Hi Karen,
According to my ancient volume of Norton ("Programmer's Guide to the IBM 
PC") there is no volume control on the PC speaker itself, which is as I 
recall. What can be done is to replace the speaker with a more efficient 
sound generator like a piezo buzzer. You can then install a 
potentiometer in series on the input and adjust it that way. We have had 
to do that with a lab machine where we replaced the speaker with 
headphones as of course the sound is much louder in the headphones.
