1. After starting the game wait for the test screen to run all the way though.
2. Now press the F2 button.
3. Now move down to volume adjustment. Now you can turn the volume up where you want it. Then press a button. It will put you back to the "test screen" Now press TAB go to the dip switch options
4. The first one should say "service mode" turn it to off. Your game will restart. These settings will stay as you set them unless you delete your nvram files.
