Windows 7: 50% volume defaults after reboot

14 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64
50% volume defaults after reboot


Every time I restart Windows 7 x64 the volume defaults to 50%.

It is a silly issue to have, because all I have to do to fix it is turn up the volume with my keyboard...but still, it's quite annoying and I often don't notice and crank up my volume on the knob for my 5.1 speakers.

It does not do this in Vista x64, which I have dual booted.

Two output sources:
  1. Creative Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeMusic (beta Windows 7 drivers installed)
  2. Microsoft Lifechat USB LX-3000 headset (always plugged in)(Microsoft drivers are installed)

I did notice that it does not default to 50% when the headset is not plugged in, but it is not really an option to plug/unplug it all the time. Besides, I can keep it plugged in in Vista and it is fine.

Defaults set:
Playback = X-Fi to speakers
Recording = Lifechat microphone

Any thoughts on how to make it default to 100%?
