Welcome to the sevenforums! Spoons896

Are you using onboard or an addon card? It sounds like the Windows sound mixer is all the way up. If you set WMP as the default player the volume control on that will effect the play back of wav files assigned to Windows functions.

The software for onboard or a card installed generally has a sound mixer as well if that went on good. Another place is clicking on the "sound" link in the Control Panel and highlighting the "what'u hear" item in order to click the properties button. On the next screen that comes up open the "levels" tab for a slide adjuster there.

That's an odd one alright! Initially when the betas were first out the 64bit 7000 build was a little touchy simply getting the correct Vista 64bit drivers to work out. Since that time sound has never been a problem with the increased support for 7 being realized now over what was seen for Vista back in 2007!

I can't see where it would be any hardware problem since you have made changes and still run into this. The best idea on this would be if all this is being seen on one installation of 7 which may have gone bad on you. It points more at a Windows problem.

disable volume adjustment click in bootcamp
Hi all, I was wondering if there was a way to disable the clicking noise that the volume up/down buttons make on my mbp in bootcamp. I know the option is available in OSX, it would be strange if such an option wasn't available in windows 7. Thanks in advance, Fyod
