Unhappy LinuxLiteOS for HP 15-f233wm Sound (Not Working !!!) :(

I am trying to find a reason why my sound is to low it seems like every video on YouTube that I watch I have to put my heads phones in to listen to something. My Speakers are so low is there anyway that I can do to make it better in sound or something because I just wonder is it to do with my Computer...

Thanks again Guys

It is already set to a low volume as default well to solve this try to increase the volume from the screen there must a option to increase the sound then to increase it more go and find the hardware option then select sound option then increase the output sound option and increase it !!

I'm assuming you've tried raising the volume in your DE/WM, correct?

Assuming you have, have you tried using alsamixer to see if there's a setting that you're missing in your gui?

If the speakers are on the bottom facing down, you could flip the laptop over so they face you. Although hard to watch the video that way. I tend to use usb powered speakers that I plug into the headphone jack. You probably just need to adjust the levels.

$ alsamixer -c 0
$ speaker-test -c 2 -l 4

$ pavucontrol

If the speakers are on the bottom you can sometimes prop it up on some bottle caps to keep the sound less muffled.
