Audio Volume too low


I have a Skylake processor, with inbuilt Graphics card (Non-external). This has a sunrisepoint HD audio.

The volume on my desktop is too low…

I tried to use the “alsamixer” and set it to 100% volume… Still the volume is too low…

Any ideas as how to increase the volume output?.

-Thanks in advance

PS: lspci -vvv output for the audio device

  1. in Yast -sound check levels. Also check what sound device it first and put the one you want as default as first
  2. install pavucontrol and see if that helps you set things

pavucontrol worked…
