Have you checked volume level on certain application or players that you use?
Be sure it is also set to maximum level.

Do you use Winamp, windows media player or VLC player maybe?

Hi

Low sound?
Its not easy to say if it’s a issue or if you just thinking that this is a problem.

I checked the speaker specifications of this laptop and the notebook supports common “stereo” speakers.
Some multimedia notebooks are equipped with Harman Kardon speakers.
Such speakers are much powerful and provide louder and powerful sound. But your notebook supports simple stereo speakers.
My Tecra A10 speakers are also not loud… but this is not a “hardware” or “software” problem.

What you can do is to set all sound volume level to higher value. In task bar click right on speaker icon, then choose “Open volume mixer” and here you should see different volume controls… set all to max level….
I think this is everything what you can do…

On “low budget” notebooks Toshiba build-in stereo speakers only. Other machines have high quality Harman/Kardon speakers.

I really don’t know why you cannot increase volume level. I had L300 with the same speakers and sound was OK. Not the best but OK. If you use your notebook placed on the desk only, I recommend you to buy external speakers. Place them near the notebook and enjoy video content.
