Windows 7: I disabled 'Speakers' in the volume mixer...

29 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I disabled 'Speakers' in the volume mixer...

For some reason, there was sound coming out from both the computer's internal speakers and the headphones that were plugged into it at the time I did this. I tried keeping the 'speakers' volume down all the way in the volume mixer, but this caused all the 'Applications' audio to turn off as well. So I went to its (Speakers) general properties and disabled then applied changes. Now I can't find said Speakers device anywhere in the control panel under 'Hardware and Sound.'

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on an '09 iMac with Boot Camp. I don't know if this directly affects the problem in any way, but just putting that out there.

Thank you.

Volume Mixer issue
I have this huge problem with my volume mixer. I re-sat my TF2 volume to about 24, and now i want it up again, but guess what happens... Every time i then close TF2 or even pick an other server, it re-sets itself back to 24. Please help since i am a sound geek.

In-Game volume mixer
I love to listen to music when I'm playing games. But I use Spotify, is there a program that works like the volume mixer and lets me only change Spotify's volume instead of constantly minimising the game? (One that over laps the game, like xfire) Thanks In Advance :D
