Use Alsa Mixer or Alsa Mixer GUI to change the input volumes of the different sound devices. Also use either of these applications to increase the master volume of the card. The master volume of Alsa Mixer (GUI) is different than the volume control on the task bar.

Hi Right click the speaker icon, open volume control, slide pcm switch up and you should have enough volume. you can then increase or decrease in your apps.

Talking volume increase

Well for system volume u can increase the Master and PCM volume by typing cmd on terminal-

$alsamixer

it opens alsamixer & u can set max volume with the help of keyboard controls.

for playing audio & video files, Get smplayer by typing following on terminal-

$ sudo apt-get install smplayer

If you already install SMPlayer, you can increase the volume. Just click preferences button and then you can configure it. On Preferences window, just go to General | Audio tab. Check “Use software volume control” and set your maximum amplification.

It really works..
