  1. Absolute volume works only one way.


    I have connected a pair of BT headphones to my ThinkPad L14, Win 10 Pro 20H2.
    System and all drivers are up to date.

    Headphones are Sound Blaster EVO Zx.


    When I turn on the headphones and they connect I can control the Windows volume with the headphones only for a few seconds.
    Afterwards, the ability to control it stops. Then the situation becomes a bit strange.

    I can control the volume on PC and it affects the headphones. When I set it to 0%, the headphones also go to 0%. Vice versa.
    Headphones volume control beeps when I press minus/plus so I know they are physically at their limit

    When I change the volume on headphones, it does not reflect on Windows volume at all. I only change the volume on headphones but Windows volume stays at the same level. E.g. when I change the volume to 0% in Windows I cannot bring it up using the headphones. However, when I change the volume on PC after changing it on headphones, it changes to the given level on headphones.

    I have tried toggling the DisableAbsoluteVolume but it did not help me to control the Windows volume from my headphones.

    It really annoys me that the volume change on headphones is not forwarded to Windows. Even more when it works only for a few seconds after connecting.


    Any help please?

    :)

  2. Keyboard Volume Keys not working while in-game

    I happen to have used the Tt Challenger Pro keyboard in the past, and the volume keys worked flawlessly in every game, so it's indeed a weird problem. I would suggest the same thing sneekypeet suggested, using the keyboard software and assign this function to a hotkey, but you said that didn't work either, so yeah...

    The tutorials provided are just a list of troubleshooting steps. Use only the steps which apply to you.

    Since none of the troubleshooting steps here worked, I'd suggest you do a Clean install.
