Windows 10: Low Volume After Windows 10 clean install Solved

    Low Volume After Windows 10 clean install

    Hi everyone I own a sony vaio laptop and recently did a clean install of windows 10 on it, however I noticed that the volume was significantly lower than windows 8.1. My computer uses Realtek HD Audio.
    I tried installing drivers from Sony's as well as Realtek's website, however there is still no change.
    Can someone please help me with this?

    In the search box type in Sound, the top option should give you the "Sound" control panel, click on that and 1st tab is Playback.
    Now one at a time click on all options for Realtek and click on properties, ensure that the Realtek Audio Output is at maximum in the Levels tab.

    But isn't that just raising the volume to max?
    My problem is that it is soft even on 100,
    Compared how it used to be

    Not necessarily, if the settings are not fully set in the properties that can affect the volume max via the normal means.
    Image 4 also check the list options are all unticked.

    Ohhhh, I see but it still doesn't fix the problem for me :/
    I saw that many users other than myself have this problem.

    As you can see above i have only the 1 Realtek driver but a number of NVIDIA ones.
    To be brutally honest i would uninstall the driver, reboot the machine and let windows find the best driver and reinstall it.
