I have a Qosmio laptop which normally has amazing speakers, but I noticed recently that they are exceptionally quiet. My headphones work fine, and are loud, but if I plug in speakers they don't go very loud either. There is a weird sweet spot that I can't hit while adjusting the Windows sound control to make it louder, but it doesn;t stick. I'm wondering if this might be a sound card issue OR if it has something to do with Windows and a bug? Weird that my headphones seem to ALWAYS work fine though, and I plug them into the same port as the speakers – nothing is plugged in when I try to use my built in laptop speakers as is.
