Assuming you're talking about a D420 or D430 GMA950 with VoodooHDA audio controller, you can always try to increase iGain either in the kext plist or through the PrefPane if you've installed it. Re: video card, go look for "gmabooster" on the Net.

Mario, I guess that would be on an external display, so similar issue to that experienced by D620 GMA950 users... Here's a GMA950 consistency!  :P

 

You'll find your VoodooHDA kext in /Extra/Extensions. Make a copy of it to your desktop, don't just move it. Right click on that desktop kext and select "display package contents". Double click on folder called "Contents". You'll then see a file called plist. Open it with TextEdit and edit and look for iGain. In the line underneath, enter the desired value (eg: 90). Exit & save your modification.

 

Then copy your edited kext back to /Extra/Extensions (you may have to delete the initial kext first). Then run myFix (full) and reboot. That's it.
