Problem: when i play songs or watch videos or do anything that deals with the sound, the wave slider in the volume control will automatically jump from the high volume that i set it at to mute.

I have checked out the properties and volume control properties and still can't find a way for it to stay un-mute.

My volume control is the SoundMax Digital Audio driver...
i checked the hardware and it says it working properly and i can hear the sounds but only for some time, before the wave volume automatically jumps to mute... :flowers:

this is getting annoying....:thumbsup:

Any one have a solution to keep my wave volume from muting it self permanently...

Please Respond ASAP

Hmmm...you might try using the native XP volume icon, rather than Sound Max.

I have SM on my system but I don't bother to use, I see no advantage to using the XP volume control (I did try the Sound Max control for a period of time) and any program I use for music file playback will have it's own volume controls.

Could be possible file corruption...I might try uninstalling/reinstalling the drivers which load Sound Max (if I really wanted to use it).

One thing to remember about Device Manager...it has no way (that I know of) to distinguish/inform the user...if a file is corrupt or not.

"Native" means the control that is part of the XP operating system.

o i know i do use the "native" volume contorl, thats whats causing the wave volume to reset to mute by itself...

I didn't make myself clear.. Sound Max is the codec of driver that enables me to use the "native" volume control on win xp.... I tihnk the soundmax codec or driver is screwd up or something... i have even dl a new driver but it still has the same problem...

Solutions any one??? :thumbsup:
