if it doesnt work
goodluck
P.S are the speakers 5.1 channel or are they 2 channel stereo
can you tell me also if you are using a sound card or straight from the motherboard and if the motherboard has jack sensing or not thanks

so just to clarify
1) change volume in media player
2) open volume control and go to propities and select speaker configurations
3) place all settings to full including volume and wave
4) go to control panel and open sound effects manager and play with equlizer
5) tell me weather it is 5.1 or 2.1 or just 2 channel stereo
6) tell me weather your mobo has jack sensing

goodluck
