    I noticed that I have a rather low sound volume on my Dell Computer. I
    it was better than that in the past.

    I have to jack up the volume on the speakers to the highest levels to
    achieve normal sound level which leads to me hearing static and noise.
    That is true for web videos as well as sound files playback on my

    I made sure all the volume sliders are at the Max on the Windows
    Volume Control box (including Wave). I checked the Control Panel-
    are at High. Sound Playback is set to "SoundMAX Digial Audio" - the
    only other option is Model Line Playback.

    I have Dell Dimension 4550 with Windows XP (the comp is about 5 years

    Any thoughts?

    What speakers are you using with your PC? Are they by any chance Dell ADA

    Link to photo of the speaker set:

    If so, it may be the speakers themselves.

    These are Harmon/Carbon basic speakers that came with my computer.

    1) try plugging them into the CD/DVD headphone jack (with the drive volume
    all the way up), -OR- into the lower front headphone jack down by the USB
    ports (behind the front door/flap).

    2) if they're still too low, see if you can swap the speakers.
