Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Same exact problem as reported here: No volume below 80% in 12.04 LTS. Fine before with 11.10

Also seem to be same as: Volume range is narrow in 12.04

No answer of any kind has been forthcoming. I've been using Linux for at least 16 years, but I can't figure this one out.

Can you try changing some settings with pavucontrol?: apt.ubuntu.com/p/pavucontrol –  desgua May 6 '12 at 23:17
Will do, and respond. –  Josip May 7 '12 at 2:45
Pavucontrol shows the same thing as the sound settings, only labeled more explicitly. There are lines at 0%, 66%, and 100%. The section from 0-66% is labeled as "silence." The section starting at 66% is labeled "base." The section from 100% is labeled "100% (0dB)." Whereas in the sound settings, the first section is unlabeled, the second is labeled "unamplified," and the last is labeled "100%." –  Josip May 7 '12 at 16:47
When comparing either of these to the settings shown on Alsamixer, the latter shows 0 volume all the way through 0-66% on Pavucontrol and sound settings. Once the slider is set higher than 66%, Alsamixer begins to show volume between 1-100%. Headphone, speaker, and PCM are all at 100% in Alsamixer. –  Josip May 7 '12 at 16:47
This question appears to be abandoned and unanswered, could you perhaps add more detail to your question? If this question no longer applies then you can either delete it or answer it yourself if you've solved the problem. This is to help with the Ask Ubuntu Clean Up. If you feel this question is not abandoned, please flag the question explaining that. :) –  Seth Jan 3 '13 at 4:17
