Ok, I have Windows XP Professional on a custom built PC:
EVGA 680i LT Mainboard
Intel e8400 @ 3.15Ghz
4GB PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066)
nVidia 8800GTS 512 G92
Creative Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro
4 HDD's
Raidmax 780W PSU

My issue is that my sound will, of its own accord, start dialing up as if the volume+ key on my keyboard were being held down. Ive checked this by unplugging allthe peripherals i had attached at the time thinking in the mess of my room something must have been holding down a hotkey or something, but the glitch still occurs even with all the peripheral devices unplugged. I saw this glitch one only one computer before and I've been working as a computer technician for a couple years now and I simply cant seem to find the cause or any info on what it might be on google. Please help! randomly getting your eardrums blown in sucks!

Do you have any keyboard shortcuts handling your multimedia applications?

None that would govern main system volume, and again this happens with all peripherals unplugged

A different sound card?

There's only the sound device...and the driver/software for said device.

problem is, this is the only card that ever came out with the exact kinds of inputs i need. All the others have some but not all of them. and they arent even selling this card anymore so i cant replace it. im sure its something software related, and therefore fixable

Well...it's not very useful if it's defective, is it?

It's either the card or the drivers...you have tried new drivers, right?

i may have found the problem. The front-end has a cable that connects it to the card, and i readjusted this cable and it seemed to stop doing it after that. my guess is that the part of the cable controlling the volume knob was getting crossed or at least was arcing.
