Hi can anyone help. Every time i start windows the volume control resets itself to zero. You can push the slider up and it just drops back down again. If i start a game up for example, then move the slider it will stay in place untill i restart windows, then it slides back to zero again. I am using windows xp pro, sp3. Been doing this for about 2 weeks been using onboard sound but today put a new soundcard in after disabeling all on board sounds,and installing relevent drivers but i still have same problem. I have tried everything, loooked in bios i can't see anything, can anyone help? thanks Gary
this seems to me to be a sound card driver problem. Very strange though that it is the same for new sound card and onboard system. I would suggest that you first uninstall the original onboard sound card driver then reboot and install the driver for the new sound card. Making sure that you have correctly disabled the onboard sound in the bios.
