Headphones or internal speakers? Ya' might just need some amplified external speakers. Or, just don't watch that low-budget porn.

insert what I can only assume is a 3.5mm jack ALL THE WAY IN. seriously, take it out and put it back in. also, check that you have it plugged into speaker/headphone out and not into a line-out hole.

if you want it to play louder, get vlc from videolan.org i believe. its a simple program that is easy to use and you can get the volume louder with it by i thin 200-400% what it should be, i dont have it installed yet so i cant tell you exact numbers

zoom player is another one, but you have to open up the equalizer to make it louder.

and if you are useing ffdshow you can go into its settings go to volume, and get another 300%-900% loudness

now i have to add that this will make the audio sound like crap, and wouldn't be as good as a hardware amplifier.

search amazon for headphone amp, generally sound equipment had major benefits up to a certain point $ wise, so don't spend a crap ton on something there, and make sure that its powered like this http://www.amazon.com/Fiio-E3-BK-E3-Headphone-Amp/dp/B0...

if its not powered, than it wound make it any louder, because its just a glorified volume control.

the one i linked was the cheapest one i could find.

i also suggest you head over to http://www.head-fi.org/ they have helped me in the past a great deal when getting things, just tell them the price range you have, the most, and what you would like to spend... they will point you in the right direction, and many have experience with the same problems you are having.

I just thought it was funny that your attitude is a contradiction (at least in terms) to your rather philosophical quote; that individual posted the comment here probably without any knowledge of the link you sent him. But that's okay; I'm not one to ask people to aspire to something utterly unrealistic
:hello:  Cheers.

I'm replying to this old thread.. But I found a free audio amplifier or an equalizer software which is useful for everyone (Well mostly..):

-Softwares-

EqualizerAPO: http://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/

Requirements:
- Windows Vista or later (currently only Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 have been tested)
- Sound card driver must support APOs (this includes most onboard sound drivers)
- The application must not bypass the system effect infrastructure
(possible by using special APIs like ASIO)


Simple GUI program by Znuff to put inside one of the sub folder:
32bit version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/120650/EqAPO/eq-con...
64bit version:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/120650/EqAPO/eq-con...

How to use by Znuff:

1. Download EqualizerAPO software first

2. Edit the default config file ( \Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config\config.txt ) to read something like this:

Preamp: 0 dB
Include: eq.txt

3. Download the Simple GUI program and drop in the config directory (again, \Program Files\EqualizerAPO\config\)

4. Start the GUI and play around with the settings. You should notice a change in the sound as soon as you move the sliders.

Have fun guys! If you want more information, you can check out his website at:
http://linge-ma.ws/equalizer-apo-config-gui/

So thanks to the great Znuff well he rocks and Ohhh yeahh see ya!

64bit version:https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/120650/EqAPO/eq-con...



The links for Simple GUI are broken though so gonna go ahead and post another couple for future people who also come across this thread in need of a quickie fixie and test this out for myself:
32 Bit:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/120650/EqAPO/eq-con...
64 Bit:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/120650/EqAPO/eq-con...
It appears I found the same links! In case this site broke our links and it happened to my post too, just add fig.exe to the end of whichever links :) . The rest of the stuff I searched around for were all recommending ideas that aren't free.

EDIT: It works! The sound goes kinda lower and higher but it overall is (probably 200%) louder maybe more and you will notice that difference, the sound is also slightly degraded and the bass is lowered.
Thanks manga freak, much apprecitated :)
