Got an HPDC7900, while volume good through prepheral plug-ins - pretty awful through system speaker. Volume on board in all cases checked and working / correct drivers installed and working - Just very quiet. Is this the norm for theses systems?

We have multiple 7900's here and they have quite the solid sound from their internal speakers. Did you attach the speaker internally?

Hi, thanks for the very speedy response.
Naïve question here.
Should the internal speaker not already be installed? Most of our PC's are used with external audio systems and this only became apparent when I had this off, on a bench to test. Seem to remember that the internal speaker on others, was more pronounced than a distant squeak......................
I will take the back off it to check.
On further investigation I noticed that the output on this PC (through peripheral speakers) was lower that one of our other HP's.
Might just have a dodgy piece of H/W.

That might be the case, cause as said these speakers are quite good tbh..

Checked this out - speaker is attached. I am now off-site for a few days. Will check it out again, when back in on Wed.

I am accepting and awarding points. While the issue was not resolved (it is likely that this will be the solution) - I cannot test till mid-next week. - the response and advice at least deserved the points
