How can I increase sound volume if my laptop speakers are already at 100% (e.g. for online videos)?

I have all of the volume controls in Windows Vista turned to 100%. I can generally get enough volume when using most programs (e.g. iTunes), but a few things such as online videos are often just too quiet.

Short of hooking up powered external speakers, how can I make sounds louder? For example, is there a program or Windows tweak that would let me increase my volume system-wide?



Billy Rebel: Thanks for the answer. I don't want to use external speakers though, because I use the laptop in many different locations.

Update 2:

Mark: Yep, I'm sure everything is turned up. The speakers can definitely handle more volume, I just need to know if there's a way to increase/amplify it (preferably system-wide).

    Radio Shack sells a volume booster for about $24. It's made for Ipod headphones, but will work with little speakers also.

So i advise taking a glance on the settings on your sound and if this does no longer artwork then attempting the information superhighway web site of the business business enterprise that madeyour pc.
