The volume of my laptop is too low to tolerant all the time comparing with using headphone or runing it on windows7. I can barely hear the audible sound even if the volume slider was moved to maximum. Strangly, the sound becomes loud and clear enough only after resuming from suspend.But it becomes to low again as before after restarting or resuming from hibernation.

Additional info:
Attach two files in the attachments:

Steps to reproduce:
1)Open youtube and watch a video.
2)Pause the video and suspend computer.
3)Power on computer and login into archlinux to continue watching the video.
Now the sound will become loud and clear enough.However,the sound returned back to low level again after restarting.
This task depends upon

I googled many times and nothing could help. I found someone had confronted the same problem with me.
