Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1318 Notebook ?

How do you turn the volume down? Our son got a new laptop and gave us his Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop when here for the weekend...and now unreachable, Hubby plays poker on it and the sound being made of cards being dealt is irritating after a while...I don't see how to adjust the sound on the machine...Help? On my MacBood Pro, the volume control is in the top line of keys and has icons showing volume. Thanks in advance for your help. (No manual available to us.) s [email protected]


Answers :

In the bottom right hand corner of the screen is an area called the tray. In the tray, you should see a small icon of a speaker. Click once on this icon and an adjustment bar will pop up. With the left mouse button, click, hold and drag the lever down to an acceptable level. Clicking on the lever should give you a short sound so you can tell how the volume is set.
If there is no icon, you need to go into control pane. If this is necessary, write back.
Good luck.
