I have come across my first real problem with Win 7. In any app I use including games, the sound control dial on my laptop does not turn the volume up or down. I can only control the volume within the programme I am in at the time. Anyone found the same problem.
To be honest I am not sure I know what you mean. In XP the volume control on my Laptop turns the volume up/down in any programme that has sound ie WMP or within games. In Win 7 I can only control the sound using the controls within the programme. I have updated the sound drivers with no effect.
My sound control applet installed ok, but gives no control over anything....It's listed as a compatibility issue (AC 97 chip)
The sound works ok, although I though it wasn't until I fired up Doom3 and got blown halfway across the room (had the master volumes on my speaker system set to max!) They had exactly the same issues with this sound chip in Vista....Took them ages to sort it out, seems that one lesson still has not been learned.
I have been looking at Windows 7 and I find it pretty good with exception of my sound it is broken and dragging and not sure how to solve the problem, it does not matter what media player I try it is always the same. Can anyone help please.
