Volume decreases on its own...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm unsure if this is the right board. But I have a problem, I've had this problem on my PC and Laptop.

When I open an application, say Counter Strike, or in this example, Homefront, this happens (see attached). Basically, the volume I had it at, goes "ghost", and the new volume decreases and that's the solid slider you see.


I don't know why. I've disabled the "let applications take control of this device" in playback properties, but that doesn't help.

This is really annoying since now when I alt-tab out of Homefront, and just slide it back up, and alt-tab back in, the game crashes 100% of the time.

Please if you know at all, let me know how to fix it.

Thanks
My Love

Damn, I don't know what to say besides the often unhelpful, "reinstall the realtek drivers." I would look for the lastest version on MSI's website.

Found the problem. If anyone else has this problem. Do this.

Yea, I don't know why this happens. I don't have any communication devices hooked up.
