    Hi,

    I recently installed Windows on a new computer (acer Nitro V17 VN7-793G), and installed all given drivers on Acer's website.


    Here's the issue:

    I muted the system sounds through the mixer, but when an event triggering system sounds occur, the sound do happen.

    Except when the sound mixer is opened, then no system sound will occur.


    I tried restarting the Windows Audio through the service.msc thingy, didn't work. I uninstalled the drivers and rebooted, didn't work. I reinstalled the acer drivers, then updated through the properties tab of the sound card, didn't work.

    My windows isn't activated due to invalid key issues, until I get a new one. I ignore if that's the issue.

    :)

  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?
