Problem with volume in my speakers

When turning the volume knob up, does the sound not increase at all, or is it a very minor increase in sound.
I am suspecting you may have blown your speakers - try testing a set of headphones or a spare/borrowed set of speakers. If the problem still occurs even with the borrowed speakers, then we would have established it's another issue
Also, just have a quick check if the speaker cable heading into your computer is inserted properly - usually if the cable is half-in the issue you are describing can occur.
Let us know how it goes

Additionaly, you can check Volume Control. Right Click on the Speaker icon in your sys tray (beside the clock at the lower right) and click Open Volume Control. You'll see the different volume levels there. You can go to Options then Properties to see the Volume levels of those you want to see and check from there.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for adding that too, ditrackster.

I believe we must have blown the speakers.
Thanks for your help. I'll just get new speakers and if that doesn't work I'll be back.

If the new speakers do the exact same thing, then it may be a sound card issue.
When this issue started, do you remember doing anything that may have caused it? or did the speakers start doing this while you were playing music alone?

I was not listening at the time this problem started. My kids & wife were listening and told me of the problem. So I don't know specifics of what was being done at the time. All I know is when I turn up the volume on the speaker it does not increase like it should. If I turn it up all the way I can hear the music but it is not loud at all.
Thanks for your help!

It's probably best if you bought some new speakers - since you say the headphones work good, this only points to the fact that the speakers have had it
If you want, you could try Newegg for some speakers - or you could just go to the local tech store If you got o the tech store, tell them about the situation and see if they will let you test the speakers and if they don't work, see if you can get a refund If your lucky, the should let you.
