    Easy

    plug the earphone line out from the laptop straight into the input of an amplifier.

    put the laptop volume to the max and the same with the amp( or half volume for me - depending on how loud you want it to go)

    then you can now control the volume from your touchscreen because its actually making the same volume changes that you would make from the volume control in the taskbar.

    ive done this on my carputer and it works very well.

    You figured out how to sell a bunch of stuff on the forum but have not found the info concerning audio out of a laptop?
    hints:

    and
    external sounds cards
    and/or
    amp(s)/amplifiers
    and
    some more

    you are welcome
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.
