View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] my speakers aren't able to max volume

June 5th, 2008, 07:56 PM
so when I plug the speaker wire to my laptop 2 things happen that I'm not accustomed to. 1. is my speaker on the computer pklays along with my external speakers, aand 2 my externals aren't putting out the big sound that am familiar with. How Is this Fixed and why does it start out this way? Oh btw, I am using Amarok if that means anything.

open the volume controle and increase all the levels. This helped me.

to my knowledge I did that. I believe it has something to do with the fact that there is sound coming out of the computer when the speaker wire is plugged in. because my outside speaker volume nob doesn't even output until I turn it up more than half way.
