Having problems with your Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook ?

Very low speaker volume with all controls maxed

\015 Hi, I have a low volume problem with my Tecra A3, running Win XP. All volume controls I know of (tool bar AND control panel) are on Max. The on-board speakers produce about 20% of the volume I would expect to be normal. The Audio driver is Realtec AC97, and the speaker types selected in the properties are Notebook Stereo speakers.\015\012Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you,\015\012FRank\015
