You can adjust the volume on the monitor by using the buttons on the lower-right, front panel.
If the sound on the computer, or program, is still too low, you can try to adjust the sound in the Sound Mixer.
- Click Start , and then click Control Panel .
- Click Hardware and Sound . Under Sound , click Adjust system volume . The Volume Mixer window opens.
- Make sure the volume is not muted by looking at the square Mute buttons below the volume slider. If the button displays a small red circle, the volume is muted. If the volume is muted, click the Mute button to enable sound. The red circle on the speaker icon disappears when sound is no longer muted.
- After verifying that the sound is not muted, drag the volume adjuster up until it is at 75%.
- To test, click the volume slider bar. If you hear a ding sound from all speakers, you are finished troubleshooting. If you still do not hear any sound, continue with the next step.
- If sound volume is low in only one software program, try to find and adjust the sound settings for that software program. For example, if the volume is correct in Windows, but is too low when playing a DVD movie, open the software you use to play the DVD movie and increase the audio volume using the controls available in the DVD software.
- After you have adjusted all volume levels to your satisfaction, you are done. If the overall volume level is still too low, continue to the next step.
