I've got a Acer Aspire 6920 and recently installed Ubuntu. It didn't have support for my sound driver so after a lot of tinkering with things I don't really understand I managed to get it working.

The sound volume is way too low however. When I had Windows Vista installed I could get at the very least 500% more out of my speakers. Now with everything cranked up to max I can barley hear anything.

I wonder if there are any hidden volume control somewhere that I've missed or if it is possible for me to increase the maximum volume.

I primarily need to make things louder for playing media, but the low sound volume goes for everything on my desktop.
