Volume drops automatically???????

By jason ·
Everytime I move the volume up on my PC, it just autoimatically slides back down to minimum. Has anyone else seen this?

Any help would be great!!!

Try downloading the latest Audio Drivers from the makers Web Site and install them this should cure your current problem.

That was the first thing I tried. It did not fix the problem.

OK then create a new User profile and see if the problem continues over to the new User Profile. If it doesn't you can move all your data to the new profile and delete the old profile as it's become corrupt.

If it doesn't solve your problem it's time to perform a Reinstall of Windows and all your software.

In answer to your original question No I haven't seen this happen previously but it would help to know the Hardware and OS being used.

Check your multimedia-mouse!

That was the culprit in my case. Switch it off and then on, remove the batteries or the cable, and check all the buttons for being stuck.

The same could be applicable for keyboard offering a volume control which you rarely use.
