I have Ubuntu 16.04 on my Lenovo L540 laptop (the original OS died not long ago) and I can't seem to get the sound to be very loud. I know using this computer when I had windows 7 Pro the sound used to get a lot louder than this. I already clicked the setting to "allow louder than 100%" and put the bar all the way. I assume the answer is somewhere in the terminal.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
