I think I saw another post from you. I couldn't answer because I don't know what is your pavillian laptop 15z . Please use the following way to find out model/product of your machine

Please do NOT post its Serial number (s/n).

Looks like it is a CTO machine. Please do a clean install Audio software/driver, this should help.


(a) Download the following driver and save on your computer,

           https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp100001-100500/sp100144.exe

(b) Go to Device Manager, Sound to uninstall sound driver (Realtek) and reboot,
(c) Right click downloaded file and select Run as administrator,
(d) Reboot again.

I tried what you recommended as I have the same issue, and this did not solve the problem for me. I only bought the computer 5 days ago!

I had the same same problem (and only bought it a few days ago too) try the fix in this post https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Audio/My-speakers-have-gone-very-quiet-even-at-full-volume-Th...

looks like my fix was short lived. got back online this evening and I can hardly hear youtube.. any other suggestions before I have to send this back. I wish I had gotten my mac that I originally was going to get..
