Customer Question
Suddenly the sound for...

Suddenly the sound for music on my macbook air is very low, how do i restore proper sound?

Technician's Assistant: Can you still find your music in the Trash bin? Have you set up any backup software (e.g. Time Machine)?

I can find the music still on my machine and its starting slowly but the sound is so very low, its turned to max as far as i can see are there some hidden sound controls for level?

Technician's Assistant: How long ago was your music deleted?

Not deleted, its still there, just the speaker vol is too low

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Its playing but sotto voce

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
