Hi, everyone. Does anyone know how to adjust the volume level while in pure DOS without Windows running in the background? I have a Compaq Presario 5240, and the way I normally adjust the volume is by using the volume buttons on the keyboard, or it can also be done by going to the volume thing in Windows and doing it like that, but neither of those things is an option when I'm in pure DOS since both ways requires using Windows-based programs. The volume keys on the keyboard don't work in pure DOS because they work with a Windows-based program: Compaq Easy Access Button Support. I wish I just had volume controls on the dang speakers so I wouldn't have this problem. ...Anyway, does anyone know how to adjust the volume while in pure DOS on a computer like this one?

Don't know of any dos program to adjust volume except maybe dos software to run a cd-rom. With old computers volume control was on the sound card itself or as you stated, on the speakers.
