    Hi,

    I have recently installed windows, on a new computer, downloaded the drivers from the official contructor website (it's an Acer Nitro V17 VN7-793G).
    I quickly noticed that I had sounds that resembled the Windows System sounds, but I had disabled the system sounds through the mixer. I noticed that I couldn't track which program it came from, because whenever the sound mixer is opened, then the sound levels attributed to the program to take effect. But if I close the sound mixer, then the mixer's parameters are simply ignored, and even if an app is mute or has around 0% sound in the mixer, the sound emitted by the app will be blasting at 100%.

    My windows key was invalid so my windows is unactivated for now, I ignore if my problems could be consequences of that.

    :)

  2. How can i get the volume mixer sound for a particular game if it's muted from volume mixer

    OT- Sound Issues

    Since programs are only listed in volume mixer if they are "making sound", and you mute it from volume mixer, how can you get it back as listed on volume mixer because if it's muted from volume mixer then it won't make sound for volume mixer to identify
    therefore you can never get it back, but I need volume for the game I'm playing. Is there a way to get it to reappear even though it's permanently muted? I've been searching for an answer but it's all saying to make the program make noise so it registers,
    but it's muted from volume mixer, so how do I get it to make noise??

    Sony Sound Forge 7 won't open since Windows 10 upgrade

    Tried to open my registered Sony Sound Forge 7 software program today and realized that since Windows 10 upgrade, like some other software programs affected, this one won't open.

    (1) Tried some of the suggestions in regedit but didn't see all of the Sony entries listed in the steps

    (2) Tried opening with "run as administrator" - didn't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Sound Mixer Issue

    I am having some problems with the sound mixer in Windows 7.

    Garrysmod seems to not like it! It sets the bar down very low so sound cannot be heard, so I have to change it up to whatever level I want every map!

    PIC RELATED. The bar goes very low, and this is the desired height for it now! Anyway to get rid of the sound mixer feature all together?
