speaker settings keep changing

i have creative platignum audigy 2 with 5.1 speakers xp pro sp1 and my problem is that from time to time settings in the control console severt to 2.1 resetting and setting as default resolves for some days then same thing again, any pointers please?

In Audio Console -> Speakers tab, put a tick in 'Synchronize with Microsoft Windows Control Panel', & reboot.

Also check in Control Panel -> Sound & Audio Devices -> Volume tab -> Advanced, that the correct Speaker setup is selected.

If the above doesn't help, I would suggest to uninstall/reinstall the Creative sw, or at least the 'Creative Speaker Settings' sw.

If still no joy, consider installing SP2. I don't know why you don't have it installed already, but you may have a good reason for not doing so, do you? G

i do because when i was was working in support call centre 60-70% of calls were where sp2 had screwed pc/connections in one way or another.
but thanks for the other tips

good morning this morning i booted up and lo back to 2.1 in the creative volume control (sound/audio in control panel is set correct though)

i cant find a place to tick for synchronise with windows though but thanks anyway

Hi johnny,

Glad the speaker settings are OK now : )G

This is what I meant (screenshots):

Audio Console - click here

Speaker Settings - click here

i cant find the first pic in settings, and in speaker settings i only have two of the three ticks you show ie no synchronise option

The audio console can be found for me from start | all programs | creative | audio console

Have you tried using the auto update feature from creatives website to update your drivers

  GaT7 18:26 04 Sep 2005

That's strange. Do you have all & the latest Creative Audigy sw installed? click here to run a scan.

Mine is just a standard Audigy 2 - not platinum. Wonder if this matters? G

mught just be the solution
the scan showed 3 critical updates the first (27meg) was audio console which i did not have before
