    this is kind of a dumb question but i just got a new kind of decent laptop and when i plugged my speakers and subwoofer into it it comes out very crappy. there's sound but it's weak and almost no bass but everything is plugged in correctly.

    so just to check i plugged them back into my desktop and they worked perfectly, much louder and tons of bass. so since i have no clue about soundcards i was wondering if the one in my laptop is really crappy or weak and thats my problem, and if so, what type of card do i need just to get some good sound out of this.

    thanks, this is reallly pissing me off

    Some laptops have a external volume control on the side. Make sure that's not turned down. Also check you sound properties on the desktop system tray to make sure it isn't turned down. Assuming this is a new laptop, call the manufacturer if this doesn't help.

    some laptops also have the volume in the bios.
