If you're using Linux there's a good chance it's using Pulse audio which supports over-amplification meaning if you open the Sound Mixer (right click on the volume icon) the slider for main volume should support more than 100% - you may have to check off a checkbox to enable that capability but it can dramatically increase the audio level.

I have an older Dell Latitude laptop that, under Windows, barely does much of anything for audio in Windows but if I run a Linux distro on it boy that over 100% setting makes a huge difference for the internal speaker output (which also feeds an external speaker circuit if so desired).
