How can I get my volume to work properly?

Question

My computer is kinda old like 2,3 maybe that doesn't matter. Anyway I don't have it real long I got it used already. My sound is very low, I can hear what it is but I really want it higher. I tried every volume or sound property and control but nothing works, so now I don't know what to do. I also tried to istall other speakers, the ones that have volume control on them, but neither of them worked. I really tried every way possible of conecting them. What is the problem with the speaker and the volume???

Try getting a new sound card Your existing one may be damaged Check the volume control on the speakers and on the computer:

On the user desktop, in the bottom right corner, is a small speaker icon If you click on this you will bring up the computer volume control Check that it is not set to silent or muted Check the speaker power cable If appropriate check the batteries Check the speaker to computer connection.
