    This is wierd, mine is actually quieter with that boxed checked than without, but not by much... this is with playing music. Also, using a G51 if that matters

    Your first suggestion doesn't change the actual output of the speakers it controls the sound of the file that is played on POST. Second, I think everyone has already tried the loudness equalization and it doesn't make much of a difference.

    Has anyone actually resolved this issue?

    You also may want to check under enchancements the equalizer option check select Powerful. It basically increases all the audio bands across the board evenly. It does increase the volume on the laptop.

    I had the G72 and those speakers where louder but I did the same thing on that unit to increase the sound as well. Keep in mind though that if you change the eq settings like this to change them back to none or another setting if you use an external receiver or speakers or your sound output will be too high and thus also possibly bad sounding. =)

    FYI, all this really does is make both speakers produce the same volume. This is bad for anything directional. Thus any sound that requires separate channels will have it produced from both speakers. For example, in games you can't distinguish gunfire from the right as it will be leveled with the left side. So in essence you get a surround effect where you hear gunfire from both sides.

    This is useful for getting the maximum volume from a single source like someone speaking. But, personally would rather have it un-checked and raise the equalizers higher to preserve separate channels.
