A)your webcam is prolly broken or you didnt install software that it came with (if its not plug and play)
b)speakers have a pre-set loudness so theres nothing you can do, buy headphones if you have to.
c)your dvd driver is most likely broken.

At the very right of the task bar should be a volume icon that looks like a speaker. Double click on that, and see if you're volume bars are all the way up.

2. my dvd driver doesnt read anything
Anything, as in CDs too? In this case, it's probably broken. If it's just dvds, you will need to install software to play dvds such as this

if you haven't dropped it then its all down to software apart from the speakers they tend to be low on laptops anyway and some are extremely low.

I got a prob if anyone can help?

on my macbook the spotlight keeps quitting unexpectedly, anyone know what to do instead of a re-installation. my cd is scratched

If you bang your head on the keyboard hard enough, everything will fix itself. I swear.

1) Its made like that. My MacBook's speakers suck too. Just buy headphones
2) Can your laptop read DVD's
3)Probably not installed. Is it built-in or external type?

a) check the volume control setting, or the controller thats built onto your laptop (some scroller or something like that)
b) check if your hardware manager can detect your dvd drive. if no, your dvd drive's a gonna. else, try other discs, maybe its the disc that's spoilt.
c) check your hardware manager and look for your webcam. if not found, try installing the driver and see if it works. if it still doesnt work, most probably you need a new webcam.
