I sold my STX on eBay last week. The buyer has reported that there is a fault with it.

It would seem that when he turns his volume down, using Windows or a Media program, the left channel does not lower. The right works as normal. This only happens after half an hour. It can only be fixed by a reinstall; a reboot does not solve it.

He didn't say whether using the volume on his Amp has the same effect but have asked him and will update when I find out - from what he has said it would *appear* that his Amplifier volume works as normal, but I cannot be sure about this.

The fact that it only happens after half an hour and works after a reinstall leaves me hoping that it's only a software problem.

I've asked him if he can try it in another PC to verify whether the problem is the card or not.

Any suggestions or knowledge to share on this?

Yeah, tell him to clean all his previous audio software off, driver sweep if necessary. It definitely sounds like a software issue. Also, tell him to take the card out and remove any dust that might be on any of the connectors or the pci-e slot. It has worked for me before.
