Volume is low even when the volume is set to maximum on Windows 10.

Original Title: Windows 10 Poor Sound Quality Conexant Lenovo IdeaPad 100

I have a Lenovo Ideapad 100 with Windows 10.  I have sound, but the volume is very low with no bass, even when the volume is turned up as far as it can go.  I have updated to the latest Conexant driver but the sound has not improved. Is there anything else that I can try? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hey @MR_RM, 

Thank you so much for figuring this out. I think the idea was that it would adjust the volume based off of the app that I am using simply by which app I am using. For instance, if I am using Spotify, and I switch to a web app, it assumes that I need to have the volume down to 80% original volume. Likewise another example, when playing youtube, it would auto adjust volume thinking I am watching a video in public or out loud. 

Thanks so much for this catch. I truly appreciate it!!

Thanks, 

~Varun

I just solved this problem by going into the Windows "Manage Audio Devices" area.  There's a setting on the Communications tab that was reducing volume by 80%.  Change that setting to "Do Nothing" and the sound will be at full volume.  Not great, but much better.
