Windows volume mixer

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I hope someone can help me solve this mess.
I've got Asus Xonar DG, and the default Windows sound/volume mixer (don't know how it's called in English, I am using the Greek version of windows), doesn't respond, work.
Already contacted Asus for assistance, but they said "it's something we haven't seen before"
Onboard audio is disabled in BIOS settings already.

As you can see, the soundcard is already set as the primary audio device


At the time I took this image, Winamp and PES 2013 were playing in the background, as you can see, no options to turn winamp or pes sound on/off-volume up/down


Same goes for other applications.
Any bit of help would be appreciatted smile.gif

Hello,

You could try Disabling all Audio devices you are not using,

And only keep the Asus Xonar DG enabled, and set that as primary.

Yep, already disabled everything except Xonar DG, it's been set to primary.
Devices are shown in the picture cause I've ticked "Show disabled devices".

Well, anyone?

Only thing I can think of is to double-check the settings in the problem applications. Make sure they're set to use the primary sound device.

Hmmm, wth, I disabled AMD HDMI Output and that seems to have done the trick.
Everything else was already disabled some months now but...anyways thanks guys for the help even if it was pretty obvious.

Edit:
Applications (games n software) that produce sound, still not show up in the mixer tab when i click it.
It's pretty annoying cause all Ι did before using the Xonar DG but the onboard audio, was to get out of a game for example, press the mixer tab and lower the volume of the game's music, just to watch a video on youtube or something like that. Now I have to quit the game in order to listen to other sounds or music of applications.

I recently had the same issue after reinstalling windows, same card ASUS Xonar DG.
It's a driver issue. I solved it with installing an alternative driver from here.

But with their latest driver (1.72) I had the same issue. You have to use the v1.64 r2 (proven stable).


I know it's an old thread but I wasn't able to find a solution via google, so I thought I share.

I've been using the Uni drivers too, the official ones are outdated.
Nice one posting it right here for people to find a solution to this
