Angry No Volume Through Laptop Speakers - 05-12-2009, 02:47 PM

I have a mini 12. I have almost inaudible sound through the laptop speakers. I do have good sound through headphones. I am very disappointed that I have to go get headphones to hear anything. Is this a common problem? I have turned up all volume controls to max, no luck.

I am having the same problem. Have anyone any idea what's going on with the netbook? It can't play any sound on the laptop speakers. Though, when a headphone/external speaker is attached to the audio input jack, the sound will come out through the headphone/external speaker mentioned.

Glad if anyone of you could provide the solution for these problem

The sound is tinny, no doubt, but definitely audible. If you have checked the volume and those settings in the Realtek Audio Manager, and found no problem, then you should give Dell a call.

if its inaudible yes, call dell, but the truth is, the speaker does suck rather vehemently. its mono and way to small. thats the biggest problem, and probably my only complaint about the 12.
