volume control

By obriengreg ·
I have a client who replaced her sound card with a YMF-724 PCI Yamaha Sound card. Now her master volume control slowly decreases to off. She has scanned for viruses using Norton Systemworks 2000 and ran WinDR. The computer is a Pentium 233MMX with 64MB RAM, 6GB Fujitsu HDD, Spacewalker Hot591 motherboard and a SIS6326 8MB PCI VGA.

I had the same problem - different equipment but same thing was going on. It had to flash the BIOS in order for it to work right and then reinstall the drivers. Hope that its that simple for you.

Have installed the correct driver for the sound card? Try and download the correct driver from the manufacturer's web site.
make sure there is no conflicts occur in the device manager in the system properties in control panel.
Try reinstall all the multimedia options in the Windows Setup of the Add/Remove Programs in the control panel before everything is back to normal.
Otherwise, I suspect that your hard disk contains some corrupted files which need to be cleaned. So, your best option is to either reinstall the operating system, preferably Windows 98/NT/2000 all over again, and the drivers. Or, perform system file checker in the Start Menu\Program\Accessories\System Tools\Tools.
Alternatively, you can use the REgClean from Microsoft to clean the Registry.
Also check that multimedia properties are set to the correct device by clicking the multimedia icon the control panel.

All the drivers have been updated the registries have been cleaned by both regclean and Norton windoctor. The drive has been checked and the software has been removed and reinstalled. I am trying not to wipe the os as I think that is a copout repair.

You may have linked a "Hot hey" to decrease the volume control, each time you use it, you may be decreasing it's volume.

Found the answer. If one is using IE5.0 or higher even with windows95 you must install the WDM driver not the WIN95 driver.
