Windows 7 Sound Mixer Levels resetting


New Member
Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has come accross this issue?

Each time I load a new level in a game, say Left 4 Dead, the sound mixer level for that application resets to very low. I don't seem to be able to stop this happening. I'm not sure if it's related to the soundcard (Creative Xfi Extreme Audio) Sound card drivers (version, or there's a random setting somewhere that is causing this but it's infuriating!


Hello arc and welcome,

Did Windows Update give you an option to update the drivers for your card after activation?

There is a Windows 7 driver direct from Creative that you might want to try:

Also what connections are you using, SPFIF, or analog?
No problem

I had no sound once and couldn't figure it out for a while.....It was muted:redface:
