This happens on my Windows XP.

Whenever I press the "UP" key, master volume goes lower.
This makes it trouble to play games because every time i press the "UP" key, the master volume decreases, and after 5-7 or so presses of the "UP" key, the master volume reaches the bottom.

At this point, i am unable to hear anything... (Obviousally, master volume is 0). Is there some sort of a feature that i accidentally turned on, that makes it happen this way?

The Num-Pad seems to work fine.

And I noticed that if i turn off the "explorer.exe" in task bar... Everythign disappears but also this weird volume bug, so i am guessing that the problem is in the explorer.exe

Right now, to get around this weird bug when i play games... I turn on Command Prompt, and the game i want to play then "End Process" the "explorer.exe". So that i am able to use the Arrow Keys in the game, and also is able to open/close other programs i want to use by using DOS commands.

Remove your sound card drivers and all applications associated with it, then reinstall everything.
