Speakers on my laptop have low unclear sound

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I have recently acquired Dell Latitude E6400, all was well but the other day my laptop speaker output was barely audible, system volume is 100%, the multimedia application (VLC player) volume is 200% and what I can hear is a low unclear sound, what could be the problem and how can I fix it?
